Now, today. Tomorrow, the future.

Now is the accepted time,

not tomorrow,

                                                 not some more convenient season.

It is today that our best work can be done

and not some future day or future year.

It is today that we fit ourselves for the greater usefulness of tomorrow.

Today is the seed time,

                           now are the hours of work,

and

tomorrow comes the harvest and the playtime.”

-W.E.B. Du Bois
