Seize This Very Minute!

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Lose this day loitering,
Twill be the same story
Tomorrow — and the next more dilatory.
Then indecision brings its own delays,
and days are lost lamenting over days!
Are you in earnest?  Seize this very minute!
What you can do, or dream you can –begin it!
Courage has genius, power, and magic in it.
Only engage, and then the mind grows heated.
Begin it, and the work will be completed.
 –Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
