Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.
Tomorrow is only found in the calendar of fools.
The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, caliber, and future of an individual. If the people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honour for me.

I don’t try to describe the future. I try to prevent it.

Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.
We are not here to curse the darkness, but to light the candle that can guide us thru that darkness to a safe and sane future.
No dream is too big. No challenge is too great. Nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach.
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.
Depression is the inability to construct a future.
The youth is the hope of our future.
True happiness is… to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future.
