Quotable Quotes: New Beginnings

by Miki Saxon

www.flickr.com/photos/foxtongue/2664334801/It’s spring, although you wouldn’t know it here in the Pacific Northwest, but most parts of the country seem luckier. Spring is considered a time of new beginnings, which are especially noticeable in the garden. But, actually, spring is any time you want; new beginnings are a state of mind.

Maria Robinson didn’t believe in new beginnings, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

Centuries before Maria shared her insight the Roman philosopher Seneca said something similar, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”

W. Clement Stone provides a concise explanation of what prevents new beginnings, “So many fail because they don’t get started – they don’t go. They don’t overcome inertia. They don’t begin.”

Theodore Roosevelt tells us to just get on with it, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

The always savvy Anonymous reminds us, “Yesterday’s failures are today’s seeds that must be diligently planted to be able to abundantly harvest tomorrow’s success.”

G.R.Blair offers some wise words to keep your new beginnings on track, “Long-term planning is not about making long-term decisions, it is about understanding the future consequences of today’s decisions.”

But it is the brilliant Mary Shelley who serves up the five words you should repeat every morning when you wake, “The beginning is always today.”
