A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on action, knowledge, meditation, peace, practice, religion, and attachment

Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice (of religious ritual). Better than knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment to results (of one's actions), because there follows immediate peace.

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on action, day, money, and work

The most trifling actions that affect a man's credit are to be regarded. The sound of your hammer at five in the morning, or at nine at night, heard by a creditor, makes him easy six months longer; but if he sees you at the billiard-table, or hears your voice at a tavern, when you should be at work, he sends for his money the next day.

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on action and opposites

When confronted with two courses of action I jot down on a piece of paper all the arguments in favor of each one - then on the opposite side I write the arguments against each one. Then by weighing the arguments pro and con and canceling them out, one against the other, I take the course indicated by what remains.
