Action makes more fortune than caution.
Everywhere in life, the true question is not what we gain, but what we do.
It is vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquillity: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.
Thou wilt find rest from vain fancies if thou doest every act in life as though it were thy last.
Action and faith enslave thought, both of them in order not be troubled or inconvenienced by reflection, criticism, and doubt.
