Right Action quotes by Libba Bray

Right Action quotes by Foz Meadows
#6. We think of men as antiheroes, as capable of occupying an intense and fascinating moral grey area; of being able to fall, and rise, and fall again, but still be worthy of love on some fundamental level, because if it was the world and its failings that broke them, then we surely must owe them some sympathy. But women aren't allowed to be broken by the world; or if we are, it's the breaking that makes us villains. Wronged women turn into avenging furies, inhuman and monstrous: once we cross to the dark side, we become adversaries to be defeated, not lost souls in need of mending. Which is what happens, when you let benevolent sexism invest you in the idea that women are humanity's moral guardians and men its native renegades: because if female goodness is only ever an inherent quality – something we're born both with and to be – then once lost, it must necessarily be lost forever, a severed limb we can't regrow. Whereas male goodness, by virtue of being an acquired quality – something bestowed through the kindness of women, earned through right action or learned through struggle – can just as necessarily be gained and lost multiple times without being tarnished, like a jewel we might pawn in hardship, and later reclaim. #Quote by Foz Meadows
Right Action quotes by Gore Vidal
#7. Both Marx and Christ agree that in this life, a right action is consideration for the welfare of others. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Right Action quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#8. Life is illuminated by right understanding, right thought, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Right Action quotes by Alice Boyes
#9. Try a 30-Day Project for Overcoming Avoidance Coping

Avoidance coping habits aren't something you can snap your fingers and change. A 30-day project focused on gradually turning around avoidance coping can help. You can use this approach as an alternative to the exposure hierarchy if doing a 30-day project seems more appealing or relevant to you.
During the 30 days, take as many opportunities as you can to be less avoidant than you usually would be. This will help you overcome any problems you might have with not knowing where to start in reducing your avoidance. As situations come up, focus on taking some action, even if you're not certain what the absolute right action is. For example, if you're confused by all the options for backing up your digital photos in the cloud, you might ask your most tech-savvy friend what she does, and just go with that. You can always switch later.
Don't be too all-or-nothing about overcoming avoidance coping. We all have only so much willpower available for dealing with things we'd prefer not to do. The goal is to start unraveling your avoidance coping habits bit by bit. If you sometimes fall back into the avoidance coping trap, that's to be expected. #Quote by Alice Boyes
Right Action quotes by Dan Millman
#10. Use whatever knowledge you have but see its limitations. Knowledge alone does not suffice; it has no heart. No amount of knowledge will nourish or sustain your spirit; it can never bring you ultimate happiness or peace. Life requires more than knowledge; it requires intense feeling and constant energy. Life demands right action if knowledge is to come alive. #Quote by Dan Millman
Right Action quotes by Lawrence Kohlberg
#11. Right action tends to be defined in terms of general individual rights and standards that have been critically examined and agreed upon by the whole society. #Quote by Lawrence Kohlberg
Right Action quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#12. You can always cope with the Now, but you can never cope with the future - nor do you have to. The answer, the strength, the right action or the resource will be there when you need it, not before, not after. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Right Action quotes by Julia Cameron
#13. Balance is the key to my serenity. I attain balance by listening to my inner wisdom and to the wisdom of others. There is no situation in which I cannot find a point of balance. There is no circumstance in which I cannot find inner harmony. As I ask to be led into equilibrium and clarity, I will find that my answers come to me. I am wiser than I know, more capable of right action and attitudes than I yet believe. In every event, I seek the balance point of God's action through me. #Quote by Julia Cameron
Right Action quotes by Frederick Lenz
#14. Be concerned with the welfare of others without any sense of self-importance that one is better because one meditates or leads a certain type of life. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Right Action quotes by Avina Celeste
#15. If you want success, you have to accept that results won't be instantaneous. Everything good takes time to form. Give yourself a chance, a chance to succeed. A single right action won't be life changing. Make your success a habit not just an act of whim. Try and try again. As long as you haven't quit, you haven't failed. #Quote by Avina Celeste
Right Action quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#16. Analysis is paralysis, for it breeds judgment, whereas understanding breeds acceptance, which leads to right action without any judgment. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Right Action quotes by William Monahan
#17. I put no stock in religion. By the word religion I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the will of god. Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. What God desires is here [mind] and here [heart] and what you decide to do every day will make you a good man ... or not. #Quote by William Monahan
Right Action quotes by Bohdi Sanders
#18. If your thoughts are not right, your actions won't be right. #Quote by Bohdi Sanders
Right Action quotes by Max Heindel
#19. As exercise is necessary to the development of physical muscle, so development of the moral nature is accomplished through temptation. The soul being given choice, may exercise it in whatever direction it chooses, for it learns just as well by its mistakes as by right action in the first place, perhaps even better. #Quote by Max Heindel
Right Action quotes by Belsebuub
#20. To struggle against darkness is not to blunder ignorantly; intelligence is needed to generate right action. #Quote by Belsebuub
Right Action quotes by Brandon Bays
#21. Know that whatever is happening in your life right now, it's there for a reason. Just accept the things the way they are. Just relax and let go of all the mental constructs that your mind is creating. Acceptance leads to wholesome right action. #Quote by Brandon Bays
Right Action quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#22. Art, if it is to be reckoned as one of the great values of life, must teach man humility, tolerance, wisdom and magnanimity. The value of art is not beauty, but right action. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Right Action quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#23. Art, unless it leads to right action, is no more than the opium of an intelligentsia. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Right Action quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#24. Then, if action is possible or necessary, you take action or rather right action happens through you. Right action is action that is appropriate to the whole. When the action is accomplished, the alert, spacious stillness remains. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Right Action quotes by Matthew Donnelly
#25. The only reason that people 'Choose' to go backwards is because they let their mind take control. Their mind points them in that direction because it's convenient.

If we learn to quiet the mind the soul has a way of painting the bigger picture for taking the right action into growth. #Quote by Matthew Donnelly
Right Action quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#26. Beauty is power and elegance, right action, form fitting function, intelligence, and reasonability. And very often expressed in curves. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Right Action quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#27. Vigilance is demanded of Christians as the basic attitude for the "interim time". This vigilance means, on the one hand, that man does not lock himself into the here and now and concern himself only with tangible things, but that he raises his eyes above the present moment and its immediate urgency. Keeping one's gaze freely fixed upon God in order to receive from him the criterion of right action and the capacity for it - that is what matters. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Right Action quotes by Lao-Tzu
#28. The ancient Masters were profound and subtle.
Their wisdom was unfathomable.
There is no way to describe it;
all we can describe is their appearance.
They were careful
as someone crossing an iced-over stream.
Alert as a warrior in enemy territory.
Courteous as a guest.
Fluid as melting ice.
Shapable as a block of wood.
Receptive as a valley.
Clear as a glass of water.
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?
The Master doesn't seek fulfillment..
Not seeking, not expecting,
she is present, and can welcome all things. #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Right Action quotes by Bernie Glassman
#29. When we bear witness, when we become the situation - homelessness, poverty, illness, violence, death - the right action arises by itself. We don't have to worry about what to do. We don't have to figure out solutions ahead of time. Peacemaking is the functioning of bearing witness. Once we listen with our entire body and mind, loving action arises. #Quote by Bernie Glassman
Right Action quotes by Bahauddin
#30. 1:207-208
STEADINESS

Soul guides and prophets have an innate innocence, but they are subject to the same consequences as everyone. If a donkey veers off-course, he will be hit with a stick. If you do wrong, you will be punished. Abu Bakr said that steadiness is the central virtue. From the mind's stability comes right action which in turn balances the intelligence.

They asked me why prophets were given hardship. I said it helps to have clear indications. And I added silently to myself, Be more humble like someone held captive. Bow to the one who can free you.

Well beyond the reach of its fragrance,
I try to remember and say this longing. #Quote by Bahauddin
Right Action quotes by Judith Hanson Lasater
#31. I suggest that, before speaking or taking some other action, you first ask yourself these questions: Is it necessary? Is it true? Is it nonharming? If you can answer yes to all these questions, it may be okay to proceed. If not, you must weigh what is the right action in the situation. #Quote by Judith Hanson Lasater
Right Action quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#32. Is anger always just fear flung outward at the world? Can anger ever be a fuel for right action? Can anger make good? We #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Right Action quotes by Frederick Lenz
#33. Never settle for that which is easy and comfortable or the necessity of seeking that which is difficult and uncomfortable. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Right Action quotes by Johann Gottlieb Fichte
#34. A man can do what he ought to do; and when he says he cannot, it is because he will not. #Quote by Johann Gottlieb Fichte
Right Action quotes by Chris Prentiss
#35. From this moment forward, I am in control of every situation. I will always know the exact right action to take, and this is so. I will now obtain vibrant good health. I will have the possessions I want, I now have the power and wisdom to bring this about, and this is so. I will have peace and harmony in my life. I will have love and abundance, and this is so. I now claim all these things for my own from this time forward. #Quote by Chris Prentiss
Right Action quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#36. The Reverence of God is grace to act right. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Right Action quotes by Gautama Buddha
#37. This Ariyan Eightfold Path, that is to say: Right view, right aim, right speech, right action, right living, right effort, right mindfulness, right contemplation. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Right Action quotes by Phillips Brooks
#38. The best advisers, helpers and friends, always are not those who tell us how to act in special cases, but who give us, out of themselves, the ardent spirit and desire to act right, and leave us then, even through many blunders, to find out what our own form of right action is. #Quote by Phillips Brooks
Right Action quotes by Ann Aguirre
#39. Show, not tell, right? Action, not words. You don't want to hear how sorry I am or how things will be different this time. You want to see it with your own eyes. And until I can show you that, you won't tell me what I want to hear. #Quote by Ann Aguirre
Right Action quotes by Aristotle.
#40. Lawgivers make the citizens food by training them in habits of right action - this is the aim of all legislation, and if it fails to do this it is a failure. #Quote by Aristotle.
Right Action quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#41. Therefore all just persons are satisfied with their own praise. They refuse to explain themselves, and are content that new actions should do them that office. They believe that we communicate without speech, and above speech, and that no right action of ours is quite unaffecting to our friends, at whatever distance; for the influence of action is not to be measured by miles. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Right Action quotes by Goswami Kriyananda
#42. Trust life, even if you cannot trust people. For human nature is unreliable, but life itself is ruled by immutable law. Right action leads always, in the end, to victory. #Quote by Goswami Kriyananda
Right Action quotes by Sivananda
#43. You are not bound. You have got free will. You cannot change the experiences, the results of Prarabdha but you can change your future by right thinking and right action and thus make your will pure and irresistible. You can attain Self-realisatio n with the help of a dynamic will. #Quote by Sivananda
Right Action quotes by Jerry Pournelle
#44. In any ethical situation, the thing you want least to do is probably the right action. #Quote by Jerry Pournelle
Right Action quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#45. What will bring peace is inward transformation, which will lead to outward action. Inward transformation is not isolation, is not withdrawal from outward action. On the contrary, there can be right action only when there is right thinking and there is no right thinking when there is no self-knowledge. Without knowing yourself, there is no peace. An Ideal is merely an escape, an avoidance of what is, a contradiction of what is. An ideal prevents direct action upon what is. To have peace, we will have to love, we will have to begin not to live an ideal life but to see things as they are and act upon them, transform them. As long as each one of us is seeking psychological security, the physiological security we need; food, clothing and shelter, is destroyed. Some of you will nod your heads and say, "I agree", and go outside and do exactly the same as you have been doing for the last ten or twenty years. Your agreement is merely verbal and has no significance, for the world's miseries and wars are not going to be stopped by your casual assent. They will be only stopped when you realize the danger, when you realize your responsibility, when you do not leave it to somebody else. If you realize the suffering, if you see the urgency of immediate action and do not postpone, then you will transform yourself. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Right Action quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#46. With awareness there comes choice. And so you are able to say: "I allow this moment to be as it is". And then, suddenly, where before there was irritation, there is now a sense of aliveness and peace. And out of that comes right action. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Right Action quotes by Iain Pears
#47. [T]he concern of man is not his future but his present, not the world but his soul. We must be just, we must strive, we must engage ourselves with the business of the world for our own sake, because through that, and through contemplation in equal measure, our soul is purified and brought closer to the divine ... Thought and deed conjoined are crucial ... The attempt must be made; the outcome is irrelevant. Right action is a pale material reflection of the divine, but reflection it is, nonetheless. Define your goal and exert reason to accomplish it by virtuous action; successs or failure is secondary. #Quote by Iain Pears
Right Action quotes by Frederick Lenz
#48. The person who practices advanced meditation is usually not married, some are. They usually don't have children, some do. But chances are they will not marry or have children because it demands to much time. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Right Action quotes by Mark Victor Hansen
#49. Each of us must do massive right thinking, take massive right action and get massive right results, right here, right now. #Quote by Mark Victor Hansen
Right Action quotes by Frederick Lenz
#50. You can gain power by avoidance. You can gain power by doing certain things. You can gain much more power by meditating. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Right Action quotes by Debasish Mridha
#51. Don't wait longer. It is always the right time for the right action. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Right Action quotes by Dan Millman
#52. Peaceful warriors have the patience to wait until the mud settles and the water clears. They remain unmoving until the right time, so the right action arises by itself. They do not seek fulfillment, but wait with open arms to welcome all things. #Quote by Dan Millman
Right Action quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#53. Peace of mind produces right values, right values produce right thoughts. Right thoughts produce right actions and right actions produce work which will be a material reflection for others to see of the serenity at the center of it all. #Quote by Robert M. Pirsig
Right Action quotes by Brad Warner
#54. Real morality is based on a single criterion: right action, appropriate action, in the present moment and present situation. #Quote by Brad Warner
Right Action quotes by Mary Baker Eddy
#55. A little more grace, a motive made pure, a few truths tenderly told, a heart softened, a character subdued, a life consecrated, would restore the right action of the mental mechanism, and make manifest the movement of body and soul in accord with God. #Quote by Mary Baker Eddy
Right Action quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#56. To think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life-daily and hourly. Our answer must consist, not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl

"If there is another world (heaven), and a cause and effect (Karma) of good and bad actions, then it may be that, at the dissolution of the body, after death, I shall be reborn in a happy realm, a heavenly world." Of this first consolation (s)he is assured.

Right Action quotes by Irina Gajjar
#59. Buddha's goal was to help people avoid suffering by teaching them to live according to four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. The truths are that the world is full of suffering; that desire and attachment are the causes ofworldly life; that worldly life can be stopped if we destroy desire and attachment; and that to do this we must learn the way. The way is the Eightfold Path: right speech, right action; right living; right effort; right thinking; right meditation; right hopes; and right view. The Eightfold Path leads us to "Nirvana," a state of eternal bliss and peace. #Quote by Irina Gajjar
Right Action quotes by Frederick Lenz
#60. Even a good self will create another good self in the next life, and another one, and that good self will never be enlightened. You'll be bound, life after life, by good karma. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Right Action quotes by Frederick Lenz
#61. Some people say that if you have sex you can't be enlightened. I think it isn't really so much whether you have sex or not, but it's what you're doing with your attention level during that time. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Right Action quotes by Amit Ray
#62. Every moment is right moment for taking right decision and right action. #Quote by Amit Ray
Right Action quotes by Herbert Spencer
#63. Rightness expresses of actions, what straightness does of lines; and there can no more be two kinds of right action than there can be two kinds of straight lines. #Quote by Herbert Spencer
Right Action quotes by Seneca The Younger
#64. The real compensation of a right action is inherent in having performed it. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Right Action quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti

Right Action quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#66. Anger is a little thing. Hate is a little thing. Order is a little thing. Each of these little things has a major impact on the big picture. Right thinking, right action, and right response to the little things will help us conquer the big things, like injustice, inequality, poverty, and disorder. Until we are each able to conquer and master the little things in our lives, the big things will remain undone. #Quote by Iyanla Vanzant
Right Action quotes by Richard Rohr
#67. Right words make all of us feel falsely important. Right action keeps all of us forever beginners. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Right Action quotes by Henry George
#68. Social reform is not to be secured by noise and shouting; by complaints and denunciation; by the formation of parties, or the making of revolutions; but by the awakening of thought and the progress of ideas. Until there be correct thought, there cannot be right action; and when there is correct thought, right action will follow. #Quote by Henry George
Right Action quotes by Sathya Sai Baba
#69. Truth is man's nature; to be untrue is to be false to one's nature. dharma (Right Action) is the practical application in real life of the ideal of truth. Shanthi (Peace) is the result of Dharma and Preme (Love) is the sffulgence of Shanthi. #Quote by Sathya Sai Baba
Right Action quotes by Ian Fleming
#70. Who is this man?'
'Chinaman, or rather half Chinese and half German. Got a daft name. Calls himself Doctor No - Doctor Julius No.'
'No? Spelt like Yes?'
'That's right. #Quote by Ian Fleming
Right Action quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#71. What was really needed was a fundamental change in our attitude toward life. We had to learn ourselves and, furthermore, we had to teach the despairing men, that it did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life--daily and hourly. Our answer must consist, not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual.
These tasks, and therefore the meaning of life, differ from man to man, and from moment to moment. Thus it is impossible to define the meaning of life in a general way. Questions about the meaning of life can never be answered by sweeping statements. "Life" does not mean something vague, but something very real and concrete, just as life's tasks are also very real and concrete. They form man's destiny, which is different and unique for each individual. No man and no destiny can be compared with any other man or any other destiny. No situation repeats itself, and each situation calls for a different response. Sometimes the situation in which a man finds himself may require him to shape his own fate by action. At other times it is more advantageous for him to make use of an opportunity for contemplation and to realize assets in #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Right Action quotes by Mary Oliver
#72. Have I lived enough?
Have I loved enough?
Have I considered Right Action enough, have I
come to any conclusion?
Have I experienced happiness with sufficient gratitude?
Have I endured loneliness with grace? - A Thousand Mornings, Mary Oliver #Quote by Mary Oliver
Right Action quotes by Francisco X Stork
#73. How did Ixtel become real for me? The world is full of Ixtels who I can help without hurting my father. Why this one? How was it her suffering that touched me? Father. I feel connected to her through my father's actions. I feel an obligation to right my father's wrong. But why? Shouldn't my father's welfare come first? His welfare is my welfare. How does one weigh love for a parent against the urge to help someone in need? I feel like what is right should be done no matter what. This lack of doubt makes me feel inhuman. But it is not a question of my head for once. I hear the right note. I recognize the wrong note. Maybe the right action is a lake like this one, green and quiet and deep. #Quote by Francisco X Stork
Right Action quotes by Aldo Leopold
#74. Cease being intimidated by the argument that a right action is impossible because it does not yield maximum profits, or that a wrong action is to be condoned because it pays. #Quote by Aldo Leopold
Right Action quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#75. Right is lovely. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Right Action quotes by Peace Pilgrim
#76. I would like to emphasize again that right prayer leads to right action, that faith without works is dead. An excellent way to put thoughts into action is to write a letter for peace. #Quote by Peace Pilgrim
Right Action quotes by Joseph Murphy
#77. Whatever your conscious mind assumes and believes to be true, your subconscious mind will accept and bring to pass. Believe in good fortune, divine guidance, right action, and all the blessings of life. #Quote by Joseph Murphy
Right Action quotes by Salman Rushdie
#78. It seems there is no such thing as a purely good deed, a completely right action. Even this task, which i took on for the very best of reasons, involves making choices that are not that "good", choices that might even be "wrong". #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Right Action quotes by Terry Pratchett
#79. Belief was never mentioned at home, but right actions were taught by daily example. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Right Action quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#80. A good oration is good and a good understanding is better, but a good action in the right direction that gets the best results is the best! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Right Action quotes by Ryan Holiday
#81. Where the head goes, the body follows. Perception precedes action. Right action follows the right perspective. #Quote by Ryan Holiday
Right Action quotes by T. S. Eliot
#82. And right action is freedom from past and future also.
For most of us, this is the aim never to be realized. Who are only undefeated because we have gone on trying. The Dry Salvages #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Right Action quotes by Sasha Samy
#83. We are faced with choices every moment of our lives. Whatever choice we exercise must make us comfortable and at peace. Choices that are made out of fear and anxiety often do not lead to right action
Sasha Samy, Transcending Abuse & Betrayal. #Quote by Sasha Samy
Right Action quotes by Frederick Lenz
#84. You get to the point where you have to wash the dishes. That's the fun in life. Being behind the scenes and doing things for others; being an instrument of that cause. That is the secret teaching. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Right Action quotes by Kergan Edwards-Stout
#85. Upon reflection, I realize that your image of me right now might be a bit skewed. Actually, kind of fucked. I am neither a nihilist, inordinately depressed, nor jaded. Though I can be and have been all of the above, and fully expect to be again. #Quote by Kergan Edwards-Stout
Right Action quotes by Ruth Ahmed
#86. When I was a child I burnt the back of my right hand on a hot iron.

I can't recall the pain, but there's an eye-shaped scar as testament to it. As a teenager I used to think it was the all seeing eye of the anti-Christ and that I was the devil incarnate. Or at least a minion.

It was my right hand, innit?

What I do remember though is my father, or Dad as we called him, abandoning the polite Abbu, telling me not to cry and to be patient because the fires of hell were seventy times hotter than the fire of the iron. #Quote by Ruth Ahmed
Right Action quotes by Lloyd John Ogilvie
#87. Helping people is the action step that unlocks knowledge of the will of the Lord. The circumstances about which we are concerned have people in them. In fact, the key to solving our circumstances is being the Lord's person to the people in those circumstances. Few of the questions we have about guidance are purely personal, unrelated to others. #Quote by Lloyd John Ogilvie
Right Action quotes by Swati Avasthi
#88. But I'm not the one digging her grave; I didn't open her hole in the earth when I drove away that night or when I couldn't make her come with us. My dad dug it years ago; he forced her to lie down in it and kept her there by fear and beatings. And when she tried to get out, he stomped her back in. She has been lying there for twenty-five years. Her muscles have atrophied, her joints have stiffened, and she can't see anything except him and the tight little space she calls home. I don't know how she'll get out; I can tug and pull and yank, but it won't make any difference. She was right: she's gotta solve it her own way. #Quote by Swati Avasthi
Right Action quotes by John Brodie
#89. A player's effectiveness is directly related to his ability to be right there, doing that thing, in the moment. He can't be worrying about the past or the future or the crowd or some other extraneous event. He must be able to respond in the here and now. #Quote by John Brodie
Right Action quotes by Phyllis Chesler
#90. The idea that women's strong attachments to each other are what make them so vulnerable is horrifying. I count my close friendships with a few girls that I know as one of the best things I have going for me right now. My love for them leaves me open to hurt, but ... all love does, or at least that's the cliche. Perhaps girls and women do come to love each other too quickly, or once they are trapped into appearing as though they love one another, they don't want to back out of it. That is probably true. But a fear of confrontation in relationships is the downside. The ability to love easily is a positive. #Quote by Phyllis Chesler
Right Action quotes by Izikio

Right Action quotes by Susan Power
#92. I'm your friend now," she told Harley as she massaged his neck and shoulders. "I have plenty of soul to spare. I'm rubbing it into you right now, can you tell?" She was kneading his lower back with her knuckles, and Harley nodded because the warmth was spreading. Pumpkin was making her way into his heart, lighting the corners of his empty soul with a red-gold flame.

"You won't be alone now," Pumpkin crooned. "I'm part of you, like it or not."

And Harley could sleep. He could close his eyes without spinning away in darkness. He though that sleeping beside Pumpkin must be better than Frank Pike's crazy sex adventures, but he would keep her a secret. He would keep her locked in that little chamber she'd reached with her fingers through the very walls of his back. #Quote by Susan Power
Right Action quotes by Birch Bayh
#93. I look at the Senior Al Gore that I had the chance to serve in the Senate with. A great human being. He went down to defeat to this right wing bunch back at the time. #Quote by Birch Bayh
Right Action quotes by Harriet Taylor Mill
#94. We deny the right of any portion of the species to decide for another portion what is and what is not their 'proper sphere.' The proper sphere for all human beings is the largest and highest which they are able to attain to. #Quote by Harriet Taylor Mill
Right Action quotes by Pico Iyer
#95. He [Dalai Lama] feels, and I feel, and everyone feels the suffering and frustration of the Tibetans who long for action, who long for a militant response. But, in some ways very few of those individuals have ever been in the position of being head of state. #Quote by Pico Iyer
Right Action quotes by Philip Glass
#96. When I work with Godfrey, I don't spend a lot of time looking at the image. I look at it once. Maybe twice, but not more than twice. Then I depend on the inaccuracy of my memory to create the appropriate distance between the music and the image. I knew right away that the image and the music could not be on top of each other, because then there would be no room for the spectators to invent a place for themselves. Of course, in commercials and propaganda films, the producers don't want to leave a space: the strategy of propaganda is not to leave a space, not to leave any question. Commercials are propaganda tools in which image and music are locked together in order to make an explicit point, like "Buy these shoes" or "Go to this casino."
The strategy of art is precisely the opposite. I would describe it this way: When you listen to a piece of music and you look at an image at the same time, you are metaphorically making a journey to that image. It's a metaphorical distance, but it's a real one all the same, and it's in that journey that the spectator forms a relationship to the music and the image. Without that, it's all made for us and we don't have to invent anything. In works like Godfrey's, and in works, for that matter, like Bob Wilson's, the spectators are supposed to invent something. They are supposed to tell the story of Einstein. In Godfrey's movies Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi, the words in the title are the only words there are. The journey that we make from #Quote by Philip Glass

Right Action quotes by Ijeoma Oluo
#98. You have to get over the fear of facing the worst in yourself. You should instead fear unexamined racism. Fear the thought that right now, you could be contributing to the oppression of others and you don't know it. But do not fear those who bring that oppression to light. Do not fear the opportunity to do better. #Quote by Ijeoma Oluo
Right Action quotes by Jon Acuff
#99. You don't need to go back in time to be awesome; you just have to start right now. Regretting that you didn't start earlier is a great distraction from moving on your dream today, and the reality is that today is earlier than tomorrow. #Quote by Jon Acuff
Right Action quotes by Jules Henry
#100. Up to a certain point anxiety is good, for it promotes action. Beyond that point we freeze any fixed attitudes or rush about without thinking deeply from one decision to another. #Quote by Jules Henry
Right Action quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#101. The railway hit Harrow on the Hill in 1880 and it's been downhill ever since, culminating in one of those formless red brick shopping centres which artfully combines a complete lack of aesthetic quality with a total disregard for the utilitarian function for which it is built. As a result, your average shopper has only to spend ten minutes inside to be reduced to a state of quiet desperation. Primark has the right idea, being right by the entrance so that fleeing punters would grab the closest approximation to whatever it was they wanted before running screaming into the night.

Right Action quotes by Milton William Cooper
#104. We always know, we always know, which is the right way to go, and which is the wrong way to go. Sometimes, the wrong way is easier to go, or more satisfying, and so we choose that way instead of the right one and we justify it with complicated wordplay and such; but we are only kidding ourselves. #Quote by Milton William Cooper
Right Action quotes by Brenda Ueland
#105. In the same way there is much, much in all of us, but we do not know it. No one ever calls it out in us, unless we are lucky enough to know intelligent, imaginative, sympathetic people who love us and have the magnanimity to encourage us, to believe in us, by listening, by praise, by appreciation, by laughing. If you are going to write, you must become aware of this richness in you and come to believe in it and know it is there so that you can write opulently with with self-trust. Once you become aware of it, have faith in it, you will be all right. But it is like this: if you have a million dollars in the bank and don't know, it doesn't so you any good. #Quote by Brenda Ueland
Right Action quotes by Kate Beckinsale
#106. I think what's dangerous about being an actor who does action movies is you think, 'Well, I can totally handle myself now.' But if my opponent didn't know the other half of the routine, I don't know how well I'd do. #Quote by Kate Beckinsale
Right Action quotes by Jase Robertson
#107. What I realized is that God used a bearded, animal-skin-wearing, locust-eating wild man to prepare the way for His Son's ministry to the people on earth. But John the Baptist didn't look religious in any way. God told Samuel in 1 Samuel 16:7, "Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." It is the heart of a man that counts; the beard, in my opinion, is the exclamation point. If you believe a man's heart is right and his spiritual qualities are good, why would you judge him based on how much he shaves his face? As it says in Matthew 7:15, "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves." After I thought about that, I decided I would rather be a sheep in wolves' clothing than vice versa, you know? #Quote by Jase Robertson

Right Action quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#109. If we're lucky, we find the one person who will hold our trust and keep it sacred and safe against all attackers. That one soul who will restore our belief that people are decent and kind, and that life, while messy, is still the most wondrous gift anyone can know. But until that day comes, we have to try and remember that home isn't a specific place or person. It's a feeling we carry inside ourselves. That touch of the divine that lights a fire inside us that burns out the past and consumes the pain until nothing is left but a warmth that allows us to love others more than ourselves. A warmth that only grows when we do right even while others seek to do us wrong. Peace is knowing that one life, no matter how trivial it seems, touches thousands of others, and learningto respect that about all people. While you may not mean much to the world, to those who know and love you, you are their entire world. And it is knowledge that no one can hurt you unless you allow them to. The only power they have isn't something they're taken or demanded. It's what we give them by choice. And while it is imperative that we value the lives of others, it is equally important to value our own. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Right Action quotes by Ann Coulter
#111. Canada has become trouble recently ... It's always the worst Americans who go there ... We could have taken them over so easy. But I only want the western part, with the ski areas, the cowboys, and the right wingers. They're the only good parts of Canada. #Quote by Ann Coulter

#113. If you're going to need me, even if it's just to yell at, I'm going to stay right here."
"No, I want to take a shower. I'm not about to if you stay out there."
"Excuse me, but-huh? Then there will be two doors between you and me."
Some of the blood stayed in my cheeks as I found myself spluttering, "But you'll know I'm taking a shower!"
"You just told me you were going to! #Quote by Lia Habel

Right Action quotes by Wayne A. Grudem
#115. It is right that we long to be in the fellowship of God's people in which God's character is manifested, for when we delight in the godliness of God's people, we are ultimately delighting in God himself as we see his character evidenced in the lives of his people. #Quote by Wayne A. Grudem

Right Action quotes by Jack Weatherford
#119. The great actors of history cannot be neatly tucked between the covers of a book and filed away like so many pressed botanical specimens. Their actions cannot be explained according to a specific timetable like the coming and going of so many trains. Although scholars may designate the beginning and ending of an era with exact precision, great historical events, particularly those that erupt suddenly and violently, build up slowly, and, once having begun, never end. Their effects linger long after the action faded from view. Like the tingling vibrations of a bell that we can still sense well after it has stopped ringing, Genghis Khan has long passed from the scene, but his influence continues to reverberate through our time. #Quote by Jack Weatherford

Right Action quotes by Stefan Heym

Right Action quotes by Noah Galloway
#122. One of the days we were there, the program leaders, or mentors, as they were called, told us we couldn't go on any flights because of the threat of sandstorms. To kill time, the marine who had lost his hands and I decided to take advantage of the amenities in camp. So we headed to the pool. He wasn't wearing his prosthetic hands and when we arrived, I sat down on the edge of the pool, dangled my right leg in the water, and took off my left leg. We joked about how these guys got to go swimming on their days off. I mean, days off? I certainly never had one. As the two of us removed our limbs to get in the water, we noticed one of the active-duty guys already in the pool looking at us. He did a double take before asking, "What are y'all doing here?" Without a moment's hesitation, we both said in unison, "We're on vacation." We said it with a blatantly arrogant tone as if to say, You think you're deployed. We think you're on vacation. #Quote by Noah Galloway
Right Action quotes by Christopher Nolan
#123. Don't talk like one of them. You're not! Even if you'd like to be. To them, you're just a freak, like me! They need you right now, but when they don't, they'll cast you out, like a leper! You see, their morals, their code, it's a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these ... these civilized people, they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve. -The Joker #Quote by Christopher Nolan
Right Action quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#124. Your assumptions about the lives of others are in direct relation to your naïve pomposity. Many people you believe to be rich are not rich. Many people you think have it easy worked hard for what they got. Many people who seem to be gliding right along have suffered and are suffering. Many people who appear to you to be old and stupidly saddled down with kids and cars and houses were once every bit as hip and pompous as you. #Quote by Cheryl Strayed
Right Action quotes by K.J. Charles

"I'm not doing anything with a duck."
"Fine. Forget the duck. #Quote by K.J. Charles

Right Action quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#127. still the teachings of the philosophers are not the commandments of the gods, but the discoveries of men, who, at the prompting of their own speculative ability, made efforts to discover the hidden laws of nature, and the right and wrong in ethics, and in dialectic what was consequent according to the rules of logic, and what was inconsequent and erroneous. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
