Today is life-

Today, I want to share a sanskrit proverb by Kalidasa, and Indian poet and playwright from Fifth century A.D.  This can also be found in the beginning of the Twenty-Four Hours a Day book:

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.
