|Remember then: there is only one time that is
important--Now! It is the most important time because it is
the only time when we have any power.
The meeting of two eternities, the past and future....is precisely
the present moment.
Henry David Thoreau
The more I give myself permission to live in the moment and
enjoy it without feeling guilty or judgmental about any other
time, the better I feel about the quality of my work.
The past is a guidepost, not a hitching post.
L. Thomas Holdcroft
Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it
were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not
There is never time in the future in which we will work out
our salvation. The challenge is in the moment; the time is always
Today is life-the only life you are sure of. Make the most of
today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop
a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live
today with gusto.
We are always getting ready to live but never living.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We may make our future by the best use of the present. There
is no moment like the present.
We seem to be going through a period of nostalgia, and everyone
seems to think yesterday was better than today. I don't think
it was, and I would advise you not to wait ten years before
admitting today was great. If you're hung up on nostalgia, pretend
today is yesterday and just go out and have one hell of a time.
What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and
our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is
the creation of our mind.
When I am anxious it is because I am living in the future. When
I am depressed it is because I am living in the past.
When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look
so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do
not see the ones which open for us.
Alexander Graham Bell
Write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought
for are commonly the most valuable.
Yesterday is a canceled check; tomorrow is a promissory note;
today is the only cash you have - so spend it wisely.
You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves
your arms too full to embrace the present.
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave,
find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island
opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other
land, there is no other life but this.
Henry David Thoreau
Waste not fresh tears over old griefs.
We cannot carry our father's corpse with us everywhere we go.
The Cubist Painters.
Opportunities fly by while we sit regretting the chances we
have lost, and the happiness that comes to us we heed not, because
of the happiness that is gone.
Jerome K. Jerome
The Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow.
You have to wake up a virgin each morning.
We can easily manage if we will only take, each day, the burden
appointed to it. But the load will be too heavy for us if we
carry yesterday's burden over again today, and then add the
burden of the morrow before we are required to bear it.
If you have one eye on yesterday, and one eye on tomorrow, you're
going to be cockeyed today.
Not the power to remember, but its very opposite, the power
to forget, is a necessary condition for our existence.
If you worry about what might be, and wonder what might have
been, you will ignore what is.
Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around
We crucify ourselves between two thieves: regret for yesterday
and fear of tomorrow.
Seize from every moment its unique novelty, and do not prepare
In today already walks tomorrow.
Friedrich von Schiller
The ability to be in the present moment is a major component
of mental wellness.
I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.
The future is an opaque mirror. Anyone who tries to look into
it sees nothing but the dim outlines of an old and worried face.
Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have
to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
I got the blues thinking of the future, so I left off and made
some marmalade. It's amazing how it cheers one up to shred oranges
and scrub the floor.
