This Present Moment



“Your past is behind you, learn from it.
Your future is ahead of you, prepare for it.
Your present is here, live in it, 
Even this present moment.”

Thomas S. Monson

  1. Everything about this quote is true in every way. The things you have done in the past have affected you in either a positive or negative way and you should learn from those mistakes or good things so they can help you out in the future. You live in the present so enjoy it and keep on doing the right so that you future can be full of good and prosperity. Prepare for the future and learn from your past while living in the present and above all else choose the right and do good.

  2. I think this is a great quote by Mr. Monson because it entitles being focused. Meaning there's always a time for everything and you just have to be patient and work with what you have now. For example, if this whole week is your final week at school and the following week you're going to throw a big party to celebrate the end of the week you have to focus and passing the finals at school and not think about who or what's gonna happen at the party next week. Think wise to act wise; and focus!

  4. This comment inspires me a lot because it is very true. What it is saying is that you should look at your past and learn from it. If you did something wrong then prepare for the future so that you don't do it again. Live in the present. But prepare for the future. Choose the Right.

  6. I like this quote because its very true. The past is gone and all you can do from it is use what you have learned. Maybe you made some mistakes that you can learn from or just things you learned how to do. But what really counts is the present moment. The future is what you live the present moment for and prepare for what comes after you have lived the current moment. Living and focusing on the present and not worrying about the past or the future can help you enjoy your life and also learn more and that can help you make a better future. =)

  7. I love this quote, it may be the best i think,
    for me this quote talks about your three
    stages of life, your past, present, and future,
    and all those are very important because they
    all involve yourself.
    Your past is way long gone, and you can't do
    anything about it, if you did mistakes you can't fix
    them but of course you will learn from them and in the present
    you can try not to make the same mistakes.
    Your future you can always plan it but sometimes
    the way you plan things may not come out as perfect.
    The past is the past, the future is still not
    here, make your present be the one that decide what your
    future will look like.
    Always make the best out of yourself<33

  11. This quote is very true. Our past is behind us and we should learn from it, so we won't do the same mistakes. Our future is ahead of us and we should prepare for it now, we should choose the right now so our future can be a better future. Always choose the right!

  12. This Statement Really Speaks To Me! Your Past Can Not Be Change But You Can Study Your Choices And Mistakes! If You Know What You Have Been Threw Then You Will Know What Your Going To Go Threw In The Future! You Can Have A Little More Wisdom Stepping Into The Future Than You Had In The Past! And The Present Is Now! You Must Choose Accordingly What You Want Because You Know Your Past And The Future is Coming So Just Do What You Think Is Right Now!

  13. Alejandra P: According to this three statements we have to learn about each moment we have because it might mean something to us if we pay attention. Our past is behind us so we have to learn from the mistakes we did. Our future is almost here so we have to be prepare and learn form it too. Our present is our present, we have to live each moment because we don't know what might happen the day of tomorrow.

  15. I agree with this quote the past is the past, learn from mistakes you made before so you won't do them again. Live in the present not the past. Always prepare for the future.

  16. What this quote is trying to say is that you don't have regrets in the past because you cant change them but learn from them so shell benefit from it. The future is in front of so be ready for it so you can succeeded. The present is here so just so live in it this moment because soon it will become the past. So don't regret the things you done because those regrets made you who you are today, as well as preparing for the future because its not to far away and live for the moment thats present because soon it well become the past.

  17. I really felt this qoute because there is no day like the present to live in. Learn from your past mistakes and learn not to do them again in the future, so choose the right and you'll do good in the present by just following CTR, but you cant have a successful future without doing whats right i the present. CTR ALWAYS!!!!
