Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
Charles de Gaulle
I like to encourage people to realize that any action is a good action if it's proactive and there is positive intent behind it.
Michael J. Fox
Revolutionaries who come to power by force of arms usually have great crimes in their background. Leaders who survive campaigns by great powers to destroy them do not survive because they observe the niceties of law. Subversives who shape world events by covert action and violence work in shadows and detest the light of day.
People should not judge me on what they hear. Let them wait and see me in action. Then they will see how I serve my people.
Salva Kiir Mayardit
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
Never mistake motion for action.
The world is full of people who have dreams of playing at Carnegie Hall, of running a marathon, and of owning their own business. The difference between the people who make it across the finish line and everyone else is one simple thing: an action plan.

Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Action expresses priorities.
It is unnatural for a majority to rule, for a majority can seldom be organized and united for specific action, and a minority can.
There are three essential factors in all human activity: spirit, materials, and action.
A dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement.
The idea that UN commitments should be followed by action is indeed a radical one, especially for the United States, where wilful neglect of its own commitments is the rule.
To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person.
Action is the real measure of intelligence.
Chaotic action is preferable to orderly inaction.
All the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action.
James Russell Lowell
While we are living in the present, we must celebrate life every day, knowing that we are becoming history with every work, every action, every deed.
Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action.

Indian actors, because of the format of our stories, need to be good actors, and be able to perform emotional sequences, do a bit of comedy, dance and singing, action, because all of this forms just one film. In many ways I'd say there are greater demands on Indian actors than there are on Hollywood.
When I was really small, my mother had difficulty keeping me dressed, as I liked to be naked! I definitely had very strong ideas on what I wanted to wear. My favourite look was always Action Man and Spiderman. Now though, I really like beautiful clothes.
Leonardo da Vinci
