Erich Fromm
“Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision.”
Erich Fromm, The Art of Loving

J.D. Stroube
“A complete stranger has the capacity to alter the life of another irrevocably. This domino effect has the capacity to change the course of an entire world. That is what life is; a chain reaction of individuals colliding with others and influencing their lives without realizing it. A decision that seems miniscule to you, may be monumental to the fate of the world.”
J.D. Stroube, Caged by Damnation

Steve Maraboli

James Baldwin
“For I am—or I was—one of those people who pride themselves in on their willpower, on their ability to make a decision and carry it through. This virtue, like most virtues, is ambiguity itself. People who believe that they are strong-willed and the masters of their destiny can only continue to believe this by becoming specialists in self-deception. Their decisions are not really decisions at all—a real decision makes one humble, one knows that it is at the mercy of more things than can be named—but elaborate systems of evasion, of illusion, designed to make themselves and the world appear to be what they and the world are not. This is certainly what my decision, made so long ago in Joey’s bed, came to. I had decided to allow no room in the universe for something which shamed and frightened me. I succeeded very well—by not looking at the universe, by not looking at myself, by remaining, in effect, in constant motion.”
James Baldwin, Giovanni's Room

Mary Hoffman
“There are some choices you can only make once. You can't go back to where you made a choice and then take the other one.”
Mary Hoffman, City of Flowers

Margaret Atwood
“Was this a betrayal, or was it an act of courage? Perhaps both. Neither one involves forethought: such things take place in an instant, in an eyeblink. This can only be because they have been rehearsed by us already, over and over, in silence and darkness; in such silence, such darkness, that we are ignorant of them ourselves. Blind but sure-footed, we step forward as if into a remembered dance.”
Margaret Atwood, Der blinde Mörder

Paulo Coelho
“It's a good idea always to do something relaxing prior to making an important decision in your life.”
Paulo Coelho, The Pilgrimage

Jarod Kintz
“I can take care of myself, but I can’t take care of myself and a child. I’ve decided to give myself up for adoption.
”
Jarod Kintz, The Titanic would never have sunk if it were made out of a sink.

Horace Walpole
“When people will not weed their own minds, they are apt to be overrun by nettles.”
Horace Walpole

“There are things you do sometimes, actions that you take by obeying sudden impulses, without stopping for even a fraction of a second to think, and then you spend the rest of your life either lamenting it or thanking yourself for it. They are rare, unique, and perfect moments.”
Irene Gonzalez Frei

Lao Tzu
“Love is a decision - not an emotion!”
Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

T.F. Hodge
“The ego lusts for satisfaction. It has a prideful ferocious appetite for its version of "truth". It is the most challenging aspect to conquer; the cause for most spiritual turmoil.”
T.F. Hodge, From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"

“With or without God, good decisions can be made; But only with God will great decisions be made.”
Damon Thueson

”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Has No Title

James Patterson, The Christmas Wedding

Jarod Kintz
“With a tough decision, the act of flipping a coin allows you to figure out which you really prefer, because as the coin is spinning, you find yourself slightly pulling for either heads or tails. No need to follow the coin’s outcome—choose the side your subconscious hoped fate would favor.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible
