Goethe's Couplet

Posted by martin.parnell |

Three months ago my friend Bill sent me this and I've had it pinned to the wall above my desk ever since:

"Until one is committed there is always 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 commits oneself, the Providence moves too.

Multitudes of things occur to help that which otherwise could never occur. A stream of events arises from the decision rising to one's favour all manner of unforeseen accidents, meeting and material assistance, which no one could have dreamed, would come their way.

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