“Until one is committed,
there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back,
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 incidents and meetings And material assistance,
Which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it”
-W.H. Murray, from The Scottish Himalayan Expedition
