  1. Yet another quote, a little longer:

    Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (& creation), there is one elementary truth—ignorance of which kills countless ideas & splendid plans: That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves, too.

    All sorts of things occur to help that would never have otherwise occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents & meetings & material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would come his way.

    Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and imagination in it. Begin it now.

    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 1749-1832
