“…We Have A Task Before Us Which Must Be Speedily Performed. We Know That It Will Be Ruinous To Make Delay. …” — EDGAR ALLAN POE (“The Imp Of The Perverse” (1845))

“…The Most Important Crisis Of Our Life Calls…

…Trumpet-Tongued…

…For IMMEDIATE Energy AND Action.

We Glow…

…We Are Consumed With Eagerness To Commence The Work…

…With The Anticipation Of Whose Glorious Result Our Whole Souls Are On Fire.

It MUST…

…It SHALL Be Undertaken Today…

…And Yet We Put It Off Until Tomorrow…

…And Why?

There Is No Answer…

…Except That We Feel PERVERSE…

…Using The Word With No Comprehension Of The Principle. …”
