Yesterday we published an awesome list of quotes about living in the moment, and we were so inspired we thought we’d share even more.

1. “She worked her toes into the sand, feeling the tiny delicious pain of the friction of tiny chips of silicon against the tender flesh between her toes. That’s life. It hurts, it’s dirty, and it feels very, very good.”
― Orson Scott Card, Children of the Mind

2. “I don’t know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.”
― Abraham Lincoln

3. “Leave the problems of God to God and karma to karma. Today you’re here and nothing you do will change that. Today you are alive and here and honored and blessed with good fortune. Look at this suset, it’s beautiful, neh? This sunset exists. Tomorrow does not exist. There is only now. Please look. It is so beautiful and it will never happen ever again, never, not this sunset, never in all infinity. Lose yourself in it, make yourself one with nature and do not worry about karma, yours, mine, or that of the village.”
― James Clavell

4. “Nobody knows how things will turn out, that’s why they go ahead and play the game…You give it your all and sometimes amazing things happen, but it’s hardly ever what you expect.”
― Gennifer Choldenko, Al Capone Does My Shirts

5. “You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.”
― Henry David Thoreau

6. “Why do they not teach you that time is a finger snap and an eye blink, and that you should not allow a moment to pass you by without taking joyous, ecstatic note of it, not wasting a single moment of its swift, breakneck circuit?”
― Pat Conroy

7. “Giving someone gifts cannot equate to spending quality time with them. Never replace time with things. Time is precious and once lost cannot be regained. Make every moment count…you never know when your time will be up.”
― Kemi Sogunle

8. “Not everyone is born to fulfill an heroic role. The only realistic ambition is to live in the present. And sometimes, quite often in fact, this is more than enough to keep one busy. Time, which was once squandered, must now be given over to the actual, the possible, and perhaps that evanescent hope of a good outcome which never deserts one, and which should never be abandoned.”
― Anita Brookner

9. “Don’t spend your days sitting around waiting for something to happen. Get outside and make it happen!Live like a warrior, be at one with nature, fearless in the moment….because this moment will never happen again so don’t waste it!”
― Karen Gibbs

10. “There is nothing more powerful than this moment your living, now, more powerful than your convictions and truths, spend time with what your heart desires and souls screams for. Life ends a day before we know it, it’s so important to chase everything that matters to you.”
― Nikki Rowe
