Never confuse movement with action.

Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious, and they must be brought into connection with action. They must be woven together.
Chaotic action is preferable to orderly inaction.
Be wary of the man who urges an action in which he himself incurs no risk.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.
Choice of attention - to pay attention to this and ignore that - is to the inner life what choice of action is to the outer. In both cases, a man is responsible for his choice and must accept the consequences, whatever they may be.
W. H. Auden
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.

Most action is based on redemption and revenge, and that's a formula. Moby Dick was formula. It's how you get to the conclusion that makes it interesting.
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.
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
Here's the point - you're looking at affirmative action, and you're looking at marijuana. You legalize marijuana, no need for quotas, because really, who's gonna wanna work?
Our enemies can deal a blow to us any time they wish. They did not wait for permission to do this. They do not deal a blow with prior notice. They do not take action because they can't.
Those who are politically apathetic can only survive if they are supported by people who are capable of taking action.
Reconciliation requires changes of heart and spirit, as well as social and economic change. It requires symbolic as well as practical action.

E. Stanley Jones
Deliberation is the work of many men. Action, of one alone.
Charles de Gaulle

I do have moments when I feel insecure. I do have moments when I feel jealous, and that's normal. It's a very normal emotion. It's your action and your attitude and your reaction to that that is important.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
