Action quotes


Most people of action are inclined to fatalism and most of thought believe in providence.

   Honore de Balzac quotes

  

Say not that honor is the child of boldness, nor believe thou that the hazard of life alone can pay the price of it: it is not to the action that it is due, but to the manner of performing it.

   Akhenaton quotes

  

A lively, disinterested, persistent liking for truth is extraordinarily rare. Action and faith enslave thought, both of them in order not to be troubled or inconvenienced by reflection, criticism or doubt.

   Henri Frédéric Amiel quotes

  

The greatest joy I know is to do a good action by stealth, and have it found by accident.

   Charles Lamb quotes

  

Be not too tame neither, but let your own discretion be your tutor: suit the action to the word, the word to the action.

   William Shakespeare quotes

  

In peace, nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness, and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger, stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood...now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide, hold hard the breath, and bend up every spirit to its full height!

   William Shakespeare quotes

  

To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kindness that stands 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.

   Albert Schweitzer quotes

  

There is no object that we see; no action that we do; no good that we enjoy; no evil that we feel, or fear, but we may make some spiritual advantage of all: and he that makes such improvement is wise, as well as pious.

   Anne Bradstreet quotes

  

There are risks and costs to a program of action but they are far less than the long range risks and costs of comfortable inactions.

   John Fitzgerald Kennedy quotes

  

We must dare to think 'unthinkable' thoughts. We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world. We must learn to welcome and not to fear the voices of dissent. We must dare to think about 'unthinkable' things because when things become unthinkable, thinking stops and action becomes mindless.

   James W. Fulbright quotes
