Dietrich Bonhoffer

"In the whole of world history there is only one really significant hour — the present." 

— Dietrich Bonhoeffer
German Theologian/Writer
1906 - 1945

We are often told to live in the moment, but few of us are able to achieve this for long.  We either disappear into memories of the past or become lost in dreams of the future.  The challenge is to spend more and more time in the present, because only in the present can we take action and accomplish something.  Only in the present can we paint, sculpt, write, draw, or create.  Cultivate the present.  Learn to live in the moment.  Learn to love where you are now.  Some people inhabit the past because they think life was better then.  Other inhabit the future because they hope the future will be better.  Only those who learn to spend most of their time in the present will achieve their dreams.
