Conduct is action shaped toward some result.

By “practical” I mean apt to affect conduct; and by conduct, voluntary action that is self-controlled, i.e. controlled by adequate deliberation.

1909 | Letters to William James | CP 8.315

By “conduct” I mean action under an intention of self-control.

nd | Fragments [R] | MS [R] 839

conduct is not mere action; it is rather action so far as it seeks one ultimate result as desirable and shun[s] another [as] undesirable.
