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 definitely commits oneself
then providence moves to.
All sorts of things occur to help one that
would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decisions,
raising in ones favour all manner of  unforeseen incidents
and meetings and material assistance,
which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.
I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets:
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
W.H. Murray (mountaineer)

Hugs, Allan
