Present

There is never time in the future in which we will work out our salvation. The challenge is in the moment; the time is always now.

James Baldwin (1924-1987) African-American writer.

No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy the sunlight today, mix good cheer with friends today, enjoy it and bless God for it. Do not look back on happiness -- or dream of it in the future. You are only sure of today; do not let yourself be cheated out of it.

Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887) American politician.

Today is life-the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.

Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) American writer.

One today is worth two tomorrows.

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) American statesman, scientist and philosopher.

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) American naturalist, poet and philosopher.

Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) American writer.

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.

Buddha (563 BC-483 BC) Founder of Buddhism.

Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.

Wayne Dyer (1940-?) American psychotherapist, author and lecturer.

Today is a king in disguise.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet, essayist and lecturer.

Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what clearly lies at hand.
