Happy The Man

Happy the man, and happy he alone,

   He who can call today his own:
   He who, secure within, can say,

Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.

   Be fair or fous or rain or shine

The joys I have posessed, in spite of fate, are mine.
Not Heaven itself upon the past has power,
But what has been, has been, and I have had my hour.

– John Dryden
