The right man is the one who seizes the moment.

Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life.

Live now, believe me, wait not till tomorrow:
Gather today the roses of life.


The years teach much which the days never know.

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

The sun is new each day.

There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called Yesterday and the other is called Tomorrow. Today is the right day to Love, Believe, Do and mostly Live.

Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life.

I am simply what I am, or I begin to be that. I live in the present. I only remember the past, and anticipate the future. I love to live.

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

Quotes for: day


The best way to begin each day well is to think upon awakening whether we could not give at least one person pleasure on this day.





The most completely lost of all days is that on which one has not laughed.





A day without laughter is a day wasted.





You cannot hold the day back, but you can avoid wasting it.
  





As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.





It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.

Now or never.
  





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.





Finding the right words at the right moment is action.
