Carved on the bulkhead of Concise 2
There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads 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.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Act 4 scene 3
