Genius, Power, and Magic

I've heard bits and pieces of this awesome quote but have never had a face or name to go with it..

So here he is!!
The very dashing, fluffy-collared German Philosopher, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)..

And his words which have become known as simply
"Where commitment leads, providence follows":

"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 incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would come his way.

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

Inspired yet?? :)
