“Well begun is half done”

A Danish saying I like.
Usually the best and most popular sayings are international, but it seems this is just Danish, so I want to spread it around.

“Well begun is half done”

Silly me, I didn't even think to google it before posting it. It turns out that it is already a known saying in English too. But at least I can take pride in that I translated it from Danish to the the exact same expression and words in English.  :-)

In Afrikaans (from Dutch): "Goed begonne is half gewonne".

This is similar to another popular, but more negative in perspective idiom: The first step is always the hardest.

In Italian "Chi ben comincia è alla metà dell'opera". "Who begins well, is halfway through the work".
