“Yesterday is but a dream,
Tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope.”
Kālidāsa, The complete works of Kalidasa
tags: hope
“Hadapilah hari ini!
Inilah saatnya untuk menuntut hidup yang nyata,
Dalam rentang waktu yang pendek ini, kita mendapat kesempatan untuk:

Berkembang dengan gembira, bertindak dengan mulia.
Menciptakan keindahan yang mempesona,
Karena hari kemarin cuma mimpi dan hari esok cuma bayang-bayang.
Tapi bila hari ini kita jalani dengan baik, setiap hari kemarin akan menjadi mimpi yang indah.
Dan setiap hari esok menjadi bayang-bayang harapan.
Jadi manfaatkanlah hari ini sebaik-baiknya.”
“Today well lived makes every yesterday a memory of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.”
The autumn comes, a maiden fair
In slenderness and grace,
With nodding rice-stems in her hair
And lilies in her face.
In flowers of grasses she is clad;
And as she moves along,
Birds greet her with their cooing glad
Like bracelets' tinkling song.”
“KING (to Sakuntala): O fair lady!
The tear drop that once stood
trembling on your lower lip
-and I watched uncaring, lost in delusion-
while it still clings to your gently-curving lashes,
I shall now wipe away, my beloved,
to free myself of remorse.”
Kālidāsa, The Loom of Time: A Selection of His Plays and Poems
“Did the great Creator first draw her in a masterpiece,   (9) And then touch life into his art? Or did he make her in his mind alone, Drawing on beauty’s every part? No—considering her singular perfection And her maker’s true omnipotence, I suppose her some quite unique creation In femininity’s treasure house.”
Kālidāsa, The Recognition of Sakuntala: A Play In Seven Acts
“I recognise your body in liana; your expression in the eyes of a frightened gazelle; the beauty of your face in that of the moon, your tresses in the plumage of peacocks... alas! Timid friend- no one object compares to you.”
“Why fight with an enemy who flees way at the mere twang of our bow”
Kālidāsa, Shakuntala
