I thought Look before you leap went with Who Hesitates is Lost, but it can go well with the stitch in time too, love them proverbs. Or whatever they are.

Reminds me of a (thread creep) old Asimov, I think, short story where a Mr. Stein gets around the statute of limitations by walking into a time machine and coming right out again after the statute expired.
