It’s an old English adage dating back to the 1500’s, and we still hear it and say it today. Clear proof the message has staying power!

There’s no time like the present.

It’s meant to encourage someone to take action. Wise words will do that. You hear the wisdom, you recognize the merit, you do what you need to do.

Sometimes  you need more than that. Particularly with the big decisions. Education is not to be taken lightly, and wise words alone won’t always move you.
