I used to have reasonable tourist German from my many stays there but, although I could work out the words, I could not work out the meaning of the Goethe quote on Jen's blog. Today I decided to apply my mind to it. The translation programs didn't help me. The quote is: Was immer du tun kannst oder wovon du traeumst - fange es an. I have now worked out that it translates as: Whatever you can do or whatever you dream, begin it.
That's not usually my problem. I begin lots of things that I can do and lots of things that I dream of being able to do. My problem is finishing the projects once started.
