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.

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.

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 Robert Grudin on freedom, time, past, present, future, action, habit, lives, and life

Free men and women... can think across time, viewing their own lives, inclusive of past, present, and future, as architectural wholes, static in mental space. They can therefore see, as others cannot, the cracks and buttresses of repeated action, the points of stress, the established framework. They are not perfect; but they are less imperfect than we by a full dimension of being.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on ego, awakening, present, past, future, and self

To the ego, the present moment hardly exists. Only past and future are considered important. This total reversal of the truth accounts for the fact that in the ego mode the mind is so dysfunctional. It is always concerned with keeping the past alive, because without it - who are you?

Eckhart Tolle
