*“Quid fit futurum cras fuge querere, et Quam Sors dierum cumque ferar, lucro Appone…………….” —Attributed to Quintus Horatius Flaccus (65-8 B.C.) or Horace, in his Odes, I; 9, 13. Translation: "Avoid asking what tomorrow will bring”. Horace advises us to live in the here and now because nobody can live tomorrow until it becomes today. The proverb is more commonly interpreted as the pursuit of happiness “Accept with thankfulness the time that God bestows on you and do not defer the Enjoyment of the Comforts and Pleasures of Life”
