Action quotes
Action
Man wants to live, but it is useless to hope that this desire will dictate all his actions.

- Camus, Albert
Satisfaction of one's curiosity is one of the greatest sources of happiness in life.

- Pauling, Linus
I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma: but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest.

- Sir Winston Churchill
For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

Actions are the seed of fate deeds grow into destiny.

- Linall Jr. A. L.
When we don't have what we like, we must like what we have.

- Proverb, French
Some people grin and bear it; others smile and do it.

The ordinary man is involved in action, the hero acts. An immense difference.

- Miller, Henry
Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home¨so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person: The neighbourhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.

- Eleanor Roosevelt
There is a Providence which rules this earth, whose name is neither Political Economy nor Expediency, but the Living God, who makes every right action reward, and every wrong action punish, itself.

- History Lecture, Cambridge. 1866.
Ludwig von Beethoven had never mastered the elements of arithmetic beyond addition and subtraction. A thirteen-year-old boy whom he had befriended tried unsuccessfully to teach him simple multiplication and division.

- Jan Ehrenwald.
The reason why so little is done, is generally because so little is attempted.

- Smiles, Samuel
It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.

- Peale, Norman Vincent
Let us, if we must have great actions, make our own so. All action is of infinite elasticity, and the least admits of being inflated with celestial air, until it eclipses the sun and moon.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I would have the studies elective. Scholarship is to be created not by compulsion, but by awakening a pure interest in knowledge. The wise instructor accomplishes this by opening to his pupils precisely the attractions the study has for himself. The marking is a system for schools, not for the college; for boys, not for men; and it is an ungracious work to put on a professor.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
When all is said the greatest action is to limit and isolate one's self.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Wisdom does not show itself so much in precept as in life -- in firmness of mind and a mastery of appetite. It teaches us to do as well as to talk; and to make our words and actions all of a color.

- Seneca
Leadership is action, not position.

- Mcgannon, Donald H.
The atom, being for all practical purposes the stable unit of the physical plane, is a constantly changing vortex of reactions.

PAST, n. That part of Eternity with some small fraction of which we have a slight and regrettable acquaintance. A moving line called the Present parts it from an imaginary period known as the Future. These two grand divisions of Eternity, of which the one is continually effacing the other, are entirely unlike. The one is dark with sorrow and disappointment, the other bright with prosperity and joy. The Past is the region of sobs, the Future is the realm of song. In the one crouches Memory, clad in sackcloth and ashes, mumbling penitential prayer; in the sunshine of the other Hope flies with a free wing, beckoning to temples of success and bowers of ease. Yet the Past is the Future of yesterday, the Future is the Past of to-morrow. They are one -- the knowledge and the dream.

- Ambrose Bierce
