“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you, savor you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may, for it will not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky, and want more than all the world for your return.” ~ Mary Jean Irion ~
“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I am going to be happy in it.” ~ Groucho Marx ~
“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” ~ Steve Jobs ~
“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a
long time ago.” ~ Warren Buffet ~
“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its
strength.” ~ Corrie ten Boom ~
“I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday. “

“Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today.” ~ Mark Twain ~
