Action quotes by Mitchell Ivers
#1. We all know what good writing is: It's the novel we can't put down, the poem we never forget, the speech that changes the way we look at the world. It's the article that tells us when, where, and how, the essay that clarifies what was hazy before. Good writing is the memo that gets action, the letter that says what a phone call can't. It's the movie that makes us cry, the TV show that makes us laugh, the lyrics to the song we can't stop singing, the advertisement that makes us buy. Good writing can take form in prose or poetry, fiction or nonfiction. It can be formal or informal, literary or colloquial. The rules and tools for achieving each are different, but one difficult-to-define quality runs through them all: style. "Effectiveness of assertion" was George Bernard Shaw's definition of style. "Proper words in proper places" was Jonathan Swift's. You #Quote by Mitchell Ivers
Action quotes by Peter Berg
#2. People know I love to shoot action and that I'm not afraid of emotion. #Quote by Peter Berg
Action quotes by Khalil
#3. I would not have thee believe in what I say nor trust in what I do - for my words are naught but thy own thoughts in sound and my deeds thy own hopes in action. #Quote by Khalil
Action quotes by Dolores Huerta
#4. The thing about nonviolence is that it spreads. When you get people to participate in nonviolent action - whether it's a fast, a march, a boycott, or a picket line - people hear you, people see you, people are learning from that action. #Quote by Dolores Huerta
Action quotes by Henrik Ibsen
#5. A thousand words leave not the same deep impression as does a single deed. #Quote by Henrik Ibsen
Action quotes by Agatha Christie
#6. The eye is diverted from the real business, it is caught by the spectacular action that means nothing
nothing at all. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Action quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#7. 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. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Action quotes by Colin Powell
#8. The chief condition on which, life, health and vigor depend on, is action. It is by action that an organism develops its faculties, increases its energy, and attains the fulfillment of its destiny. #Quote by Colin Powell
Action quotes by Karen Witemeyer
#9. Tori chanced a glance out of the corner of her eye to the man at her side. His attention appeared riveted to the road in front of them. Good. He probably didn't even notice. His head suddenly swiveled her way as if he sensed her gaze. He winked at her. Winked! "I gotta say your stamina is impressive." His voice held a warm, teasing lilt. "I didn't think you'd make it past Mrs. Cooper's chicken farm with that iron-poker spine, and here you lasted three times as long." Tori stiffened, then realized the irony of the action and settled for pursing her lips instead. "I'm sure I have no idea what you are talking about." Mr. Porter chuckled. "And here I'd always thought you the honest type." Tori #Quote by Karen Witemeyer
Action quotes by Jim Butcher
#10. All power is the same. Magic. Physical strength. Economic strength. Political strength. It all serves a single purpose-it gives its possessor a broader spectrum of choices. It creates alternative courses of action. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Action quotes by Lisa Shearin
#11. The Guardian's eyes widened with amazement, and he tightened his grip on me. He had my arms, so the action I was forced to take was entirely his fault. It was as direct as my previous action, but not nearly as polite.
In the next instant, the Guardian was on his knees trying to remember how to breath. #Quote by Lisa Shearin
Action quotes by Libba Bray
#12. I'm sorry,' he says simply. 'People make mistakes, Gemma. We take the wrong action for the right reasons, and the right action for the wrong reasons. #Quote by Libba Bray
Action quotes by Dean Koontz
#13. A plot without action is like pasta without garlic, like Dolly Parton without cleavage, and like a writer without his similes. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Action quotes by Neal Stephenson
#14. But the television news cameras couldn't get anywhere near the action, so the coverage mostly consisted of journalists interviewing each other about how little they knew. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Action quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#15. Happy are those lovers who, when their senses require rest, can fall back upon the intellectual enjoyments afforded by the mind! Sweet sleep then comes, and lasts until the body has recovered its general harmony. On awaking, the senses are again active and always ready to resume their action. #Quote by Giacomo Casanova
Action quotes by Stephanie Dowrick
#16. Restraint offers a space between intention and action and the opportunity to protect others from actions or reactions that should exist only in your imagination #Quote by Stephanie Dowrick
Action quotes by Daphne Du Maurier
#17. Life and death do not wait for legal action. #Quote by Daphne Du Maurier
Action quotes by Noam Chomsky
#18. So understood, anarchism is the inheritor of the classical liberal ideas that emerged from the Enlightenment. It is part of a broader range of libertarian socialist thought and action that ranges from the left anti-Bolshevik Marxism of Anton Pannekoek, Karl Korsch, Paul Mattick, and others, to the anarcho-syndicalism that crucially includes the practical achievements of revolutionary Spain in 1936, reaching further to worker-owned enterprises spreading today in the Rust Belt of the United States, in northern Mexico, in Egypt, and in many other countries, most extensively in the Basque country in Spain, also encompassing the many cooperative movements around the world and a good part of feminist and civil and human rights initiatives. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Action quotes by Robert Wright
#19. [I]f it be any part of religion to believe that man was made by a good Being, it is more consistent with that faith to believe, that this Being gave all human faculties that they might be cultivated and unfolded, not rooted out and consumed, and that he takes delight in every nearer approach made by his creatures to the ideal conception embodied in them, every increase in any of their capabilities of comprehension, of action, or of enjoyment. #Quote by Robert Wright
Action quotes by Jon Jones
#20. Change quotes were meant to move us from inaction to action. #Quote by Jon Jones
Action quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#21. Heaven and hell seem out of proportion to me: the actions of men do not deserve so much. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Action quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#22. Failure to summon forth the courage to risk a nondogmatic and nonevasive stance on such crucial existential matters can also blur our ethical vision. If our actions in the world are to stem from an encounter with what is central in life, they must be unclouded by either dogma or prevarication. Agnosticism is no excuse for indecision. If anything, it is a catalyst for action; for in shifting concern away from a future life and back to the present, it demands an ethics of empathy rather than a metaphysics of fear and hope. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Action quotes by Tami Egonu
#23. You can vent your anger and think that others are to blame when in truth the anger you carry belongs to you.
Learn to accept responsibility for every action.
Learn to let go of preconception.
Learn to let go of what you have learnt in your life.
Travel lightly and you will find the journey has far more enlightenment than you could ever have imagined. #Quote by Tami Egonu
Action quotes by Graeme Simsion
#24. I was having trouble making sense of all that Rosie was saying, doubtless due to the effects of the alcohol and her perfume. However, she had given me an opportunity to keep the conversation on safe ground. The inheritance of common genetically influenced traits such as eye colour is more complex than is generally understood, and I was confident that I could speak on the topic for long enough to occupy the remainder of our journey. But I realised that this was a defensive action and impolite to Rosie who had risked considerable embarrassment and damage to her relationship with Stefan for my benefit. #Quote by Graeme Simsion
Action quotes by Chief Joseph
#25. Good words do not last long unless they amount to something. #Quote by Chief Joseph
Action quotes by Brian Tracy
#26. If you have a clear goal and a plan to achieve it, your focus is fixed on a set course of action. Instead of becoming sidetracked by distractions and diversions, your time is focused on a straight line from start to finish. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Action quotes by Salman Rushdie
#27. When thought becomes excessively painful, action is the finest remedy. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Action quotes by Eli Hinze
#28. There are simply some laws we must transgress, no matter the penalty. #Quote by Eli Hinze
Action quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#29. God created us to be worshipers because it is right that he be known, loved and worshiped. This isn't because he is needy and wishes someone would tell him how special he is. No, it's because he is perfect and the worship of his perfection is holiness in action. #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
Action quotes by Action Bronson
#30. My childhood was great, honestly. I have all these incredible memories of my childhood. I was an only child. I always had all my cousins around. I had my grandparents around. I had my parents around. I had my uncles around - whatever. #Quote by Action Bronson
Action quotes by Brene Brown
#31. Men and women who live Wholeheartedly do indeed DIG Deep. They just do it in a different way. When they're exhausted and overwhelmed, they get Deliberate in their thoughts and behaviors through prayer, meditation, or simply setting their intentions; Inspired to make new and different choices; Going. They take action. Since I made that discovery, I've been DIGging Deep the new way, and it's been pretty amazing. #Quote by Brene Brown
Action quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#32. Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself? LAO-TZU, Tao-te-Ching #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Action quotes by Sydney Marie Hughes
#33. Do not think me a maiden who needs saving from a dragon. I am the dragon, and I will set the world aflame. #Quote by Sydney Marie Hughes
Action quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#34. What is destiny? It's simply the path of tomorrow. What is tomorrow? It's simply the projection of today. And your action today is the only force that forges the destiny of not just your own, but indeed of your society, for your life is not separate from your society. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Action quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#35. To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude. #Quote by Albert Schweitzer
Action quotes by Barbara Bissonnette
#36. Coaching offers customized, one-on-one support to assist individuals in reaching their goals. The process involves goal setting, identifying obstacles, brainstorming solutions and creating a workable action plan. #Quote by Barbara Bissonnette
Action quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#37. Hope combined with action is the only thing that will bring you contentment. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Action quotes by Eric Fellner
#38. It wasn't like we cut songs out; we cut bits of songs, bits of action or bits of whatever. So we would have to go back in get a full orchestra re-orchestrate it, re-score it, re-record it. It's a massive job. But, if there's a demand we can always discuss it. #Quote by Eric Fellner
Action quotes by Russel H.S. Stolfi
#39. Hitler took the action of pitiless massacre as a last resort in the face of a perceived irreconcilable enemy."
--Hitler: Beyond Evil and Tyranny, p. 39 #Quote by Russel H.S. Stolfi
Action quotes by Megan McCafferty
#40. Well, I think it's possible to love someone and still be curious about someone else. And I think you should be able to act on that impulse without impunity. But in our society, where monogamy rules despite all the evidence that it doesn't work, a person is demonized for wanting to break from that traditional model of relationships. I think you can love someone, truly love someone, and still be drawn to someone
else. Enough to want to kiss that other person, just to see what it would be like. Or maybe to help confirm that what you've got is better than what else is out there. Because isn't the desire alone a form of betrayal? So what further harm does it do to put those thoughts into action? Ideally, you would be able just to go back to the person you love after you've kissed that other person and discovered it wasn't as
interesting as you thought it would be, which I would imagine would be the case most of the time. And in the event that itis unexpectedly amazing, isn't it better to have experienced that moment of bliss rather than imagine what it could have been like? #Quote by Megan McCafferty
Action quotes by Margaret Fuller
#41. The persons whom you have idolized can never, in the end, be ungrateful, and, probably, at the time of retreat they still do justice to your heart. But, so long as you must draw persons too near you, a temporary recoil is sure to follow. It is the character striving to defend itself from a heating and suffocating action upon it. #Quote by Margaret Fuller
Action quotes by Ann Voskamp
#42. Worry is the facade of taking action when prayer really is. #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Action quotes by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
#43. Unless an action is rightly thought out and its steps rightly planned, every stage of its performance will probably remain vague and therefore unsatisfactory for the doer and all those concerned. #Quote by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Action quotes by T. S. Eliot
#44. One starts an action simply because one must do something. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Action quotes by John Clare
#45. The best way to avoid a bad action is by doing a good one, for there is no difficulty in the world like that of trying to do nothing. #Quote by John Clare
Action quotes by L. Frank Baum
#46. Flowers are beautiful, for instance, but we are not inclined to marry them. Duty, on the contrary, is a bugle call to action, whether you are inclined to act, or not. In this case, I obey the bugle call of duty. #Quote by L. Frank Baum
Action quotes by Maisey Yates
#47. Yeah." He touched
Kelsey's arm and felt a shock, like static electricity. But this went deeper, beneath his skin. "I'm
going to go see what Cade needs. See you later?"
She licked her lips, the action sending a different kind of electricity down south. What a time for his
libido to make a reappearance. "Yeah. See you later #Quote by Maisey Yates
Action quotes by Robert Galbraith
#48. Keeping busy was the only answer: action had always been his drug of choice. #Quote by Robert Galbraith
Action quotes by Azar Nafisi
#49. Switzerland had somehow become a bywordfor Western laxity: any program or action that was deemed un- Islamic was reproached with a mocking reminder that Iran was by no means Switzerland. #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Action quotes by David Chiles
#50. The internet makes every online action memorable. Practice proper Netiquette for good memories. NetworkEtiquette.net #Quote by David Chiles
Action quotes by Nanavira Thera
#51. A man may take his own life for many reasons, and it is impossible to make a general statement; but whenever suicide is a gesture - done, that is, to impress or influence or embarrass others - it is always, so it seems to me, a sign of immaturity and muddled thinking. However much we may admire the fortitude of this Vietnamese monk, the wisdom of his action remains very much in doubt. I do not know the details of the provocation offered by the Catholic Head of State, but the monk appears to have killed himself 'fighting for the cause of Buddhism'. Certainly this action is infinitely more honourable than the setting fire to churches and the crowning of statues that seem to be the favoured methods of giving battle in this country; but it does not follow that it is any the less misguided. #Quote by Nanavira Thera
Action quotes by Poul Anderson
#52. In the intricate and mutable space-time geometry at the black hole, in-falling matter and energy interacted with the virtualities of the vacuum in ways unknown to the flatter cosmos beyond it. Quasi-stable quantum states appeared, linked according to Schrodinger's wave functions and their own entanglement, more and more of them, intricacy compounding until it amounted to a set of codes. The uncertainty principle wrought mutations; variants perished or flourished; forms competed, cooperated, merged, divided, interacted; the patterns multiplied and diversified; at last, along one fork on a branch of the life tree, thought budded.
That life was not organic, animal and vegetable and lesser kingdoms, growing, breathing, drinking, eating, breeding, hunting, hiding; it kindled no fires and wielded no tools; from the beginning, it was a kind of oneness. An original unity differentiated itself into countless avatars, like waves on a sea. They arose and lived individually, coalesced when they chose by twos or threes or multitudes, reemerged as other than they had been, gave themselves and their experiences back to the underlying whole. Evolution, history, lives eerily resembled memes in organic minds.
Yet quantum life was not a series of shifting abstractions. Like the organic, it was in and of its environment. It acted to alter its quantum states and those around it: action that manifested itself as electronic, photonic, and nuclear events. Its domain was no more shadowy to #Quote by Poul Anderson
Action quotes by Pandurang Shastri Athavale
#53. Action not backed by knowledge and knowledge not translatable into action, both can not stand the test of time. #Quote by Pandurang Shastri Athavale
Action quotes by William Ernest Hocking
#54. Wherever moral ambition exists, there right exists. And moral ambition itself must be presumed present in subconsciousness, even when the conscious self seems to reject it, so long as society has resources for bringing it into action; in much the same way that the life-saver presumes life to exist in the drowned man until he has exhausted his resources for recovering respiration. #Quote by William Ernest Hocking
Action quotes by Bryant McGill
#55. The master action to move forward, is a form of inaction; being still and quiet. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Action quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#56. To praise great actions with sincerity may be said to be taking part in them. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Action quotes by Kai Leakes
#57. Oooo wee! You see that chump go flying? Look'eah, nothing like charred demon to make a brotha feel right. - Calvin Freeman (Sineaters‬:Devotion Book One) #Quote by Kai Leakes
Action quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#58. The axioms of physics translate the laws of ethics. Thus, "the whole is greater than its part;" "reaction is equal to action;" "the smallest weight may be made to lift the greatest, the difference of weight being compensated by time;" and many the like propositions, which have an ethical as well as physical sense. These propositions have a much more extensive and universal sense when applied to human life, than when confined to technical use. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Action quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#59. The size of the tree you cut determines the weight with which you have to throw the axe. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Action quotes by Action Bronson
#60. I don't ever have the pressure of making a hit, because I've never had a hit song, per se. The closest thing to a hit song was 'Shiraz,' and it's not your prototypical hit song, with a catchy hook and all this other stuff. #Quote by Action Bronson
Action quotes by Erasmus Darwin
#61. Some philosophers have been of opinion that our immortal part acquires during this life certain habits of action or of sentiment, which become forever indissoluble, continuing after death in a future state of existence ... I would apply this ingenious idea to the generation, or production of the embryon, or new animal, which partakes so much of the form and propensities of the parent. #Quote by Erasmus Darwin
Action quotes by Sue Barker
#62. And later we'll have action from the men's cockles pairs. #Quote by Sue Barker
Action quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#63. How can we speak of the action of the mind under any divisions, as of its knowledge, of its ethics, of its works, and so forth, since it melts will into perception, knowledge into act? Each becomes the other. Itself alone is. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Action quotes by Ralph Marston
#64. There are very real obstacles and challenges to any course of action. And there's no need to add to them, by making up obstacles of your own. Unchain yourself from the bondage of your own thinking. #Quote by Ralph Marston
Action quotes by Gordon Brown
#65. I have just accepted the invitation of Her Majesty The Queen to form a Government. This will be a new Government with new priorities and I have been privileged to have been granted the great opportunity to serve my country and at all times I will be strong in purpose, steadfast in will, resolute in action in the service of what matters to the British people, meeting the concerns and aspirations of our whole country. #Quote by Gordon Brown
Action quotes by W. Edwards Deming
#66. Knowledge is theory. We should be thankful if action of management is based on theory. Knowledge has temporal spread. Information is not knowledge. The world is drowning in information but is slow in acquisition of knowledge. There is no substitute for knowledge. #Quote by W. Edwards Deming
Action quotes by Aruna Roy
#67. Through transparency we expose corruption, but then there is no action taken against the corrupt. #Quote by Aruna Roy
Action quotes by Robert Hughes
#68. One gets tired of the role critics are supposed to have in this culture: It's like being the piano player in a whorehouse; you don't have any control over the action going on upstairs. #Quote by Robert Hughes
Action quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#69. I observed mildness of temper, and unchangeable resolution in the things that he had determined after due deliberation; and no vainglory in those things that men call honors; and a love of labor and perseverance; and a readiness to listen to those who had anything to propose for the common weal; and undeviating firmness in giving to every man according to his deserts; and a knowledge derived from experience of the occasions for vigorous action and for remission. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Action quotes by Joan Didion
#70. We were that generation called silent, but we were silent neither, as some thought, because we shared the period's official optimism nor, as others thought, because we feared its official repression. We were silent because the exhilaration of social action seemed to many of us just one more way of escaping the personal, of masking for a while that dread of the meaningless which was man's fate. #Quote by Joan Didion
Action quotes by Louie Giglio
#71. Worship is our response to what we value most. As a result, worship fuels our actions, becoming the driving force of all we do. #Quote by Louie Giglio
Action quotes by Stanley Milgram
#72. But the culture has failed, almost entirely, in inculcating internal controls on actions that have their origin in authority. For this reason, the latter constitutes a far greater danger to human survival. #Quote by Stanley Milgram
Action quotes by Earl Sweatshirt
#73. The only thing that can combat fear is action. And there's two actions. There's fight and flight. #Quote by Earl Sweatshirt
Action quotes by Gina Carano
#74. I didn't really watch action films growing up! I grew up on stuff like 'Anne of Green Gables' - that was more when I was in elementary school. It was all I ever watched. #Quote by Gina Carano
Action quotes by Karl Barth
#75. Christian worship is the most momentous, most urgent, most glorious action that can take place in human life. #Quote by Karl Barth
Action quotes by Barry Lyga
#76. I usually tug my helmet's brim once, then push it back up into position, but I'm not wearing a helmet. I'm embarrassed to find myself miming the action through sheer muscle memory. #Quote by Barry Lyga
Action quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#77. But our democratic institutions are not automated. They must be inhabited by citizens and citizen leaders who know how to hold conflict inwardly in a manner that converts it into creativity, allowing it to pull them open to new ideas, new courses of action, and each other. That kind of tension-holding is the work of the well-tempered heart: if democracy is to thrive as that restored prairie is thriving, our hearts and our institutions must work in concert. #Quote by Parker J. Palmer
Action quotes by Hugh Ferriss
#78. The character of the architectural forms and spaces which all people habitually encounter are powerful agencies in determining the nature of their thoughts, their emotions and their actions, however unconscious of this they may be. #Quote by Hugh Ferriss
Action quotes by Unarine Ramaru
#79. The moment you in a relationship, know that every action you take, carries your partner's dignity along with yours. #Quote by Unarine Ramaru
Action quotes by David Deutsch
#80. If two programs respond in the same way to every possible action by the user, then they render the same environment; if they would respond perceptibly differently to even one possible action, they render different environments. #Quote by David Deutsch
Action quotes by Steve Martin
#81. I find animated movies very touching. They reach an audience that's hard to get with a live-action film. #Quote by Steve Martin
Action quotes by Jess Walter
#82. And when our lives do begin? I mean, the exacting part, the action? It's all so fast. #Quote by Jess Walter
Action quotes by J.I. Packer
#83. To summarize, then, it appears that Christian holiness is a number of things together. It has both outward and inward aspects. Holiness is a matter of both action and motivation, conduct and character, divine grace and human effort, obedience and creativity, submission and initiative, consecration to God and commitment to people, self-discipline and self-giving, righteousness and love. It is a matter of Spirit-led law-keeping, a walk, or course of life, in the Spirit that displays the fruit of the Spirit (Christlikeness of attitude and disposition). It is a matter of seeking to imitate Jesus' way of behaving, through depending on Jesus for deliverance from carnal self-absorption and for discernment of spiritual needs and possibilities. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Action quotes by Gerda Lerner
#84. The main thing history can teach us is that human actions have consequences, and that certain choices, once made, cannot be undone. #Quote by Gerda Lerner
Action quotes by Michelle Borth
#85. There's nothing - there's nothing - as action-packed as 'Hawaii Five-O.' #Quote by Michelle Borth
Action quotes by Neal Stephenson
#86. She heaved two or three times, as if sobbing, and suddenly sneezed -- not a polite 'atchoo' but a thermonuclear explosion so powerful that she staggered in place, nearly losing her balance, and some loitering Hispanic men on the other side of the boulevard looked up alertly, ready for action. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Action quotes by Noah Hawley
#87. In a traditional TV show or movie, your hero is always where the action is. But in real life, at the end of the movie 'Fargo,' when Bill Macy is arrested, Marge is nowhere to be found because it's a different jurisdiction, and she wouldn't be there. I took that to heart. #Quote by Noah Hawley
Action quotes by Yehuda Berg
#88. It's enough to make a small shift within and a small action in the world. Collectively these have a huge effect. #Quote by Yehuda Berg
Action quotes by Stephen Hawking
#89. Economics is also an effective theory, based on the notion of free will plus the assumption that people evaluate their possible alternative courses of action and choose the best. That effective theory is only moderately successful in predicting behavior because, as we all know, decisions are often not rational or are based on a defective analysis of the consequences of the choice. This is why the world is in such a mess. #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Action quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#90. Your speech tells me what you are, but your deeds tell me who you are. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Action quotes by Joseph Heller
#91. Dear Mrs., Mr., Miss, or Mr. and Mrs. Daneeka: Words cannot express the deep personal grief I experienced when your husband, son, father, or brother was killed, wounded, or reported missing in action. #Quote by Joseph Heller
Action quotes by Jim Wallis
#92. At times I think the truest image of God today is a black inner-city grandmother in the United States or a mother of the disappeared in Argentina or the women who wake up early to make tortillas in refugee camps. They all weep for their children, and in their compassionate tears arises the political action that changes the world. The mothers show us that it is the experience of touching the pain of others that is the key to change. #Quote by Jim Wallis
Action quotes by Laozi
#93. Practice non-action. Work without doing. #Quote by Laozi
Action quotes by Horace
#94. He who has begun has half done. Dare to be wise; begin! #Quote by Horace
Action quotes by Matt Dillahunty
#95. If I have done wrong to another person, the correct course of action is to apologize and make amends to that person and not blow it all off and hope that some God is going to forgive me and make it all go away. That sort of mentality is what allows people to not treat others in a way that is good. #Quote by Matt Dillahunty
Action quotes by Archana Chaurasia Kapoor
#96. Don't wait for the perfect thought, or the perfect moment; because perfection only occurs after action. #Quote by Archana Chaurasia Kapoor
Action quotes by Johann Kaspar Lavater
#97. Action, looks, words, steps, form the alphabet by which you may spell character. #Quote by Johann Kaspar Lavater
Action quotes by James F. Simon
#98. The future chief justice of the United States told the delegates that an independent federal judiciary was a necessary bulwark against an overreaching Congress. If Congress were to exceed its powers, said Marshall, it would be the duty of the judiciary to declare the action void. Marshall #Quote by James F. Simon
Action quotes by Virginia Woolf
#99. But Orlando was a woman - Lord Palmerston had just proved it. And when we are writing the life of a woman, we may, it is agreed, waive our demand for action, and substitute love instead. Love, the poet has said, is woman's whole existence. And if we look for a moment at Orlando writing at her table, we must admit that never was there a woman more fitted for that calling. Surely, since she is a woman, and a beautiful woman, and a woman in the prime of life, she will soon give over this pretence of writing and thinking and begin at least to think of a gamekeeper (and as long as she thinks of a man, nobody objects to a woman thinking). And then she will write him a little note (and as long as she writes little notes nobody objects to a woman writing either) and make an assignation for Sunday dusk and Sunday dusk will come; and the gamekeeper will whistle under the window - all of which is, of course, the very stuff of life and the only possible subject for fiction. Surely Orlando must have done one of these things? Alas, - a thousand times, alas, Orlando did none of them. Must it then be admitted that Orlando was one of those monsters of iniquity who do not love? She was kind to dogs, faithful to friends, generosity itself to a dozen starving poets, had a passion for poetry. But love - as the male novelists define it - and who, after all, speak with greater authority? - has nothing whatever to do with kindness, fidelity, generosity, or poetry. Love is slipping off one' #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Action quotes by Bryan Kest
#100. There are certain yoga laws and principles that are, shall we say, less tangible than others. For example, the law of karma. Science has proven what goes up must come down, but that's about as far as it's gone. To believe that for every action, word, and thought, there is an equal consequence takes something more intuitive, more personal; it's more metaphysical. #Quote by Bryan Kest
Action quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#101. Intellectual tasting of life will not supersede muscular activity. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Action quotes by Bill McKibben
#102. A spiritual voice is urgently needed to underline the fact that global warming is already causing human anguish and mortality in our nation and abroad, and much more will occur in the future without rapid action. #Quote by Bill McKibben
Action quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#103. Any action that arises out of stress is of low quality, and it contributes to human suffering. You are making yourself and others suffer. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Action quotes by Stephen R. Covey
#104. We are free to choose our actions, ... but we are not free to choose the consequences of these actions. #Quote by Stephen R. Covey
Action quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#105. People exercise the freedom to present themselves from a vast array of precepts. The modern human mind can engage in reflective thought and selectively determine how to organize the elements of perception. We can consciously elect to depart from stereotypical behavior and transcend the heretofore-established biological behavioral preferences. People can elect to hold prejudices or not, can make rational or irrational decisions to engage in war or not, and can take deliberate steps to arrest destruction of the ecosystem or not. Holding ourselves in check by placing a brake upon the human propensity to strike out in instinctual behavior is a distinct human quality. Restraint from instant gratification of strong impulses represents a unique human behavior trait. By intentionally refraining from committing an instinctual action, humankind asserts its sovereignty from its biological constitution. Unbound from the limitations of its biological nature, a person can employ the mind to devise alternative behavioral choices and the results of numerous behavioral choices culminate to provide a person with a sophisticated definition of the self. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Action quotes by Oren Peli
#106. I feel like when you do things with such a small budget, it actually makes you be more creative ... and allows you to concentrate more on the story and the characters. I think that there is something about dirty, gritty and raw filmmaking that makes it feel a little more natural and makes it easier to connect with the action. #Quote by Oren Peli
Action quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#107. Doubt of any kind cannot be resolved except by action. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Action quotes by Jack Canfield
#108. It's surprising how many people get bogged down in analysing, planning, and organizing when what they really need to do is take action. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Action quotes by Reese Witherspoon
#109. Doing begets more doing. It sounds simple, but I'm a firm believer that action can solve so many worries, and just powering through, no matter what, can give you the confidence you need when you feel like you've got nothing to offer. #Quote by Reese Witherspoon
Action quotes by John Kramer
#110. Every war, every plague is God's judgment. But every man who rises up to stop the wars and the plagues is God's instrument. Human action is God's will, not blind indifference in the face of suffering. #Quote by John Kramer
Action quotes by Geoff Thompson
#111. Words without action are like wheels without traction. It is how you live that counts. #Quote by Geoff Thompson
Action quotes by John Gardner
#112. The writer's characters must stand before us with a wonderful clarity, such continuous clarity that nothing they do strikes us as improbable behavior for just that character, even when the character's action is, as sometimes happens, something that came as a surprise to the writer himself. We must understand, and the writer before us must understand, more than we know about the character; otherwise neither the writer nor the reader after him could feel confident of the character's behavior when the character acts freely. #Quote by John Gardner
Action quotes by Phil Hine
#113. Henceforth, whilst there are a great many theories and models proposed as to how, or why, magic works (based on subtle energies, animal magnetism, psychological concepts, quantum theory, mathematics or the so-called anthropomorphic principle) it is not a case that one of them is more 'true' than others, but a case of which theory or model you choose to believe in, or which theory you find most attractive. Indeed, from a Chaos Magic perspective, you can selectively believe that a particular theory or model of magical action is true only for the duration of a particular ritual or phase of work. #Quote by Phil Hine
Action quotes by Vaclav Havel
#114. Genuine politics
even politics worthy of the name
the only politics I am willing to devote myself to
is simply a matter of serving those around us: serving the community and serving those who will come after us. Its deepest roots are moral because it is a responsibility expressed through action, to and for the whole. #Quote by Vaclav Havel
Action quotes by Constance Baker Motley
#115. Affirmitive action is extremely complex because it appears in many different forms. #Quote by Constance Baker Motley
Action quotes by James F. Amos
#116. Memorial bracelets memorializing prisoners of war, missing in action, killed in action, and those who died of wounds or injuries sustained in a combat theater are authorized. #Quote by James F. Amos
Action quotes by Karl Marx
#117. National differences and antagonisms between peoples are daily more and more vanishing, owing to the development of the bourgeoisie, to freedom of commerce, to the world-market, to uniformity in the mode of production and in the conditions of life corresponding thereto.
The supremacy of the proletariat will cause them to vanish still faster. United action, of the leading civilized countries at least, is one of the first conditions for the emancipation of the proletariat.
In proportion as the exploitation of one individual by another is put an end to, the exploitation of one nation by another will also be put an end to. In proportion as the antagonism between classes within the nation vanishes, the hostility of one nation to another will come to an end. #Quote by Karl Marx
Action quotes by Adam Silver
#118. Let me be clear: Any new approach must ensure the integrity of the game. One of my most important responsibilities as commissioner of the NBA is to protect the integrity of professional basketball and preserve public confidence in the league and our sport. I oppose any course of action that would compromise these objectives. But I believe that sports betting should be brought out of the underground and into the sunlight where it can be appropriately monitored and regulated #Quote by Adam Silver
Action quotes by Matthew Donnelly
#119. Inspired action is when you take action with no mind. Pure silence. #Quote by Matthew Donnelly
Action quotes by Morton Blackwell
#120. Actions have consequences. #Quote by Morton Blackwell
Action quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#121. Actions themselves form no bondage. Bondage is only the false belief,"I am the do-er." #Quote by Ramana Maharshi
Action quotes by Jonathan Stroud
#122. Wrong again. I'll tell you, shall I?" The djinni fixed him with its black-eyed stare. "You knocked yourself out, like the idiot you are. The golem was approaching, doubtless planning to take the Staff and crush your head like a melon. It was foiled - "
"By your prompt action?" Nathaniel said. "If so, I'm grateful, Bartimaeus."
"Me? Save you? Please - someone I know might be listening. No. My magic is canceled out by the golem's, remember? I sat back to watch the show. In fact ... it was the girl and her friend. They saved you. Wait - don't mock! I do not lie. The boy distracted it while the girl climbed on the golem's back, tore the manuscript from its mouth, and threw it to the ground. Even as she did so, the golem seized her and the boy - incinerated them in seconds. Then its life force ebbed and it finally froze, inches from your sorry neck. #Quote by Jonathan Stroud
Action quotes by Thomas Brooks
#123. If it is not strong upon your heart to practice what you read, to what end do you read? To increase your own condemnation? If your light and knowledge be not turned into practice, the more knowing a man you are, the more miserable a man you will be in the day of recompense; your light and knowledge will more torment you than all the devils in hell. Your knowledge will be that rod that will eternally lash you, and that scorpion that will forever bite you, and that worm that will everlastingly gnaw you; therefore read, and labor to know that you may do
or else you are undone forever. #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Action quotes by Julie Connor
#124. How can you use what most excites, angers, or upsets you to achieve what you want to be, do or experience? #Quote by Julie Connor
Action quotes by Orrin Woodward
#125. True leadership is the orchestration of truth into action to shine Light into darkness. #Quote by Orrin Woodward
Action quotes by Fred Hassan
#126. We are building a special capability at Schering-Plough to respond to these and other challenges with innovation, speed and flexibility. We aspire to continue being the company delivering the most positive change of any in our peer group, as we work to deliver our Turnaround and advance our six- to eight-year Action Agenda for transformational change. #Quote by Fred Hassan
Action quotes by Kenny Loggins
#127. The Spirit speaks directly to our hearts through music. That's why music has always had such power to move people into positive action. #Quote by Kenny Loggins
Action quotes by Kiera Cass
#128. I vote for a comedy," I said as we went down the stairs, Maxon leading the way. "I vote for action." "Well, you just said I was worth it, so I think I'm going to win this one. #Quote by Kiera Cass
Action quotes by Frances Wright
#129. Now here is a departure from the first principle of true ethics. Here we find ideas of moral wrong and moral right associated with something else than beneficial action. The consequent is, we lose sight of the real basis of morals, and substitute a false one. #Quote by Frances Wright
Action quotes by Laozi
#130. Tao invariably takes no action, and yet there is nothing left undone. #Quote by Laozi
Action quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#131. They could do anything. That, however, was part of what made it difficult to bring [it] to a close. Infinite possibility was going to collapse, in the act of choosing, to the single world line of history. The future becoming the past: there was something disappointing in this passage through the loom, this so-sudden diminution from infinity to one, the collapse from potentiality to reality which was the action of time itself. The potential was so delicious - the way they could have, potentially, all the best parts of all...time, combined magically into some superb, as-yet-unseen synthesis - or throw all that aside, and finally strike a new path to the heart of just government. . . .To go from that to the mundane problematic...was an inevitable letdown, and instinctively people put it off. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Action quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#132. Mitchell had answered that, as far as he understood them, mystical experiences were significant only to the extent that they changed a person's conception of reality, and if that changed conception led to a change in behavior and action, a loss of ego. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Action quotes by Vernon Howard
#133. Many of us knock on the door but remain outside, because knocking and entering are entirely different actions. Knocking is necessary, consisting of reading books, attending meetings, asking questions. But entrance requires much bolder action. It requires one to enter into himself, to uncover hidden motives, to see contradictions, and to realize his actual power for self-change. #Quote by Vernon Howard
Action quotes by Action Bronson
#134. I'm an honorable human being. I know what to do and what not to do, and if I'm wrong, I always apologize. I'm a big enough man to do that. #Quote by Action Bronson
Action quotes by Jennifer Arnett
#135. Given that media has become fast-paced, readers now want books that show the action and don't just tell you what is happening. Modern readers don't want three pages of descriptions of a farmhouse. They want to hear the door's creak quiet the chirping of crickets out in the cornfield, they want to feel the cool air drift through the house, then they want to see the shadow of a man, gun drawn, standing over the bed of his disloyal lover. #Quote by Jennifer Arnett
Action quotes by Peace Pilgrim
#136. All right prayer has good effect, but if you give your whole life to the prayer you multiply its power ... No one really knows the full power of prayer. Of course, there is a relationship between prayer and action. Receptive prayer result in an inner receiving, which motivates to right action. #Quote by Peace Pilgrim
Action quotes by Scott S. Philips
#137. Relationships might come and go, but Mego STAR TREK action figures are forever. #Quote by Scott S. Philips
Action quotes by David Titley
#138. I like to think of climate action as a three-legged stool. #Quote by David Titley
Action quotes by Steve Maraboli
#139. Do not question your ability or worthiness. God is a universe of purpose-driven balance. If you have been called to action, it is because you have it within you to rise to the challenge of your calling. Now, RISE to it! #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Action quotes by Allen W. Wood
#140. It is striking that motivation plays virtually no role in Hegel's theory of action, because Hegel's theory of action in effect replaces motives with intentions or (internal) reasons. Instead of asking what psychic factors motivated me, Hegel asks for an explanation of my action in terms of the act-descriptions that supply the reasons I had for doing what I did. #Quote by Allen W. Wood
Action quotes by Chris Congoo
#141. Truth. Truth is when your mind thinks of words which you are going to speak and action out. If one thinks the truth, then one must speaks the truth and then one must act the truth for it to be the truthful. #Quote by Chris Congoo
Action quotes by Doreen Virtue
#142. Take a moment to gather your thoughts about your situation and ask, "What would Love do?" Then channel that energy in your words and actions. #Quote by Doreen Virtue
Action quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#143. Eternal recurrence means that every time you choose an action you must be willing to choose it for all eternity. And it is the same for every action not made, every stillborn thought, every choice avoided. And all unlived life will remain bulging inside you, unlived through all eternity. And the unheeded voice of your conscience will cry out to you forever. #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Action quotes by Terry Brooks
#144. There is much to admire in Peter Brett's writing, and his concept is brilliant. There's action and suspense all the way. #Quote by Terry Brooks
Action quotes by Aleister Crowley
#145. I am only sipping the second glass of that "fascinating, but subtle poison, whose ravages eat men's heart and brain" that I have ever tasted in my life; and as I am not an American anxious for quick action, I am not surprised and disappointed that I do not drop dead upon the spot. But I can taste souls without the aid of absinthe; and besides, this is magic of absinthe! The spirit of the house has entered into it; it is an elixir, the masterpiece of an old alchemist, no common wine. And so, as I talk with the patron concerning the vanity of things, I perceive the secret of the heart of God himself; this, that everything, even the vilest thing, is so unutterably lovely that it is worthy of the devotion of a God for all eternity. What other excuse could He give man for making him? In substance, that is my answer to King Solomon. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Action quotes by Ayn Rand
#146. There, he thought, was the final abortion of the creed of collective interdependence, the creed of non-identity, non-property, non-fact: the belief that the moral stature of one is at the mercy of the action of another. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Action quotes by Steve Maraboli
#147. You've been given the innate power to shape your life ... but you cannot just speak change, you have to LIVE change. Intent paired with action builds the bridge to success. You can't just want it; you have to do it, live it ... BE it! Success isn't something you have, it's something you DO! #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Action quotes by Peter Levi
#148. Sings. Hope in every sphere of life is a privilege that attaches to action. No action, no hope. #Quote by Peter Levi
Action quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#149. They were all three amazingly beautiful; they were also amazingly good secretaries. In Harshaw's opinion the principle of least action required that utility and beauty be combined. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Action quotes by Jim Rohn
#150. Choose action, not rest. Choose the good in life in all things, and choose the opportunity as well as the chance to work when springtime smiles on your face. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Action quotes by Nashoda Rose
#151. Maybe. But I was always fond of killing assholes. And you're at the top of the list. #Quote by Nashoda Rose
Action quotes by Benjamin Hooks
#152. A good history covers not only what was done, but the thought that went into the action. You can read the history of a country through its actions. #Quote by Benjamin Hooks
Action quotes by Angela Panayotopulos
#153. Hell and Heaven are states of being, not destinations. They are worlds we carry within. Don't expect to find angels and demons -- not in the way you've envisioned them. As God is called Allah, so Man is called Monster. Don't be fooled by titles. Call a skunk a rose and it will continue to reek.

Hydras do not crawl out from between the weatherworn pages of fairytale anthologies. On the contrary, they ride the subway and order food at the local drive-through and enjoy stolen kisses at the cinema. Only one head is visible to the naked eye. They tend to avoid reflective surfaces.

Each head is a sin: each belch of fire is a sin put to action. But you should know that the shadows differ. There may be seven heads, or three, or one. Those with one head are particularly tricky. Who's to say if they're human or hydra? You'd have to kiss them, bite them. You would know them by their mouth. The name of their sin is tattooed on the inside of their bottom lip, so they can lick and taste its sweetness. #Quote by Angela Panayotopulos
Action quotes by Hjalmar Soderberg
#154. We want everything, we want to be everything. We want to experience all the joys of good fortune and the full depths of suffering. We want the excitement of action and the calm of observation. We want the silence of the desert as well as the noise of the forum. Simultaneously we want to be the hermit´s thought and the voice of the people; we want to be both melody and harmony. Simultaneously! How could this be possible? #Quote by Hjalmar Soderberg
Action quotes by Lucas Till
#155. I think there's certain things that I know in my head that I enjoy: action movies. #Quote by Lucas Till
Action quotes by Rosa Parks
#156. When people made up their minds that they wanted to be free and took action, then there was a change. #Quote by Rosa Parks
Action quotes by Robert Ringer
#157. One of the biggest mistakes that most people make is clinging to the excuse that the time isn't quite right to take action. Well, let me tell you something: In my experience, conditions are never right at the right time. The timing is always wrong. So if you're waiting for everything to be perfect before taking action, you have a foolproof excuse for never taking action. #Quote by Robert Ringer
Action quotes by Sigmund Freud
#158. Words have a magical power. They can bring either the greatest happiness or deepest despair; they can transfer knowledge from teacher to student; words enable the orator to sway his audience and dictate its decisions. Words are capable of arousing the strongest emotions and prompting all men's actions. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Action quotes by Stephen Colbert
#159. A native American group has filed a class-action lawsuit against the government for mismanagement of oil, gas, grazing, timber and other royalties since 1887. They're seeking $100 billion. Here's the good news: The government has responded what I believe is an appropriate counteroffer: A two-cent Navajo stamp. #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Action quotes by David J. Schwartz
#161. Success shuns the man who lacks ideas. #Quote by David J. Schwartz
Action quotes by Gary Zukav
#162. When the deepest part of you becomes engaged in what you are doing, when your activities and actions become gratifying and purposeful, when what you do serves both yourself and others, when you do not tire within but seek the sweet satisfaction of your life and your work, you are doing what you were meant to be doing. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Action quotes by Lord Robertson
#163. Well, if the NATO countries don't make more of their troops usable and don't get the equipment to get them fast where the action is, then the organisation will suffer and will increasingly become irrelevant. #Quote by Lord Robertson
Action quotes by Steven Redhead
#164. Whatever is unacceptable continues to exist because of the lack of action on your part. #Quote by Steven Redhead
Action quotes by John Steinbeck
#165. It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure to the world. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Action quotes by Leslie Kaminoff
#166. The conventional terms used to describe movement at the joints, joint actions, describe fairly simple movements that are flat and two-dimensional and happen in a single plane. No single joint action takes into account the volume of the movement possibilities at every joint. #Quote by Leslie Kaminoff
Action quotes by Kelly J. Cogswell
#167. We Lesbian Avengers have built this shrine. It stands for our fear. It stands for our grief. It stands for our rage. And it enshrines our intention to live fully and completely as who we are, wherever we are. We take the fire of action into our hearts. And we take it into our bodies. And we stand, here and now, to make it known that we are here, and here we will stay. Our fear does not consume us. Their fire will not consume us. We take that fire, and we make it our own. #Quote by Kelly J. Cogswell
Action quotes by Eliyahu M. Goldratt
#168. The minute you supply a person with the answers, by that very action you block them, once and for all, from the opportunity of inventing those same answers for themselves. If you want to go on an ego trip, to show how smart you are, give the answers. But if what you want is action to be taken, then you must refrain from giving the answers. #Quote by Eliyahu M. Goldratt
Action quotes by Anonymous
#169. Confidence," he told us, "is the stuff that turns thoughts into action. #Quote by Anonymous

#170. If any man should ask me what is the first, second, and third part of being a Christian, I must answer 'Action!' #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Action quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
#171. The message I am trying to get across is exactly this: Protecting the environment does not require us to be against large SUVs or trucks. Instead we should develop technology to cut down greenhouse gas emissions because that is where the action is - it's not about what the size of the car is. #Quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger
Action quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#172. I have devoted 30 years of research to how creative people live and work, to make more understandable the mysterious process by which they come up with new ideas and new things. If I had to express in one word what makes their personalities different from others, it's complexity. They show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated. They contain contradictory extremes; instead of being an individual, each of them is a multitude. #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Action quotes by Lara Adrian
#173. Angels and demons, vampires and lycans, all set against an inventive, intriguing story world that hooked me from the first page. Balancing action and romance, humor and hot sensuality, Sylvia Day's storytelling dazzles. I can't wait to read more about this league of sexy, dangerous guardian angels and the fascinating world they inhabit. A Touch of Crimson is a paranormal romance lover's feast! #Quote by Lara Adrian
Action quotes by Bill Moyers
#174. In those days [1955], affirmative action was for whites only. I might still be working for the grocery store in the small Texas town where I grew up were it not for affirmative action for Southern white boys. #Quote by Bill Moyers
Action quotes by Franz Kafka
#175. Two possibilities: making oneself infinitely small or being so. The second is perfection, that is to say, inactivity, the first is beginning, that is to say, action. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Action quotes by Francis Quarles
#176. Wouldst thou know the lawfulness of the action which thou desirest to undertake, let thy devotion recommend it to Divine blessing: if it be lawful, thou shalt perceive thy heart encouraged by thy prayer; if unlawful, thou shalt find thy prayer discouraged by thy heart. That action is not warrantable which either blushes to beg a blessing, or, having succeeded, dares not present a thanksgiving. #Quote by Francis Quarles
Action quotes by Aristotle.
#177. It is well said, then, that it is by doing just acts that the just man is produced, and by doing temperate acts the temperate man; without doing these no one would have even a prospect of becoming good. #Quote by Aristotle.
Action quotes by Roger Ebert
#178. We can now have action movies with two stars where one might be African American and one might be Asian American. One of them doesn't have to be white, and the other one doesn't have to be the ethnic sidekick. We're way over that. And I think it's happening in society, too. #Quote by Roger Ebert
Action quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#179. Because we are rooted in a generous Christian heritage, we are eager to collaborate with people of other faiths, and those seeking the common good. Our networks of dialogue and action thus extend beyond Christian communities to persons of all faiths, as well as to communities that are not themselves faith-based. We welcome allies and allegiances wherever we find common cause ... #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Action quotes by Georges Bernanos
#180. A thought which does not result in an action is nothing much, and an action which does not proceed from a thought is nothing at all. #Quote by Georges Bernanos
Action quotes by Criss Jami
#181. So, how close are love and genius, really? We know that they are both mentioned far more than lived. #Quote by Criss Jami
Action quotes by Charles Darwin
#182. But Natural Selection, as we shall hereafter see, is a power incessantly ready for action, and is immeasurably superior to man's feeble efforts, as the works of Nature are to those of Art. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Action quotes by Paul Bettany
#183. You'll still work with some directors where that doesn't happen, and sometimes it's out of necessity because you're in a really complicated, choreographed fight scene and the whole thing is being prevised in a computer, so it's been decided months before, but I think that's sneaking into the way action scenes are shot. #Quote by Paul Bettany
Action quotes by R.D. Laing
#184. To mystify, in the active sense, is to befuddle, cloud, obscure, mask whatever is going on, whether this be experience, action, or process, or whatever is "the issue." It induces confusion in the sense that there is failure to see what is "really" being experienced, or being done, or going on, and failure to distinguish or discriminate the actual issues. This entails the substitution of false for true constructions of what is being experienced, being done (praxis), or going on (process), and the substitution of false issues for the actual issues. #Quote by R.D. Laing
Action quotes by Julia Mancuso
#185. I work out a lot, but I like to do action sports. A lot of surfing, mountain-biking. #Quote by Julia Mancuso
Action quotes by Jack Kornfield
#186. If we are engaged in actions that cause pain and conflict to ourselves and others, it is impossible for the mind to become settled, collected, and focused in meditation; it is impossible for the heart to open. #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Action quotes by Donnie Yen
#187. I think action movies bring more excitement than tears, but I always want to take it to another level. I mean, I think if one appreciates anything in life to a certain degree, it could possibly bring tears to your eyes. #Quote by Donnie Yen
Action quotes by Katie Kacvinsky
#188. So many people are full of talk, Maddie. But nothing happens unless someone steps up and takes action. #Quote by Katie Kacvinsky
Action quotes by Rumi
#189. The word grows mad on the ferment
Of angry actions, the authorities can only inflict
Visible punishments. Now regard with the unpracticed
Inner eye the unseen presence of Judgement then
You will understand the nature of your soul's torment #Quote by Rumi
Action quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#190. These three things give meaning to life: dreams and aspirations which inspires confidence and direct actions and steps in the day, a person's ability to not just look but see distinctively, and a real and robust action with tenacity which make dreams realities. So many people sleep and they only sleep! So many people wake up and they don't see anything in the day from dawn to dusk! When you close your eyes, dream! When you open your eyes, see! When you take a step, take a definite action with the right attitude! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Action quotes by Gilbert Melendez
#191. U.S. wrestling is more of a scrambling style where guys take a lot of risks. You could watch a match in the states and see a score of 18-12. There is going to be a lot of action, transitions and guys going back and forth and trading points. #Quote by Gilbert Melendez
Action quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#192. You know, all this is speculating. I don't think any of us really know what's going on. I think there's always that pendulum action in American politics, and I expect Nixon to run into trouble in the next few years. I think there's going to be disillusionment over his war settlement. I think the economic problems are not going to get better and the problems in the great cities are going to worsen, and it may be that by '76 somebody can come along and win on a kind of platform that I was running on in '72. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Action quotes by Saint Basil
#193. When you have become God's in the measure he desires, then he himself will bestow you upon others; unless, to your greater glory, he chooses to keep you all to himself. #Quote by Saint Basil
Action quotes by Jesse Lauriston Livermore
#194. The desire for constant action irrespective of underlying conditions is responsible for many losses on Wall Street even among the professionals, who feel that they must take home some money every day, as though they were working for regular wages. #Quote by Jesse Lauriston Livermore
Action quotes by Henry Mosquera
#195. I think all artists struggle to represent the geometry
of life in their own way, just like writers deal with
archetypes. There are only so many stories that you can
tell, but an infinite number of storytellers. #Quote by Henry Mosquera
Action quotes by Publilius Syrus
#196. It is of no profit to have learned well, if you neglect to do well. #Quote by Publilius Syrus
Action quotes by Adrian Tchaikovsky
#197. I was young at Myna, that first time. When had the change come? He had retreated to here, to Collegium, to spin his awkward webs of intrigue and to lecture at the College. Then, years on, the call had come for action. He had gone to that chest in which he stored his youth and found that, like some armour long unworn, it had rusted away.
He tried to tell himself that this was not like the grumbling of any other man who finds the prime of his life behind him. I need my youth and strength now, as never before. A shame that one could no husband time until one needed it. All his thoughts rang hollow. He was past his best and that was the thorn that would not be plucked from his side. He was no different from any tradesman or scholar who, during a life of indolence, pauses partway up the stairs to think, This was not so hard, yesterday. #Quote by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Action quotes by Neal Cassady
#198. Like here it was that I entered that stage when a child overcomes naivite enough to realize an adult's emotional reaction as somethimes freakish for its inconsistencies, so can, on his own reasoning canvas, paint those early pale colors of judgement, resulting from initial moments of ability to critically examine life's perplexities, in tentative little brain-engine stirrings, before they faded to quickly join that train of remembered experience carrying signals indicating existence which itself far outweighs traction effort by thinking's soon slipping drivers to effectively resist any slack-action advantage, for starting so necessitates continual cuts on the hauler - performed as if governed lifelong by the tagwork of a student-green foreman who, crushed under on rushing time always building against his excessive load of emotional contents, is forever a lost ball in the high weeds of personal developments - until, with ever changing emphasis through a whole series of grades of consciousness (leading up from root-beginnings of obscure childish inconscious soul within a world), early lack - for what child sustains logic? - reaches a point of late fossilization, resultant of repeated wrong moves in endless switching of dark significances crammed inside the cranium, where, through such hindering habits, there no longer is the flexibility for thought transfer and unloading of dead freight that a standard gauge would afford and thus, as Faustian Destiny dictates, is an inept mink, #Quote by Neal Cassady
Action quotes by Claire Shipman
#199. Think less. Take action. Be authentic. #Quote by Claire Shipman
Action quotes by H.J.A. Sire
#200. Was Archbishop Lefebvre justified in contemplating illicit consecrations? ... At the time I believed he was wrong. Twenty years after his death, I believe he was right. Without his action, the traditionalists would now be an ineffective handful of priests at the mercy of the Modernist Church. #Quote by H.J.A. Sire
