Indecision Quotes

Indecision is the seedling of fear.

Napoleon Hill

Indecision is debilitating; it feeds upon itself; it is, one might almost say, habit-forming. Not only that, but it is contagious; it transmits itself to others.

H. A. Hopf

Indecision is like a stepchild: if he does not wash his hands, he is called dirty, if he does, he is wasting water.

African Proverb

The optimist lives on the peninsula of infinite possibilities; the pessimist is stranded on the island of perpetual indecision.

William Arthur Ward

Indecision and delays are the parents of failure.

George Canning

It is human nature to stand in the middle of a thing.

Marianne Moore

Then indecision brings its own delays, And days are lost lamenting o'er lost days. Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute; What you can do, or dream you can, begin it; Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The easiest period in a crisis situation is actually the battle itself. The most difficult is the period of indecision -- whether to fight or run away. And the most dangerous period is the aftermath. It is then, with all his resources spent and his guard down, that an individual must watch out for dulled reactions and faulty judgment.

Richard M. Nixon

You need an infinite stretch of time ahead of you to start to think, infinite energy to make the smallest decision. The world is getting denser. The immense number of useless projects is bewildering. Too many things have to be put in to balance up an uncertain scale. You can't disappear anymore. You die in a state of total indecision.

Jean Baudrillard

Indecision is a common cause for indigestion.

Unknown

Then indecision brings its own delays, And days are lost lamenting o'er lost days.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

He who hesitates is sometimes saved.

James Thurber

I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week, sometimes, to make it up.

Mark Twain

No wind serves him who addresses his voyage to no certain port.

Montaigne

The imagination of a boy is healthy, and the mature imagination of a man is healthy; but there is a space of life between, in which the soul is in a ferment, the character undecided, the way of life uncertain, the ambition thick-sighted: thence proceeds mawkishness, and the thousand bitters which those men I speak of must necessarily taste in going over the following pages.

John Keats

Neither have they hearts to stay, Nor wit enough to run away.

Samuel Butler

You need an infinite stretch of time ahead of you to start to think, infinite energy to make the smallest decision. The world is getting denser. The immense number of useless projects is bewildering. Too many things have to be put in to balance up an uncertain scale. You can't disappear anymore. You die in a state of total indecision.

Jean Baudrillard

Most men ebb and flow in wretchedness between the fear of death and the hardship of life; they are unwilling to live, and yet they do not know how to die.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Then indecision brings its own delays, And days are lost lamenting o'er lost days. Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute; What you can do, or dream you can, begin it; Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A smooth sea never made a skilful mariner.

English proverb

Any work looks wonderful to me except the one which I can do.

Emerson

If I knew what I was so anxious about, I wouldn't be so anxious.

Mignon McLaughlin

I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

Charles Swindoll

It is shades that clash, not colors.
