“I can feel guilty about the past, apprehensive about the future,but only in the present can I act.The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.”

– Abraham Maslow (Psychologist, founder of the theory the hierarchy of needs)

“The paradox is that, while a concern with past and future is obviously central to psychological functioning, to behave as though one were indeed in the past or future, as many do, pollutes the lively possibilities of existence.”
