Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought.
Henri Bergson quotes
We need a type of theatre which not only releases the feelings, insights and impulses possible within the particular historical field of human relations in which the action takes place, but employs and encourages those thoughts and feelings which help transform the field itself.
Bertolt Brecht quotes
What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god -- the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals!
William Shakespeare quotes
The dread of evil is a much more forcible principle of human actions than the prospect of good.
John Locke quotes
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes
The mark of a good action is that it appears inevitable in retrospect.
Robert Louis Stevenson quotes
When once a man has made celebrity necessary to his happiness, he has put it in the power of the weakest and most timorous malignity, if not to take away his satisfaction, at least to withhold it. His enemies may indulge their pride by airy negligence and gratify their malice by quiet neutrality.
Samuel Johnson quotes
Nor do I take into account a danger of starting a chain reaction of a scope great enough to destroy part or all of the planetů But it is not necessary to imagine the earth being destroyed like a nova by a stellar explosion to understand vividly the growing scope of atomic war and to recognize that unless another war is prevented it is likely to ring destruction on a scale never before held possible, and even now hardly conceived, and that little civilization would survive it.
Albert Einstein quotes
One of the great attractions of patriotism it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what's more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous.
Aldous Huxley quotes
Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.
Andrew Jackson quotes
