Men must be decided on what they will not do, and then they are able to act with vigor in what they ought to do.
      - Mencius, Works (bk. IV, pt. II, ch. VIII)

The keen spirit
  Seizes the prompt occasion--makes the thought
    Start into instant action, and at once
      Plans and performs, resolves and executes.
      - Hannah More

If you choose not to decide, you still haven't made a choice.
      - Neil Peart, Freewill,
        from the original written lyrics on 1980 "Permanent Waves" album by the rock group Rush, note that the words actually sung were ". . . you still have made a choice."

It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.
      - Anthony (Tony) J. Robbins

Advise well before you begin; and when you have decided, act promptly.
      - Sallust (Caius Sallustius Crispus)

For what I will, I will, and there an end.
      - William Shakespeare

Heaven never helps the man who will not act.
      - William Shakespeare

I'll not budge an inch.
      - William Shakespeare

Determine on some course,
  More than a wild exposure to each chance
    That starts i' th' way before thee.
      - William Shakespeare, Coriolanus
         (Volumnia at IV, i)

The reasons you allege do more conduce
  To the hot passion of distemp'red blood
    Than to make up a free determination
      'Twixt right and wrong, for pleasure and revenge
        Have ears more deaf than adders to the voice
          Of any true decision.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The History of Troilus and Cressida
         (Hector at II, ii)

My will is something sorted with his wish.
  Muse not that I thus suddenly proceed,
    For what I will, I will, and there an end.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Two Gentlemen of Verona
         (Antonio at I, iii)

Heaven ne'er helps the men who will not act.
      - Sophocles, Fragment (288)

Decision is a vastly important thing with a convicted sinner. He must choose, or he must be lost. If he will not do it, he may expect the Divine Spirit to depart from him, and leave him to his own way.
      - Ichabod Smith Spencer

The souls of men of feeble purpose are the graveyards of good intentions.
      - Unknown

Men first make up their minds (and the smaller the mind the sooner made up), and then seek for the reasons; and if they chance to stumble upon a good reason, of course they do not reject it. But though they are right, they are only right by chance.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

The nervous system and the automatic machine are fundamentally alike in that they are devices, which make decisions on the basis of decisions they made in the past.
      - Norbert Wiener

All may do what has by man been done.
      - Edward Young
