An idea is a feat of association, and the height of it is a good metaphor.

If you’re ever...

If you’re ever going to do the things you wish to do, now is the time to start. If you’re ever going to become the person you know you can become, now is the time to do it. If you’re ever going to fulfill the great and wonderful possibilities that are surely yours, now is the moment to begin in earnest.

A full and rich life is yours for the making, but it won’t just be handed to you, no matter who you are. Your life, your fulfillment, requires your active and committed participation. And now is the time for that to happen. The past is long gone and the future is yet unavailable to you. Now is when you can make a difference.

What are your dreams, your hopes, your ambitions? Now is the time to follow them with the passion that you know you have. Now is the time for action, for commitment, for purpose. Putting it off until later will only cheat you out of what you could have become. Do it, be it, live it now. It’s the grandest opportunity you could ever imagine.

— Ralph Marston
