Inspiring Words from Goethe

4 Nov

I found this excerpt from Miereille Guiliano’s (Author of Women, Work and the Art of Savoir Faire) recommended reading list and just had to share:

Until one is 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 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 manner of unforeseen events, meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would have come their way.

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I couldn’t love this quote more. Happy early Friday everyone! Hope your weekends are full of bold, powerful steps toward your dreams!

    Love it too. And it reminds me of a quote i just saw on another blog “Failure is Good.” It may hurt in the short run but there’s nothing quite like learning from failure.
