A lot of women don't realize that even a small heel helps you throw your shoulders back and keep your chest up; it really does make a difference in the way you present yourself. It changes your posture and makes you look more confident.
We are always acting on what has just finished happening. It happened at least 1/30th of a second ago. We think we're in the present, but we aren't. The present we know is only a movie of the past.
I worked for a big department store, and strangely, on my first day, they put me in charge of Christmas wrapping. I didn't know how to wrap a present and make it not look like it fell off a truck.
Creation is all space, all time - all things past, present, and future.
For present buying, I go to Harrods because there are great personal shoppers, who point me in the right direction.
Iranians defend and present their Islamic and Iranian identity to other people worldwide.
Children aren't just our future. They're our present.
People tend to vote the present tense - not the subjective.
For myself, I do not now know in any concrete human terms wherein my individuality consists. In my present human form of consciousness I simply cannot tell.
History is present in all my novels. And whether I am directly talking about the sociological moment or just immersing my character in the environment, I am very aware of it.
We lie to one another every day, in the sweetest way, often unconsciously. We dress ourselves and compose ourselves in order to present ourselves to one another.
John le Carre
I play PC and Xbox games at home, and I just got a PSP as a birthday present.
I'm not a very good singer. I just know how to present a song, and honey, I think I've been through enough to do it right.
I see writing and acting as different parts of the same continuum. Writing is better for intense emotion. If you're very angry about something, you shouldn't present it as strongly when you're acting. But if you're really angry and writing about it, that's the best way to get it out and across.
If the future, as imagined in literature, is really the present taken to extremes, then the past is also the present, but boiled down.
I am a part of the political process whether the multinational forces are present or not. Politics is serving the people, not chairs and positions.
Muqtada al Sadr
Put simply, behavioural economics argues that human beings' decision-taking is guided by the evolutionary baggage which we bring with us to the present day. Evolution has made us rational to a point, but not perfectly so. It has given us emotions, for example, which programme us to override our rational brain and act more instinctively.
At the present moment, the security of coherent philosophy, which existed from Parmenides to Hegel, is lost.
Movies have to handle time very efficiently. They're about stringing scenes together in the present. Novels aren't necessarily about that.

That distinctive presidential conduct is now gone forever, banished to the snows of yesteryear by Barack Obama. From the beginning of his presidency to the present, he has spoken specifically and in unprecedented fashion of Republicans as his rivals, his stumbling blocks, the primary cause of his troubles.
My reaction to a lot of the current situation that we're in is based in part on a serious concern that the present administration's course ignores reality.
In the '60s - and right up to the present day - the identity of a member of the British Secret Services was and is, quite rightly, a state secret. To divulge it is a crime. The Services may choose to leak a name when it pleases them.
John le Carre
To be awake is to be fully present, no noise, just you and God. Most of us only have seconds of full consciousness. To live in a state of Samadhi - that's what we're here for.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
