I was telling myself, no more work today, but when I stumbled Patrick Stewart’s newest “Sonnet a Day” video, I knew I just had to share it with you guys. What makes this video so special is not Stewart’s toxedo or his martini, nor is it shakespeare’s Sonnet 154, which concludes his “Sonnet a Day” series, but it’s the quote he reads from behind the bookmark a dear friend gave him a long time ago. Watch:
Sonnet 154. The final one. Here's to everyone who has been so kindly watching and listening to these sonnets. We never expected anything like this and we appreciate it enormously. Thank you! #ASonnetADay pic.twitter.com/K2l1UAa3a0

From Horace’s Odes 3.29:
“Happy the man, and happy he alone,
he who can call today his own:
he who, secure within, can say,
Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.
