The great end of life is not knowledge but action.
Nothing happens in a vacuum in life: every action has a series of consequences, and sometimes it takes a long time to fully understand the consequences of our actions.
The best way to avoid a bad action is by doing a good one, for there is no difficulty in the world like that of trying to do nothing.
Action, looks, words, steps, form the alphabet by which you may spell character.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
When you cannot make up your mind which of two evenly balanced courses of action you should take - choose the bolder.
Action is character.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
So act that your principle of action might safely be made a law for the whole world.
Tanks being deployed far forward is an indication of offensive action; tanks in depth is an indication of defensive action.
Only through the conscious action of the working masses in city and country can it be brought to life, only through the people's highest intellectual maturity and inexhaustible idealism can it be brought safely through all storms and find its way to port.
Intelligence alone does not get us where we need to go or even necessarily where we want to go. For that, the human creature must exercise harder-won capacities of wisdom, and wise action.
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
Power doesn't back up in the face of a smile, or in the face of a threat of some kind of nonviolent loving action. It's not the nature of power to back up in the face of anything but some more power.
The writer must be a participant in the scene... like a film director who writes his own scripts, does his own camera work, and somehow manages to film himself in action, as the protagonist or at least the main character.
Hunter S. Thompson
Justice is truth in action.
Sin, also for those who don't have faith, exists when one goes against one's conscience. To listen to and obey it means, in fact, to decide in face of what is perceived as good or evil. And on this decision pivots the goodness or malice of our action.
There are two good things in life - freedom of thought and freedom of action.
W. Somerset Maugham
A life lived of choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived of chance is a life of unconscious creation.
Neale Donald Walsch
When thought becomes excessively painful, action is the finest remedy.
Mark this well, you proud men of action! you are, after all, nothing but unconscious instruments of the men of thought.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
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.
All men of action are dreamers.
Action gives power. Entire harmony pervades the universe of God. All the heavenly beings are in constant activity; and the Lord Jesus, in His life work, has given an example for every one.
Ellen G. White
Necessity of action takes away the fear of the act, and makes bold resolution the favorite of fortune.
The only cure for grief is action.
George Henry Lewes
Assurance, action, and evidence influence each other in an ongoing process. This helix is like a coil, and as it spirals upward it expands and widens. These three elements of faith - assurance, action, and evidence - are not separate and discrete; rather, they are interrelated and continuous and cycle upward.
David A. Bednar
Martin Luther King, Jr.

If you don't drive your business, you will be driven out of business.
B. C. Forbes
