ENTERPRISE
[ Also see Ambition Business Effort Endeavor Spirit ]

The method of the enterprising is to plan with audacity and execute with vigor; to sketch out a map of possibilities, and then to treat them as probabilities.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

On the neck of the young man sparkles no gem so gracious as enterprise.
      - Mohammed Shems-ed-Deen Hafiz (pseudonym of Shams-Ed-Dinmuhammad)

What passes in the world for talent or dexterity or enterprise is often only a want of moral principle. We may succeed where others fail, not from a greater share of invention, but from not being nice in the choice of expedients.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

Before thy undertaking of any design, weigh the glory of thy action with the danger of the attempt; if the glory outweigh the danger, it is cowardice to neglect it; if the danger exceed the glory, it is rashness to attempt it; if the balances stand poised, let thy own genius cast them.
      - Francis Quarles

Private enterprise is ceasing to be free enterprise.
      - Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Providence has hidden a charm in difficult undertakings which is appreciated only by those who dare to grapple with them.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

How slow the time
  To the warm soul, that, in the very instant
    It forms, would execute, a great design.
      - James Thomson (1)
