“Most true it is, as a wise man teaches us, that ‘Doubt of any sort cannot be removed except by Action.’ On which ground, too, let him who gropes painfully in darkness or uncertain light, and prays vehemently that the dawn may ripen into day, lay this other precept well to heart, which to me was of invaluable service: ‘Do the Duty which lies nearest thee,’ which thou knowest to be a Duty! Thy second duty will already have become clearer.”
Thomas Carlyle, Sartor Resartus
“He, who every morning plans the transaction of the day, and follows that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through a labyrinth of the most busy life.”
