Today is the Day

There are many fine things which you mean to do someday, under what you think will be more favorable circumstances. But the only time that is surely yours is the present, hence this is the time to speak the word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous deed, to forgive the fault of a thoughtless friend, to sacrifice self a little more for others. Today is the day in which to express your noblest qualities of mind and heart, to do at least one worthy thing which you have long postponed, and to use your God-given abilities for the enrichment of some less fortunate fellow traveler. Today you can make your life... significant and worth while. The present is yours to do with it as you will. - Grenville Kleiser (1868 - 1935)
The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop -
At late or early hour.
Now is the only time you own;
Live, love, work with a will.
Place no faith in tomorrow, for -
The clock may then be still. - George H. Candler
