Happy birthday to the Duke, who said:

“Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself into our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.”

John Wayne, May 26, 1907 — June 11, 1979

And yesterday was the birthday of Ralph Waldo Emerson, who wrote:

“Finish every 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; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson, May 25, 1803 — April 27, 1882
