Remember, Christian Soul,

Remember, Christian soul, that thou hast this day, and every day of thy life: God to glorify, Jesus to imitate, The angels and saints to invoke, A soul to save, A body to mortify, Sins to expiate, Virtues to acquire, Hell to avoid, Heaven to gain, Eternity to prepare for, Time to profit of. Neighbours to edify, The world to despise, Devils to combat, Passions to subdue, Death perhaps to suffer. And Judgement to undergo. 
(Found in the St. Augustine's prayer book)
