Famous quotes containing the word actions:
“The advantage of time and place in all practical actions is half a victory; which being lost is irrecoverable.”
—Francis, Sir Drake (15401596)
“I also believe that few people remain completely untouched by the thought that instead of the life they lead there might also be another, where all actions proceed from a very personal state of excitement. Where actions have meanings, not just causes. And where a person, to use a trivial word, is happy, and not just nervously tormenting himself.”
—Robert Musil (18801942)
“From a purely external point of view there is no will; and to find will in any phenomenon requires a certain empathy; we observe a mans actions and place ourselves partly but not wholly in his position; or we act, and place ourselves partly in the position of an outsider.”
—T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
