If all of us acted in unison as I act individually there would be no wars and no poverty. I have made myself personally responsible for the fate of every human being who has come my way.
Anais Nin
If you want a quality, act as if you already had it.
William James
In each action we must look beyond the action at our past, present, and future state, and at others whom it affects, and see the relations of all those things. And then we shall be very cautious.
Blaise Pascal
In the arena of human life the honors and rewards fall to those who show their good qualities in action
Aristotle
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Dale Carnegie
It behooves every man to remember that the work of the critic, is of altogether secondary importance, and that, in the end, progress is accomplished by the man who does things.
Theodore Roosevelt
It is by acts and not by ideas that people live.
Anatole France
It is easy to perform a good action, but not easy to acquire a settled habit of performing such actions.
Aristotle
It is easy to sit up and take notice, What is difficult is getting up and taking action.
Honore de Balzac
It is not only what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.
Moliere
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
Theodore Roosevelt
It is our less conscious thoughts and our less conscious actions which mainly mould our lives and the lives of those who spring from us.
Samuel Butler
It is vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility; they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it
Charlotte Bronte
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 on the world.
John Steinbeck
It should be noted that the games of children are not games, and must be considered as their most serious actions
Michel de Montaigne
It's not what I do, but the way I do it. It's not what I say, but the way I say it.
Mae West
Justice is truth in action.
Benjamin Disraeli
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Many men have been capable of doing a wise thing, more a cunning thing, but very few a generous thing
Alexander Pope
Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting a particular way. You become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions.
Aristotle
