The only joy in the world is to begin
It is easier to resist at the beginning than at the end
Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning
The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step
Begin - to begin is half the work, let half still remain; again begin this, and thou wilt have finished
Take care not to begin anything of which you may repent
The first step, my son, which one makes in the world, is the one on which depends the rest of our days
He that rises late must trot all day
Still thou knowest that in the ardor of pursuit men lose sight of the goal from which they start
The beginnings of all things are small

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
