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