Quote by Dan Buettner
I wake up in the morning and I see that flower, with the dew on its petals, and at the way it's folding out, and it makes me happy, she said. It's important to focus on the things in the here and now, I think. In a month, the flower will be shriveled and you will miss its beauty if you don't make the effort to do it now. Your life, eventually, is the same way.
This quote highlights the importance of embracing and appreciating the present moment. The speaker finds joy in observing a flower, acknowledging its transient beauty. By emphasizing the here and now, they urge us to avoid becoming consumed with future worries or regrets. Just as the flower eventually withers away, our lives also pass by swiftly. Hence, the quote prompts us to cherish the present, as that is where true fulfillment and happiness can be found.
It has often and confidently been asserted, that man's origin can never be known: but ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.
