However it is early in the morning, and I am reminded of this passage from Plutarch - telling the story of how the seer warned Cesar about the ides of march:
6 and when the day had come and Caesar was on his way to the senate-house, he greeted the seer with a jest and said: "Well, the Ides of March are come," and the seer said to him softly: "Ay, they are come, but they are not gone."
or in the more famous Shakespearean version:
CAESAR[to the Soothsayer] The ides of March are come.Soothsayer : Ay, Caesar; but not gone.
