Some say "to-morrow" never comes,
  A saying oft thought right;
    But if to-morrow never came,
      No end were of "to-night."
        The fact is this, time flies so fast,
          That e'er we've time to say
            "To-morrow's come," presto! behold!
              "To-morrow" proves "To-day."
      - Unattributed Author,
        from "Notes and Queries", fourth series, vol. XII

      - Anonymous

It's hard to face tomorrow, but it's easier than facing no tomorrow.
      - Ashleigh Brilliant

Dreaming of a to-morrow, which to-morrow
  Will be as distant then as 'tis to-day.
      - Tome Burguillos (Lope Felix de Vega Carpio)

How oft my guardian angel gently cried,
  "Soul, from thy casement look, and thou shalt see
    How he persists to knock and wait for thee!"
      And, O! how often to that voice of sorrow,
        "To-morrow we will open," I replied,
          And when the morrow came I answered still, "To-morrow."
      - Tome Burguillos (Lope Felix de Vega Carpio)

How oft my guardian angel gently cried,
  "Soul, from thy casement look, and thou shalt see
    How he persists to knock and wait for thee!"
      And, O! how often to that voice of sorrow,
        "To-morrow we will open," I replied,
          And when the morrow came I answered still, "To-morrow."
      - Lope Felix de Vega Carpio ("Tome Burguillos"),
        To-morrow (l. 9),
        (Longfellow's translation)

Dreaming of a to-morrow, which to-morrow
  Will be as distant then as 'tis to-day.
      - Lope Felix de Vega Carpio ("Tome Burguillos"),
        To-morrow, and To-morrow,
        (John Bowring's translation)

To-morrow may never come to us. We do not live in to-morrow. We cannot find it in any of our title-deeds. The man who owns whole blocks of real estate, and great ships on the sea, does not own a single minute of to-morrow. To-morrow! It is a mysterious possibility, not yet born. It lies under the seal of midnight, behind the veil of glittering constellations.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Never do but one thing at a time, and never put off till to-morrow what you can do today.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

To-morrow will give some food for thought.
  [Lat., Aliquod crastinus dies ad cogitandum dabit.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Epistoloe Ad Atticum (XV, 8)

A shining isle in a stormy sea,
  We seek it ever with smiles and sighs;
    To-day is sad. In the bland To-be,
      Serene and lovely To-morrow lies.
      - Mary Clemmer (Mary Clemmer Ames),
        To-morrow

In the downhill of life, when I find I'm declining,
  May my lot no less fortunate be
    Than a snug elbow-chair can afford for reclining,
      And a cot that o'erlooks the wide sea;
        With an ambling pad-pony to pace o'er the lawn,
          While I carol away idle sorrow,
            And blithe as the lark that each day hails the dawn,
              Look forward with hope for to-morrow.
      - John Churton Collins, To-morrow,
        found in the "Golden Treasury of Best Songs and Lyrical Poems"

To-morrow!--it is a period nowhere to be found in all the hoary registers of time, unless perchance in the fool's calendar.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Ask me questions concerning to-morrow.
      - William Congreve

Defer not till to-morrow to be wise,
  To-morrow's Sun to thee may never rise;
    Or should to-morrow chance to cheer thy sight
      With her enlivening and unlook'd for light,
        How grateful will appear her dawning rays!
          As favours unexpected doubly please.
      - William Congreve, Letter to Cobham (l. 61)

To-morrow, didst thou say?
  Methought I heard Horatio say, To-morrow!
    Go to--I will not hear it. To-morrow!
      'Tis a sharper--who stakes his penury
        Against thy plenty--takes thy ready cash,
          And pays thee naught but wishes, hopes, and promises,
            The currency of idiots--injurious bankrupt,
              That gulls the easy creditor!
      - Nathaniel Cotton, To-morrow

O, fair To-morrow, what our souls have missed
  Art thou not keeping for us, somewhere, still?
    The buds of promise that have never blown--
      The tender lips that we have never kissed--
        The song whose high, sweet strain eludes our skill,
          The one white pearl that life hath never known.
      - Julia Caroline Ripley Dorr

To-morrow; never yet was born
  In earth's dull atmosphere a thing so fair
    Never tripped, with footsteps light as air,
      So glad a vision o'er the hills of morn.
      - Julia Caroline Ripley Dorr

To-morrow do thy worst, for I have lived to-day.
      - John Dryden

Trust on and think To-morrow will repay;
  To-morrow's falser than the former day;
    Lies worse; and while it says, we shall be blest
      With some new Joys, cuts off what we possest.
      - John Dryden, Aureng-zebe (act IV, sc. 1)

Happy the man, and happy he alone,
  He, who can call to-day his own:
    He who, secure within, can say,
      Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have liv'd today.
      - John Dryden, Imitation of Horace
         (bk. III, ode XXIX, l. 65)

The man least dependent upon the morrow goes to meet the morrow most cheerfully.
      - Epicurus

Never leave that till to-morrow which you can do to-day.
      - Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanac

One today is worth two tomorrows.
      - Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanac

Oh! to be wafted away
  From this black Aceldama of sorrow,
    Where the dust of an earthy to-day
      Makes the earth of a dusty to-morrow.
      - Sir William Schwenk Gilbert, Heart-Foam
