A Quote by Sol Luckman on self, identity, luke soloman, imagination, future, planning, flux, ego, reality, and other

I had a lot on my mind trying to put together some kind of plan for my wayward self. The future seemed made of matchsticks, fragile as a house of cards. Where would I go now? Who would I be? Would I be me or somebody else?

A Quote by Jerry Porras on journey, success, and planning

For most Builders, the journey is like shooting for the moon and instead hitting Mars—perhaps a better, but different outcome than envisioned. Builders are the first to admit (at least, in private) that planning works, but as the adage goes, the plan itself, rarely does.

A Quote by W.H. Murray on boldness, chance, commitment, creation, decisions, dreams, genius, ideas, ignorance, learning, magic, meetings, planning, power, providence, respect, and truth

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 events, meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would have come their 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, power and magic in it. Begin it now!"
