Serendipity


"Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and spendid plans: That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur that would never otherwise have occured. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no (human) could have dreamed would come his way." - Goethe
