One day all time
               This is enough
Do not look back
               And grieve over the past,
For it is gone;
               And do not be troubled 
 About the future,
               For it has not yet come.
Live in the present,
               And make it so beautiful
That it will be worth remembering.
                                        --- Ida Scott Taylor.
