There is a tide in the affairs of men


There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat; And we must take the current when it serves, Or lose our ventures.

Julius Caesar (Act 4, scene iii, 218–224)



William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616 AD)
