Proverbs from India
Yesterday is but 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.
The eyes do not see what the mind does not want.
Something done at the wrong time should be regarded as not done.
He who allows his day to pass by without practicing generosity and enjoying life's pleasures is like a blacksmith's bellows: he breathes but does not live.
As day break, the glowworms say "We've lit up the world!"
