power and control

“When we attempt to exercise power or control over someone else, we cannot avoid giving that person the very same power or control over us.”

the present

“Tomorrow and plans for tomorrow can have no significance at all unless you are in full contact with the reality of the present, since it is in the present and only in the present that you live. There is no other reality than present reality, so that, even if one were to live for endless ages, to live for the future would be to miss the point everlastingly.”
