“The future was with Fate. The present was our own.”
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is an amazing writer and his literature is still popular today. The fact that his literature is still quoteable today to me illustrates a timelessness in a way. We often spend a lot of time worrying about the past and the future. We have about as much control over what is going to happen in the future as we do in changing the past. All we can do is live in the present. Our actions in the present may set the path for the future, but we are unable to know what the future is going to be. So live each moment and focus on the present for life doesn’t happen in the past or the future, but in the now.
