A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on miracles, seeking, now, and present

Breathing in I calm my body.  Breathing out I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment!

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on present, zen, and thirst

I am not dreaming
This is a real day, a beautiful one.
Do we want to return to the past
and play hide-and-seek?
We are here today,
and we will be here tomorrow.
This is true.
Come, you are thirsty.
We can walk together
to the spring of fresh water.

Thich Nhat Hanh

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on coelho, alchemist, past, future, present, now, and happiness

Because I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man... Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we're living right now.

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on change, future, and present

All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; and hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse.
