Look to This Day

by Kalidasa (regarded as the greatest Indian poet)

Look to this day!

For it is life, the very life of life.

In this brief course

Lie all the varieties and realities of your existence;

The bliss of growth

The glory of action

The splendor of achievement

For yesterday is but a dream

And tomorrow is only a vision

But today well lived makes every yesterday

A dream of happiness

And tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day!

Such is the salutation to the dawn.
