Sentiment without Action

I just came across a quote sourced as by Edward Abbey, "Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul." It is always nice to come across a quote that nicely expresses something you've held intuitively for a long time, and this is something I always need to work on. Spending less time feeling and planning and dreaming, and more time doing. Dreaming and planning are safe, do something, and you have let in the prospect of failure. I need to fail more.

There are a lot of amazing quotes by Edward Abbey on his wikiquote page, I'm sure I must have heard him many times, but this is the first time I have consciously noticed him.
