LIVE IN "DAY-TIGHT COMPARTMENTS"

all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
"How strange it is, our little procession of life!" wrote Stephen Leacock. "The child says, `When I am a big boy.' But what is that? The big boy says, `When I grow up.' And then, grown up, he says, 'When I get married.' But to be married, what is that after all? The thought changes to `When I'm able to retire.' And then, when retirement comes, he looks back over the landscape traversed; a cold wind seems to sweep over it; somehow he has missed it all. Life, we learn too late, is in the living, in the tissue of every day and hour."
I have a poem pasted on my mirror where I can see it when I shave every morning-a poem that Sir William Osler always kept on his desk-written by the Indian dramatist, Kalidasa:

Look to this day'
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendor of beauty,
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only 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!
Such is the salutation to the dawn.

So, if you want to keep worry out of your life, do what Sir Wil
liam Osler did and shut the iron doors on the past and future. Live
in day-tight compartments.
