To what profit we could use the time for our present task that we
spend in impatient waiting and wondering over the future! So often
the future is just one step up from the present, but some of us miss
it by preferring to wait for an elevator.
--M. B. S.
Prepare to live by all means, but for heaven's sake do not forget to
live. You will never have a better chance than you have at present.
You may think you will have, but you are mistaken.
