Yesterday is but today's memory, tomorrow is today's dream.
It was but yesterday we met in a dream.
Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
Overtakes me he forgets his toil, and his
Whole life becomes reality of sweet dreams.
When you work you fulfil a part of earth's furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born. And in keeping yourself with labour you are in truth loving life, And to love life through labour is to be intimate with life's inmost secret.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Always you have been told that work is a curse and labour a misfortune. But I say to you that when you work you fulfill a part of earth's furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born, and in keeping yourself with labour you are in truth loving life...
Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream.
