How is the project sponsor chosen?

Can someone tell me how the project sponsor is chosen and who chooses him? Or is that the project sponsor just imposes himself on the project instead of being chosen?

Please explain how this is done.

Project Sponsors cannot be selected by anyone but themselves.  Project Sponsors must be recognized, respected and influential leaders in the business.  They must be close to the Customer, either internal or external and be able to translate their needs into a vision for a solution.  They must champion the business approval of the Project, obtain and protect priority and resources within the business, and select, empower and support the Project Manager.
