Take life too seriously, and what is it worth? If the morning wake us to no new joys, if the evening bring us not the hope of new pleasures, is it worth while to dress and undress? Does the sun shine on me to–day that I may reflect on yesterday? That I may endeavor to foresee and to control what can neither be foreseen nor controlled – the destiny of to–morrow?
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
