No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy today, mix good cheer with friends today enjoy it and bless God for it.
Henry Ward Beecher
Rome wasn’t built in a day.
The feeling of Sunday is the same everywhere, heavy, melancholy, standing still. Like when they say, “As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.”
It is true that every day has its own evil, and its good too. But how difficult must life be, especially farther on when the evil of each day increases as far as worldly things go, if it is not strengthened and comforted by faith. And in Christ all worldly things may become better, and, as it were, sanctified. Theo, woe is me if I do not preach the Gospel; if I did not aim at that and possess faith and hope in Christ, it would be bad for me indeed, but no I have some courage.
Vincent van Gogh
I want to be able, as days go by, always to look myself straight in the eye.
Sweet spring, full of sweet days and roses, A box where sweets compacted lie.
Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of.
“Old times” never come back and I suppose it’s just as well. What comes back is a new morning every day in the year, and that’s better.
George E. Woodberry
I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls off a string.
Midnight brought on the dusky hour Friendliest to sleep and silence.
I’ve been on a diet for two weeks and all I’ve lost is fourteen days.
Now came still Evening on, and Twilight grey Had in her sober livery all things clad.
The candles burn their sockets, The blinds let through the day, The young man feels his pockets And wonders what’s to pay.
A. E. Housman
They (the days) come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent from a distant friendly party; but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it.
School days are the unhappiest in the whole span if human existence. They are full of dull, unintelligible tasks, new and unpleasant ordinances, with brutal violations of common sense and common decency.
Henry Louis Mencken
Our lives are repetitious shams-every single day a simulacrum of the previous day. So for Man, he is out to pepper his daily activities with different things-he’s fighting against boredom.
And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
The Curfew tolls the knell of parting day, The lowing herd winds slowly o’er the lea, The plowman homeward plods his weary way, And leaves the world to darkness and to me.
Under the opening eye-lids of the morn.
The day begins to droop, – Its course is done: But nothing tells the place Of the setting sun.
Where the quiet-coloured end of evening smiles, Miles and miles.
The day Thou gavest, Lord, is ended, The darkness falls at Thy behest.
The day is committed to error and floundering; success and achievement are matters of long range.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I will prepare and some day my chance will come.
Sweet day, so cool, so calm, so bright, The bridal of the earth and sky.
Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.
A bad day never hath a good night.
Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start over again. That’s the way life is, with a new game every day, and that’s the way baseball is.
You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.
Just staying one day ahead of yesterday.
In just two days, tomorrow will be yesterday.
That virgin, vital, beautiful day: today.
Sunday: A day given over by Americans to wishing that they themselves were dead and in Heaven, and that their neighbors were dead and in Hell.
Henry Louis Mencken
Every day should be passed as if it were to be our last.
Now the day is over, Night is drawing nigh, Shadows of the evening Steal across the sky.
Put off for one day and ten days will pass.
Don’t count the days- make the days count.
Every day has been so short, every hour so fleeting, every minute so filled with the life I love that time for me has fled on too swift a wing.
Aga Khan III
Oh, what a beautiful morning! Oh, what a beautiful day!
Every day you spend drifting away from your goals is a waste not only of that day, but also of the additional day it takes to regain lost ground.
A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.
Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.
Charles R. Swindoll
The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.
When I stand before thee at the day’s end, thou shalt see my scars and know that I had my wounds and also my healing.
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
A day may sink or save a realm.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Someday is not a day of the week.
Three o’clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do.
When a day that you happen to know is Wednesday starts off sounding like Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere.
These are not dark days: these are great days – the greatest days our country has ever lived.
Awake! for Morning in the Bowl of Night Has flung the Stone that puts the Stars to Flight: And Lo! the Hunter of the East has caught The Sultan’s Turret in a Noose of Light.
Nirvana is not the blowing out of the candle. It is the extinguishing of the flame because day is come.
