Moment Quotes

Time flies and draws us with it. The moment in which I am speaking is already far from me.

Nicolas Boileau-Despraux

I firmly believe that any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear... is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.

Vince Lombardi

The moment you stop seeking pleasure in worldly things and become a true master of yourself, you will experience the essential reality of the Self. Then you will no longer have to seek God. God himself will come to you. This is the Divine law.

Sant Sri Asaramji Bapu

And wasn't that a great moment in baseball history, Holly Grace replied with withering sarcasm. Helen Keller pitching and Little Stevie Wonder catching.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Each bud flowers but once and each flower has but its minute of perfect beauty; so, in the garden of the soul each feeling has, as it were, its flowering instant, its one and only moment of expansive grace and radiant kingship. Each star passes but once in the night through the meridian over our heads and shines there but an instant; so, in the heaven of the mind each thought touches its zenith but once, and in that moment all its brilliancy and all its greatness culminate. Artist, poet, or thinker, if you want to fix and immortalize your ideas or your feelings, seize them at this precise and fleeting moment, for it is their highest point. Before it, you have but vague outlines or dim presentiments of them. After it you will have only weakened reminiscence or powerless regret; that moment is the moment of your ideal.

Henri-Frdric Amiel

George F. Kennan

In the stories about life and death, the soul often floats above the goodbye moment, hovering over police cars at highway accidents, or clinging like a spider to hospital room ceilings.

Albom, Mitch

Jiddu Krishnamurti

We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.

Carl Gustav Jung

Musical people always want one to be perfectly dumb at the very moment when one is longing to be perfectly deaf.

Oscar Wilde

After another moment's silence, she mumbled that I was peculiar, that that was probably why she loved me but that one day I might disgust her for the very same reason.

Albert Camus

Our hour is marked, and no one can claim a moment of life beyond what fate has predestined.

Napolon Bonaparte

The moment you realize yourself as the dreamer and the world as your own dream, you will attain salvation.

Sant Sri Asaramji Bapu

Alienation is no longer a psychological aberration; it is defined by a historical moment.

Michel Foucault

There is no moment like the present. The man who will not execute his resolutions when they are fresh upon him can have no hope from them afterwards: they will be dissipated, lost, and perish in the hurry and scurry of the world, or sunk in the slough of indolence.
