C.S. Lewis

If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavorable. Favorable conditions never come.

--C. S. Lewis, "Learning in War-Time", The Weight of Glory
