Inscribed: '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.' (Julius Caesar, Act IV). / 'With wind and tide favorable at the same time, the signal being given and the anchor weighed, he advanced about seven miles' Caesar's commentaries, Book IV,Chapter XXIII'. Signed by artist.
