The Real Condition of Humanity

The dance of life occurs not yesterday or tomorrow, but only here at the still point that is the present. This truth is simple, self-evident, but difficult to accept, for we sentimentalize the past and wallow in it, while we endure the moment and in every waking hour dream of the future.

What you hope to do in the future is of no meaning if you fail to do the wise thing, the good thing, moment by moment by moment, here at the still point, here in the dance of life.

-Dean Koontz
