Another proverb tells us that Fortune knocks at least once at every man’s gate, but that does not necessarily mean that it will knock a second time, so when an opportunity to do a thing on which you have set your heart does suddenly arise you should take full advantage of it, for you may never get another chance.
- Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
- He that will not when he may, when he will he shall have nay
- He who hesitates is lost
- Hoist your sail when the wind is fair
- Life is short and time is swift
- Make hay while the sun shines
- Strike while the iron is hot
- There is a tide in the affairs of men ...
- Time and tide wait for no man
