Text: Henry David Thoreau
Take time by the forelock,
Now or never.
You must live in the present,
Launch yourself on every wave,
Fine your eternity in each moment.
Fools stand on their island opportunities
And look toward another land.
There is no other land;
There is no other life but this,
Or the like of this.
