“Henry David Thoreau, a renowned American Renaissance thinker wrote in his journal: ’Nothing must be postponed. Take time by the forelock. Now or never! You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find you eternity in each moment.’ We shouldn’t put anything off but seize the moment, living with our being in the present. If we do that, he says, each moment will become eternity.”
