Aaron Burr Quote
Source/Notes: Letter to Pichon, reported in Marshall Brown, Wit and Humor of Bench and Bar (1899), p. 67.
“There is a maxim, 'Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.' It is a maxim for sluggards. A better reading of it is, 'Never do today what you can as well do tomorrow,' because something may occur to make you regret your premature action.”
