If we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we shall find that we have lost the future.

Winston Churchill

Whenever two people meet, there are really six people present. There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other person sees him, and each man as he really is.

William James

How you present yourself is how others will value you.

Paul Arden

How we behave is a balancing act between our future and present selves. In the future, we want to be fit, but in the present, we want the candy bar. In the future, we want to be a well-rounded, wellinformed intellectual virtuoso, but right now we want to watch Jersey Shore. Behavioral economists call this present bias - the gap between your preferences for your future self and your preferences in the current moment.

Eli Pariser

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.

Henry David Thoreau

Don`t be afraid of your past. Learn from it so it can empower your present.

Steve Maraboli

Van Wilder (movie)

The present system means joyless drudgery, semi- starvation, rags and premature death; and they vote for it and uphold it. Let them have what they vote for! Let them drudge and let them starve!

Robert Tressell

I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies to another this right, makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.

Thomas Paine

I steeled myself to focus only on the present yet remain alert to what might come next.

Nicholas Sparks

Laws alone cannot secure freedom of expression; in order that every man may present his views without penalty there must be a spirit of tolerance in the entire population.

Albert Einstein

It isn`t what you did in the past that will affect the present. It`s what you do in the present that will redeem the past and thereby change the future.

Paulo Coelho
