Good morning, he said.

Be at home in your head.

Make sure joy is well fed.

Don’t let dread hog the bed.

Good night now, and rest.

Today was a test.

You passed it, you’re past it.

Now breathe till unstressed.

Good morning, stunner.

You’re just getting started.

Your age doesn’t matter.

The sun is up, the day is new.

You’re just getting started.

Good night, stunner.

You’re just getting started.

Your age doesn’t matter.

The stars are out, the night is warm.

You’re just getting started.

Good morning.

Good gracious.

Your smile is

contagious.

Good night then.

Good gracious.

You’re one

for the ages.

Good morning.

Lead with gratitude.

The air in your lungs, the sky above you.

Proceed from there.

Good night.

Curl up with gratitude.

For the ground beneath you, your beating heart.

Proceed from there.

Gmorning!

You’re gonna make mistakes.

You’re gonna fail.

You’re gonna get back up.

You’re gonna break hearts.

You’re gonna change minds.

You’re gonna make noise.

You’re gonna make music.

You’re gonna be late, let’s GO.

Gnight!

You’re gonna fall down.

You’re gonna be tested.

You’re gonna learn about yourself.

You’re gonna get brave.

You’re gonna take stands.

You’re gonna make waves.

You’re gonna make history.

You’re gonna need rest, REST UP.

Good morning!

Good morning!

Let’s make some new mistakes!

Let’s find the things worth saving in the mess our living makes!

Good night!

Good night!

Let’s make some new mistakes!

Let’s stumble toward success and pack some snacks for little breaks!

Gmorning!

Before you let the world in, make a little space for yourself.

Cup of coffee, tidy the counter, morning quiet.

Savor the best part of that dream you had for one more second.

Woo! Okay. Have at it, world!

Gnight!

Before you turn the world down, make a little space for yourself.

Brush your teeth, tidy the counter, put down the phone.

Savor the best part of the day for one more second.

Woo! Okay. Have at it, dreams!

Good morning!

Give your time, give your heart, give your talent, give someone something new.

It feels incredible.

Good night!

Give your time, give your heart, give your service, give someone something you made.

It feels incredible.

Gmorning.

Check your pockets.

Got your keys?

*waits*

Okay, let’s go!

Gnight.

Check your brain.

Got your dreams ready?

*waits*

Okay, let’s go!

Gmorning.

YOU ARE SO LOVED AND WE LIKE HAVING YOU AROUND.

*ties one end of this sentence to your heart, the other end to everyone who loves you, even the ones you haven’t heard from for a while*

*checks knots*

THERE. STAY PUT, YOU.

Gnight.

YOU ARE SO LOVED AND WE LIKE HAVING YOU AROUND.

*ties one end of this sentence to your heart, the other end to everyone who loves you in this life, even if clouds obscure your view*

*checks knots*

THERE. STAY PUT, YOU.

TUG IF YOU NEED ANYTHING.

Good morning.

Keep busy while you wait for the miracle.

Good night.

Get some rest while you wait for the miracle.

Sneak a copy to a friend, a cop, a nurse/aide, retail clerk, mother/father of children at home, chronic illness sufferer, teenager, and absolutely everyone whether you know them or not! And keep one at your bedside to help you remember how wonderful you are!

Excellent book! Brings you up with life changing motivation, especially with Lin's unique poetry like writing. Beautiful style of writing he has in my opinion. And with those illustrations, honestly beautiful book itself! Absolutly wonderful work.

I purchased this book for my 14 year old granddaughter because she is such a big fan of Lin-Manuel Miranda. I was going to give it to her for Christmas but we decided she should have it right away. She loves this book. She states it is uplifting and inspires her. Thank you for such a wonderful book and for being a great human being, Lin. We are huge fans of yours!

GMORNING, GNIGHT (little pep talks for me and you) by Lin-Manuel Miranda with illustrations by Jonny Sun was a delight to read, all in one sitting! For years, LMM has been encouraging his Twitter followers at the beginning and ending of each day. These tweets are like having a life coach, cheerleader, therapist, and great friend whispering affirmations of kindness and motivation into your ear before and after your day. Although I sped through this, I plan on keeping it out to read a few lines each morning with my coffee. This collection would also be perfect for a morning commute or enjoyed with tea or wine at night. The illustrations were clearly sketched to reflect the soulful content of each pair of tweets and add an extra layer of sweet creativity to each page. Thank you to Random House for my copy, in exchange for my honest review.
