Ovid, Remedies of Love 91-92 (tr. J.H. Mozley, rev. G.P. Goold):
Resist beginnings; too late is the medicine prepared,
when the disease has gained strength by long delay.

principiis obsta; sero medicina paratur,
   cum mala per longas convaluere moras.
Id., 101-102:
I have seen a wound, that at first was healable,
by tarrying suffer the penalty of long delay.

vidi ego, quod fuerat primo sanabile, vulnus
   dilatum longae damna tulisse morae.
