Activity Quotes

Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right, or doing it better.

Horace Mann

Architecture is a social act and the material theater of human activity.

Spiro Kostof

It is not "history" which uses men as a means of achieving -- as if it were an individual person -- its own ends. History is nothing but the activity of men in pursuit of their ends.

Karl Marx

Snowboarding is an activity that is very popular with people who do not feel that regular skiing is lethal enough.

Dave Barry

Worry is the activity of a mind which does not understand its connection with Me


Food is a central activity of mankind and one of the single most significant trademarks of a culture.

The individual activity of one man with backbone will do more than a thousand men with a mere wishbone.

William J. H. Boetcker

Negativity sucks away energy. If part of the negativity stems from your attitude or perspective, commit yourself at the beginning of each day and each activity to find something positive in yourself and in others around you. If the people around you are negative and you can't change that, either remove yourself from the situation or view it simply as one obstacle you face in pursuing your own potential. Stay focused on your own goals and make the best of the situation.

Terry Orlick

How do we meditate silently? Just by not talking, just by not using outer words, we are not doing silent meditation. Silent meditation is totally different. When we start meditating in silence, right from the beginning we feel the bottom of a sea within us and without. The life of activity movement and restlessness is on the surface, but deep below, underneath our human life, there is poise and silence. So, either we shall imagine this sea of silence within us or we shall feel that we are nothing but a sea of poise itself

Sri Chinmoy

Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.

Greg Anderson

Fresh activity is the only means of overcoming adversity.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

The secret affinity between gambling and the desert . . . Gambling itself is a desert form, inhuman, uncultured, initiatory, a challenge to the natural economy of value, a crazed activity on the fringes of exchange. But it also has a strict limit and stops abruptly; its boundaries are exact, its passion knows no confusion. Neither the desert nor gambling are open areas; their spaces are finite and concentric, increasing in intensity toward the interior, toward a central point, be it the spirit of gambling or the heart of the desert a privileged, immemorial space, where things lose their shadow, where money loses its value, and where the extreme rarity of traces of what signals to us there leads men to seek the instantaneity of wealth.

Jean Baudrillard
