We draw inspiration from the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson:
every 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 is a new day;
Begin it well and serenely
And with too high a spirit
To be cumbered with
Your old nonsense.
This day is all that is
Good and fair.
It is too dear,
With its hopes and invitations,
To waste a moment on yesterdays.
