Dum spiro, spero


Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie 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 To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day 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!
- Kālidāsa

I don't know if every yesterday is a dream of happiness but every Tomorrow is certainly a vision of Hope....

Because I know that the flowers will bloom, the birds will sing... the spring will come AGAIN ...
