"Until one has committed, there is 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.  That the moment that 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 one's favor all manor of unforseen incidents and meetings and material substances, which no one could have drempt would have come your way.  Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it.  Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
