Lose the day loitering,’twill be the same story tomorrow,
And the next more dilatory, for indecision brings its own delays,
And days are lost lamenting o’er lost days.
Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute!
What you can do, or think you can, Begin it!
Only engage, and then the mind grows heated;
Begin it, and the work will be completed.

~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

One thought on “”

  1. Full many a gem of purest ray serene
    The dark unfathom’d caves of ocean bear:
    Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
    And waste its sweetness on the desert air.
