Three seconds and the whole of life

This is a familiar feeling :)

"Three seconds before the arrival of J. B. Hobson's letter, I no more dreamed of chasing the unicorn than of trying for the Northwest Passage. Three seconds after reading this letter from the honorable Secretary of the Navy, I understood at last that my true vocation, my sole purpose in life, was to hunt down this disturbing monster and rid the world of it." Opening of chapter 3 in 20,000 Leagues Under the Seas
