64 Action Quotes
Action quotes clearly show the contrast between doing and simply talking; perseverance over quitting and strength of character over weakness. These action quotes speak to the issue of inspiration to move forward and not to stay mired in a problem.
They speak of taking positive action when faced with a challenge rather than taking no action at all.
The word "action" defines its' intention - that is to move in direct opposition to being stuck. It is the forward movement in all of life that foreshadows accomplishment rather than
living in past glories or past success. Sometimes, as you will read, there is a cost or a risk to action; but, inaction never resolves anything.
