Until one is committed, there is hesitancy,
the chance to draw back, always
ineffectiveness.

Concerning all acts of initiative (and
creation), there is one element of truth, the
ignorance of which kills countless ideas and
splendid plans - that moment one commits
oneself, then providence moves all.

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 favour all manner
of unseen incidents and meetings and
material assistance which no man would
have dreamed could have come his way.

Whatever you can do or dream you can,
begin it. Boldness has genius, power and
magic in it.

Begin it now.


Goethe


Congratulations Yasuyo!

I'd like to share my blog with your school community: http://montessori-amman-imman-project.blogspot.com/. Students around the world are partnering with development organization Amman Imman: Water is Life to build "Wells of Love" in the Azawak of West Africa. I invite your school and community to join this global service-learning project.
