“There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune.
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in the shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat.
And we must take the current when it serves
Or lose our ventures.”

-William Shakespeare (Julius Caesar, Act IV Scene III)
