Quotes About Intentions And Actions

What does it matter if another player, your friend or rival, intended good things and had only your interests at heart, if the effects of his action lead to so much ruin and confusion? It is only natural for people to cover up their actions with all kinds of justifications, always assuming that they have acted out of goodness. You must learn to inwardly laugh each time you hear this and never get caught up in gauging someones intentions and actions through a set of moral judgments that are really an excuse for the accumulation of power.
— Robert Greene —

When our actions are based on good intentions our soul has not regrets.

— Anthony Douglas Williams

There are times in relationships, when we blow it. In spite of our best intentions, we wrong others. Our jealousy makes us feel inferior. Our own wounds cause us to act irrationally. Our insecurities lead us to say hurtful things.
And so, we find ourselves acting out. In short, we cloud our lives with muddy water. We trash around the pond of our emotions until things are just too messed up to figure out how to fix them.
It is in the times of muddy water that we learn how to wait it out. We have to wait until the mud settles. We must wait until we can clearly see where the water of our lives ends and the mud of misplaced emotions begin.
Have the patience to wait until the mud settles. Be still until the water is clear. In clear water, words come. Right actions reveal them selves and healing appears.
From the Devotional A Word in Season

— Stella Payton

When you are so ashamed of your actions, thoughts, or intentions, you lie rather than accepting yourself for who you really are-or, in this case, pretend something happened when it didn't. The idea of how others see you becomes more important than the reality of you.

— Michael J. Sullivan

The smallest of actions is always better than the noblest of intentions.

— Robin S. Sharma

Despite popular belief to the contrary, there is absolutely no power in intention. The seagull may intend to fly away, may decide to do so, may talk with the other seagulls about how wonderful it is to fly, but until the seagull flaps his wings and takes to the air, he is still on the dock. There's no difference between that gull and all the others. Likewise, there is no difference in the person who intends to do things differently and the one who never thinks about it in the first place. Have you ever considered how often we judge ourselves by our intentions while we judge others by their actions? Yet intention without action is an insult to those who expect the best from you.

— Andy Andrews

Intentions count for far less than the consequences of the actions born from them.

— Jim Butcher

I think I'll be going to Heaven, because I had good intentions. But my actions are another thing.

— Curtis Jackson

Good intentions might sound nice, but it's positive actions that matter.

— Tim Fargo

I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we've struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We've made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.

— Barack Obama

The gap between intentions and actions is character.

— Orrin Woodward

When an inscrutable technology becomes an invisible technology, we would be wise to be concerned. At that point, the technology's assumptions and intentions have infiltrated our own desires and actions. We no longer know whether the software is aiding s or controlling us. We're behind the wheel, but we can't be sure who's driving.

— Nicholas Carr

We judge ourselves mostly by our intentions, but others judge us mostly by our actions.

— Eric Harvey
