The great living experience for every man is his adventure into the woman. The man embraces in the woman all that is not himself, and from that one resultant, from that embrace, comes every new action.
D. H. Lawrence
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
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
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.
Expand the definition of 'reading' to include non-fiction, humor, graphic novels, magazines, action adventure, and, yes, even websites. It's the pleasure of reading that counts; the focus will naturally broaden. A boy won't read shark books forever.
Affirmative action has a negative effect on our society when it means counting us like so many beans and dividing us into separate piles.
It is unnatural for a majority to rule, for a majority can seldom be organized and united for specific action, and a minority can.
You see, idealism detached from action is just a dream. But idealism allied with pragmatism, with rolling up your sleeves and making the world bend a bit, is very exciting. It's very real. It's very strong.
He is the best man who, when making his plans, fears and reflects on everything that can happen to him, but in the moment of action is bold.
Earth Day 1970 was irrefutable evidence that the American people understood the environmental threat and wanted action to resolve it.
Affirmative action was never meant to be permanent, and now is truly the time to move on to some other approach.
There's a lot of Americans, black and white, who think that we've arrived where we need to be and nothing else needs to be done and affirmative action needs to be dismantled.
There are three essential factors in all human activity: spirit, materials, and action.
President Obama is doing the right thing by offering young immigrants, most often in this country through no action of their own, a chance to live and work openly, free from the fear of deportation.
Right action tends to be defined in terms of general individual rights and standards that have been critically examined and agreed upon by the whole society.
I must lose myself in action, lest I wither in despair.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
We want deeper sincerity of motive, a greater courage in speech and earnestness in action.
Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought.
Please let me assure you, however, that the keen disappointment and regret which I feel in this regard serve only to enhance my profound appreciation of the great honor which you have done me; and my sincere gratitude for your generous action.
Where choice begins, Paradise ends, innocence ends, for what is Paradise but the absence of any need to choose this action?
So much of the world's suffering results from the sinful action or inaction of ourselves and others. For example, people look at a famine and wonder where God is, but the world produces enough food for each person to have 3,000 calories a day. It's our own irresponsibility and self-centeredness that prevents people from getting fed.
It is easy to ignore responsibility when one is only an intermediate link in a chain of action.
Suit the action to the word, the word to the action.
Never confuse motion with action.
In constructing the plot and working it out with the proper diction, the poet should place the scene, as far as possible, before his eyes. In this way, seeing everything with the utmost vividness, as if he were a spectator of the action, he will discover what is in keeping with it, and be most unlikely to overlook inconsistencies.
John F. Kennedy
