Your councils be long, your doings be slow, consider the end.marcus junius brutus

Mark this well, you proud men of action: You are nothing but the unwitting agents of the men of thought who often, in quiet self-effacement, mark out most exactly all your doings in advance.Heinrich Heine

Block the passages, shut the doors , And till the end your strength shall not fail. Open up the passages, increase your doings, And till your last day no help shall come to you.
