It is difficult to know at what moment love begins; it is less difficult to know that it has begun.
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I have twenty-one pages, unusable, unprintable, destructive of the book as my mind still partly sees it, contradictory of character and inconsistent in tone. But I am undoubtedly started.
In the beginning there was nothing. God said, 'Let there be light!' And there was light. There was still nothing, but you could see it a whole lot better.
Endings are not always bad. Most times they're just beginnings in disguise.
—Kim Harrison in Something Deadly This Way Comes
There will come a time when you believe everything is finished; that will be the beginning.
—Louis L'Amour in Lonely on the Mountain
I do not know the end of my living and the beginning of my dying, for they — living and dying — are both mixed up.
