Romain Rolland, né à Clamecy le 29 janvier 1866 et mort à Vézelay le 30 décembre 1944, est un écrivain français, lauréat du prix Nobel de littérature de 1915.

D’une culture forgée par la passion de l’art et de la musique et le culte des héros, il chercha sa vie durant un moyen de communion entre les hommes. Son exigence de justice le poussa à souhaiter la paix « au-dessus de la mêlée » pendant et après la Première Guerre mondiale. Il est animé par un idéal humaniste et la quête d’un monde non violent, par son admiration pour Léon Tolstoï, grande figure de la non-violence, par les philosophies de l’Inde , l’enseignement de Râmakrishna et Vivekananda, par sa fascination pour ʿAbd-al-Bahāʾ , puis par le « monde nouveau » qu'il espérait voir se construire en Union soviétique.

„Be reverent before the dawning day. Do not think of what will be in a year, or in ten years. Think of to-day.“

— Romain Rolland, Jean Christophe Vol I
Context: Be reverent before the dawning day. Do not think of what will be in a year, or in ten years. Think of to-day. Leave your theories. All theories, you see, even those of virtue, are bad, foolish, mischievous. Do not abuse life. Live in to-day. Be reverent towards each day. Context: Be reverent before the dawning day. Do not think of what will be in a year, or in ten years. Think of to-day. Leave your theories. All theories, you see, even those of virtue, are bad, foolish, mischievous. Do not abuse life. Live in to-day. Be reverent towards each day. Love it, respect it, do not sully it, do not hinder it from coming to flower. Love it even when it is gray and sad like to-day. Do not be anxious. See. It is winter now. Everything is asleep. The good earth will awake again. You have only to be good and patient like the earth. Be reverent. Wait. If you are good, all will go well. If you are not, if you are weak, if you do not succeed, well, you must be happy in that. No doubt it is the best you can do. So, then, why will? Why be angry because of what you cannot do? We all have to do what we can.... Als ich kann. Gottfried to Jean-Christophe. Part 3: Ada
