“Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today.” ~ Will Rogers (November 4, 1879 to August 15, 1935)

Will Rogers was an American cowboy, humorist, social commentator, and actor. He was widely admired.

[Note: from a card I had framed and now have in my kitchen next to photos of my Mom and Dad. The card describes the quotation as a “Native American Proverb.” However, it more likely sounds like something Will Rogers would have said or written! I’ll go with on this one.]

  2. Hi Carolyn,

    Thank you for your comment. I agree. It’s something I’ve struggled with through much of my life. I’m focusing on the present – and my future in publishing!

    As a friend tells me, Write on Carolyn!

    Sincerely, Andy
