…and multitude of years should teach wisdom.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery said that life has meaning only if one barters it day by day for something other than itself. At first I did not understand this statement but then I realised that, as Soren Kierkergaard said, “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards” – one day at a time.
“Only that day dawns to which we are awake.” – Henry David Thoreau
“The day is committed to error and floundering; success and achievement are matters of long range” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.” – John Burroughs
