In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time.

Nor is it right to say there are three times: past, present and future. Perhaps it would be more correct to say: there are three times: a present of things past, a present of things present, a present of things future.

The time present of things past is memory; the time present of things present is direct experience; the time present of things future is expectation.

What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not a goal.
