goethe

Today’s inspiration comes from Goethe and deservedly ranks as one of the best inspirational quotes of all time.  It is so well stated that I have little to add to it today:

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.

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 him.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance,

which no man could have dreamed would have come this way.

Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it.

Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

Begin It Now.

Goethe

To be thorough, it appears that part of this quote is not a direct statement from Goethe: it is a paraphrase.  If you want to know more, check out this link.
