10 Action Quotes

Action Quotes
Here’s a list of 10 quotes on the subject of ACTION:

1) Happiness is in action, and every power is intended for action; human happiness, therefore, can only be complete as all the powers have their full and legitimate play. -David Thomas

2) Remember you have not a sinew whose law of strength is not action; not a faculty of body, mind, or soul, whose law of improvement is not energy. -E.B. Hall

3) The more we do, the more we can do; the more busy we are the more leisure we have. -Hazlitt

4) To will and not to do when there is opportunity, is in reality not to will; and to love what is good and not to do it, when it is possible, is in reality not to love it. -Swedenborg

5) We must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary to us than thought. -Hazlitt

6) What man knows should find expression in what he does. The chief value of superior knowledge is that it leads to a performing manhood. -Bovee

7) We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best. -Philip James Bailey

8. It is good to dream, but it is better to dream and work. Faith is mighty, but action with faith is mightier. Desiring is helpful, but work and desire are invincible. -Thomas Robert Gaines

9) Many persons wonder why they don’t amount to more than they do, have good stuff in them, energetic, persevering, and have ample opportunites. It is all a case of trimming the useless branches and throwing the whole force of power into the development of something that counts. -Walter J. Johnston

10) Sorrow is the mere rust of the soul. Activity will cleanse and brighten it. -Samuel Johnson

    I liked the “the more busy you are the more time you have”
    my boss would agree too…..time is a strange thing.
    i find that the more you use it, the more you have.
    The more you chase it – the quicker it disappears.

    keep up the good work………………

    Not to burn the bridges is a sure way of saying “I’ll be Back”
    To Burn the Bridges is to assure yourself that you can’t retrack.
    Press on, steer the course, never give up
    For the Creator, The source will always fill your cup.
