“They say time is the fire in which we burn.”-Delmore Schwartz (December 8 1913 – July 11 1966)
‘The problem we all seem to have is time passing us by, opportunity passing us by. Before we get a chance to hold on to it for long, it is gone. When we see something we like or want, we wait for it to come to us but it never does and then we get hung up on it because we’ll never know what we could have had. You think it is coming over to you but it’s really floating away. The time you think you have it, you really don’t.
You can’t expect things to happen just because you want them to. If you want something, go and get it. Don’t be afraid to take a chance because if you don’t, you’re not going to have what you want anyway.
If you try, you’ll either succeed or fail. If you don’t try, you’ve already failed. When you try, you find out whether or not it was worth it and there is bigger chance you’ll get over it quicker. If you finally succeed and get what you want, don’t take advantage of it because it won’t be there forever and when forever is up, you’ll only have memories to look back on and stories to tell.’
