Just Today

With every rising of the sun,
Think of your life as just begun.
The past has shrived and buried deep
All yesterdays — there let them sleep,
Nor seek to summon back one ghost
Of that innumerable host.
Concern yourself with
just today;
Woo it and teach it to obey
Your wish and will. Since time began,
Today has been the friend of man.

-- Ella Wheeler Wilcox
The title of this page comes from the poem you'll find below
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, one of my favorite poets.  Most of the
quotes on the page came from other favorite poets of mine.

The photos are all from Portugal.

-- Nancy
I am glad that I paid so little attention to good advice;
had I abided by it, I might have avoided some of
my most valuable mistakes.

-- Edna St. Vincent Millay
Never look back unless you're planning to go that way.

-- Henry David Thoreau
It is easy to tell the toiler how best he can carry his pack,
But no one can rate a burden's weight until it has been on his back.

-- Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Why can't somebody give us a list of things that everybody thinks and nobody
and another list of things that everybody says and nobody thinks?

-- Oliver Wendell Holmes
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.

-- Henry David Thoreau
I love humanity, but I'm not so fond of people.

-- Edna St. Vincent Mllay
Make the most of all that comes
and the least of all that goes.

-- Sara Teasdale
Speak clearly, if you speak at all;
carve every word before you let it fall.

--  Oliver Wendell Holmes
