Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

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

I asked myself about the present: how wide it was, how deep it was, how much was mine to keep.

Any one reflecting upon the thought he has of the delight, which any present or absent thing is apt to produce in him, has the idea we call love.

Who controls the past controls the future. who controls the present controls the past.

The thought of only being a creature of the present and past was troubling. I longed for a future too, with hope in it. the desire to be free, awakened my determination to act, to think, and to speak.

We waste our energy fighting one another, instead of presenting a common front to the world.
