It is easy to sit up and take notice, What is difficult is getting up and taking action.
Most people of action are inclined to fatalism and most of thought believe in providence.
Power is action; the electoral principle is discussion. No political action is possible when discussion is permanently established.
We have long struggles with ourself, of which the outcome is one of our actions; they are, as it were, the inner side of human nature. This inner side is God's; the outer side belongs to men.
The man whose action habitually bears the stamp of his mind is a genius, but the greatest genius is not always equal to himself, or he would cease to be human.
