MARTIAL, Epigrams

Laugh and be wise.

MARTIAL, attributed, Day's Collacon

Tomorrow you will live, you always cry;
In what fair country does this morrow lie,
That 'tis so mighty long ere it arrive?
Beyond the Indies does this morrow live?

'Twill be both very old and very dear.
"To-morrow I will live," the fool does say:
To-day itself's too late; the wise lived yesterday.
