“Choose – there’s only now, this moment, and it is passing no matter what you do with it. It will pass if you spend it exactly doing what you want, and it will pass if you spend it longing for another moment, and it will pass if you spend it wishing for another life. How could anything possibly be missing when this moment is everything?” – Sallie Tisdale
