Outset Quotations

It is good to express a thing twice right at the outset and so to give it a right foot and also a left one. Truth can surely stand on one leg, but with two it will be able to walk and get around.
Friedrich Nietzsche

If all difficulties were known at the outset of a long journey, most of us would never start out at all.
Dan Rather

A fraudulent intent, however carefully concealed at the outset, will generally, in the end, betray itself.
Livy

Through our great good fortune, in our youth our hearts were touched with fire. It was given to us to learn at the outset that life is a profound and passionate thing.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Annie Besant
