In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts; they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty.

Live life now

If you can’t enjoy and appreciate now you can’t enjoy ever. If you’re not grateful for whatever you have you make it impossible to have whatever you desire.

This is life now. Give your love, attention, focus and effort to it, now.

Certainly you can name many ways that things could be better. Yet the point from which you must start to make those improvements is now.

Treasure all the good you’ve experienced in the past. But don’t long endlessly for it to return, because it won’t.

Look forward to the potential rewards that the future will bring. But don’t wish that you could instantly jump there because that would trivialize those rewards and make them worthless.

Live life now, with all its memories, all its possibilities, all its challenges, all its opportunities. Do something great and meaningful with the immense potential that now surrounds you.

— Ralph Marston
