If Tomorrow Never Comes

 

Salah satu prolog dan epilog di serial Grey’s Anatomy.

A couple hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. “Never leave that till tomorrow,” he said “which you can do today”.

He who hesitates is lost.

We can’t pretend we haven’t been told.
We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still, sometimes, we have to see for ourselves.

We have to make our own mistakes.
We have to learn our own lessons.

We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug until we can’t anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying.
