Your August 28th quote is erroneously attributed. The following should clarify:

Until one is committed there is 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 not 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 would have dreamed would come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it! Boldness has genius, magic, and power in it. W.H. Murray from The Scottish Himalayan Expedition and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. ~ Phil

Re. your quote which is one of my favorites..."Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort..." which you attribute to George Eliot as many others also do, it was actually written by Dinah Mulock Craik. See this site. ~ V.

Thank you, Daily Celebrations and Happy Anniversary. Your message is very timely for me as I found myself in a situation where I was clearly out of step and just couldn't help it! Made what I hoped was a graceful exit having stated my difference of opinion and came home to find your message awaiting me----so thank you again. Kind Regards, Meg

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy Daily Celebrations. I am also a cancer survivor, 4 years now. Had to retire. Got interested in quotes and wanted to see them by an author's birthday. Am making my own compilation. Thanks so much for your site. Don't know how you could get so much information. ~ Betty
