'Now' is the operative word. Everything you put in your way is just a method of putting off the hour when you could actually be doing your dream. You don't need endless time and perfect conditions. Do it now. Do it today. Do it for twenty minutes and watch your heart start beating.
I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness or abilities that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
Henry Ward Beecher
We steal if we touch tomorrow. It is God's.
The future is always beginning now.
Forever is composed of nows.
Rejoice in the things that are present; all else is beyond thee.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Nothing is worth more than this day.
Robert M. Young
People are always asking about the good old days. I say, why don't you say the good 'now' days?
H. G. Wells
We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.
I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person.
