A skillful way of looking at time

When I was in the convent, we were taught to experience each day as a lifetime. We went to sleep as if it were our death and woke up each morning as if it were rebirth. The following expresses the same basic idea:

I do not cut my life up into days but my days into lives, each day, each hour, an entire life.

- Juan Ramon Jimenez
