NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An uplifting holiday gift from the creator and star of Hamilton, with beautiful illustrations by Jonny Sun, comes a book of affirmations to inspire readers at the beginning and end of each day.

“When the world is bringing you down, Gmorning, Gnight! will remind you that you are awesome.”—Booklist

Good morning. Do NOT get stuck in the comments section of life today. Make, do, create the things. Let others tussle it out. Vamos!

Before he inspired the world with Hamilton and was catapulted to international fame, Lin-Manuel Miranda was inspiring his Twitter followers with words of encouragement at the beginning and end of each day. He wrote these original sayings, aphorisms, and poetry for himself as much as for others. But as Miranda’s audience grew, these messages took on a life on their own. Now Miranda has gathered the best of his daily greetings into a beautiful collection illustrated by acclaimed artist (and fellow Twitter favorite) Jonny Sun. Full of comfort and motivation, Gmorning, Gnight! is a touchstone for anyone who needs a quick lift.

An excerpt from Gmorning, Gnight!

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.
