“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness, concerning all acts of initiative and creation.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision.”  –JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE
