 They live laboriously, in order that they may live better; they fit themselves out for life at the expense of life itself, and cast their thoughts a long way forwards: yet postponement is the greatest waste of life: it wrings day after day from us, and takes away the present by promising something hereafter: there is not such obstacle to true living as waiting, which loses to-day while it depends on the morrow.

-Lucius Annaeus Seneca, On the Shortness of Life
