NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the creator and star of Hamilton and In the Heights, 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.
