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.
It is sadder to find the past again and find it inadequate to the present than it is to have it elude you and remain forever a harmonious conception of memory.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present.
Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it.
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.
Be intent upon the perfection of the present day.
The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.
A gift, with a kind countenance, is a double present.
While we are living in the present, we must celebrate life every day, knowing that we are becoming history with every work, every action, every deed.
We must have constantly present in our minds the difference between independence and liberty. Liberty is a right of doing whatever the laws permit, and if a citizen could do what they forbid he would no longer be possessed of liberty.
Charles de Montesquieu
Existence is no more than the precarious attainment of relevance in an intensely mobile flux of past, present, and future.
I just like having fun. And, you know, sometimes I just like to present myself in that fun energy.
Men are able to sustain a career into their 50s and 60s and still present themselves as sex symbols. With women, on the other hand, people say, 'Why doesn't she retire?'
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is God's gift, that's why we call it the present.
Confine yourself to the present.
Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
One cannot and must not try to erase the past merely because it does not fit the present.
There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief.
The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.
I chose to present myself as one who comes from among the people, and I can be touched by their pain because I have my own.
T. D. Jakes
Photography can only represent the present. Once photographed, the subject becomes part of the past.
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.
I deal with cultural issues whether they be in the Middle East, Far East, the Orient or the West. You broach questions in the context of their culture and then present Christian answers.
There is no longer a way out of our present situation except by forging a road toward our objective, violently and by force, over a sea of blood and under a horizon blazing with fire.
Gamal Abdel Nasser
Canadians know that the promise of a recession didn't happen because of anything we did here. If you look at all the causes of the recession, problems in mortgage markets, the problems in the banking sector, the problems in government finance in countries like Greece, none of those problems were in present Canada.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
