Douglas Adams
“It's the story of my life. You see, the quality of any advice anybody has to offer has to be judged against the quality of life they actually lead. Now, as you look through this document you'll see that I've underlined all the major decisions I ever made to make the stand out. They're all indexed and cross-referenced. See? All I can suggest is that if you take decisions that are exactly opposite to the sort of decisions that I've taken, then maybe you won't finish up at the end of your life" --she paused, and filled her lungs for a good should--"in a smelly old cave like this!”
Douglas Adams, The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Terry Tempest Williams
“I believe we must do things in our lives for the right reasons, because we enjoy doing them, with no expectation of getting something back in return. Otherwise, we are constantly being disappointed." She moved her turquoise bracelet back and forth on her wrist. "So I had two sons, John and Richard, because I wanted to, not because I thought they would rescue me in old age. I got out of all social organizations and clubs in my fifties so I could spend time with my grandchildren, not because they would give something back to Jack and me later on, but because that was what I wanted to do--and I have loved doing it. Believe me, these have been selfish decisions.”
Terry Tempest Williams, Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place

“Strike had never wanted children; it was one of the things on which he and Charlotte had always agreed, and it had been one of the reasons other relationships over the years had foundered.

Robert Galbraith, The Cuckoo's Calling

Chinonye J. Chidolue

Osho
“The choice between good and evil is all a matter of doctrine. In reality, one always has to choose between the greater evil and the lesser evil. Every choice in life is relative. It is not a question of whether what Krishna did was good or bad. The question is whether it would have resulted in good or bad had he not done what he did. The question would be much easier if it was a simple choice between good and bad, but this is not the case in reality. The realities of life are that it is always the choice between greater evils and lesser evils.”
Osho, Krishna: The Man and his Philosophy

J.W. Lynne
“I don’t think you really know for sure what you’ll do until it comes down to the moment when you have to make that decision for real.”
J.W. Lynne, The Unknown

“You can gussy them up with all the pretty rationales you want, but most major life decisions are whims.”
Martha Moody, Best Friends

Paulo Coelho

The other to evil basks.”

“تسافر القرارات الأكثر صعوبةً فوق خيطٍ رفيعٍ على نفخةٍ بسيطةٍ من الرياح. ونحن معها مضطربين، غير مثقلين”
Giuseppe Catozzella

Osho
“Before we set out to do good, it is necessary to consider if it will result in evil. It is equally necessary to know that a bad action may ultimately result in good.”
Osho, Krishna: The Man and his Philosophy

“Just because you say you will do something does not mean that you are also willing to do that thing. Ensuring that both things are true is especially important in the matter of either making or receiving a proposal of marriage.”
Clifford Cohen

Chinonye J. Chidolue

“Each person must design their life-defining tests, determine the best way to accomplish their goals, and dare overcome any obstacles. Our life story is a reflection of our resolute progress of tackling an unyielding personal obstacle course. Because work plays an instrumental role in our lives as adults, what we choose as an occupation will greatly affect our final form and determine our resilience to change.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“The biggest practical decisions for a man to make in his life are twofold: first, whom to marry, if anyone at all, and secondly, what work to do for a living. Marriage ties a man to the finite world of mortgages, overstuffed furniture, doctor bills, college savings plan for children, and the worries of how to support a wife once a man no longer feels capable of working every day. If a man chooses not to marry, his life probably will be less rich emotionally, but his occupational choice is less crucial since he can fritter about through life. In contrast, a man whom wishes to marry has a limited opportunity to pick an occupation, before he casts his future in concrete boots. Once a man marries, the possibility of changing careers grows remote. The importance of remaining at a dependable job to ensure financial support for his growing entourage will trump any unhappiness that he feels in his occupation.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Life presents all of us with an endless string of disconcerting contingences and bewildering coincidences that hold significance for human beings.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“The decision to change direction in life can be made in an instant, but the process of actually changing your mindset may take months or years.”
Dr. Nathan Mellor, Sleeping Giants: Authentic Stories and Insights for Building a Life That Matters

Ayn Rand
“Every man builds his world in his own image. He has the power to choose, but no power to escape the necessity of choice. If he abdicates his power, he abdicates the status of man, and the grinding of the irrational is what he achieves as his sphere of existence - by his own choice.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

“I have come to that fork in the road where one must decide how to live and how to die. No wonder I am agitated to the point of falling into state of irreversible catatonia. Self-doubt and apprehension, along with intensifying self-loathing and fatigue beseech me to stop questing. Why am I am plagued by the dueling dynamism that binds my existence? Does the ball of fears and doubts, and chain of self-hatred and personal exhaustion, which manacle me, inhibit other people?”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls
