Lose this day loitering-'twill be the same story
To-morrow-and the next more dilatory;
Each indecision brings its own delays,
And days are lost lamenting o'er lost days.
Are you in earnest? seize this very minute-
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
Only engage, and then the mind grows heated-
Begin it, and then the work will be completed!

                     -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Begin it...that's the hardest part!


  1. This is one of my favorite quotes! I need to print it out and post it somewhere so that I can look at it more often!


Thanks for your comment!
