I Was Born Today

Everyday that dawns, you must say to yourself, I was born today. The world is new to me. This light that I behold strikes my unclouded eyes for the first time. The rains that scatters its crystal drops is my big day.

Then let us live a pure life, A shining life! Already yesterday is lost. Was it bad? Was it beautiful? Let it be forgotten. And of that yesterday let there remain only the essence, the precious gold of what I loved and suffered as I walked along the road.

Today every moments shall bring feelings of well-being and cheer, and the reason for my existence, my most urgent resolve, will be to spread happiness all over the world, to pour the wine of goodness into the eager mouths around me.
