The Power of Action

It doesn’t take great men to do things, but it is doing things that makes men great.
Arnold Glasgow

Never fail to do something because you don’t feel like it. Sometimes you just have to do it now, and you’ll feel like it later.
Marie Freeman

It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.
Mahatma Gandhi

It’s easier to act your way into new ways of feeling than to feel yourself into new ways of acting.
Susan Glaser

Motivation doesn’t really exist outside of action. Motivation is movement. By taking action, by setting out along the path, we start the process, we create our own motivation.
Anthony Grant and Jane Greene

The Right Thing

The right thing to do never requires any subterfuge; it is always simple and direct.
Calvin Coolidge

My obligation is to do the right thing. The rest is in God’s hands.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The expedient thing and the right thing are seldom the same thing.
Charles Brower

Always choose the hard right over an easy wrong.
Robert Dedman

Cowardice asks the question, “Is it safe?” Expediency asks the question, “Is it politic?” And Vanity comes along and asks the question, “Is it popular?” But Conscience asks the question, “Is it right?” And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Right Thing

I can honestly say that I was never affected by the question of the success of a task. If I felt it was the right thing to do, I was for it regardless of the possible outcome.
Golda Meir

My father taught me more than to do the right thing. My father taught me to know what the right thing is.
John McCain

The superior man seeks what is right; the inferior one, what is profitable.
Confucius

If you expect praise and recognition, it will seldom come. I really don’t know why, but life has demonstrated repeatedly that if your motive for doing something is to receive thanks or praise, you’ll often be disappointed. If, however, you go about doing the right thing, knowing that the doing is its own reward, you’ll be fulfilled whether or not you get recognition from others.
Mark Sanborn
