Mastery of the moment is mastery over life.

Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.

The world is generally so restless, that men scarcely ever think of the present time, and the instant they are now actually living, but of those in which they are to live. So that we are always in a disposition to live in future, but never to live now.

Later it will be too late. Our life is now.

If, then, my awareness of the past and future makes me less aware of the present, I must begin to wonder whether I am actually living in the real world.

A ship in harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.

View quote

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.
