Time's a-wastin': When you have a big important job of a lifetime waiting to do, get right on it. Hear W. Somerset Maugham:
In youth the years stretch before one so long that it is hard to realize that they will ever pass, and even in middle age, with the ordinary expectations of life in these days, it is easy to find excuses for delaying what one would like to do but does not want to; but at last a time comes when death must be considered. . . . I have long thought that it would exasperate me to die before I have written this book and so it seemed to me that I had better set about it at once. When I have finished it I can face the future with serenity for I shall have rounded off my life’s work.
(Quoted from page 8 of The Summing Up, by W. Somerset Maugham. The Literary Guild of America, 1938.)
