Famous quotes containing the word action:

    Not rarely, and this is especially true of wives and mothers, the motive behind assuming a disproportionate share of work and responsibility is completely unselfish. We want to protect, to spare those of whom we are fond. We forget that, regardless of the motive, the results of such action are almost always destructive and unproductive.
    Hortense Odlum (1892–?)

    Though with their high wrongs I am struck to the quick,
    Yet with my nobler reason ‘gainst my fury
    Do I take part. The rarer action is
    In virtue than in vengeance.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    When action grows unprofitable, gather information; when information grows unprofitable, sleep.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)
