Present quotes
Present
We hear the haunting presentiment of a dutiful middle age in the current reluctance of young people to select any option except the one they feel will impinge upon them the least.

- Sheehy, Gail
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

- Aristotle
Every serious-minded person knows that a large part of the effort required in moral discipline consists in the courage needed to acknowledge the unpleasant consequences of one's past and present acts.

- John Dewey
I want to change the pop world one sequin at a time. Artists tend to take themselves way too seriously and don't enjoy the fun of making an impact on culture. I just have a good time and sequins represent a good time.

- Lady Gaga
Our work is the presentation of our capabilities.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Our repeated failure to fully act as we would wish must not discourage us. It is the sincere intention that is the essential thing, and this will in time release us from the bondage of habits which at present seem almost insuperable.

- Thomas Troward
It takes one hour of preparation for each minute of presentation time.

- Burgraff, Wayne
What we learn only through the ears makes less impression upon our minds than what is presented to the trustworthy eye.

- Horace
Postmodernism is, almost by definition, a transitional cusp of social, cultural, economic and ideological history when modernism's high-minded principles and preoccupations have ceased to function, but before they have been replaced with a totally new system of values. It represents a moment of suspension before the batteries are recharged for the new millennium, an acknowledgment that preceding the future is a strange and hybrid interregnum that might be called the last gasp of the past.

- Adair, Gilbert
The media no longer ask those who know something to share that knowledge with the public. Instead they ask those who know nothing to represent the ignorance of the public and, in so doing, to legitimate it.

- Daney, Serge
Nothing is worth more than this day. You cannot relive yesterday. Tomorrow is still beyond your reach

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
That's not a lie, it's a terminological inexactitude. Also, a tactical misrepresentation.

- Haig, Alexander
The most dangerous aspect of present-day life is the dissolution of the feeling of individual responsibility. Mass solitude has done away with any difference between the internal and the external, between the intellectual and the physical.

- Montale, Eugenio
Nevertheless, in order to imbue civilization with sound principles and enliven it with the spirit of the gospel, it is not enough to be illumined with the gift of faith and enkindled with the desire of forwarding a good cause. For this end it is necessary to take an active part in the various organizations and influence them from within. And since our present age is one of outstanding scientific and technical progress and excellence, one will not be able to enter these organizations and work effectively from within unless he is scientifically competent, technically capable and skilled in the practice of his own profession.

- Pope John XXIII
In the nineteenth century the problem was that God is dead. In the twentieth century the problem is that man is dead.

- Fromm, Erich
The present is a rope stretched over the past. The secret to walking it is, you never look down.

- Sean Stewart
Culture's essential service to a religion is to destroy intellectual idolatry, the recurrent tendency in religion to replace the object of its worship with its present understanding and forms of approach to that object.

- Frye, Northrop
Never advise anyone to go to war or to get married. Write down the advice of him who loves you, though you like it not at present. He that has no children brings them up well.

- Proverb, Spanish
History is more or less bunk. It's tradition. We don't want tradition. We want to live in the present and the only history that is worth a tinker's dam is the history we made today.

- Henry Ford
If you want the present to be different from the past, study the past.

- Baruch de Spinoza
