Famous quotes containing the word decide:

    Minimize, eliminate, delegate, and routinize. Decide what’s important and forget the rest
    Donna N. Douglass (20th century)

    Our passional nature not only lawfully may, but must, decide an option between propositions, whenever it is a genuine option that cannot by its nature be decided on intellectual grounds; for to say, under such circumstances, “Do not decide, but leave the question open,” is itself a passional decision—just like deciding yes or no—and is attended with the same risk of losing the truth.
    William James (1842–1910)

    In fact, now I come to think of it, do we decide questions, at all? We decide answers, no doubt: but surely the questions decide us? It is the dog, you know, that wags the tail—not the tail that wags the dog.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
