love this. it makes so much sense. if i waited, what will happen?
words to live by!
one of life’s most important concepts.
Wow- so true
will remember this
Dumbest thing ever, how can you say “words to live by”? Come on now, how are these words to live by? Are you gonna wait around for the future for your whole life? Shut up.
ur stupid. this quote is saying not to wat around because if u do the future get shorter and shorter. think before you speak jordan
Think of it like this:
Each moment spent waiting for the future is a moment less of the future you have to spend.
I love how Jordan says the quote is stupid because you shouldn’t wait around for the future forever, yet that’s totally the point of the quote. Just throwing it out there.
It paraphrases: “A good plan today, is better than a perfect plan tomorrow”.
If you invest your present for a better future, then you might get that grand future, but will it be long enough to justify the loss of present time?
Its still a pretty silly qoute. No one waits for the future… You may wait for things to happen in the future but you can’t wait for the future, there is no such thing. You live in the present, for the present. I think a more apt way of putting this is; “If you sit around and wait for things to happen, you’ll die without ever doing anything. Except sitting …” Not as eloqouent but it makes more sense
OMG!! This quote is so inspirational! I think I’m going to surf the web for the next eight hours to find other inspirational quotes that tell me how to live life!!
i like this a lot.
i’m in a relationship where i am completely unhappy and i know she is also…but neither of us end it…
if i wait til for the future…assuming it will get better and we’ll be happy.
then i lose all of this present time that i could have been happy, not knowing if there will even be a future….
i like this quote tho. makes me want to do what i know i want to do. NOW.
I don’t think you can argue with this idea.
I love this quote. so true. Live for now!
This is why relying on the concept of time will fuck up your life.
gives me chills.
The future is whizzing by every second. It is called now and soon will be the past. The only reason to try to look into the future, if you can, is to see forks in the road and then prepare for them the best you can. Life is nothing but a bunch of forks in the road. Some forks are dramatic and eventful while most are rather mundane. Your mom woke up one morning, for example, and decided not to abort you. Lucky you. You made it through the first fork in your road through life alive.
How true every minute counts. Who knows what may happen tomorrow. I dream for wonderful things in the future, but I live for today.
hey i dont like that…
The only time warp is the present; for every second is in the past and the future is happening now
– Albert Einstien
I’m finding myself having to re-learn this lesson every single day!
In other words, fuck, fight or hold the light….
we don’t need to make our own furure… ~God~ makes it for us.
This is really mind blowing quote. Concisely, it says the base of life.
it’s true, the more we wait the longer it takes to arrive
Yes! Go get it!
So true, we often wish our days away and we really shouldn’t.
“Best start putting first things first.”
Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand
You can’t flip it over and start again
Take every breathe God gives you for what it’s worth.
Naw, don’t blink
Life Goes Faster Than You Think
Is it possible to h8 the internet & <3 it @ the same time??
“I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.” -Albert Einstein
I hate simple eye candy quotes like this. There’s nothing to ponder.
awesome quote.. (:
every moment you spend reading insipid horseshit like this is a moment you could be doing something worthwhile.
[...] 1: Image of the day [...]
wow this is so vary true
soooooooo, Jordan, you’re really stupid. how embarrassing for you to call everyone stupid while you completely misinterpreted the quote yourself. shut up
Not one of my faves but gets the thought process going. Future is uncertain and if spend our time just waiting for it, we may miss out on the beauty of the present. All we can do is live in the present, plan for the future and the rest will take care of itself.
what an inspirational Quote!!!, i will never forget this…!!!
that is one of the most fuckin awsome things i ever read.
