The verb is the part of speech that denotes action.
I’m taking action, now, to show you the first photographic action I took yesterday.
I’m taking action with these quotes about the verb:
Life on earth is more like a verb. It repairs, maintains, re-creates, and outdoes itself. — Lynn Margulis
I think that we all do heroic things, but hero is not a noun, it’s a verb. — Robert Downey, Jr.
I believe in the verb, not the noun – I am not a writer, but someone compelled to write. — Richard Flanagan

Marriage is not a noun; it’s a verb. It isn’t something you get. It’s something you do. It’s the way you love your partner every day. — Barbara de Angelis
One of the glories of English simplicity is the possibility of using the same word as noun and verb. — Edward Sapir
I think (verb) it’s interesting that most of those quotes relate (verb) to a word’s part of speech — noun or verb?

What action might you take, here and now?
Here’s my final action in this post:
