Quotable Sunday

Sunday, December 6, 2009

Each year the days seem to pass by a little more quickly. Perhaps, it's having children, perhaps it's getting older, perhaps it's a lack of sleep...but, whatever the reason, it seems more important than ever to live now, enjoy each moment and make the most of each day. Time, especially with the ones we love, seems to pass all to quickly.

With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

One problem with gazing too frequently into the past is that we may turn around to find the future has run out on us. ~Michael Cibenko

Don't let the past steal your present. ~Cherralea Morgen

There is no distance on this earth as far away as yesterday. ~Robert Nathan, So Love Returns

You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present. ~Jan Glidewell

Would you keep a chive on your tooth just because you enjoyed last night's potato? ~From the television show Boston Common

I have memories - but only a fool stores his past in the future. ~David Gerrold

No man is rich enough to buy back his past. ~Oscar Wilde

Living the past is a dull and lonely business; looking back strains the neck muscles, causing you to bump into people not going your way. ~Edna Ferber

The past is never there when you try to go back. It exists, but only in memory. To pretend otherwise is to invite a mess. ~Chris Cobbs

Waste not fresh tears over old griefs. ~Euripides, Alexander

The past is a guidepost, not a hitching post. ~L. Thomas Holdcroft

I need neither future nor past, but to learn to take today not too fast. ~Jeb Dickerson, www.howtomatter.co
