Quotes tagged as "present" Showing of 1, Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
Looking back you do not find what you left behind. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing.
All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one. You just use the future to escape the present. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation.
We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and s, of symbols, s, conceptions and ideas.
Lewis, The Screwtape Letters. Make the moment important, vital, and worth living.
Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused. That you are having a breakdown does not mean that your life isn't a mess.
If there are issues you have successfully skirted or avoided for years, they come cropping back up and stare you full in the face, and one aspect of depression is a deep knowledge that the comforting doctors who assure you that your judgment is bad are wrong. You are in touch with the real terribleness of your life.
You can accept rationally that later, after the medication sets in, you will be better able to deal with the terribleness, but you will not be free of it. When you are depressed, the past and future are absorbed entirely by the present moment, as in the world of a three-year-old.
You cannot remember a time when you felt better, at least not clearly; and you certainly cannot imagine a future time when you will feel better. You look at what you have, not what you miss, and you move forward. You can't measure time the way you measure the distance between two points.
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.
Now is also a cold reminder: one whole day later than yesterday, one year later than last year. Every now is labeled with its date, rendering all past nows obsolete, until — later of sooner — perhaps — no, not perhaps — quite certainly: it will come. Who takes it out of you? Browse By Tag.
