Prayer is where the action is.
I accept the Old Testament as more of an action movie: blood, car chases, evacuations, a lot of special effects, seas dividing, mass murder, adultery. The children of God are running amok, wayward. Maybe that's why they're so relatable.
All my stories are about the action of grace on a character who is not very willing to support it, but most people think of these stories as hard, hopeless and brutal.
I love doing the action stuff. It's soooo much fun!
The life of an action star is very short. I want to be an actor like Robert De Niro, like Dustin Hoffman or Clint Eastwood who in their 70s or 80s can still act.
I like to change characters and then, slowly I believe the audience treat me as, like an actor who can fight. It's not like an action star.
I don't want to be an action star; action star's life is so short. I want my life to get longer. I want my career to get longer.
There's a gap somehow between empathy and activism. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke of 'soul force' - something that emanates from a deep truth inside of us and empowers us to act. Once you identify your inner genius, you will be able to take action, whether it's writing a check or digging a well.
Sue Monk Kidd
Our country also hungers for leadership to ensure the long-term survival of our Social Security system. With 70 million baby boomers in this country on the verge of retirement, we need to take action to shore up the system.
Kay Bailey Hutchison
Churchgoers in America are notorious for jumping into movements, even ideas that are hard to listen to. But when they actually have to change their lifestyle and do something about it, it rarely translates into action.
Rational behavior requires theory. Reactive behavior requires only reflex action.
W. Edwards Deming
Trust your gut feeling about things, listen to what others are saying, and look at the results of your actions. Once you know the truth, you can set about taking action to improve. Everyone will be better for it.
I would say, as an entrepreneur everything you do - every action you take in product development, in marketing, every conversation you have, everything you do - is an experiment. If you can conceptualize your work not as building features, not as launching campaigns, but as running experiments, you can get radically more done with less effort.
Do not wait for extraordinary circumstances to do good action; try to use ordinary situations.
Have a bias toward action - let's see something happen now. You can break that big plan into small steps and take the first step right away.
Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious, and they must be brought into connection with action. They must be woven together.
And affirmative action is a very nice term for racial discrimination against better-qualified white people in jobs, employment, promotions and scholarships, and college admittance.
Affirmative action was never meant to be permanent, and now is truly the time to move on to some other approach.
Nothing is more terrible than to see ignorance in action.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A certain amount of impatience may be useful to stimulate and motivate us to action. However, I believe that a lack of patience is a major cause of the difficulties and unhappiness in the world today.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Where choice begins, Paradise ends, innocence ends, for what is Paradise but the absence of any need to choose this action?
Every art and every inquiry, and similarly every action and choice, is thought to aim at some good; and for this reason the good has rightly been declared to be that at which all things aim.
Chaotic action is preferable to orderly inaction.
It is funny that men who are supposed to be scientific cannot get themselves to realise the basic principle of physics, that action and reaction are equal and opposite, that when you persecute people you always rouse them to be strong and stronger.
Both the man of science and the man of action live always at the edge of mystery, surrounded by it.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
Martin Luther King, Jr.
