“Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.”
— Samuel Johnson
“Living each day as if it were our last, rather than converting us into hedonists,
will make us appreciate how wonderful it is that we are alive
and have the opportunity to fill this day with activity.
This in turn will make us less likely to squander our days.
As we think about and plan for tomorrow, remember
to appreciate today.”
— William B. Irvine
