The road to hell is paved with good intentions, but heaven is full of good works. Those who want, or desire to do good things have no answer to their last judgment when they knew right and wrong but failed to act. Those who did good things in life are rewarded for their efforts. This is a proverb warning us to contribute in life or there are consequences.

Well, don't waste time, give me a sign
