Begin, Commit

“Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace, and power in it.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust

“Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.”
– William Hutchison Murray, The Scottish Himalayan Expedition
