Salutation To The Dawn


IMG_1980IMG_1988

“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 Beauty.

For Yesterday is but a Dream,
and Tomorrow only a Vision;
But Today well lived makes Yesterday a Dream of Happiness
and Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the Salutation to the Dawn.”
