  4. Seneca, Letters to Lucilius V:

    Fear keeps pace with hope. Nor does their so moving together surprise me; both belong to a mind in suspense, to a mind in a state of anxiety through looking into the future. Both are mainly due to projecting our thoughts far ahead of us instead of adapting ourselves to the present. Thus it is that foresight, the greatest blessing humanity has been given, is transformed into a curse.

  5. RAS CARDO REGGAE:

    **(C)(P)-THE URGENCY OF NOW-SITUATION DICTATES THAT WE ACT WITH DUE DILIGENCE AND COMPETENCE TO GET AND ACHIEVE OUR FOCUSED OBJECTIVES.
