Life and Decisions

Life is just a series of trying to make up your mind.
- Timothy Fuller

Life is just an endless chain of judgments. . . . The more imperfect our judgment, the less perfect our success.
- B. C. Forbes

Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.
- Jawaharlal Nehru

Living is a constant process of deciding what we are going to do.
- Jose Ortega

Life is the sum of all your choices.
- Albert Camus

Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises.
- Samuel Butler

The difficulty of life is in the choice.
- George Moore

Life is like playing a violin in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.
- Samuel Butler

Life is the only art that we are required to practice without preparation, and without being allowed the preliminary trials, the failures and botches, that are essential for the training of a mere beginner.
- Lewis Mumford

The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn.
-David Russell

Life is meant for living.. I know that sounds simplistic, but how many days do you let slip by without really doing something, accomplishing something, making a life change, a lifestyle change?
- Ivana Trump

Life is full of uncertainties. Future investment earnings and interest and inflation rates are not known to anybody. However, I can guarantee you one thing.. those who put an investment program in place will have a lot more money when they come to retire than those who never get around to it.
- Noel Whittaker

People "died" all the time. ... Parts of them died when they made the wrong kinds of decisions-decisions against life. Sometimes they died bit by bit until finally they were just living corpses walking around. If you were perceptive you could see it in their eyes; the fire had gone out ... you always knew when you made a decision against life. ... The door clicked and you were safe inside- safe and dead.
- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Not all of your decisions will be correct. None of us is perfect. But if you get into the habit of making decisions, experience will develop your judgment to a point where more and more of your decisions will be right. After all, it is better to be right 51 percent of the time and get something done, than it is to get nothing done because you fear to reach a decision.
- H. W. Andrews
