Today is a gift

I was watching Kungfu Panda when the turtle master said something profound. "Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift. That is why it is called present". I looked it up on the internet and the best I could find was this:

by Laszlo Kotro-Kosztandi

Many people will walk in and out of your life,
But only true friends will leave footprints in your heart
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you twice, it is your fault
Great minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
He who loses money, loses much;
He who loses a friend, loses much more;
He who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others
You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
Friends, you and me ... You brought another friend ... and we started our
group ... our circle of friends ... and like a circle ... there is no
beginning or end ... Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift.

Ah, wise master turtle. Reminds me of David Carradine's blind master Po in the TV series Kung-Fu
