Best Quotes about Action
Ideas won't keep, something must be done about them.
Whitehead, Alfred North
Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.
If you want to get along, go along.

A well begun is half ended.
Never confuse motion with action.
One thought driven home is better than three left on base.
One mustn't allow acting to be like stockbroker -- you must not take it just as a means of earning a living, to go down every day to do a job of work.

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is on a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
God gives the nuts, but he does not crack them.
That spot of earth has special charms for me, in which a limited income produces happiness, and moderate wealth abundance.
Martial, Marcus Valerius
If you act like you know what you're doing, you can do anything you want -- except neurosurgery.
You have to be before you can do, and do before you can have.
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.
Logic will not change an emotion, but action will.
All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire.
You prove your worth with your actions, not with your mouth.
Better do a good deed near at home than go far away to burn incense.
Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting a particular way. We become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions.

It's motive alone which gives character to the actions of men.
Bruyere, Jean De La
The only correct actions are those that demand no explanation and no apology.
Whatever you do may seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it.
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.
A gold medal is a wonderful thing, but if you're not enough without the medal, you'll never be enough with it.

Judge each day not by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.
Stevenson, Robert Louis
You won't skid if you stay in a rut.
If it were done when 'tis done, then t'were well. It were done quickly.
Let every man or woman here, if you never hear me again, remember this, that if you wish to be great at all, you must begin where you are and with what you are. He who would be great anywhere must first be great in his own Philadelphia.
Conwell, Russel H.
Before you can do something you must first be something.

Zarlenga, Peter Nivio
We become just by performing just action, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave action.
The soul is made for action, and cannot rest till it be employed. Idleness is its rust. Unless it will up and think and taste and see, all is in vain.
The sure conviction that we could if we wanted to is the reason so many good minds are idle.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.
