Brutus:
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.

-Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV.3

For education … is the mainspring of our economic and social progress … it is the highest expression of achievement in our society, enriching and ennobling human life.

– John F. Kennedy
