One posted by a good friend on his fb page:
"Look to this day for it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lies all the realities and varieties of existence.
The bliss of growth, the splendor of action, the glory of power.
For yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
and tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore to this day..."
-- Sanskrit Proverb
The other by a public figure in my country:
"I love this warning: Never judge a man by his relatives. He or she did not choose them. Don't brag about your ancestors -- give your descendants something to brag about. Every person is uniquely, wonderfully and beautifully made by God. We need to start with this thought. This reduces a lot of ugly discrimination. Life would be better this way."
