Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
It is a common observation that those who dwell continually upon their expectations are apt to become oblivious to the requirements of their actual situation.
Action is eloquence.
There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.
The shortest answer is doing.
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.
Inspirations never go in for long engagements; they demand immediate marriage to action.
He that is overcautious will accomplish little.
We don't have enough time to premeditate all our actions.
The opportunity is often lost by deliberating.
You decide you'll wait for your pitch. Then as the ball starts toward the plate, you think about your stance. And then you think about your swing. And then you realize that the ball that went past you for a strike was your pitch.
So what do we do? Anything. Something. So long as we just don't sit there. If we screw it up, start over. Try something else. If we wait until we've satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late.
Often greater risk is involved in postponement than in making a wrong decision.
Do not wait for ideal circumstances, nor the best opportunities; they will never come.
Conditions are never just right. People who delay action until all factors are favorable do nothing.
Common sense does not ask an impossible chessboard, but takes the one before it and plays the game.
He who postpones the hour of living is like the rustic who waits for the river to run out before he crosses.
If you wait for inspiration you'll be standing on the corner after the parade is a mile down the street.
Nothing at all will be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.
Act decidedly and take the consequences. No good is ever done by hesitation.
