Letter to Mary-Elizabeth, via Ralph Waldo Emerson

Finish 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
It is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waist a moment on yesterdays.

How can we not love this advice.
