Quotations About Today

Often do the spirits of great events often stride on before the event, and in today, already walks tomorrow. ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

Do not let idleness deceive you. For while you give him today, he steals tomorrow from you. ~ A. F. Forester

Talk less of days to come,
Live, love, labor more today.
~ Alice Cary

One today is worth two tomorrows. ~ Benjamin Franklin

 

God sets some souls in shade alone;
They have no daylight of their own:
They live their lives in happier ones
They see the shine of distant suns.

God knows. Content thee with thy night.
Thy greater heaven hath grander light.
Today is close, the hours are small;
Thou sitt'st afar and hast them all.
Lose the less joy that doth but blind,
Reach forth a larger bliss to find.
Today is brief, the inclusive spheres,
Rain raptures of a thousand years.
~ Adeline D. T. Whitney

Time is of no account with great thoughts, which are as fresh today as when they first past through their author's minds years ago. ~ Samuel Smiles

Gather the roses while the bloom is still on them; for tomorrow is not today. ~ Gleim, German Poet

Better have an egg today than a hen tomorrow. ~ Italian Proverb

One today is worth two tomorrows. ~ German Proverb

Use not today what tomorrow may want. ~ Ancient Brahmin Proverb

Today
We dream bright dreams of tomorrow;
Our castles are built in the air;
And with hues sublime, of the coming time,
We paint us a picture fair.
But we never stop to consider
That the future flees away,
And that there is naught into being wrought
Unless it is wrought today.
To the cherished haunts of the old tune
Our eyes are backward cast,
And a sweet voice calls through memory's halls,
To woo us unto the past.
But however dear are the visions,
We do not dare to stay.
From out of the gone, we must yet move or
To the duties' call today.
We've the "now" in which to labor;
We've the "now" in which to be!
And the "now" alone we call our own
Through all eternity.
The past and the future are shadows,
But the present is ours for aye.
To us 'tis given to build our heaven
In the kingdom of today.
~ J. A. Edgerton

  The longest day soon comes to an end. ~ Pliny the Younger
