The link between ideas and action is rarely direct. There is almost always an intermediate step in which the idea is overcome. De Tocqueville points out that it is at times when passions start to govern human affairs that ideas are most obviously translated into political action. The translation of ideas into action is usually in the hands of people least likely to follow rational motives. Hence, it is that action is often the nemesis of ideas, and sometimes of the men who formulate them. One of the marks of the truly vigorous society is the ability to dispense with passion as a midwife of action the ability to pass directly from thought to action. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

I am very concerned about the actions of USDA to close beef processing plants in Montana. The timing of this action is disturbing. We hope USDA is not taking this action in retribution for MCA, R-CALF USA and Governor Schweitzer's recent actions to protect the Montana cow herd from Canadian bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). Governor Schweitzer purchased a 4-H pig during the Lewis and Clark County Fair, and that carcass is hanging at the Butte plant targeted for closure by USDA. (Quote by - Dennis McDonald)

The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs. (Quote by - Vance Havner)

By changing our actions today and doing our personal best as much as possible each day, we're building a history of past successes--changing tomorrow's past; thus building a solid platform today to see and act on the day's obstacles, opportunities, and possibilities with confidence. (Quote by - David C. Sasser)

Ironically, making a statement with words is the least effective method. (Quote by - Grey Livingston)

An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied. (Quote by - Arnold Glasow)

Men expect too much, do too little. (Quote by - Allen Tate)

Good actions ennoble us, we are the sons of our own deeds. (Quote by - Miguel de Cervantes)

If your work speaks for itself, don't interrupt. (Quote by - Henry J. Kaiser)

The word adult is misleading. It's a word used to describe one who is legally responsible for his or her actions. That's it. It doesn't in anyway confer or guarantee that a person, while gladly accepting the perks afforded adults, will accept any responsibility. (Quote by - Bobby W. Miller)

Action seems to follow feeling, but really action and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not. (Quote by - William James)

There are so many things that we wish we had done yesterday, so few that we feel like doing today. (Quote by - Mignon McLaughlin)
