Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. -Albert Einstein

For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. – Steve Jobs

How can the past and future be, when the past no longer is, and the future is not yet? As for the present, if it were always present and never moved on to become the past, it would not be time, but eternity.– Augustine of Hippo, Confessions

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present. – Bil Keane

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.- Mother Teresa

The future depends on what you do today.- Mahatma Gandhi

Real generosity towards the future lies in giving all to the present.- Albert Camus

The future starts today, not tomorrow.- Pope John Paul II

The past is a ghost, the future a dream and all we ever have is now.- Bill Cosby

Gratitude looks to the Past and love to the Present; fear, avarice, lust, and ambition look ahead.- C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

For the Present is the point at which time touches eternity.- C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. – Og Mandino

Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today. – Thich Nhat Hanh

Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago. – Warren Buffett

All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today. – Pope Paul VI

In magic – and in life – there is only the present moment, the now. You can’t measure time the way you measure the distance between two points. ‘Time’ doesn’t pass. We human beings have enormous difficulty in focusing on the present; we’re always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and about why we didn’t act as we should have. Or else we think about the future, about what we’re going to do tomorrow, what precautions we should take, what dangers await us around the next corner, how to avoid what we don’t want and how to get what we have always dreamed of.- Paulo Coelho, Aleph

One cannot and must not try to erase the past merely because it does not fit the present. – Golda Meir, My Life

“Happiness is like manna; it is to be gathered in grains, and enjoyed every day. It will not keep; it cannot be accumulated; nor have we got to go out of ourselves or into remote places to gather it, since it has rained down from Heaven, at our very door.” – Tryon Edwards

“To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.” – William Blake
