Quotes to live by...

I love the following quote written by William Shakespeare in Julius Caesar Act IV Scene III:

There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.

I read this quote a few years ago in a book in which it was used to describe the decision making process. Whenever I have been faced with difficult choices, most recently when I had to decide whether or not to relocate 1000 miles across the country, this quote comes to mind.

So far, using the quote to make decisions is working out pretty well for me. I went on to complete another degree and I moved to Maryland where I'm very happy.
