Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.
Drucker, Peter F.
Don't be a spectator, don't let life pass you by.
The ancestor of every action is thought.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
One of the greatest and simplest tools for learning more and growing is doing more.
The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch.
If you don't make things happen then things will happen to you.
We should not be so taken up in the search for truth, as to neglect the needful duties of active life; for it is only action that gives a true value and commendation to virtue.
Cicero, Marcus T.
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.
Every action we take, everything we do, is either a victory or defeat in the struggle to become what we want to be.
If your sword's too short, add to its length by taking one step forward.
If you want to get along, go along.
The person who doesn't scatter the morning dew will not comb gray hairs
All human actions are equivalent... and all are on principle doomed to failure.
I like these words -- they seem to suggest action: If you hear a kind word spoken Of some worthy soul you know, It may fill his heart with sunshine If you'd only tell him so. If a deed, however humble, helps you On your way to go, Seek the one whose hand has helped you. Seek him out and tell him so. If your heart is touched and tender Towards sinner log and low, It might help him to do better If you could only tell him so.
Some people grin and bear it; others smile and do it.
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.
What you are will show in what you do.
Edison, Thomas A.
In action be primitive; in foresight, a strategist.
Nothing else so destroys the power to stand alone as the habit of leaning upon others. If you lean, you will never be strong or original. Stand alone or bury your ambition to be somebody in the world.
Marden, Orison Swett
You can't aim a duck to death.
The reason why so little is done, is generally because so little is attempted.
If you go on working with the light available, you will meet your Master, as he himself will be seeking you.
Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
Hansen, Mark Victor
Positive anything is better than negative nothing.
In our era, the road to holiness necessarily passes through the world of action.
If you stand still long enough, you'll get stuck
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.
There should be less talk; a preaching point is not a meeting point. What do you do then? Take a broom and clean someone's house. That says enough.
If it were done when 'tis done, then t'were well. It were done quickly.
It's motive alone which gives character to the actions of men.
Bruyere, Jean De La
Don't wait for your ship to come in, swim out to it.
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.
It was prettily devised of Aesop, The fly sat on the axle tree of the chariot wheel and said,what dust do I raise!
It's better to waste one's youth than to do nothing with it at all.
Deliberation is the work of many men. Action, of one alone.
Gaulle, Charles De
God gives the nuts, but he does not crack them.
I didn't think; I experimented.
Speak out in acts; the time for words has passed, and only deeds will suffice.
Whittier, John Greenleaf
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
The end of man is action, and not thought, though it be of the noblest.
The secret to success is to start from scratch and keep on scratching.
From small beginnings come great things.
I did not wish to take a cabin passage, but rather to go before the mast and on the deck of the world, for there I could best see the moonlight amid the mountains. I do not wish to go below now.
Thoreau, Henry David
You must get involved to have an impact. No one is impressed with the won-lost record of the referee.
Holcomb, John H.
It's easy to work for somebody else; all you have to do is show up.
Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Try and trust will move mountains.
How to gain, how to keep, how to recover happiness is in fact for most men at all times the secret motive o all they do, and of all they are willing to endure.
Inge, Dean William R.
The chief difference between words and deeds is that words are always intended for men for their approbation, but deeds can be done only for God.
Tolstoy, Count Leo
