First post! :D

Well, this is my community, so I guess it would be pretty stupid of me to not post anything in it.

Seeing as how this is a "new beginning", I figured that quotes about beginnings would be appropriate to post here.

without further ado:

"A tree that reaches past your embrace, grows from one small seed. A structure over nine stories high, begins with a handful of earth. A journey of a thousand miles, starts with a single step."
- Tao 64.

Do something. Either lead, follow or get out of the way.
- Ted Turner

You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try.
- Beverly Sills

All difficult things have their origin in that which is easy, and great things in that which is small.

All glory comes from daring to begin.
-Eugene F. Ware

All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.
-Albert Camus

Almost everything comes from nothing.
-Henry F. Amiel

The beginning is the most important part of any work, especially in the case of a young and tender thing; for that is the time at which the character is being formed and the desired impression more readily taken.
-Plato (The Republic)

Do not despise the bottom rungs in the ascent to greatness.
-Publilius Syrus

Don't be afraid if things seem difficult in the beginning. That's only the initial impression. The important thing is not to retreat; you have to master yourself.
-Olga Korbut

Each day the world is born anew for him who takes it rightly.
-James Russell Lowell

Know ye not, each thing we prize does come from small beginnings rise?
-Mary Ann Lamb

Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
-St. Francis of Assisi

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

When there is a start to be made, don't step over! Start where you are.
-Edgar Cayce

You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
-Joe Sabah
-Eugene F. Ware
