Quotes on the Present Moment & Respect for Other Lives

“There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment. A man’s whole life is a succession of moment after moment. There will be nothing else to do, and nothing else to pursue. Live being true to the single purpose of the moment.” ― Yamamoto Tsunetomo, Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai

“Time is a steam of consciousness.” ― Joyce Liow, global promoter of internal controls as a source of competitive advantage for organizations; and chef and food writer who spreads the magic of the “first bite” when novice cooks attempt something (edible) they never thought possible

“I must interpret the life about me as I interpret the life that is my own. My life is full of meaning to me. The life around me must be full of significance to itself. If I am to expect others to respect my life, then I must respect the other life I see, however strange it may be to mine. And not only other human life, but all kinds of life: life above mine, if there be such life; life below mine, as I know it to exist.”  ― Albert Schweitzer, German philosopher, philanthropist, physician, theologian, missionary, and musicologist; who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952
