The diary will really try and tell people who you are and what you were. The alternative is writing nothing, or creating a totally lifeless, as it is leafless, garden.
If you have abandoned one faith, do not abandon all faith. There is always an alternative to the faith we lose. Or is it the same faith under another mask?
Degas was obsessed by the art of classical ballet, because to him it said something about the human condition. He was not a balletomane looking for an alternative world to escape into. Dance offered him a display in which he could find, after much searching, certain human secrets .
I have to bow, however reluctantly, to your logic, which leaves me only one alternative.
Radio From Hell: A great alternative to toilet paper.bill allred
It is in scientific honesty that I endorse the presentation of alternative theories for the origin of the universe, life and man in the science classroom. It would be an error to overlook the possibility that the universe was planned rather than happening by chance.wernher von braun
Non-Newtonian calculi... have considerable potential as alternative approaches to traditional problems.ivor grattan-guinness
I am too sick to work and haven't money enough to last 2 months and pay income tax. I want to keep going but do not see quite how, and there is no alternative - rather than justify my mother's 25-year dread of my "coming back on her, sick", I must kill myself. If she has to pay funeral costs, at least she will cut them to the bone and I will not be here to endure her martyrdom and prolong it by living.rose wilder lane
We have always said that in our war with the Arabs we had a secret weapon — no alternative. The Egyptians could run to Egypt, the Syrians into Syria. The only place we could run was into the sea, and before we did that we might as well fight.Golda Meir
A strange alternative * * *Must women have a doctor or a dance?Edward Young
It's all very well to laugh at the military, but when one considers the meaning of life, it is a struggle between alternative viewpoints of life itself. And without the ability to defend one's own viewpoint against other perhaps more aggressive ideologies, then reasonableness and moderation could, quite simply, disappear. That is why we'll always need an army, and may God strike me down were it to be otherwise.
If we don't want to define ourselves by things as superficial as our appearances, we're stuck with the revolting alternative of being judged by our actions, by what we do.ellen degeneres

The more I learnt about this cheeky – almost rebellious – company, the more it appealed to me, as it unapologetically pointed to an alternative in a complacent and creatively bankrupt industry. Apple stood for something and had reason for being that wasn't just about making money.jonathan ive
To avert the danger [posed by theory] to life, Nietzsche could choose one of two ways: he could insist on the strictly esoteric character of the theoretical analysis of life that is, restore the Platonic notion of the noble delusion or else he could deny the possibility of theory proper and so conceive of thought as essentially subservient to, or dependent on, life or fate... If not Nietzsche himself, at any rate his successors [Heidegger] adopted the second alternative.leo strauss
Jesus was an anarchist. … Many of his actions flouted religious, social, Establishment and political conventions and the alternative he offered dared people to return to a natural and simple lifestyle.
It makes sense to ask, "Which methods might work for the problem I'm facing and which representations are likely to work well with those methods? ...Most computer programs still, today, can do only one particular kind of task, using only a single representation whereas our human brains accumulate multiple ways to describe each of the Types of Problem we face. ...we need to learn how to switch to another alternative whenever the method we're using fails.
Social movements will not develop if they refuse to name and define alternative possibilities.
I think the Mussolinean institution of a third way alternative to comunism is currently still very relevant.
Playing God is indeed playing with fire . But that is what we mortals have done since Prometheus, the patron saint of dangerous discoveries. We play with fire and take the consequences, because the alternative is cowardice in the face of the unknown.

The legends of fieldwork locate all important sites deep in inaccessible jungles inhabited by fierce beasts and restless natives, and surrounded by miasmas of putrefaction and swarms of tsetse flies. (alternative models include the hundredth dune after the death of all camels, or the thousandth crevasse following the demise of all sled dogs.)stephen jay gould
Here lies one of the world's rare generalized TINAs. There Is No alternative to creativity and innovation: these days, obscurantism and conservatism will do for you every time.
