“The moods and thoughts of man are revolving just as steadily and incessantly as nature’s. Nothing must be postponed. Take time by the forelock. Now or never! You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in cach moment. Take any other course, and life will be a succession of regrets. There is no world for the penitent and regretful.”

― Henry David Thoreau, The Journal, 1837-1861, p. 563
