"Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do."
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Addendum (April 28, 2008): When I found this quote, I was delighted, because it reflected what my mother used to say, "Don't plan...do!" Now I wonder if this was her source, but I never forgot the words of wisdom it imparted to me, and I still hear it resonating in the caverns of my memory. It wisely reminds me that there is a limit to what we can plan without action. Sometimes we just need to take the plunge and get dirty and just do it.
I have to remember that more often.
