Every moment is a fresh beginning.

T. S. ELIOT, The Cocktail Party

Begin at the beginning ... and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

There is first of all the problem of the opening, namely, how to get us from where we are, which is, as yet, nowhere, to the far bank. It is a simple bridging problem, a problem of knocking together a bridge. People solve such problems every day. They solve them, and having solved them push on.

J. M. COETZEE, Elizabeth Costello
