Action quotes
Action
He, who every morning plans the transactions of the day, and follows that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through a labyrinth of the most busy life.

- Hugo, Victor
When I contemplate the accumulation of guilt and remorse which, like a garbage-can, I carry through life, and which is fed not only by the lightest action but by the most harmless pleasure, I feel Man to be of all living things the most biologically incompetent and ill-organized. Why has he acquired a seventy years life-span only to poison it incurably by the mere being of himself? Why has he thrown Conscience, like a dead rat, to putrefy in the well?

- Connolly, Cyril
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.
MAD, adj. Affected with a high degree of intellectual independence; not conforming to standards of thought, speech and action derived by the conformants from study of themselves; at odds with the majority; in short, unusual. It is noteworthy that persons are pronounced mad by officials destitute of evidence that themselves are sane. For illustration, this present (and illustrious) lexicographer is no firmer in the faith of his own sanity than is any inmate of any madhouse in the land; yet for aught he knows to the contrary, instead of the lofty occupation that seems to him to be engaging his powers he may really be beating his hands against the window bars of an asylum and declaring himself Noah Webster, to the innocent delight of many thoughtless spectators.

- Ambrose Bierce
Act, don't react!

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.

- Cousins, Norman
I'd rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.

- Schuller, Robert H.
What actions are most excellent? To gladden the heart of human beings, to feed the hungry, to help the afflicted, to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and to remove the sufferings of the injured.

- Prophet Mohammad
No one but a fool would measure their satisfaction by what the world thinks of it.

- Goldsmith, Oliver
Nothing is more terrible than to see ignorance in action.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It is easy to perform a good action, but not easy to acquire a settled habit of performing such actions.

- Aristotle
Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions; but those who kindly reprove thy faults.

- Socrates
The big corporations are suddenly taking notice of the web, and their reactions have been slow. Even the computer industry failed to see the importance of the Internet, but that's not saying much. Let's face it, the computer industry failed to see that the century would end.

- Douglas Adams
In action be primitive; in foresight, a strategist.

- Char, Rene
The practice of peace and reconciliation is one of the most vital and artistic of human actions.

- ThÝch Nhat Hanh
People sitting on top of the world, usually arrived there standing up.

Nor is it always in the most distinguished achievements that men's virtues or vices may be best discovered: but very often an action of small note, a short saying, or a jest, shall distinguish a person's real character more than the greatest sieges, or the most important battle.

- Plutarch
Engineering is a great profession. There is the satisfaction of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realisation in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings homes to men or women. Then it elevates the standard of living and adds to the comforts of life. This is the engineer's high privilege.

- Herbert Hoover
It is our less conscious thoughts and our less conscious actions which mainly mould our lives and the lives of those who spring from us.

- Butler, Samuel
There needs to be bolder thinking, ... on how to measure the quality of life of men and women in the work force. Currently, success is measured by material advancements. We need to readjust the definition of success to account for time outside of work and satisfaction of life, not just the dollars-and-cents bottom line.

- Betty Friedan
