When you have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if you only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself.
Isak Dinesen [Karen Blixen]
He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.

General W.J. Slim

Harry Emerson Fosdick
The power of a movement lies in the fact that it can indeed change the habits of people. This change is not the result of force but of dedication, of moral persuasion.
