Premier Pas

Ce n'est que le premier pas qui coûte. Pythagoras used to say, “The beginning is half the whole.”

“Incipe Dimidium facti est coepisse.” —Ausonius,

“Dimidium facti, qui coepit, habet.” —Horace.

“Well begun is half done.”

The reverse of these proverbs is: “Cest le plus difficile que d'écorcher la queue.”
