I knew this was not original to my old high school basketball coach.
I guess Thomas Jefferson said it first?
On action, Leonardo da Vinci agrees.
One of our country’s founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson had an appetite for action. He said, “Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act. Action will delineate and define you.” He also said, “Determine never to be idle. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.” Another one of Jefferson’s great quotes: “I’m a great believer in luck; and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.”
