Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, father of biodynamic farming, color theory, ecological system thinking, and morphology; author of the seminal dramatic play “Faust” wrote:
“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 which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
the moment that one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help 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 one could have dreamt
Would have come your 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 (1749-1832) German poet, playwright, novelist, scientist, statesman, theatre director, critic, artist, free-thinker.
