Everybody knows that. We need no one to tell it to us, yet in another way perhaps we do always need to be told, because there is always the temptation to believe that we have all the time in the world, whereas the truth of it is that we do not. We have only a life, and the choice of how we are going to live it must be our own choice, not one that we let the world make for us.
~Frederick Buechner, Listening to Your Life
