The Salutation of the Dawn
Listen to the exhortation of the dawn
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lies all the
Verities and realities of your existence.
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendor of beauty
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!
Such is the salutation of the dawn.

Translated from Sanskrit
