How many ways can I say the same thing? (by anon)

Let's see how many different ways I can say the same thing

1. If by living forever we mean a feeling of timelessness we must get used to living in the present.

-Ludwig Wittgenstein

2. Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.

-Jesus Christ

3. Try to worry about the here and now, the future will take care of itself somehow.

-"Life in One Day"

4. The past is just memories; the future is just what we expect to happen. There really is only now.

-I forgot who said that one, actually

Do you get the point? Live in the present. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is always coming but never comes.

  1. It seems that we receive this same message an awful lot in our daily lives, to "Live in the present". But rarely does the message go beyond a simple quote.

    We get the point. We've heard it a thousand times. I want something more now. I would much rather have practical advice on HOW to "live in the present." However one could attempt to define that.
