Happy Monday Quotes #20: Beginnings

Because the beginnings of almost all new things can be delicious, messy, surprising, challenging (in the best way) and full of mistakes and enlightening moments from which to learn and continue to become someone stronger and better, here are some quotes. (I’m going to keep this intro sweetly short!)

 

“It makes me so happy. To be at the beginning again, knowing almost nothing…. A door like this has cracked open five or six times since we got up on our hind legs. It’s the best possible time of being alive, when almost everything you thought you knew is wrong.” — Tom Stoppard (from Arcadia)

 

“Begin, be bold, and venture to be wise.” — Horace

 

“…you want the sweetness of our beginning without the bitterness of our struggle — what are you asking — do you want light without shadow? …” — John Geddes (from A Familiar Rain)

 

“And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.” — Meister Eckhart
