A Fragile Immortality
Joane Kathleen Rowling
“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
“If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise.”
“When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice.”
Henry David Thoreau
“There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself.”
Stephen R. Covery
“To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” Kofi Annan quotes While we are free to choose our actions, we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions.”
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
“I know who I am and who I may be, if I choose.”
“The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. stone crumbles. wood rots. people, well, they die. but things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.”
“You have a choice. Live or die. Every breath is a choice. Every minute is a choice. To be or not to be.”
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.
William Jennings Bryan
Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.
All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.
Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
