A few of my favorite Thich Nhat Hanh quotes to start out the new year:
Life is available only in the present. That is why we should walk in such a way that every step can bring us to the here and the now.
It is possible to live happily in the here and now. So many conditions of happiness are available—more than enough for you to be happy right now. You don’t have to run into the future in order to get more.
Many people are alive but don’t touch the miracle of being alive.
Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It is a daily practice… No one can prevent you from being aware of each step you take or each breath in and breath out.
