If we open a quarrel between past and present, we shall find that we have lost the future.
We should not fret for what is past, nor should we be anxious about the future; men of discernment deal only with the present moment.
Hope is the magic carpet that transports us from the present moment into the realm of infinite possibilities.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
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.
We live in a moment of history where change is so speeded up that we begin to see the present only when it is already disappearing.
R. D. Laing
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
Mindfulness helps you go home to the present. And every time you go there and recognize a condition of happiness that you have, happiness comes.
In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.
There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief.
The past, the present and the future are really one: they are today.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Life gives you plenty of time to do whatever you want to do if you stay in the present moment.
It is courage, courage, courage, that raises the blood of life to crimson splendor. Live bravely and present a brave front to adversity.
The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation.
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.
If you want the present to be different from the past, study the past.
With thoughts of the past and concerns about the future, we rob ourselves of a full experience of the present.
In Jamaica, them always have throwback riddims, recycled old beats, and the hardcore reggae scene is always present. You have faster stuff like the more commercialized stuff, but you always have that segment of music that is always from the core, from the original root of it.
No doubt, the White House thinks the American people know Obama's story. But since the Inauguration, we've seen only the president's present: his perfect family, his Ivy League elegance, his effortless mastery of complex issues. We never see him sweat. And we forget that he ever had to struggle.
Dee Dee Myers
Being deeply contented with God in my everyday life is a focused attitude. It is always available. It means practicing letting go of my obsession with how I'm doing. It means training myself to learn to actually be present with people, and seeking to love them.
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
William Arthur Ward
Losers live in the past. Winners learn from the past and enjoy working in the present toward the future.
In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time.
Leonardo da Vinci
Always say 'yes' to the present moment... Surrender to what is. Say 'yes' to life - and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.
You have got to decide, look, this is who I am; this is my best way to present myself, and I'm going to ride that horse to the finish line. Not everybody will like it, but that's OK.
One only dies once, and if one does not die well, a good opportunity is lost and will not present itself again.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
