When I was kidnapped, my parents snapped into action. They rented out my room.
The world can only be grasped by action, not by contemplation. The hand is the cutting edge of the mind.
In the end, leadership comes down to consistency and strong, confident action upon which the team can rely - and this doesn't mean imposing a bunch of rules.
Religious liberty is the first freedom in our Constitution. And whether the cause is justice for the persecuted, compassion for the needy and the sick, or mercy for the child waiting to be born, there is no greater force for good in the nation than Christian conscience in action.
To be without guile is to be free of deceit, cunning, hypocrisy, and dishonesty in thought or action.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Is fear preventing you from taking action? Acknowledge the fear, watch it, take your attention into it, be fully present with it. Doing so cuts the link between the fear and your thinking. Don't let the fear rise up into your mind. Use the power of the Now. Fear cannot prevail against it.
Every action we take, everything we do, is either a victory or defeat in the struggle to become what we want to be.
Ninon de L'Enclos
So much of the world's suffering results from the sinful action or inaction of ourselves and others.

John C. Maxwell
The great end of life is not knowledge but action.
A categorical imperative would be one which represented an action as objectively necessary in itself, without reference to any other purpose.
To make one good action succeed another, is the perfection of goodness.
Ali ibn Abi Talib
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
Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of religion all have a double aspect - freedom of thought and freedom of action.
All fiction is about people, unless it's about rabbits pretending to be people. It's all essentially characters in action, which means characters moving through time and changes taking place, and that's what we call 'the plot'.
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.
But the action film genre is gonna have to come up with some new bad guys.
Critical and liberating dialogue, which presupposes action, must be carried on with the oppressed at whatever the stage of their struggle for liberation. The content of that dialogue can and should vary in accordance with historical conditions and the level at which the oppressed perceive reality.
