If we are facing in the right direction,
all we have to do is keep on walking –(Buddhist Proverb)

You’ve got to do your own growing,
no matter how tall your grandfather was. –Irish Proverb


Look to this day,
The very life of life,
In its brief course lies all
The realities and varieties of existence,
The bliss of growth,
The splendour 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.
