Procrastination -

Never put off until tomorrow what you can put off indefinitely.

The hardest work in the world is that which should have been done yesterday.

Someday is not a day of the week.

We don't have anything as urgent as manyana in Ireland --Stuart Banks

They said procrastination was
The source of all my sorrow
I don't know what that big word means --
I'll look it up tomorrow
Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

Defer not till to-morrow to be wise,
To-morrow's sun to thee may never rise.
William Congreve. 1670-1729. Letter to Cobham.
As he that lives longest lives but a little while, every man may be certain that he has no time to waste. The duties of life are commensurate to its duration, and every day brings its task, which if neglected, is doubled on the morrow. But he that has already trifled away those months and years, in which he should have laboured, must remember that he has now only a part of that of which the whole is little; and that since the few moments remaining are to be considered as the last trust of heaven, not one is to be lost. -- Samuel Johnson, Rambler #71

Procrastination: Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now. -- Larry Kersten

To-morrow is the day when idlers work, and fools reform, and mortal men lay hold on heaven. --Persius

No problem is too big it can't be run away from. Linus

While we are postponing, life speeds by. Seneca (B.C. 3-65 A.D.)

Procrastination is the thief of time:
Year after year it steals, till all are fled,
And to the mercies of a moment leaves
The vast concerns of an eternal scene.
Young (1683-1765)
