Elusive now

If you don’t understand the value of being alive, then everything is all out of phase. No amount of wisdom is going to come and make any difference.

If you don’t understand the value…. And people say, “Now.” Right? I have said, “now.” And one day I was thinking about “now.” “Now” is the most elusive thing there is. Because by the time I say “now,” it’s not now anymore.

If you don’t understand the meaning of “now,” what is the point in trying to understand the meaning of tomorrow? Because you would be pleasantly surprised that tomorrow too will be just full of a bunch of “nows”—and none different.
