Quote of the Day
Step with care and great tact, and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
Charles R. Swindoll
Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
The simple act of saying 'thank you' is a demonstration of gratitude in response to an experience that was meaningful to a customer or citizen.
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
T. E. Lawrence
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.
Barbara de Angelis
Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
Simone de Beauvoir
There is no life to be found in violence. Every act of violence brings us closer to death. Whether it's the mundane violence we do to our bodies by overeating toxic food or drink or the extreme violence of child abuse, domestic warfare, life-threatening poverty, addiction, or state terrorism.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.
The secret of getting things done is to act!
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Listening is a positive act: you have to put yourself out to do it.
You don't have to be a certain thing to be cool. If you're white, you don't have to act black or whatever. Just be you and know who you are.
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws.
The preservation of peace and the guaranteeing of man's basic freedoms and rights require courage and eternal vigilance: courage to speak and act - and if necessary, to suffer and die - for truth and justice; eternal vigilance, that the least transgression of international morality shall not go undetected and unremedied.
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
