Quotes, Sayings about Living in the Present
|Live Now Quotes 1
|Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.
And Today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present.
The other day a man asked me what I thought was the best time
of life. "Why," I answered without a thought, "now."
Today is the greatest
Day I've ever known
Can't live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow's much too long.
Today, song by The Smashing Pumpkins.
The living moment is everything.
Life's a journey, not a destination.
Forever is composed of nows.
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.
One today is worth two tomorrows.
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
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.
It's but little good you'll do a-watering the last year's crops.
Don't let yesterday use up too much of today.
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.
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
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.
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
Ralph Waldo Emerson
God made the world round so we would never be able to see too
far down the road.
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.
If you wait for tomorrow, tomorrow comes. If you don't wait
for tomorrow, tomorrow comes.
I have realized that the past and future are real illusions,
that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all
It is only possible to live happily-ever-after on a day-to-day
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.
Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed.
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.
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
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.
