Life is made of so many moments that mean nothing. Then one day, a single moment comes along to define every second that comes after. Such moments are tests of courage, of strength.
The scariest moment is always just before you start.
There are moments that you’ll remember for the rest of your life and there are moments that you think you’ll remember for the rest of your life, and it’s not often they turn out to be the same moment.
Ye have a moment of surprise, lass. Use it!
We do not remember days, we remember moments.
This is a brief life, but in its brevity it offers us some splendid moments, some meaningful adventures.
There are moments when the walls of the mind grow thin; when nothing is unabsorbed.
The truth is that human beings have neither kindness, nor faith, nor charity beyond what serves to increase the pleasure of the moment. They hunt in packs. Their packs scour the desert and vanish screaming into the wilderness.
The moment was all; the moment was enough.
The Moment changes. One must be ready to change with it. Or otherwise left high and dry. Adapt.
The chance which now seems lost may present itself at the last moment.
That’s the curse of the reading class. We can be seduced by a good story even at the least opportune moments.
