Tide in the affairs of men

There is a tide in the affairs of men.

 Which, taken at the flood, leads on 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.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE – Julius Caesar
