Look to this day
from the Sanskrit (Hindu and Buddhist text)
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the varieties and realities of your existence:
the bliss of growth,
the glory of action,
the splendour of beauty.
For yesterday is already 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!
Such is the salutation of the dawn.
