  • If sleeping, wake — if feasting, rise before

    I turn away. It is the hour of fate,

    And they who follow me reach every state

    Mortals desire, and conquer every foe

    Save death; but those who doubt or hesitate,

    Condemned to failure, penury, and woe,

    Seek me in vain and uselessly implore.

    I answer not, and I return no more!

    - John James Ingalls, 'Opportunity'.
