Robert Louis Stevenson is the person we attribute this quote to. He is an author. I have no idea the context of the quote or if when he wrote it the words were meant to stand alone or be read in context. Does the quote imply that at the end of each day we are supposed to look back over the day and make an assessment? If twenty different people read it will there be twenty different interpretations of the same quote? Do the works speak to you as they speak to me?
I would love to hear the first three words that came to your mind when you read the quote.
