To Men of Inaction

A minor thought in favour of men of inaction:

Richard Gloucester (Richard III): “talkers are no good doers, be assured we go to use our hands and not our tongues” (I.iii.350).

–Some of the most wicked deeds come from “men of action.” Having the power to have a will and put it to action, to be a “straight shooter,” is not a sufficient criteria of the admirable (the praiseworthy)  if the admirable is also opposed to the damnable (self-enclosed, self-consuming).
