Olympism In Action quotes by Richard Rorty
#1. If the Left forms no such alliances, it will never have any effect on the laws of the United States. To form them will require the cultural Left to forget about Baudrillard's account of America as Disneyland--as a county of simulacra--and to start proposing changes in the laws of a real country, inhabited by real people who are enduring unnecessary suffering, much of which can be cured by governmental action. Nothing would do more to resurrect the American Left than agreement on a concrete political platform, a People's Charter, a list of specific reforms. The existence of such a list--endlessly reprinted and debated, equally familiar to professors and production workers, imprinted on the memory both of professional people and of those who clean the professionals' toilets--might revitalize leftist politics. #Quote by Richard Rorty
Olympism In Action quotes by Fidel Castro
#2. If we wish to express what we want the men of future generations to be, we must say: Let them be like Che! If we wish to say how we want our children to be educated, we must say without hesitation: We want them to be educated in Che's spirit! If we want the model of a man, who does not belong to our times but to the future, I say from the depths of my heart that such a model, without a single stain on his conduct, without a single stain on his action, is Che! #Quote by Fidel Castro
Olympism In Action quotes by Justus A. Platt
#3. Sir Arthur stopped at the bottom of the hill and awaited the charging rider. The horseman halted in front of Sir Arthur and mud flew in all directions.

"Who are you?" demanded Sir Arthur. He stared into the masked face and turbaned head of an assassin.

Rufus's heart stopped. A gasp escaped his frozen lips and his legs wobbled.

Sir Arthur asked again, "Who are you?"

The man dismounted and drew from his golden sash a long scimitar. He approached Sir Arthur. The knight lifted his sword and the duel began. #Quote by Justus A. Platt
Olympism In Action quotes by William Strauss
#4. One reason why the cycle of archetypes recurs is that each youth generation tries to correct or compensate for what it perceives as the excesses of the midlife generation in power. For example, Boomers (a Prophet generation, whose strength is individualism, culture and values) raised Millennial children (a Hero generation, whose strength is in collective civic action). Archetypes do not create archetypes like themselves, they create opposing archetypes. Your generation isn't like the generation that shaped you, but it has much in common with the generation that shaped the generation that shaped you. #Quote by William Strauss
Olympism In Action quotes by Pema Chodron
#5. Noticing how we try to avoid it is a way to get in touch with basic groundlessness. Refraining - not habitually acting out impulsively - has something to do with giving up entertainment mentality. Through refraining, we see that there's something between the arising of the craving - or the aggression or the loneliness or whatever it might be - and whatever action we take as a result. There's something there in us that we don't want to experience, and we never do experience, because we're so quick to act. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Olympism In Action quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#6. To be whole, nonfragmented in action, in life, in every kind of relationship, that is the very essence of sanity. Sanity means to be whole, healthy and holy. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Olympism In Action quotes by John Spence
#7. My definition of success: When your core values and self-concept are in harmony with your daily actions and behaviors. #Quote by John Spence
Olympism In Action quotes by David Murison
#8. ...the prose tradition had died two centuries before and the recreation of a full canon of all-purpose Scots was beyond even Scott's skill, nor did he attempt it, except, perhaps in the magnificent Wandering Willie's Tale. He took the only course open to him, of writing his narrative in English and using Scots only for those who, given their social class, would still be speaking it: daft Davie Gellatley in Waverley, the gypsies and Dandie Dinmont in Guy Mannering, the Headriggs in Old Mortality, Edie Ochiltree and the fisher-folk of Musselcrag in The Antiquary, Andrew Fairservice in Rob Roy, the Deanses in The Heart of Midlothian, Meg Dods in St. Ronan's Well, and so on.

The procedure gave reality to the Scots characters whose ways and ethos it was Scott's main purpose to portray, and the author in his best English, which lumbered along rather badly at times, did little more than lay out the setting for the action and act as impressario for the characters as they played their roles...

...Scott's felicity in conveying character and action through their Scots speech inspired his imitators for the next hundred years - Susan Ferrier, Hogg, Macdonald, Stevenson, Barrie, Crockett, Alexander, George Douglas, and John Buchan. The tradition of narrative in standard English and dialogue in various degrees of dialect has been the usual procedure since. #Quote by David Murison
Olympism In Action quotes by Ross Parsley
#9. Humility isn't as much a character trait as an action. We must clothe ourselves with it. We choose to wear it or we don't. If God has to humble us, it's too late - and that's going to be a bad day. We all have to demonstrate the humility of Christ in our actions. #Quote by Ross Parsley
Olympism In Action quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#10. If we don't counter the onslaught of the insidious triviality of transgression in our daily environment and if we gradually lose grip on the pervading taint of apathy and disrespect, we need irrevocably restructure our thinking and adjust the mechanism of our action. Taking everything for granted and accepting anything uncontested, might generate disjunction, arouse extreme heartbreak and, finally, turn our living into a scourge. ("Even if the world goes down, my mobile will save me" turn into ) #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Olympism In Action quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#11. Saying yes to God isn't about perfect performance, but rather perfect surrender to the Lord day by day. Your obedience becomes radical the minute this desire turns into real action. Radical obedience is hearing from God, feeling His nudges, participating in His activity, and experiencing His blessings in a way few people ever do. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst
Olympism In Action quotes by Carl Von Clausewitz
#12. ...in war, the advantages and disadvantages of a single action could only be determined by the final balance. #Quote by Carl Von Clausewitz
Olympism In Action quotes by Richard Finney
#13. She loves dogs. And in time, who knows, maybe she would even have ended up loving the type of dogs who eat other small dogs for lunch.
Leslie McNeill #Quote by Richard Finney
Olympism In Action quotes by Action Theory
#14. An intention for the future stands to the acting one engages in when one starts to execute it, or, equivalently, to the intention in action that it becomes at that point, as a caterpillar stands to the butterfly it becomes in metamorphosis. #Quote by Action Theory
Olympism In Action quotes by Mark Dacascos
#15. I try to stay away from stuff that's just action, action, action, action, action, and you kind of fast-forward through the dialogue scenes. I'm not interested in doing that. Give me a reason to fight, and I'll go there. But don't just make it, 'You touched my pen! Haaa-yah!' I've done that before. #Quote by Mark Dacascos
Olympism In Action quotes by Murray Rothbard
#16. I see no other conceivable strategy for the achievement of liberty than political action. Religious or philosophical conversion of each man and woman is simply not going to work; that strategy ignores the problem of power, the fact that millions of people have a vested interest in statism and are not likely to give it up ... Education in liberty is of course vital, but it is not enough; action must also be taken to roll back the State ... #Quote by Murray Rothbard
Olympism In Action quotes by Baruch Spinoza
#17. According as each has been educated, so he repents of or glories in his actions. #Quote by Baruch Spinoza
Olympism In Action quotes by Phil Ochs
#18. God isn't dead--he's just missing in action. #Quote by Phil Ochs
Olympism In Action quotes by Stanley Milgram
#19. 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
Olympism In Action quotes by Tulsi Gabbard
#20. It's easy to say, let's go in and get the bad guys. But you have a divided country of Sunnis and Shias. The United States goes and takes action there on behalf of the Iraqi government. You've got Iran coming in and saying we're going to stand with (Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri) al-Maliki, so now we're aligning ourselves with Iran, and if we do air strikes, becoming de facto air force for them. #Quote by Tulsi Gabbard
Olympism In Action quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#21. It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Olympism In Action quotes by Edmund Phelps
#22. I would like to see people dreaming of striking out on their own into some other country or their own, wherever they feel the action is, in the hope of an exciting and rewarding career. #Quote by Edmund Phelps
Olympism In Action quotes by Johannes P. Muller
#23. To speak, therefore, of an electric current in the nerves, is to use quite as symbolic an expression as if we compared the action of the nervous principle with light or magnetism. #Quote by Johannes P. Muller
Olympism In Action quotes by Anonymous
#24. Nonchoices are choices, too. And they are very telling choices at that. Each nonaction denotes a parallel action; each nonchoice, a parallel choice; each absence, a presence. Take the well-known default effect: more often than not, we stick to default options and don't expend the energy to change, even if another option is in fact better for us. We don't choose to contribute to a retirement fund - even if our company will match the contributions - unless the default is set up for contributing. We don't become organ donors unless we are by default considered donors. And the list goes on. It's simply easier to do nothing. But that doesn't mean we've actually not done anything. We have. We've chosen, in a #Quote by Anonymous
Olympism In Action quotes by Lev S. Vygotsky
#25. The specifically human capacity for language enables children to provide for auxiliary tools in the solution of difficult tasks, to overcome impulsive action, to plan a solution to a problem prior to its execution, and to master their own behavior. #Quote by Lev S. Vygotsky
Olympism In Action quotes by Aristotle.
#26. What the statesman is most anxious to produce is a certain moral character in his fellow citizens, namely a disposition to virtue and the performance of virtuous actions. #Quote by Aristotle.
Olympism In Action quotes by William Blake
#27. He who would do good to another must do it in Minute Particulars; General Good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite and flatterer: For Art and Science cannot exist but in minutely organized Particulars. #Quote by William Blake
Olympism In Action quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#28. I consider non-violence to be compassion in action. It doesn't mean weakness, cowering in fear, or simply doing nothing. It is to act without violence, motivated by compassion, recognising the rights of others. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Olympism In Action quotes by Tony Robbins
#29. You always succeed in producing a result. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Olympism In Action quotes by Paul W. S. Anderson
#30. There's something very terrifying about that and very primal about it. It's my belief that what horror does for people is that it provides that primal fear that, when we were wild hunter-gatherers, we had as part of our natural lives because maybe something was trying to hunt and gather you as well. We don't have that anymore in life and that's one of the things that horror films and action films provide for us. #Quote by Paul W. S. Anderson
Olympism In Action quotes by Ellen Hopkins
#31. The easiest definition is this: an addiction is something we can't stop doing. Among its symptoms are lethargy, a lack of ability to focus, a tremendous desire to maintain routine in our daily life, the inability to complete cycles of action, a lack of new experiences and emotional responses, and the persistent feeling that one day is the same as the next and the next. #Quote by Ellen Hopkins
Olympism In Action quotes by Brian Sutton-Smith
#32. Play is always a fantasy, but once you get into the frame, it is quite real, and everything you do is real. You put acres and acres of real movement and real action and real belief in it. #Quote by Brian Sutton-Smith
Olympism In Action quotes by Emily M. Danforth
#33. On the screen it rained and rained confetti, for minutes, and that glitter-rain, plus the cameras flashing and the lights from the billboards and the awesome mass of the crowds in their shiny hats and toothy smiles, made the world pop and shine and blur in a way that makes you sad to be watching it all on your TV screen, in a way that makes you feel like, instead of bringing the action into your living room, the TV cameras are just reminding you of how much you're missing, confronting you with it, you in your pajamas, on your couch, a couple of pizza crusts resting in some orange grease on a paper plate in front of you, your glass of soda mostly flat and watery, the ice all melted, and the good stuff happening miles and miles away from where you're at. #Quote by Emily M. Danforth
Olympism In Action quotes by Russell Eric Dobda
#34. The power to reach our goal is always in the moment. When the moment arrives, be ready to perform the action that will help you reach your goal, and be aware when the moment is now. #Quote by Russell Eric Dobda
Olympism In Action quotes by Jennifer Michael Hecht
#35. Prayer is based on the remote possibility that someone is actually listening; but so is a lot of conversation. If the former seems far-fetched, consider the latter: even if someone is listening to your story, and really hearing, that person will disappear from existence in the blink of a cosmic eye, so why bother to tell this perhaps illusory and possibly un-listening person something he or she is unlikely to truly understand, just before the two of you blip back out of existence? We like to talk to people who answer us, intelligently if possible, but we do talk without needing response or expecting comprehension. Sometimes, the event is the word, the act of speaking. Once we pull that apart a bit, the action of talking becomes more important than the question of whether the talking is working-because we know, going in, that the talking is not working. That said, one might as well pray. #Quote by Jennifer Michael Hecht
Olympism In Action quotes by Thomas Sowell
#36. However much history may be invoked in support of these policies (affirmative action), no policy can apply to history but can only apply to the present or the future. The past may be many things, but it is clearly irrevocable. Its sins can no more be purged than its achievements can be expunged. Those who suffered in centuries past are as much beyond our help as those who sinned are beyond our retribution. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Olympism In Action quotes by Colin Farrell
#37. Audiences will see what they want to see. Some will come out, hopefully enjoying two hours of action. Some people will find themselves gravitating towards the emotional dilemma that the characters find themselves in. Other people will see that there is some layer of subversions to the storytelling aspect of poking a finger of judgment at certain governments to the idea of foreign invasion, others maybe false pretenses. #Quote by Colin Farrell
Olympism In Action quotes by Marla Ruzicka
#38. We learned that we could move others to take action ... Even though we couldn't stop the war, I discovered that I could be involved in the movement for peace and justice. From that day on I knew that I was going to be committed to working for change ... #Quote by Marla Ruzicka
Olympism In Action quotes by Andy Serkis
#39. I don't see a difference between playing a performance capture role and a live action role, they're just characters to me at the end of the day and I'm an actor who wants to explore those characters in fantastically written scripts. The only caveat is a good story is a good character. #Quote by Andy Serkis
Olympism In Action quotes by Janice Kaplan
#40. Gratitude isn't just a feeling, it's an action. Expressing gratitude by writing in a journal, taking a photo, or shooting a video creates a lasting impression that can bring more gratitude into the world-for children and adults. #Quote by Janice Kaplan
Olympism In Action quotes by David Limbaugh
#41. The America of Obama's dreams is not the one of self-reliance and entrepreneurship to which he paid phony lip service at the beginning of his speech. It is an America in which the government, rather than the private sector, creates wealth and leads ignorant, helpless people by the nose from cradle to grave, from preschool to the academy, with the caveat that if they succeed too much, they will make themselves enemies of the state and targets for punitive action. Obama's new American dreams is an American nightmare. #Quote by David Limbaugh
