My Favorite Quote

My favorite quote is from a text written by the Sanskrit writer Kālidāsa. I read it in a book about 3 years ago and it has stuck with me since then. It’s rare that I get “excited” about quotes, but this one really got me. I think about it often.

For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision;
And today well-lived makes
Yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope

Things I’m reminded when reading this:

  1. Life is right now in this moment
  2. Worrying too much about the future isn’t very helpful
