The past, the present and the future are really one: they are today.
Harriet Beecher Stowe

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.
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
William Arthur Ward
Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
The answer is, who you are cannot be defined through thinking or mental labels or definitions, because it's beyond that. It is the very sense of being, or presence, that is there when you become conscious of the present moment. In essence, you and what we call the present moment are, at the deepest level, one.
I try to learn from the past, but I plan for the future by focusing exclusively on the present. That's where the fun is.
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.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
