Live all you can — it’s a mistake not to. It doesn’t so much matter what you do in particular, so long as you have your life. If you haven’t had that, what have you had?… What one loses one loses; make no mistake about that…The right time is any time that one is still so lucky as to have…. Live!

Henry James (1843-1916) American writer
The Ambassadors, Book 5, ch. 2 (1903)
