Tempus Fugit!

Since the clays that are past are gone ¡or ever, a n d those that are to co m e m ay not com e to thee in thy presen t State of being, it b eh o o v e th th e e , O man! to em p lo y the present State, without regretting the loss of that w hich is p a s t , or too m u ch d ep en d in g on that w hich is to co m e ; for of thy y-iext states thou canst not know except as thy actions now ordain them . T h is instant is thine . . . W h a ts o e v er thou resolvest to do, do it quickly. D efer not till the evening w h a t the m orning m ay accom plish.
