Thought is the blossom; language the bud; action the fruit behind it.
Best Quotes about Action
No steam or gas ever drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
Whatever fortune brings, don't be afraid of doing things.
Milne, A. A.
No, Ernest, don't talk about action. It is the last resource of those who know not how to dream.
It is not good enough for things to be planned -- they still have to be done; for the intention to become a reality, energy has to be launched into operation.
Khan, Pir Vilayat
I have never heard anything about the resolutions of the apostles, but a good deal about their acts.
Whoever wants to reach a distant goal must take small steps.
If you think about it seriously, all the questions about the soul and the immortality of the soul and paradise and hell are at bottom only a way of seeing this very simple fact: that every action of ours is passed on to others according to its value, of good or evil, it passes from father to son, from one generation to the next, in a perpetual movement.
Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one's ideas, to take a calculated risk -- and to act.
You can't pick cherries with your back to the tree.
Morgan, John Pierpont
To begin, begin.
Zarlenga, Peter Nivio
A sedentary life is the real sin against the Holy Spirit. Only those thoughts that come by walking have any value.
The greatest step is out the door.
The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true -- action precedes motivation. You have to prime the pump and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day.
Mckain, Robert J.
Thinking will not overcome fear but action will.
Stone, W. Clement
It is the mark of a good action that it appears inevitable in retrospect.
Stevenson, Robert Louis
My friend, why have you drifted so far away? All motion is relative, maybe it is you who have moved away by standing still.
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
Just as there is no loss of basic energy in the universe, so no thought or action is without its effects, present or ultimate, seen or unseen, felt or unfelt.
The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It's as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.
Where there is a will, there is a way. If there is a chance in a million that you can do something, anything, to keep what you want from ending, do it. Pry the door open or, if need be, wedge your foot in that door and keep it open.
Suit the action to the world, the world to the action, with this special observance, that you overstep not the modesty of nature.
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
Let us be tried by our actions.
The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch.
Allow motion to equal emotion.
Doing leads more surely to talking than talking to doing.
The road of life can only reveal itself as it is traveled; each turn in the road reveals a surprise. Man's future is hidden.
You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.
Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself.
He who believes is strong; he who doubts is weak. Strong convictions precede great actions.
Clarke, James Freeman
The greatest potential for control tends to exist at the point where action takes place.
Allen, Loius A.
Take the first step, and your mind will mobilize all its forces to your aid. But the first essential is that you begin. Once the battle is startled, all that is within and without you will come to your assistance.
A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided.
A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God's truth is attacked and yet would remain silent.
It isn't sufficient just to want -- you've got to ask yourself what you are going to do to get the things you want.
Rosen, Richard D.
It is the direction and not the magnitude which is to be taken into consideration.
If you go on working with the light available, you will meet your Master, as he himself will be seeking you.
Only the actions of the just smell sweet and blossom in the dust.
Build today, then strong and sure, With a firm and ample base; And ascending and secure. Shall tomorrow find its place.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
It's better to waste one's youth than to do nothing with it at all.
In this country men seem to live for action as long as they can and sink into apathy when they retire.
Adams, Charles Francis
So many fail because they don't get started -- they don't go. They don't overcome inertia. They don't begin.
Stone, W. Clement
Take action in order to move toward your goals.
When all is said the greatest action is to limit and isolate one's self.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
I'd rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.
Schuller, Robert H.
Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.
Drucker, Peter F.
You don't always win your battles, but it's good to know you fought.
Be both the gardener and the rose.
If you could get up the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.
We will act consistently with our view of who we truly are, whether that view is accurate or not.
