Action expresses priorities.
Garfield, Charles A.

Schuller, Robert H.
If your sword's too short, add to its length by taking one step forward.
A sedentary life is the real sin against the Holy Spirit. Only those thoughts that come by walking have any value.
Those who are more adapted to the active life can prepare themselves for contemplation in the practice of the active life, while those who are more adapted to the contemplative life can take upon themselves the works of the active life so as to become yet more apt for contemplation.
Aquinas, St. Thomas
Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.
Drucker, Peter F.
We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.
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.
Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often
The greatest of all mistakes is to do nothing because you can only do a little. Do what you can.
In our era, the road to holiness necessarily passes through the world of action.
Positive anything is better than negative nothing.
Judge each day not by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.
Stevenson, Robert Louis
Try and trust will move mountains.
Action is greater than writing. A good man is a nobler object of contemplation than a great author. There are but two things worth living for: to do what is worthy of being written; and to write what is worthy of being read; and the
Action is coarsened thought; thought becomes concrete, obscure, and unconscious.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
The secret of getting things done is to act!
David, Benjamin O.
If you could get up the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.
Being stuck is a position few of us like. We want something new but cannot let go of the old -- old ideas, beliefs, habits, even thoughts. We are out of contact with our own genius. Sometimes we know we are stuck; sometimes we don't. In both cases we have to DO something.
It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.
Keep your head and your heart going in the right direction and you will not have to worry about your feet.
Never confuse motion with action.
There's as much risk in doing nothing as in doing something.
Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
A human action becomes genuinely important when it springs from the soil of a clear-sighted awareness of the temporality and the ephemerally of everything human. It is only this awareness that can breathe any greatness into an action.
Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.
In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.
To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last --but eat you he will.
You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving.
Francis De Sales, St.
Ideas won't keep, something must be done about them.
Whitehead, Alfred North
The greatest step is out the door.
You have to be before you can do, and do before you can have.
In action be primitive; in foresight, a strategist.
When Demosthenes was asked what were the three most important aspects of oratory, he answered, Action, Action, Action.
Winning starts with beginning.
Schuller, Robert H.
People say to me, You were a roaring success. How did you do it? I go back to what my parents taught me. Apply yourself. Get all the education you can, but then, by God, do something. Don't just stand there, make something happen.
The time for action is now. It's never too late to do something.
Act, if you like, but you do it at your peril. Men's actions are too strong for them. Show me a man who has acted and who has not been the victim and slave of his action.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.
Begin somewhere: you cannot build a reputation on what you intend to do.
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
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.
The only way you can bring in the harvest in the fall is to plant in the spring, and to water, weed, fertilize in the summer
Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.
Peale, Norman Vincent
Human beings must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.
Do the things you know, and you shall learn the truth you need to know.
We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as courses, and they come back to us as effects.
