"Nothing is worth more than this day." - Goethe

From The Maxims and Reflections

This is it, isn't it? When presented with the uncertainty of life and the inevitability of time, what can one do but embrace this moment? The 17th century poet Robert Herrick reminded us to "gather ye rosebuds while ye may." In our own century, we have Drake to thank for popularizing the  acronym YOLO.  The advice is the same, but the ubiquitous nature of it makes it easy to ignore.

Here, we've illustrated a thin timeline across a pair of dark doors, the past and future, leaving a sliver of light to illuminate these words of wisdom and remind us to value the only thing we truly have: now.
