seize the day...

[Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero.]
Seize the day, put no trust in the morrow!

the first time aku dengar quotation dari bahasa Latin ini adalah dalam filem Dead Poets' Society: CARPE DIEM. "Seize the day!"...dimana Robin Williams menasihatkan studentsnya supaya mengambil segala peluang yang ada pada waktu itu juga...

benar juga...kenapa kita selalu bertangguh...

Carpe Diem! Seize this moment of the sunrise and sunset, for tomorrow there may not be another moment to seize.

The point is :

jika mahu katakan sesuatu, katakan
jika mahu lakukan sesuatu, lakukan
jika mahu dapatkan sesuatu, dapatkan
sebelum terlambat dan kita menyesalinya sepanjang hidup

aku letakkan beberapa quotations yang relevan dengan idea 'seize the day'

Whether it's the best of times or the worst of times, it's the only time we've got. ~Art Buchwald

If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting?
~Stephen Levine

The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and for deeds left undone.
~Harriet Beecher Stowe

Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.
~Sydney J. Harris

Present your family and friends with their eulogies now - they won't be able to hear how much you love them and appreciate them from inside the coffin. ~Anonymous

Tis better to buy a small bouquet and give to your friends this very day
than a bushel of roses white and red, to lay on his coffin after he's dead

aku...seize the day...kerana esok mungkin sudah terlambat...
