Present Quotes

God is not present in idols. Your feelings are your god. The soul is your temple.

Chanakya

Optimists enrich the present, enhance the future, challenge the improbable and attain the impossible

William Arthur

Faith, indeed, has up to the present not been able to move real mountains . . . But it can put mountains where there are none.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Equations seem like treasures, spotted in the rough by some discerning individual, plucked and examined, placed in the grand storehouse of knowledge, passed on from generation to generation. This is so convenient a way to present scientific discovery, and so useful for textbooks, that it can be called the treasure-hunt picture of knowledge.

Robert P. Crease

It is a simple but sometimes forgotten truth that the greatest enemy to present joy and high hopes is the cultivation of retrospective bitterness.

Robert G. Menzies

George William Norris

Climate change is so big that people who study it.. and many do.. need to speak to it. They must present scientific papers, they must appear in public, they must speak to the media and we must hear their voices. In order to get policy right, policymakers.. governments.. need to make decisions based on sound science.

Peter Garrett

In silence lies the ability to listen; to listen to ourselves, to others and to God. Listening is a lost art. Without it we cannot communicate, we cannot relate to each other and so we cannot live life meaningfully. We need to learn to listen. Sitting in silence allows us to listen to ourselves and to understand. This silence can heal. The worries, the pain can be healed when we listen. Spiritual medicine is ever-present in the soul. Whenever we need it, to whatever extent we need it, we can find it within.

Benjamin Franklin

The truth is that a vast restructuring of our society is needed if remedies are to become available to the average person. Without that restructuring the good will that holds society together will be slowly dissipated. . . . It is that sense of futility which permeates the present series of protests and dissents. Where there is a persistent sense of futility, there is violence; and that is where we are today.

William Orville Douglas

The people who are absent are the ideal; those who are present seem to be quite commonplace.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Absent in body, but present in spirit.

Bible

You have to be open-minded when those early opportunities present themselves; take advantage of them whether theyre going to make you a lot of money or not.

Rachael Ray

Everyone is their own kind of lesbian. To think there's a certain way to dress or present yourself in the world is just one more stereotype we have to fit into.

Portia de Rossi

In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present
