Action

The curse of me and my nation is that we always think things can be bettered by immediate action of some sort,

any sort rather than no sort.     Plato

Plato (428/427 or 424/423 – 348/347 BC) was a philosopher in Classical Greece and the founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. He is widely considered the most pivotal figure in the development of philosophy, especially the Western tradition. Unlike nearly all of his philosophical contemporaries, Plato’s entire work is believed to have survived intact for over 2,400 years.

 

Whether they knew it or not these men were echoing Plato.

Don’t mistake activity with achievement.  ― John Wooden

Do not confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps  moving but does not make any progress.   ― Alfred A. Montapert
