“Look to this day
For it is life.
The very life of life
In its brief course lie all
The realities and verities of existence –
The bliss of growth,
The splendor of action,
The glory of power –
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well-lived
Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.”
~ Sanskrit proverb by Kalidasa, Indian poet
