The quotes:

The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.
     - Chinese proverb

He who would begun has half done. Dare to be wise; begin.
     - Horace, 65 - 8 BC

All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.
     - Albert Camus, 1913 - 1960

Don't be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin.
     - Grace Hansen

From quiet homes and first beginning,
Out to the undiscovered ends,
There's nothing worth the wear of winning,
But laughter and the love of friends.
     - Hilaire Belloc, 1870 - 1953
