"Today is your day. 
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!

You will come to a place where the streets are not marked.
Some windows are lighted.  But mostly they're darked.
A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
Do you dare to stay out?  Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose? How much can you win?
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.
You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!” 
Dr. Seuss
