I think the way WWE Studios is going now - they're going away from action, doing more drama, more comedy - it will open a lot of people's eyes. Because a lot of people see big guy, big frame: action superstar. We've proven, especially with 'Legendary,' that that is not always the case.
The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.
Human beings must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.
To withdraw is not to run away, and to stay is no wise action, when there's more reason to fear than to hope.
Miguel de Cervantes
Sometimes the situation is only a problem because it is looked at in a certain way. Looked at in another way, the right course of action may be so obvious that the problem no longer exists.
Edward de Bono
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 good action is never lost; it is a treasure laid up and guarded for the doer's need.
Pedro Calderon de la Barca
All my stories are about the action of grace on a character who is not very willing to support it, but most people think of these stories as hard, hopeless and brutal.
But we can hold our spirits and our bodies so pure and high, we may cherish such thoughts and such ideals, and dream such dreams of lofty purpose, that we can determine and know what manner of men we will be, whenever and wherever the hour strikes and calls to noble action.
I'm tired of fighting. I've always known that I can't be an action star all my life.
I would say, as an entrepreneur everything you do - every action you take in product development, in marketing, every conversation you have, everything you do - is an experiment. If you can conceptualize your work not as building features, not as launching campaigns, but as running experiments, you can get radically more done with less effort.
Besides entertainment and action, I want to educate. You know, as a producer or director, we do have a responsibility to society.
I don't want to be an action star; action star's life is so short. I want my life to get longer. I want my career to get longer.
I like to change characters and then, slowly I believe the audience treat me as, like an actor who can fight. It's not like an action star.
The life of an action star is very short. I want to be an actor like Robert De Niro , like Dustin Hoffman or Clint Eastwood who in their 70s or 80s can still act.
I now have two different audiences. There's the one that has been watching my action films for 20 years, and the American family audience. American jokes, less fighting.
Churchgoers in America are notorious for jumping into movements, even ideas that are hard to listen to. But when they actually have to change their lifestyle and do something about it, it rarely translates into action.
I'm not one that believes that affirmative action should be based on one's skin color or one's gender, I think it should be done based on one's need, because I think if you are from a poor white community, I think that poor white kid needs a scholarship just as badly as a poor black kid.
J. C. Watts
Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious, and they must be brought into connection with action. They must be woven together.
And affirmative action is a very nice term for racial discrimination against better-qualified white people in jobs, employment, promotions and scholarships, and college admittance.
Affirmative action was never meant to be permanent, and now is truly the time to move on to some other approach.
Where choice begins, Paradise ends, innocence ends, for what is Paradise but the absence of any need to choose this action?
The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action.
Both the man of science and the man of action live always at the edge of mystery, surrounded by it.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you ready or not, to put this plan into action.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
