Actions and consequences Quotes

Leaders are responsible not for running public opinion polls but for the consequences of their actions.

Henry A. Kissinger

A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.

Sivananda

IMMORAL, adj. Inexpedient. Whatever in the long run and with regard to the greater number of instances men find to be generally inexpedient comes to be considered wrong, wicked, immoral. If man\'s notions of right and wrong have any other basis than this of expediency; if they originated, or could have originated, in any other way; if actions have in themselves a moral character apart from, and nowise dependent on, their consequences --then all philosophy is a lie and reason a disorder of the mind.

Ambrose Bierce

Ambrose Bierce

It appears that mankind in this life are not agents of trial for eternity, but that they will eternally remain agents of trial. To suppose that our eternal circumstances will be unalterably fixed in happiness or misery, in consequence of the agency or transactions of this temporary life, is inconsistent with the moral government of God, and the progressive and retrospective knowledge of the human mind. God has not put it into our power to plunge ourselves into eternal woe and perdition; human liberty is not so extensive, for the term of human life bears no proportion to eternity succeeding it; so that there could be no proportion between a momentary agency, (which is liberty of action,) or probation, and any supposed eternal consequences of happiness or misery resulting from it.

Ethan Allen

I dont give advice. I cant tell anybody what to do. Instead I say this is what we know about this problem at this time. And here are the consequences of these actions.

Joyce Brothers

In magicand in lifethere is only the present moment, the now. You cant measure time the way you measure the distance between two points. Time doesnt pass. We human beings have enormous difficulty in focusing on the present; were always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and about why we didnt act as we should have. Or else we think about the future, about what were going to do tomorrow, what precautions we should take, what dangers await us around the next corner, how to avoid what we dont want and how to get what we have always dreamed of.

Paulo Coelho
