Action In Motion quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#1. A static action is never an action. A real action is an action in motion! Dare to do something! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Action In Motion quotes by Donald Hall
#2. Words seem like drops of water in a stream that has its own wholeness and its own motion. #Quote by Donald Hall
Action In Motion quotes by The New York Times
#3. The Concord public library committee deserve well of the public by their action in banishing Mark Twain's new book, Huckleberry Finn, on the ground that it is trashy and vicious. It is time that this influential pseudonym should cease to carry into homes and libraries unworthy productions… The advertising samples of this book, which have disfigured the Century magazine, are enough to tell any reader how offensive the whole thing must be. They are no better in tone than the dime novels which flood the blood-and-thunder reading population… his literary skill is, of course, superior, but their moral level is low, and their perusal cannot be anything less than harmful #Quote by The New York Times
Action In Motion quotes by Melinda Gates
#4. Faith in action to me means going to the margins of society, seeking out those who are isolated, and bringing them back in. I was putting my faith into action when I went into the field and met the women who asked me about contraceptives. So, yes, there is a Church teaching about contraceptives - but there is another Church teaching, which is love of neighbor. When a woman who wants her children to thrive asks me for contraceptives, her plea puts these two Church teachings into conflict, and my conscience tells me to support the woman's desire to keep her children alive. To me, that aligns with Christ's teaching to love my neighbor. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Action In Motion quotes by Derek Hough
#5. How to stick with it.

Inertia is a real thing. Momentum will build. When you do something often enough it becomes a ritual, like going to church or brushing your teeth. You will eventually recondition your body to crave working out and eating the right foods. The circuitry can be rewired. There's the trigger, the process, and the reward. The key is to get it to the point where it's such a habit, you want to do it. Let's take a real-life example that all of us have faced: we haven't been to the gym in a while, we feel sluggish, and we don't want to go. The idea of lacing up the sneakers and hitting the gym feels like torture. The trick is to remind yourself that at the end of that workout, your mind actually feel pleasure. It feels good. Sometimes we get brainwashed into thinking that Gym = Pain, Candy = Pleasure when really it's the opposite: without fail, our bodies feel better after they've been in motion. #Quote by Derek Hough
Action In Motion quotes by Georgie Anne Geyer
#6. An idea is growing in foreign policy circles in Washington ... that there is no turning back. We are stuck in Iraq and Afghanistan for 25 to 40 years, we are embedded in our prideful unilateralism, and nothing can return us to more traditional American values and principles of action. The hubristic creators of this "inevitability" planned it this way ... Their failures in Iraq have not stopped the fanatic, power-hungry neoconservatives ... The hard-liners who dominate this administration ... have led us to eternal conflict with Muslims. #Quote by Georgie Anne Geyer
Action In Motion quotes by Jose Saramago
#7. But it is also true, if this brings her any consolation, that if, before every action, we were to begin weighing up the consequences, thinking about them in earnest, first the immediate consequences, then the probably, then the possible, then the imaginable ones, we should never move beyond the point where our first thought brought us to a halt. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Action In Motion quotes by George MacDonald
#8. Forgiveness unleashes joy. It brings peace. It washes the slate clean. It sets all the highest values of love in motion. #Quote by George MacDonald
Action In Motion quotes by Kendra C. Highley
#9. It was like some mad scientist threw a bunch of DNA into a blender and this is what came out. What the heck could it be? Was it some kind of alien? A scientific experiment gone horribly wrong? Did we have a Dr. Frankenstein living in Billings? Seriously, the creature looked like a resurrected Wookiee made from spare parts. #Quote by Kendra C. Highley
Action In Motion quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#10. It will startle you to see what slaves we are to by-gone times-to Death, if we give the matter the right word! ... We read in Dead Men's books! We laugh at Dead Men's jokes, and cry at Dead Men's pathos! ... Whatever we seek to do, of our own free motion, a Dead Man's icy hand obstructs us! #Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Action In Motion quotes by John Dewey
#11. What, after all, is the public under present conditions? What are the reasons for its eclipse? What hinders it from finding and identifying itself? By what means shall its inchoate and amorphous estate be organized into effective political action relevant to present social needs and opportunities? What has happened to the public in the century and a half since the theory of political democracy was urged with such assurance and hope? #Quote by John Dewey
Action In Motion quotes by Steven Pinker
#12. Many moral advances have taken the form of a shift in sensibilities that made an action seem more ridiculous than sinful, such as dueling, bullfighting, and jingoistic war. And many effective social critics, such as Swift, Johnson, Voltaire, Twain, Oscar Wilde, Bertrand Russell, Tom Lehrer, and George Carlin have been smart-ass comedians rather than thundering prophets. What in our psychology allows the joke to be mightier than the sword?

Humor works by confronting an audience with an incongruity, which may be resolved by switching to another frame of reference. And in that alternative frame of reference, the butt of the joke occupies a lowly or undignified status. ...

Humor with a political or moral agenda can stealthily challenge a relational model that is second nature to an audience by forcing them to see that it leads to consequences that the rest of their minds recognize as absurd. ...

According to the 18th-century writer Mary Wortley Montagu, 'Satire should, like a polished razor keen / Wound with touch that's scarcely felt or seen.' But satire is seldom polished that keenly, and the butts of a joke may be all too aware of the subversive power of humor. They may react with a rage that is stoked by the intentional insult to a sacred value, the deflation of their dignity, and a realization that laughter indicates common knowledge of both. The lethal riots in 2005 provoked by the editorial cartoons in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten ( #Quote by Steven Pinker
Action In Motion quotes by Deborah Tannen
#13. Like most men, my father is interested in action. And this is why he disappoints my mother when she tells him she doesn't feel well and he offers to take her to the doctor. He is focused on what he can do, whereas she wants sympathy. #Quote by Deborah Tannen
Action In Motion quotes by Keith Waterhouse
#14. A consultation process is what some authority sets in motion preparatory to doing what it intended all along. #Quote by Keith Waterhouse
Action In Motion quotes by Diane Ackerman
#15. Flight is nothing but an attitude in motion. #Quote by Diane Ackerman
Action In Motion quotes by Gwen Hayes
#16. His presence in my waking world stirred all my senses. Still in slow motion, I kept walking, warmed wherever his eyes touched me. When I finally dropped eye contact, the world caught up with me
or the other way around. #Quote by Gwen Hayes
Action In Motion quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#17. Whatever I think or feel inevitably turns into a form of inertia. Thought, which for other people is a compass to guide action, is for me its microscope, making me see whole universes to span where a footstep would have sufficed, as if Zeno's argument about the impossibility of crossing a given space - which, being infinitely divisible, is therefore infinite - were a strange drug that had intoxicated my psychological self. And feeling, which in other people enters the will like a hand in a glove, or like a fist in the guard of a sword, was always in me another form of thought - futile like a rage that makes us tremble so much we can't move, or like a panic (the panic, in my case, of feeling too intensely) that freezes the frightened man in his tracks, when his fright should make him flee. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Action In Motion quotes by Carter G. Woodson
#18. Let us banish fear. We have been in this mental state for three centuries. I am a radical. I am ready to act, if I can find brave men to help me. #Quote by Carter G. Woodson
Action In Motion quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#19. Individuals make history, but it's also a collective thing, a wave that people ride in their time, a wave made of individual actions. So ultimately history is another particle/wave duality that no one can parse or understand. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Action In Motion quotes by Norman Mailer
#20. Growth, in some curious way, I suspect, depends on being always in motion just a little bit, one way or another. #Quote by Norman Mailer
Action In Motion quotes by Karina Longworth
#21. Between the action sequences, the pleasure lies in observing impeccably dressed Brits exchanging barbed witticisms - making it, basically, Downton Abbey with cyber crime and shower sex. #Quote by Karina Longworth
Action In Motion quotes by Murray N. Rothbard
#22. It is only in relation to state action that the interests of different men become welded into "classes," for state action must always privilege one or more groups and discriminate against others. The homogeneity emerges from the intervention of the government in society. Thus, under feudalism or other forms of "land monopoly" and arbitrary land allocation by the government, the feudal landlords, privileged by the state, become a "class' (or "caste" or "estate"). And the peasants, homogeneously exploited by state privilege, also become a class. For the former thus constitute a "ruling class" and the latter the "ruled. #Quote by Murray N. Rothbard
Action In Motion quotes by Richard Baxter
#23. Meditation puts reason in its authority and preeminence. It helpeth to deliver it form its captivity to the sense, and setteth it again upon the throne of the soul. When reason is silent, it is usually subject; for when it is asleep the senses domineer ... Reason is at the strongest when it is most in action. Now, meditation produceth reason into act (573). #Quote by Richard Baxter
Action In Motion quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#24. ... and in the same way the innumerable people who took part in the war acted in accord with their personal characteristics, habits, circumstances and aims. They were moved by fear or vanity, rejoiced or were indignant, reasoned, imagining that they knew what they were doing and did it of their own free will, but they all were involuntary tools of history, carrying on a work concealed from them but comprehensible to us. Such is the inevitable fate of men of action, and the higher they stand in the social hierarchy the less are they free. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Action In Motion quotes by Mychal Denzel Smith
#25. But the anger has not only drawn attention to injustice; it has driven people to action, sparking movements and spurring them forward. At the very least, the public expression of black rage has allowed communities and people who have felt isolated in their own anger to know that they are not alone. Anger is what makes our struggle visible. #Quote by Mychal Denzel Smith
Action In Motion quotes by Andre Gide
#26. Our deeds attach themselves to us like the flame to phosphorus. They constitute our brilliance, to be sure, but only in so far as they consume us. #Quote by Andre Gide
Action In Motion quotes by Pegi Eyers
#27. We need to tell new stories about ourselves, new myths to guide us forward, and new manifestos that celebrate our integration with the natural world. Our archaic spirit needs to rise again in a weaving of timeless myths and stories of growth, regeneration, rites of passage, motion, energy, illumination, magic, decay, and all the Earth's processes that dwell both in us and the more-than-human world."
Chapter 22, "Earth Story #Quote by Pegi Eyers
Action In Motion quotes by Chris Wedge
#28. I remember feeling that technology was like trying to draw with your foot. In a ski boot. It was the most indirect way to work imaginable, but the potential had us all excited. I started in stop motion. #Quote by Chris Wedge
Action In Motion quotes by Shelby Steele
#29. Most important, [research on affirmative action] has completely failed to show that affirmative action ever closes the academic gap between minorities and whites. And failing in this, affirmative action also fails to help blacks achieve true equality with whites - the ultimate measure of which is parity in skills and individual competence. Without this underlying parity there can never be true equality in employment, income levels, rates of home ownership, educational achievement and the rest. #Quote by Shelby Steele
Action In Motion quotes by Paolo Nutini
#30. The more I watch politicians in action, it just makes me angry. I watch certain politicians get asked questions that need answers and may just prance around with a big laugh and smile on my face. Politicians have an arrogance. I just do not understand. I've seen more constructive debate since high school. #Quote by Paolo Nutini
Action In Motion quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#31. The virtues and vices are all put in motion by interest. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Action In Motion quotes by Rick Yancey
#32. I was the girl in the background, the just-friend, or - worse - the friend of a just-friend, the you-sit-next-to-her-in-geometry-but-can't-remember-her-name girl. It would have been better if some middle-aged collector of Star Wars action figures had found me in that snowbank. #Quote by Rick Yancey
Action In Motion quotes by George Washington
#33. Every action in company ought to be with some sign of respect to those present. #Quote by George Washington
Action In Motion quotes by Robert Iger
#34. If you're in the business of making something, be in the business of making something great #Quote by Robert Iger
Action In Motion quotes by Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa
#35. The ignorant (uninformed about Atma and without faith) waste their lives. Through their disbelief they alienate themselves from the Self and thus from true unity with others. As miserable people, they cannot be happy either in this world or any world beyond.
People who really know Divinity, who have renounced attachment to the fruits of their work by offering it to the Divine, who have used the sword of knowledge to cut to pieces their doubts regarding the truth of their Atma - no bonds can hold these people. Though they are ever occupied with action, karma cannot taint them.

O Prince, your ignorance of your True Self Within is the cause of your present reluctance to act, just as the opposite of ignorance, Self-knowledge, would bring fearless action. So with the sword of wisdom sever the doubts in your heart. Arise, O best of men, take your stand. Be a warrior! #Quote by Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa
Action In Motion quotes by Gaelen Foley
#36. Heron of Alexandria! I've never read his treatise on pneumatics and hydraulics!" (Kate) cried in excitement.
"What luck."
She barely heard (Rohan)'s droll comment, gasping aloud when she spotted the rarest of tomes. "You have Al-Jazari's Book of Knowledge of Ingenious Mechanical Devices?"
"Do I?"
"I don't believe it! Is this the original fourteenth-century Latin translation from the Arabic?"
"Couldn't tell you."
She handled the aged manuscript with awe. "You mean you haven't read it?"
"Oh, Rohan! Sir Isaac Newton wouldn't have been able to formulate the laws of motion if it weren't for writers like this. #Quote by Gaelen Foley
Action In Motion quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#37. The intellectual part of his nature was already effaced; he had power only to feel, and feeling was torment. He was conscious of motion. Encompassed in a luminous cloud, of which he was now merely the fiery heart, without material substance, he swung through unthinkable arcs of oscillation, like a vast pendulum. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Action In Motion quotes by Noah Galloway
#38. One day the Galloways got a little more excitement than we were prepared for. We moved around a lot and at this point we were living in a trailer park in Auburn, Alabama. Hoss and I were out in the front yard on our regular patrol while my older sister Jennifer and younger sister Sara were playing by themselves. Sara was three years old and I guess she decided she wanted to go for a ride. My dad's blue truck was out in front of the house and apparently he'd forgotten about the parking brake. The truck was in gear as Sara managed to pull the door open and muscle herself up into the cab. As she climbed in and got situated she kicked the truck out of gear with her tiny sneakered foot. The truck started rolling down the driveway toward a ditch. Jennifer started screaming.
Faster than a speeding bullet I leapt into action! I ran toward her, blue cape flying in the wind behind me. I reached the truck. I grabbed on to the door frame of the open passenger side of the truck. I told Sara everything would be okay, and I stuck my heels down in the mud and pulled back with all my might. The mud was spewing from either side of my firmly planted boots as I started to slide along with the truck. I never lost my grip and I am convinced I was able to slow the roll down enough for Mom and Dad to come running out of the house. Dad jumped up into the truck and was able to throw the brake to stop the truck while Mom scooped up Sara. Super Noah saved the day. At least I wanted to believe that. #Quote by Noah Galloway
Action In Motion quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#39. The central plotline of the story of Scripture was set in motion: a holy God making a way to dwell in the midst of an unholy people. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Action In Motion quotes by Akemi G
#40. Karma, which originally meant "action" or "deed" in Sanskrit, is about this system of reviewing our previous deeds and choosing differently. Karma doesn't get back to us unexpectedly. We get back to karma for our highest good. It's like going back to where we bookmarked. #Quote by Akemi G
Action In Motion quotes by James MacDonald
#41. We must not think that action alone is successful Christ-following. In God's eyes, the motives behind our actions are of paramount importance. You can want a godly family or a successful career or a low handicap or a beautiful lawn, but if you want them for yourself and not the glory of God, it's a fail. #Quote by James MacDonald
Action In Motion quotes by Douglas Conant
#42. The action is in the interaction. #Quote by Douglas Conant
Action In Motion quotes by Hannah Arendt
#43. Action, as distinguished from fabrication, is never possible in isolation; to be isolated is to be deprived of the capacity to act. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Action In Motion quotes by Richelle Mead
#44. Another power I don't have," said Lissa ruefully.
I grinned. "Hey, I have yet to meet any spirit user who can throw a punch like you can. That was poetry in motion, Liss." She groaned. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Action In Motion quotes by Channing Tatum
#45. I think the action movies in the 80s and 90s were different. It was a testosterone age. Steven Seagal, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Sylvester Stallone - they fuelled my childhood. But now I don't think I'd like to do just action, I don't enjoy that. #Quote by Channing Tatum
Action In Motion quotes by Nancy Stephan
#46. I believe there's a place on the brink of suffering where all of one's emotions gather like great philosophers. They reason amongst themselves on the best course of action. But it is only when love stands up and decides when and where the line must be drawn that all of the other emotions fall silent in agreement because they know that love is never wrong. It's in that moment of pure love that decisions and action become clear. #Quote by Nancy Stephan
