Ripeness is All


Shakespeare in "King Lear" captured this simple and profound truth: Ripeness is all! So many events are affected by the right timing. Take buying real estate for one example. Another example, meeting the person you might marry or have a LTR. When events are not right the possibility evaporates. Timing is critical.

King Lear:

EDGAR
Away, old man; give me thy hand; away!
King Lear hath lost, he and his daughter ta'en:
Give me thy hand; come on.

GLOUCESTER
No farther, sir; a man may rot even here.

EDGAR
What, in ill thoughts again? Men must endure
Their going hence, even as their coming hither;
Ripeness is all: come on.

GLOUCESTER
And that's true too
