Action quotes
Action
What should move us to action is human dignity: the inalienable dignity of the oppressed, but also the dignity of each of us. We lose dignity if we tolerate the intolerable.

- Dominique de Menil
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies: 1. Anything that is in the world when you're born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. 2. Anything that's invented between when you're fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. 3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

- Douglas Adams
The big corporations are suddenly taking notice of the web, and their reactions have been slow. Even the computer industry failed to see the importance of the Internet, but that's not saying much. Let's face it, the computer industry failed to see that the century would end.

- Douglas Adams
The anatomical juxtaposition of 2 orbicularis oris muscles in a state of contraction.

- Dr. Henry Gibbons
Study the situation thoroughly, go over in your imagination the various courses of action possible to you and the consequences which can and may follow from each course. Pick out the course which gives the most promise and go ahead.

- Dr. Maxwell Maltz
Time, place, and action may with pains be wrought, but genius must be born; and never can be taught.

- Dryden, John
Art is dangerous. It is one of the attractions: when it ceases to be dangerous you don't want it.

- Duke Ellington
A knave; a rascal; an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave; a lily-livered, action-taking knave, a whoreson, glass-gazing, super-serviceable finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd, in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pandar, and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch: one whom I will beat into clamorous whining, if thou deniest the least syllable of thy addition.

- Earl of Kent
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.

- Edward Abbey
The most important human endeavor is the striving for morality in our actions. Our inner balance and even our very existence depend on it. Only morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to life.

- Einstein, Albert
Our real problem, then, is not our strength today; it is rather the vital necessity of action today to ensure our strength tomorrow.

- Eisenhower, Dwight D.
Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home- so close and so smallthat they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they arethe world of the individual person: the neighborhood 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, and equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them so close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.

- Eleanor Anna Roosevelt

I say fear must be followed by hope. Hope you do something about it. It's a call to action.

- Elie Wiesel
This gives force to the strong -- that the multitude have no habit of self-reliance or original action.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It is the action of an uninstructed person to reproach others for his own misfortune; of one entering instruction, to reproach himself; and one perfectly instructed, to reproach neither others nor himself.

- Epictetus
Action is at bottom a swinging and flailing of the arms to regain one's balance and keep afloat.

- Eric Hoffer
The link between ideas and action is rarely direct. There is almost always an intermediate step in which the idea is overcome. De Tocqueville points out that it is at times when passions start to govern human affairs that ideas are most obviously translated into political action. The translation of ideas into action is usually in the hands of people least likely to follow rational motives. Hence, it is that action is often the nemesis of ideas, and sometimes of the men who formulate them. One of the marks of the truly vigorous society is the ability to dispense with passion as a midwife of action - the ability to pass directly from thought to action.

- Eric Hoffer
Never confuse movement with action.

- Ernest Hemingway
Never mistake motion for action.

- Ernest Hemingway
