"It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one."

George Harrison (via quotes-shape-us)

"I’ve been very lucky; when you’ve been lucky, you want to give some of that back to the people around you. I can’t give away luck, but I can give away the notion that if you work hard and try to do the right thing, then you’re more likely to be lucky."

The ever-wise John Maeda in a Q&A with The Great Discontent.

Pair with some excellent advice on how to make your own luck
