Now

Why wilt thou defer thy good purpose from day to day? 
ARISE! and beginin this very instant, and say 
Now is the time to be doing; 
Now is the time to be striving; 
Now is the fit time to amend myself! 
Unless thou dost earnestly force thyself,
thou shalt never get the victory over sin.
(Thomas a Kempis, born in 1379 or 1380; died 25 July, 1471.)
