For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
|—||Ralph Waldo (via confusedunderused)|
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 of a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
