Live Now Quotes 1 - 2
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And Today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present.
Babatunde Olatunji

The other day a man asked me what I thought was the best time of life. "Why," I answered without a thought, "now."
David Grayson

Today is the greatest
Day I've ever known
Can't live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow's much too long.
Billy Corgan
Today, song by The Smashing Pumpkins.

The living moment is everything.
D.H. Lawrence

Life's a journey, not a destination.

Forever is composed of nows.
Emily Dickinson

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
Dale Carnegie

One today is worth two tomorrows.
Benjamin Franklin

Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.
Mary Jean Iron

Children have neither a past nor a future. Thus they enjoy the present which seldom happens to us.
Jean de la Bruyère

With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

One problem with gazing too frequently into the past is that we may turn around to find the future has run out on us.
Michael Cibenko

It's but little good you'll do a-watering the last year's crops.
George Eliot
Adam Bede.

Don't let yesterday use up too much of today.
Cherokee Proverb

Nothing is worth more than this day.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

We are only born once - twice is not allowed - and it is necessary that we shall be no more, for all eternity; and yet you, who are not master of tomorrow, you keep on putting off your joy? Yet life is vainly consumed in these delays, and each of us does this without ever having known peace.

Rejoice in the things that are present; all else is beyond thee.
Michel de Montaigne

Nothing ever gets anywhere. The earth keeps turning round and gets nowhere. The moment is the only thing that counts.
Jean Cocteau
Professional Secrets.

Look to this day for it is life,
The very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the realities
And truths of existence;
The joy of growth,
The splendour of action,
The glory of power.
For yesterday is but a memory,
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived makes every
Yesterday a memory of happiness.
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
Ancient Sanskrit poem by Kelidasa

Life lived for tomorrow will always be just a day away from being realized.
Leo Buscaglia

Trust no future, howe'er pleasant!
Let the dead past bury its dead!
Act, - act in the living Present!
Heart within and God o'erhead.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Psalm of Life.

The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time.
Abraham Lincoln

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

God made the world round so we would never be able to see too far down the road.
Isak Dinesen

Every morning is a fresh beginning. Every day is the world made new. Today is a new day. Today is my world made new. I have lived all my life up to this moment, to come to this day. This moment--this day--is as good as any moment in all eternity. I shall make of this day--each moment of this day--a heaven on earth. This is my day of opportunity.
Dan Custer

If you wait for tomorrow, tomorrow comes. If you don't wait for tomorrow, tomorrow comes.
Senegalese Proverb

I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.
Alan Watts

It is only possible to live happily-ever-after on a day-to-day basis.
Margaret Bonnano

Know the true value of time! Snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no procrastination. Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
Philip Chesterfield

Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed.
Coreta Kent

Living in the moment means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future. It means living your life consciously, aware that each moment you breathe is a gift.
Oprah Winfrey

We steal if we touch tomorrow. It is God's.
Henry Ward Beecher

Slight not what's near through aiming at what's far.

Present-moment living, getting in touch with your "now," is at the heart of effective living. When you think about it, there really is no other moment you can live. Now is all there is, and the future is just another present moment to live when it arrives. One thing is certain, you cannot live it until it does appear.
Wayne Dyer

Life is a great and wondrous mystery, and the only thing we know that we have for sure is what is right here right now. Don't miss it.
Leo Buscaglia
