Just take it. Do it. Take the next step.

black and white photography, trees, woods, quotes,

“All great masters are chiefly distinguished by the power of adding a second, a third, and perhaps a fourth step in a continuous line. Many a man has taken the first step. With every additional step you enhance immensely the value of your first.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

  2. Love this, David, and it speaks to me very powerfully at the moment. It also brought to mind that famous Adlai Stevenson quote, “The journey of a thousand leagues begins with a single step. So we must never neglect any work of peace within our reach, however small.”.

    If we do not take our first step, how do we expect to get anywhere at all? Neil Armstrong was in fact the first person to take the first step on the moon, but there were many other before him who had to take their first steps, before such a vision was even attainable.
