[ Also see Delay Hesitation Leisure Neglect Sloth Time Tomorrow Waiting ]

God has promised forgiveness to your repentance; but He has not promised to-morrow to your procrastination.
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

When things are come to the execution, there is no secrecy comparable to celerity.
      - Francis Bacon

Indulge in procrastination, and in time you will come to this, that because a thing ought to be done, therefore you can't do it.
      - Charles Buxton

By the streets of "By and By" one arrives at the house of "Never."
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)

Faith in to-morrow, instead of Christ, is Satan's nurse for man's perdition.
      - George B. Cheever

A perfect method for adding drama to life is to wait until the looms large.
      - Alyce P. Comyn-Selby,
        Procrastinator's Success Kit

There is no moment like the present; not only so, but, moreover, there is no moment at all,--that is, no instant force and energy, but in the present. The man who will not execute his resolutions when they are fresh upon him can have no hope from them afterwards.
      - Maria Edgeworth

Postpone not your life.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

You may delay, but time will not.
      - Benjamin Franklin

I leave a great deal to "unfinished business!"
      - Robert Lee Frost

Our good purposes foreslowed are become our tormentors upon our deathbed.
      - Joseph Hall

To procrastinate seems inherent in man, for if you do to-day that you may enjoy to-morrow it is but deferring the enjoyment; so that to be idle or industrious, vicious or virtuous, is but with a view of procrastinating the one or the other.
      - Benjamin Robert Haydon

The man who procrastinates struggles with ruin.
      - Hesiod

Seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow.
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus)

Whatever things injure your eye you are anxious to remove; but things which affect your mind you defer.
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus)

Procrastination is the kidnapper of souls and the recruiting-officer of hell.
      - Edward Irving

He who waits to do a great deal of good at once, will never do anything.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

By one delay after another they spin out their whole lives, till there's no more future left for them.
      - Sir Roger L'Estrange

Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.
      - Abraham Lincoln

To be always intending to make a new and better life but never to find time to set about it is as to put off eating and drinking and sleeping from one day to the next until you're dead.
      - Og Mandino (Augustine A. Mandino)

There are so many things that we wish we had done yesterday, so few that we feel like doing today.
      - Mignon McLaughlin

Procrastination has been called a thief,--the thief of time. I wish it were no worse than a thief. It is a murderer; and that which it kills is not time merely, but the immortal soul.
      - William Nevins

For Yesterday was once To-morrow.
      - Persius (Aulus Persius Flaccus)

Now or never.
  [Lat., Nunc aut nunquam.]
      - Proverb

We pass our life in deliberation, and we die upon it.
      - Pasquier Quesnel
