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:
The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one that would otherwise never
have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising
in one’s favor all manners of unforeseen incidents and material assistance,
which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
– William Murray (Member of Scottish expedition to Mount Everest)
