present

A Quote by unknown on anxiety, belief, bureaucracy, certainty, community, concern, country, creativity, desires, family, future, ideas, leisure, life, luxury, money, nature, nostalgia, past, reward, self-reliance, technology, present, and work

It's not a single idea, but many ideas and attitudes, including a reverence for nature and a preference for country life; a desire for maximum personal self-reliance and creative leisure; a concern for family nurture and community cohesion; a certain hostility toward luxury; a belief that the primary reward of work should be well-being rather than money; a certain nostalgia for the supposed simplicities of the past and an anxiety about the technological and bureaucratic complexities of the present and the future; and a taste for the plain and functional.

A Quote by unknown on cats, day, good, justice, men, and present

Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it, don't wait for it, just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a cat-nap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot, black coffee.
