Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Sanskrit Proverb
Look to this day for it is life, 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.
