The title quote comes from Will Rogers.
The Sanskrit tells us the same thing, "Yesterday is a memory and tomorrow is but a vision but today, well lived, will make every yesterday a pleasant memory and every tomorrow a vision of hope."
A similar saying tells us that yesterday is a memory and tomorrow is a dream but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.
Today is all we have, twenty-four hours, 1440 minutes, 86,400 seconds. We have each of these hours, minutes, and seconds to use as we please but once they are used, they are gone. Don't waste any of these precious seconds worrying about what happened yesterday, it's done and you can't change it! Don't waste these precious seconds worrying about tomorrow. It's not here yet, you cannot change tomorrow today, you must live today to its fullest.
An old joke says to live every day as though it were your last because one day it will be. It would be terrible to spend your last day worrying about a tomorrow that never comes!
Don't let yesterday use up too much of today
