Thought is the blossom; language the bud; action the fruit behind it.

Only now

Some of the opportunities you have today, you may not have again for a very long time, if ever. Treasure them, appreciate them, live them now when you can.

When you’re able to make a difference, make it. When you’re able to give kindness, give it.

Looking back from tomorrow, or a year in the future, what will you wish you had done today? Right now is your one chance to make that wish come true.

What, also, will you wish you had refrained from doing? That’s another wish you can fulfill in advance, right now.

This is when your life is lived. This is when you give love and value to all you love and value.

Make the time, do the work, go to the trouble. Today’s opportunities are yours right now, and only now.

— Ralph Marston
