One Step

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” is a common saying that originated from a famous Chinese proverb. The quotation is from Chapter 64 of the Tao Te Ching ascribed to Laozi, although it is also erroneously ascribed to his contemporary, Confucius.

It was reintroduced to Americans by John F Kennedy referencing the first nuclear test ban treaty of 1963.
