# Day 91 (A salutation for a new dawn…)


Look to this day: 

For it is life, the very life of life. 

In its brief course 

Lie all the verities and realities of your existence. 

The bliss of growth, 

The glory of action, 

The splendour of achievement 

Are but experiences of time. 


For yesterday is but a dream 

And tomorrow is only a vision; 

And today well-lived, makes 

Yesterday a dream of happiness 

And every tomorrow a vision of hope. 

Look well therefore to this day; 

Such is the salutation to the evernew dawn!

(Poem attributed to the ancient Sanskrit poet Kalidasa)
