One day at a time – this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering
Ida Scott Taylor

Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.
Bil Keane

The past is behind, learn from it.
The future is ahead, prepare for it.
The present is here, live it.
Thomas S. Monson

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.

Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gizmos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.

    What stunning plants (flowers?) love the color and the quotes you added are excellent…I used to tell my girls to treat the past like a library, a place to visit and reflect but not a place to live. Excellent image and words!

  • in fact, they are aquarium plants (and yes, they were underwater and behing a thick pannel of glass). I thought the colors complemented each other nicely. as for the quotes… glad you like them, but I like yours more !!! lol
    thank you karen !
