Begin It

Composed by Venice Manley, based on quote from Goethe -- Performed by Gretchen Sleicher


Whatever you can do or dream you can

Begin it, just begin it.

Boldness has genius,

Power and magic in it.

Boldness has genius,

Power and magic in it.


This three-part round calls us forth to commit to our dreams and just Begin It! Words by Goethe. Full quote: “Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back — concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. 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 man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.“
