“What is action? Action is commonplace, right action is not. As a discipline, it’s not any kind of action that will do, but direction action. Everything must be done in the service of the whole. Step by step, action by action, we’ll dismantle the obstacles in front of us. With persistence and flexibility, we’ll act in the best interest of our goals. Action requires courage, not brashness – creative application and not brute force. Our movements and decisions define us: We must be sure to act with deliberation, boldness and persistence. Those are the attributes of right and effective action. Nothing else – not thinking or evasion or aid from others. Action is the solution and the cure to our predicaments.”
