There are a million and one* quotes on the internet about procrastinating (*this is a non-scientific figure), if not more. There was no time to count them all.

In truth, procrastination seems to be a core part of human nature. Philosophers, authors and other notable figures throughout history have directly addressed it. Benjamin Franklin is rumored to have said: “You may delay, but time will not.”
