Taken at the Flood

"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.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures."
William Shakespeare
Julius Caesar (IV.ii.269–276)

"This photo illustration, created by John Blackford and Cameron Davidson for Vanity Fair, shows what Manhattan might look like if global warming continued until polar ice caps melted."
