„An orange on the table
Your robe on the carpet
And you in my bed
Sweet present of the present
Coolness of the night
Warmth of my life.“

„My life lies beyond the present.“

—  Henry Ward Beecher American clergyman and activist 1813 - 1887

Origine: Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 109
Contesto: Christ is the ideal of what a man should be. He has my ideal portrait, as it were, drawn out in His own thought and feeling. There is an exaltation and a grandeur for myself in the time to come, which Christ knows, and I do not; but I am following after. I am pressing up toward that thought that Christ has of what I am and ought to be; and I am determined that I will apprehend it as Christ Himself does. Not that I have it; but I will strive for it. My manhood is in the future. My life lies beyond the present.

„Have you found your life distasteful?
My life did and does smack sweet.“

—  Robert Browning English poet and playwright of the Victorian Era 1812 - 1889

"At the 'Mermaid'"(1876) <!-- line 72 - 80 -->
Contesto: Have you found your life distasteful?
My life did and does smack sweet.
Was your youth of pleasure wasteful?
Mine I save and hold complete.
Do your joys with age diminish?
When mine fail me, I'll complain.
Must in death your daylight finish?
My sun sets to rise again.

„Your roots are not there. They are in the present; and you should reach up into the other life.“

—  Henry Ward Beecher American clergyman and activist 1813 - 1887

Origine: Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 566
Contesto: A man is a fool who sits looking backward from himself in the past. Ah! what shallow, vain conceit there is in man! Forget the things that are behind. That is not where you live. Your roots are not there. They are in the present; and you should reach up into the other life.

„You think that your attention is in the present moment when it's actually taken up completely by time. You cannot be both unhappy and fully present in the Now. What you refer to as your "life" should more accurately be called your "life situation."“

—  Eckhart Tolle, libro The Power of Now

It is psychological time: past and future. Certain things in the past didn't go the way you wanted them to go. You are still resisting what happened in the past, and now you are resisting what is. Hope is what keeps you going, but hope keeps you focused on the future, and this continued focus perpetuates your denial of the Now and therefore your unhappiness. p. 43
