In the spirit of Christmastime and the impending new year, it seems appropriate to share another nugget of wisdom from our old friend, Oogway the kung-fu grandmaster turtle. This quote happens to be my very favorite:
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.
Good stuff, Master Oogway! May each of us live every day in the beauty and serenity of this truth.
