A tragedy is a representation of an action that is whole and complete and of a certain magnitude. A whole is what has a beginning and middle and end.
Until the men of action clear out the talkers we who have social consciences are at the mercy of those who have none.
George Bernard Shaw
Never confuse movement with action.
The curse of me and my nation is that we always think things can be bettered by immediate action of some sort, any sort rather than no sort.
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
Remember, a real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided.
Most people don't like change. They revolt against it unless they can clearly see the advantage it brings. For that reason, when good leaders prepare to take action or make changes, they take people through a process to get them ready for it.
John C. Maxwell
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.

Yet we act as if simple cause and effect is at work. We push to find the one simple reason things have gone wrong. We look for the one action, or the one person, that created this mess. As soon as we find someone to blame, we act as if we've solved the problem.
Margaret J. Wheatley
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.

John F. Kennedy
