Until very recently, there was a short quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson that greeted us as we went up to bed:
Finish each day and be done with it. Tomorrow is a new day, begin it well.
It battled bravely, but ended up like all quotes do, with letters strewn bloody on the carpet.
But the quote had the last laugh. It turns out that the actual quote is more like this:
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
