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..

- W. Shakespeare
Julius Caesar, IV, iii


Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old time is still a-flying :
And this same flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow will be dying...

Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may go marry :
For having lost but once your prime
You may for ever tarry.

- Robert Herrick

  1. and if you do take the plunge this year (the verses indicate due diligence being applied to a question troubling the heart and mind!), sure do send your co-bloggers an invite. We'll travel on the high-speed optical fibres to see you in bridal softwear :)

  2. LOL I'd like to see the bridal software first! Btw just because there's the word "marry", it doesn't in any way indicate I'm planning to take the plunge!

  3. I prefer being semi-private, sorry Illu...fame's not my game :)
