Benediction

Finish this day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt have crept in; forget them as soon as you can.

Tomorrow will be a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

What lies behind you and what lies before you are tiny matters compared to what lies within you.

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.

Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

For the purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived, and lived well.
