Lose this day loitering, 'twill be the same story

Tomorrow, and the next more dilatory.

The 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!

Boldness has genius, power, and virtue in it!

Only engage, and then the mind grows heated;

Begin it, and the work will be completed.
