Tao of the Day  
Benedetto te, e la terra che ti fara!
May you be blessed, and the earth you will make.

Lord Byron included this in a letter to a friend, referring to it as a Venetian benediction. A few centuries later, Tim Powers included an excerpt from this letter in The Stress of Her Regard. I think it's one of the most wonderful blessings I've ever read.

May you be blessed, and the earth you will make.
