"...Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to drawback. Concerning all acts of initiative......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. A whole stream of the events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever that you can do, or dreamed you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now..."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe as quoted by William H. Murray, The Scottish Himalayan Expedition (1951), in Karlson Hargroves et al, 2005
