Around the year with Ella Wheeler Wilcox.. . . We must use
The warp and woof the ready present yields,
And toil while daylight lasts; when I bethink
How brief the past, the future still more brief,
Calls on to action, action! Not for me
Is time for retrospection or for dreams,
Not time for self-laudation or remorse.
