   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 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.
   -- "Julius Caesar" Act IV, Scene 3 (William Shakespeare)
