A Quote by Dale Carnegie on present, now, ss-swsl, and ss-swsl-ch1

(…) all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon – instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Dale Carnegie (1888 - 1955)

A Quote by Dale Carnegie on present, now, past, future, ss-swsl, and ss-swsl-ch1

You and I are standing this very second at the meeting place of two eternities: the vast past that has endured forever, and the future that is plunging on to the last syllable of recorded time. We can’t possible live in either of those eternities – no, not even for a split second. But, by trying to do so, we can wreck both our bodies and our minds. So let’s be content to live the only time we can possible live: from now until bedtime.

Dale Carnegie (1888 - 1955)

A Quote by William Somerset Maugham on now, present, moment, and value

The passing moment is all we can be sure of; it is only common sense to extract the most value from it.

A Quote by John Gile on now, future, present, and illusion

The illusion
     that there will be some time in the future
           when all things will come together for us
                  interferes with our fully living today.
If we aren't living fully now,
      we never will.
The only time we ever have
      is the present.

John Gile

A Quote by Leonard Jacobson on presence, life, awakening, world, appreciation, and now

If you can see it, hear it, feel it, taste it, touch it, or smell it, you can be present with it. It is of the present moment, and so it brings to you the opportunity to be present with it.

A Quote by Leonard Jacobson on presence, now, awakening, and world

You cannot be present in an abstract way. Presence is not about disappearing into nothingness. You can only be present with something that is actually here.

A Quote by Leonard Jacobson on presence, awakening, enlightenment, life, destination, journey, now, and spirituality

You get lost because you think there is somewhere to go. If you give up believing in a goal or a destination, then you cannot get lost. In the present moment, there is no destination.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on goals, journey, arrival, presence, and now

Let go of the idea that the path will lead you to your goal.  The truth is that with each step we take, we arrive.  Repeat that to yourself every morning: 'I've arrived.'  That way you'll find it much easier to stay in touch with each second of your day.

A Quote by Robin Morgan on life, presence, awareness, and now

Listen – life is really going on, right now,
around us.  Do you see it?  Sometimes I lose it
but if I sit still and listen, it comes back,
and then I think, How funny, this is what being alive is.

Robin Morgan (1941 -)
