If time be of all things the most precious, wasting time must be the greatest prodigality, since lost time is never found again; and what we call time enough always proves little enough. Let us then be up and doing, and doing to the purpose; so by diligence shall we do more with less perplexity.

          If thou art far, the bird's tunes are no tunes;
            If thou art near, the wintry days are Junes.
