Choose choice


To choose is to select freely and after consideration; or to decide, form a preference, make a selection, or take an alternative. Choosing, along with ordering and expressing, is among the most fundamental activities of an artist. As a general rule, the more options one can compare and contrast, one's chances of selecting the most satisfactory option are increased.A choice is an act of choosing, or the power to choose, or the person, place or thing chosen. Alternatively, "choice" is sometimes used as an adjective indicating high quality.Quote: "We are weighed down, every moment, by the conception and the sensation of Time.
