Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.

Life is always now

Every great thing that has ever been achieved has been achieved one moment at a time. There is no other way.

The small, seemingly insignificant moments of each day are the building blocks of greatness and fulfillment. The more respect and sincere presence you give to each moment, the more rich and fulfilling your life will be.

The opportunities in life do not come someday, in some vague and distant future. They are here and they are now.

This hour, on this day, may feel like just a small slice of your life. It is, however, the most important part of your life because it is the part you are now living.

The joy you postpone until later is joy you’ll not ever have the pleasure of experiencing. Work you put off until another time is work that will never get done.

Life is always now, so always live it now. The full extent of life’s richness is now, so make that richness yours.

— Ralph Marston
