Behold this day, because it is life;
The best of life
In its lapse, lay all the realities
And the truth of existence,
The joy of growing,
The grandeur of action,
The glory of power.
Because yesterday is only an commemoration
And tomorrow a vision.
But living good today,
Turns each yesterday into a memory of happiness
And each tomorrow into a vision of hope.
Therefore behold this day carefully.
From the Sanskrit, an unknown writer
