Action is coarsened thought; thought becomes concrete, obscure, and unconscious.

Amiel, Henri Frederic

Well done is better than well said.

Franklin, Benjamin

All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire.

Gita, Bhagavad

Action is the product of the Qualities inherent in Nature.

Gita, Bhagavad

Do not wait for extraordinary circumstances to do good action; try to use ordinary situations.

Richter, Jean Paul

He who considers too much will perform little.

Schiller, Johann Von

Be great in act, as you have been in thought.

Shakespeare, William

It is the mark of a good action that it appears inevitable in retrospect.

Stevenson, Robert Louis
