Quote of the Day

Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.
The clear and present danger of climate change means we cannot burn our way to prosperity. We already rely too heavily on fossil fuels. We need to find a new, sustainable path to the future we want. We need a clean industrial revolution.
America's present need is not heroics but healing; not nostrums but normalcy; not revolution but restoration.
Warren G. Harding
If the rate of expansion one second after the Big Bang had been smaller by even one part in a hundred thousand million million, it would have recollapsed before it reached its present size. On the other hand, if it had been greater by a part in a million, the universe would have expanded too rapidly for stars and planets to form.
The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.
Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present.
Without perestroika, the cold war simply would not have ended. But the world could not continue developing as it had, with the stark menace of nuclear war ever present.
I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realises an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don't have complete emotions about the present, only about the past.
There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief.
The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively, not by the false appearance things present and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice.
Sometimes the most beautiful thing is precisely the one that comes unexpectedly and unearned, hence something given truly as a present.
Confine yourself to the present.
But for me to have the opportunity to stand in front of a bunch of executives and present myself, I had to hustle in my own way. I can't tell you how frustrating it was that they didn't get that. No joke - I'd leave meetings crying all the time.
Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life.
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 the present.
Photography can only represent the present. Once photographed, the subject becomes part of the past.
Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.
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.
Be intent upon the perfection of the present day.
When you find your definitions in God, you find the very purpose for which you were created. Put your hand into God's hand, know His absolutes, demonstrate His love, present His truth, and the message of redemption and transformation will take hold.
Globalisation has made us more vulnerable. It creates a world without borders, and makes us painfully aware of the limitations of our present instruments, and of politics, to meet its challenges.
There's no present. There's only the immediate future and the recent past.
God is not present in idols. Your feelings are your god. The soul is your temple.
Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have.
If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
