Success comes from taking the initiative and following up... persisting... eloquently expressing the depth of your love. What simple action could you take today to produce a new momentum toward success in your life?
Tony Robbins

When you're that successful, things have a momentum, and at a certain point you can't really tell whether you have created the momentum or it's creating you.
Annie Lennox

I think what gets a poem going is an initiating line. Sometimes a first line will occur, and it goes nowhere; but other times - and this, I think, is a sense you develop - I can tell that the line wants to continue. If it does, I can feel a sense of momentum - the poem finds a reason for continuing.

Billy Collins is right - I have some first lines waiting to take a direction, and maybe it will come and maybe they have settled to be a fist line forever :o)

I agree with the Lennox quote. First you push and then it pulls and finally you are in agreement.

I find " momentum" interesting. I wonder where it comes from? Especially in sports and particularly in team sports.
