"Start it; you don't have to be fancy. Keep moving; you don't have to go crazy. Visualize; you don't have to admit it. See the end result; it doesn't have to be material.

"To straighten the crooked, you must first do a harder thing — straighten yourself." - The Buddha
"If you fell down yesterday, stand up today." - H.G. Wells
