Until One is Committed… by Goethe

Until One is Committed… by Goethe

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;
The moment one definitely commits oneself then providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help that would never otherwise have occurred.A whole stream of events issues from the decision,
Raising to one’s favour all manner of unforseen accidents and meetings and material assistance
Which no man could have dreamed would come his way.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
