    I shall pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

    Who could argue with those sentiments ?, but forgive me if I add to that my own life-long favourite, namely:

    If I am not for myself, then who will be for me?
    And if I am only for myself, what am I?
    And if not now, when?
    Rabbi Hillel, circa 30 BCE
