Fav Quote Friday: Could Scottish Author Have Been The First 'New-Age' Guru?

"...the moment one definitely commits oneself,
then providence moves too.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision,
raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen
incidents, meetings and material assistance,
which no man could have dreamt would have come his way."
~ William Hutchinson Murray (Scottish Author, Mountaineer, 1913-1996)*

Murray believed in the unseen forces that help us,
but he also knew that it was our committment to
our intentions are what make it happen;
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy,
the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation),
there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which 
kills countless ideas and splendid plans..."
