Live today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Just today. Inhabit your moments. Don’t rent them out to tomorrow. Do you know what you’re doing when you spend a moment wondering how things are going to turn out with Perry? You’re cheating yourself out of today. Today is calling to you, trying to get your attention, but you’re stuck on tomorrow, and today trickles away like water down a drain. You wake up the next morning and that today you wasted is gone forever. It’s now yesterday. Some of those moments may have had wonderful things in store for you , but now you’ll never know. — Jerry Spinelli

We are dealing with the best-educated generation in history. But they’ve got a brain dressed up with nowhere to go. Science is all metaphor. In the information age, you don’t teach philosophy as they did after feudalism. You perform it. If Aristotle were alive today he’d have a talk show. If you don’t like what you are doing, you can always pick up your needle and move to another groove. If you take the game of life seriously, if you take your nervous system seriously, if you take your sense organs seriously, if you take the energy process seriously, you must turn on, tune in, and drop out. — Timothy Leary

It is better to allow our lives to speak for us than our words. God did not bear the cross only two thousand years ago. He bears it today, and he dies and is resurrected from day to day.

Do not, then, preach the God of history, but show him as he lives today through you. — Mahatma Gandhi

Leonardo da Vinci was lucky to be born the same year that Johannes Gutenberg opened his printing shop. As a young person, he could get information about whatever struck his curiosity.

We are always getting ready to live but never living. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Evolutionary biologists often appeal to parsimony when they seek to explain why organisms match with respect to a given trait. For example, why do almost all the organisms that are alive today on our planet use the same genetic code? If they share a common ancestor, the code could have evolved just once and then been inherited from the most recent common ancestor that present organisms share. On the other hand, if organisms in different species share no common ancestors, the code must have evolved repeatedly. — Elliott Sober

The highest development was in the Egyptian and Cabalistic systems, and it was blended with Christian thought in the schools of the Neo-Platonists and the Gnostics…Its studies were only kept alive during the Dark Ages among the Jews who were the chief exponents of its Cabalistic aspect…and it is still alive today. — Dion Fortune

Success to me is self-determined, the life I live today, to come from a kid strung out on angel dust, homeless, at some points sleeping in the street. No money, not knowing where the next meal was coming from. No sex, no relationships, people that didn’t love me, didn’t care about me, to where I am today… that’s successful. When I signed my record deal I always wanted to be respected by my peers for my ability and my skill level. — Joe Budden

The sensibilities and the emotions of Muslims must be taken into consideration in the context in which we live today. — Anjem Choudary

We do have to think seriously about conservation now, although it is chilling to realize there are catch-and-release fishermen alive today who don’t know how to clean and fry a fish. — John Gierach

To me there is no past or future in my art. If a work of art cannot live always in the present it must not be considered at all. The art of the Greeks, of the Egyptians, of the great painters who lived in other times, is not an art of the past; perhaps it is more alive today than it ever was. — Pablo Picasso

It’s time to start living the life you’ve imagined. — Henry James

What I am concerned about in this fast-moving world in a time of crises, both in foreign and domestic affairs, is not so much a program as a spirit of approach, not so much a mind as a heart.

If Melanchthon were alive today, he might not weep because of controversies that surround the Lord’s Supper, but he might well sorrow because of our indifference to its meaning and importance. — Erwin W. Lutzer

Our lives today are not conducted in linear terms. They are much more quantified; a stream of random events is taking place. — J. G. Ballard

Maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it. But for some of us there’s only today. And the truth is, you never really know. — Lauren Oliver

There isn’t one African-American alive today who’s treated as three-fifths of a person like it was in the past. — Rush Limbaugh

In the past, destruction of your neighbour might have been considered a victory, but today we are all interdependent. We live in a global economy; we face problems like climate change that affect us all. The 7 billion human beings alive today belong to one human family. In the context that others’ interests are in our interest and our interest is in their interest, the use of force is self-destructive. — Dalai Lama

I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk. — Tony Robbins

Today, people idolize athletes and celebrities – and yes, highly successful and visionary business people like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, but not the innovators who perhaps have not seen such high-flying levels of success.

If Edgar Allan Poe were alive today, his agent would be constantly slapping him upside the head with tightly rolled copies of his brilliant short stories and novelettes, yelling, ‘Full-length novels, you moron!

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. — Abbie Hoffman

The royalists of the economic order have conceded that political freedom was the business of the government, but they have maintained that economic slavery was nobody’s business. They granted that the government could protect the citizen in his right to vote, but they denied that the government could do anything to protect the citizen in his right to work and his right to live. Today we stand committed to the proposition that freedom is no half-and-half affair. If the average citizen is guaranteed equal opportunity in the polling place, he must have equal opportunity in the market place. — Franklin D. Roosevelt

We have to live today by what truth we can get today and be ready tomorrow to call it falsehood. — William James

There were successful ways of expressing the attitude and less successful ways. I think that spirit is very much alive today actually. That’s what a certain generation of curators is alert to or on the look out for: an attitude. And it is a brilliant and moving spectacle when it happens. That suspension of disbelief is something that we all respond to. But it’s hard to capture the butterfly without tearing the wings off of it. — David Salle

As long as we continue to think we will be happy in the future, we will never be happy in the moment, and that is the same as saying that we will never be happy.

There is no distance on this earth as far away as yesterday. — Robert Nathan

Part of what we want to do with the Heroic Imagination Project is to get kids to think about what it means to be a hero. The most basic concept of a hero is socially constructed: It differs from culture to culture and changes over time. Think of Christopher Columbus. Until recently, he was a hero. Now he’s a genocidal murderer! If he were alive today, he’d say, What happened? I used to be a hero, and now people are throwing tomatoes at me! — Philip Zimbardo

In the past, I always used to be looking for answers. Today, I know there are only questions. So I just live. — Sarah Brightman

You are what you choose to be today. Not what you’ve chosen to be before. — Wayne Dyer

Our current gun culture simply ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead… What I believe is, if he [Belcher] didn’t possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today… Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it. — Bob Costas
