Action

In battle… words are meaningless. Men will say anything if they think it will give them an advantage. Only action has any meaning. Action is distilled intent.
Eric Van Lustbader. Jian

Inuyasha___Action_practice_by_majochanThe credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood… Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself at a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and… if he fails, at least fails daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold timid souls who know neither defeat nor victory.
John F Kennedy

It is required of a man that he should share the action and passion of his times at peril of being judged not to have lived.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

Man must sit in chair with mouth open for very long time before roast duck fly in.
Chinese proverb

Action is character.
F Scott Fitzgerald

The great questions of the day are not decided by speeches and majority votes, but by blood and iron.
Otto von Bismarck
