  1. "Well begun is half done" is actually an ancient Greek proverb:

    "The mistake lies in the beginning — as the proverb says — 'Well begun is half done'; so an error at the beginning, though quite small, bears the same ratio to the errors in the other parts." --Aristotle, _Politics_, Book V, Chapter 4, Bekker # 1303b29 (Translator: Benjamin Jowett)
