‘Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative, there is one elementary truth, ignorance of which kills countless ideas and endless plans: the moment you definitely commit yourself, then Providence moves. All sorts of things occur that would never otherwise have occurred.

A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in your favor all manner of unseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which you could never have dreamed would come your way. Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, magic to it.’
