Be careful with this day


Because it is the life

The true life of life

Be careful with this day


In its short duration

all truth and all reality rests on your existence :


The salvation of growing,

the fame of the act,

the glory of the achievement.


Because yesterday is only a dream

and tomorrow only a vision.


But today well lived…

Each yesterday becomes a dream of luck

and each tomorrow a vision of hope


therefore be careful with this day


That is your greeting to each new sun.

Kalidasa, Indian dramatist 5th century
