We have many high sounding words, and to few actions that correspond with them.
Abigal Adams

Deliberation is the function of the many; action is the function of one.
Charles de Gaulle

Somewhere deep down we know that in the final analysis we do decide each thing and that even our decisions to let somebody else decide are really our own decisions, however pusillaminous.
Harvey Cox

There is pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but nature more...

Lord Byron
