The old begin to complain of the conduct of the young when they themselves are no longer able to set a bad example.

Across all of time

Look back, look ahead, and act now. Understand where you came from and how you got here, choose where you wish to go, and proceed.

Learn from what has already happened to you and to others. Let your thoughts of the past give you inspiration, appreciation, caution, wisdom, and insight.

Then consider your intentions, your dreams, hopes, and goals for the future. Seek to understand how all you’ve learned and experienced can connect you with all you wish to experience.

You reside right now within a powerful nexus between past and future. What you do today can lead to fulfillment of the potential that’s always been building in you.

Your opportunity in this moment is not merely of this moment. That opportunity encompasses all that has come before, what is yet to come, and what is right now in front of you.

Impress upon yourself that the significance of what you do now is not just now, but is spread across all of time. Then, with respect, humility, appreciation and the highest expectations, give your very best to the moment.

— Ralph Marston
