Motto Touches Deep

Inspiration comes from the strangest of places.
I was at "work" on Monday, searching for adult education classes (don't ask) and came upon the motto for one of the local high schools.
A little extra detective work found that the motto is a good deal longer than the school allows on it's crest and the history is longer than that. It involves inscription and things from centuries past and whatever. 
The sentiment, however, is a thought provoking one: 
"Yesterday is a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore to this day."
Despite my faith, and complete belief in a life beyond this one, and my efforts to keep an eternal perspective, it is still one day at a time we have to live this life.
If today is a day well lived, well tried, tomorrow will be better than if I feel guilt or regret about yesterday.

This is me, thinking those Sanskrit guys knew what they were about.
