"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back-- Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that 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 events issues from the decision, raising in on'es favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would come his way. Whatever you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now."
- John Anster, (in a very free translation of Faust, from 1835.)
"The problem is not the problem; the problem is your attitude about the problem."
- Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean)
"The obstacle is the path."
