"At that moment, circumstance and the universe got in a huddle and started to conspire"

This sentence is inspired by Johann Wolfgang Goethe (1749-1832) from his poem Begin It Now:

That the moment one definitely commits oneself/ then Providence moves too./ All sorts of things occur to help one/ That would never otherwise have occurred./ A whole stream of events issues from the decision/ raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen/ incidents and meetings and material assistance/ which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
