Title: Tide Taken at the Flood
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood,
Leads on to Fortune.
All the voyages of our lives,
Are bound in shallows and misery.
On such a sea,
Are we now afloat
And we must take the current where it serves,
Else lose our Venture.
Brutus to Cassius, Masala and Lucillus
Julius Caesar, Act IV, Scene III
