Your will enables you to choose. Choose wisely. He who marries the spirit of the age will soon find himself a widower.

God asks no one whether he will accept life. This is not the choice. The only choice you have as you go through life is how you will live it.

God always gives his very best to those who leave the choice with him.

One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. . . . In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.

Our destiny is not determined for us, but it is determined by us. Man’s free will is part of God’s sovereign will. We have freedom to take which course we choose, but not freedom to determine the end of that choice. God makes clear what he desires, we must choose, and the result of the choice is not the inevitableness of law, but the inevitableness of God.

We put one foot on God’s side and one on the side of human reasoning; then God widens the space until we either drop down in between or jump on to one side or the other.

When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice.

If we are ever in doubt about what to do, it is a good rule to ask ourselves what we shall wish on the morrow that we had done.
