~"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."
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
~"If it is to be, it is up to me!"

And they came.
And he pushed them.
