I subscribe to A.Word.A.Day and much as I enjoy the words (today's word is nyctophobia: an abnormal fear of night or darkness), I always look forward to the closing A THOUGHT FOR TODAY, today's being particularly apt:

It ought to be plain
how little you gain
by getting excited
and vexed.
You'll always be late
for the previous train,
and always in time
for the next.
-Piet Hein,
poet and scientist
