Proverbs : 15:10
Discipline is bad to the one leaving the path; anyone hating reproof will die.
Proverbs : 15:5

Proverbs : 15:23
A man has rejoicing in the answer of his mouth,
and a word at its right time is O how good!
There are two days in every week that we should not worry about,
two days that should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One is Yesterday, with its mistakes and cares,
its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
Yesterday has passed, forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday.
We cannot undo a single act we performed.
Nor can we erase a single word we’ve said
– Yesterday is gone!
The other day we shouldn’t worry about is Tomorrow,
with its impossible adversaries, its burden,
its hopeful promise and poor performance.
Tomorrow is beyond our control.
Tomorrow’s sun will rise either in splendor or
behind a mask of clouds – but it will rise.
And until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow,
for it is yet unborn.
This leaves only one day – Today.
Any person can fight the battles of just one day.
It is only when we add the burdens of yesterday
and tomorrow that we break down.
It is not the experience of today that drives people
mad – it is the remorse of bitterness for something
which happened yesterday, and the dread of
what tomorrow may bring.
Make TODAY the best day it can be, and let us,
Live our lives
whichever Best way we can;
one day at a time.
