Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

Tomorrow isn’t here

Tomorrow hasn’t happened yet. The things you see today as problems, may look quite different tomorrow. The things you see as certain and secure today, may be gone tomorrow.

It is useless to spend your energy worrying about tomorrow, and to project your problems into the future, when there’s no way you can know what that future will be. And it is dangerous to depend on the future being certain, because it is not.

Every day brings new challenges. Every day brings new opportunities. The best course is to meet the challenges as they come, and make the best of opportunity when it’s here. Tomorrow is a mystery and still beyond our grasp, yet we have a magnificent amount of today that’s ready to be lived.

— Ralph Marston
