Carpe Diem Quotes
Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.
Live each day as if it`s your last`, that was the conventional advice, but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained or you felt a bit glandy? It just wasn`t practical. Better by far to simply try and be good and courageous and bold and to make a difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you.
I'm not saying it's wrong to plan for the future. I'm warning not to make today a victim of those plans.
If you are not in the now you are nowhere.
Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn`t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I`m going to be happy in it.
Real generosity towards the future lies in giving all to the present.
There is only one day left, always starting over: It is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk.
Happiness, knowledge, not in another place but this place, not for another hour but this hour.
No day but today.
