Reminds me of this rhyme that I remember from Piet Hein's Grooks (please pardon any lapse of precision in memory):

It would greatly ease your plight
While your candle still burns bright.
With hindsight over the past, say, 20 years, the real spine-chiller to me is this: what do we have so good now that we won't recognize until later?
