“When we look at the world and try to make some sense of it, one of the most basic and crucial distinctions we all make—usually without even realizing it—is the difference between purposeful action versus mindless behavior.” -Robert Murphy

“A purposeful action is performed by a conscious being with a mind, who is trying to achieve a goal. Mindless behavior refers
to motions in the physical world that are the result of “mere nature” and not the intentions of another thinking being.” -Robert Murphy

“When we decide to interpret an event as a purposeful action, we are necessarily supposing that there must be an intelligent individual carrying out the action. (There can’t be an action without an actor.) So the connection between an action and an actor is a logical one, flowing out of the very concept of ‘purposeful action’ itself.” -Robert Murphy

“The main thing to realize is that getting richer in any way requires purposeful action. Desire is not enough.” -Mark Ford
