This post hit me in pieces, first as a one-liner in Seesmic from my friends and then I followed the chain of attribution back to the source, gathering miettes of meaning before aggregating the whole on a blog.
Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your mind. Put your whole soul to it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic,
be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
1803-1882, Essayist, Philosopher and Poet
