Lest we mistakenly believe that this business of living “in the moment” or pursuing the “carpe diem” imperative is something of a “New Age” construct… Please consider these words from Horace.
"He who postpones the hour of living rightly…
is like the rustic who waits for the river to run out…
before he crosses."
Quintus Horatius Flaccus
(8 Dec 65 BCE to 27 Nov 8 BCE)
