Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803

I can admire that. But rats and cholera have won many wars. Those, and potatoes, or the absence of them.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood
