Seize the Day!

Seize the Day!

The only limits to the possibilities in your life tomorrow are the “buts” you use today.—Les Brown

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.—Albert Einstein

Build to-day, then, strong and sure,

With a firm and ample base;

And ascending and secure

Shall to-morrow find its place.

—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (The Builders)

You had better live your best and act your best and think your best today; for today is the sure preparation for tomorrow and all the other tomorrows that follow.—Harriet Martineau

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.—Groucho Marx

Never let yesterday use up too much of today.—Will Rogers

I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today!—William Allen White

Go for gold in 2010

By the apostle Paul, writing from the 1st century

In a race everyone runs, but only one person gets first prize. So run your race to win.1

I do not count myself to have apprehended [attained]; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.2

Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.3
