"We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today.  We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.  In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late.  Procrastination is still the thief of time. . . .  The ‘tide in the affairs of men’ does not remain at the flood; it ebbs.  We may cry out desperately for time to pause in her passage, but time is deaf to every plea and  rushes on.  Over the bleached bones and jumbled residues of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words: ‘Too late.’  There is an invisible book of life that faithfully records our vigilance or our neglect.  The moving finger writes, and having writ moves on . . . .” 

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
