Outset Quotations

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

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

At the outset, I want to say that the suggestion that the struggle in South Africa is under the influence of foreigners or communists is wholly incorrect.

Nelson Mandela

President Bush gave me a tremendous opportunity to serve as the vice president. I enjoyed very much having the opportunity to be a part of his team. He told me at the outset, he wanted me to sign on to be a part of his team - and he was true to his word, kept it. He was tough. He was decisive. He was also a pretty good politician.
Dick Cheney

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