We all possess wisdom that we lack the strength properly to enact in our lives.
—Alain de Botton in Religion for Atheists
It is only when you don’t vitally feel the truth of something that you say it is difficult to put it into action.
—Jiddu Krishnamurti in Think on These Things
Never retract, never explain, never apologize; get things done and let them howl.
With confidence, you have won before you have started.
Speech is conveniently located midway between thought and action, where it often substitutes for both.
—John Andrew Holmes
Well done is better than well said.
Justice is truth in action.
There are people who eat the earth and eat all the people on it, like in the Bible with the locusts. And other people who stand around and watch them eat it.
All the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action.
—James Russell Lowell
Never confuse movement with action.
Action is the foundational key to all success.
You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.
If you spend too much time dreaming, you’ll stop actually doing. And when you actually do stuff, there’s a good chance things will work out. We make things happen by attacking, not by sitting around dreaming.
—Miranda Kenneally in Catching Jordan
