Action quotes
The highest manifestation of life consists in this: that a being governs its own actions. A thing which is always subject to the direction of another is somewhat of a dead thing.

- Thomas Aquinas
The great end of life is not knowledge, but action.

- Thomas Fuller
The great end of life is not knowledge but action.

- Thomas H. Huxley
Propaganda makes up our minds for us, but in such a way that it leaves us the sense of pride and satisfaction of men who have made up their own minds. And in the last analysis, propaganda achieves this effect because we want it to. This is one of the few real pleasures left to modern man: this illusion that he is thinking for himself when, in fact, someone else is doing his thinking for him.

- Thomas Merton
The ability to understand a question from all sides meant one was totally unfit for action. Fanatical enthusiasm was the mark of the real man.

- Thucydides
Successful men are defined by thier actions; Unsuccessful men are defined by actions not taken.

- Tom Rose
Action is the foundational key to all success.

- Tony Robbins
Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny.

- Tyron Edwards
The return from your work must be the satisfaction which that work brings you and the world's need of that work. With this, life is heaven, or as close to heaven as you can get. Without this - with work which you despise, which bores you can which the world does not need - this life is hell.

- W. E. B. DuBois
Though a good motive cannot sanction a bad action, a bad motive will always vitiate a good action. In common and trivial matters we may act without motives, but in momentous ones the most careful deliberation is wisdom.

- W. M. L. Jay
Because the results are expressed in numbers, it is easy to make the mistake of thinking that the intelligence test is a measure like a foot ruler or a pair of scales. It is, of course, a quite different sort of measure. Intelligence is not an abstraction like length and weight; it is an exceedingly complicated notion - which nobody has yet succeeded in defining.

- Walter Lippmann
I won't close down a business of subnormal profitability merely to add a fraction of a point to our corporate returns. I also feel it inappropriate for even an exceptionally profitable company to fund an operation once it appears to have unending losses in prospect. Adam Smith would disagree with my first proposition and Karl Marx would disagree with my second; the middle ground is the only position that leaves me comfortable.

- Warren Buffett
A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends.

- Washington, George
The beauty of independence, departure, actions that rely on themselves.

- Whitman, Walt
The one person who has more illusions than the dreamer is the man of action.

- Wilde, Oscar
Wickedness is a myth invented by good people to account for the curious attraction of others.

- Wilde, Oscar
The perfect man of action, is the suicide.

- William Carlos Williams
Your best shot at happiness, self-worth and personal satisfaction - the things that constitute real success - is not in earning as much as you can but in performing as well as you can something that you consider worthwhile.

- William Raspberry
Action is eloquence.

- William Shakespeare
As many arrows, loosed several ways, come to one mark... so may a thousand actions, once afoot, end in one purpose.

- William Shakespeare
