Finish Each Day …

Posted in odds and ends, Philosophy, quote(s) with tags , , on May 6, 2010 by Tim R Wilson

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

glory of friendship

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with friendship.”

Finish every day and be done with it.

 

You have done what you could.  Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.

Tomorrow is a new day; being it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

 

This day is all that is good and fair.

It is too dear with it’s hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays.”
