Have no fear of perfection you will never reach it. We can try to avoid making choices by doing nothing, but even that is a decision. Nothing is so exhausting as indecision, and nothing is so futile. Begin to be now what you will be hereafter. One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man. Though no one can go back and make a new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new end. Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

One cannot govern with buts. Begin difficult things while they are easy. A thousand-mile journey begins with one step. Do or do not. There is no try. We achieve a sense of self from what we do for ourselves and how we develop our capacities. If all your efforts have gone into developing others, you are bound to feel empty. TAKE YOUR TURN NOW. To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing. Nothing comes from doing nothing. If you are not fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm.
