The word 'now' is like a bomb thrown through the window, and it ticks.
      - Arthur Miller

This moment is a flower too fair and brief.
      - Thomas Moore

Let any man examine his thoughts, and he will find them ever occupied with the past or the future. We scarcely think at all of the present; or if we do, it is only to borrow the light which it gives, for regulating the future. The present is never our object; the past and the present we use as means; the future only is our end. Thus, we never live, we only hope to live.
      - Blaise Pascal

The present will not long endure.
      - Peter Pindar (pseudonym of Dr. John Wolcot) (Wolcott)

Make use of time, if thou lovest eternity; know yesterday cannot be recalled, to-morrow cannot be assured: to-day is only thine; which if thou procrastinate, thou losest; which lost, is lost forever: one to-day is worth two to-morrows.
      - Francis Quarles

Look upon every day, O youth, as the whole of life, not merely as a section, and enjoy the present without wishing through haste, to spring on to another.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

He who neglects the present moment throws away all he has.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

Each present joy or sorrow seems the chief.
      - William Shakespeare

The present eye praises the present object.
      - William Shakespeare

One of our poets--which is it?--speaks of an everlasting now.
      - Robert Southey

The present hour is always wealthiest when it is poorer than the future ones, as that is the pleasantest site which affords the pleasantest prospect.
      - Henry David Thoreau

If we stand in the openings of the present moment, with all the length and breadth of our faculties unselfishly adjusted to what it reveals, we are in the best condition to receive what God is always ready to communicate.
      - Thomas Cogswell Upham

It we stand in the openings of the present moment, with all the length and breadth of our faculties unselfishly adjusted to what it reveals, we are in the best condition to receive what God is always ready to communicate.
      - Thomas Cogswell Upham

The Present, the Present is all thou hast
  For thy sure possessing;
    Like the patriarch's angel hold it fast
      Till it gives its blessing.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

What is really momentous and all-important with us is the present, by which the future is shaped and colored.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

These feeble and fastidious times.
      - William Wordsworth
