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.
With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now.
Ignore reality, there's nothing you can do about it.
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that 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.
I never think of the future - it comes soon enough.
No man is rich enough to buy back his past.
I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living.
Living the past is a dull and lonely business; looking back strains the neck muscles, causing you to bump into people not going your way.
The secret of health for both mind and body is...live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
There is nothing you can do about the past except keep it there.
If you are at peace, you are living in the present.
Let the dead Past bury its dead!
Let go. Why do you cling to pain? There is nothing you can do about the wrongs of yesterday. It is not yours to judge. Why hold on to the very thing which keeps you from hope and love?
Faith doesn't mean that you don't have doubts.
The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.
Look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again.
We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.
The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.
