Present

“Be in the moment. Period. Just be there. Because if you get all like, ‘Oh I got to do this big thing.’ It just never works. It just doesn’t work. You’ve just got to let go. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. Whatever you do is ok, just be truthful, honest, real, and that’s all you can ask for.” -Robert De Niro

“The reason we want to go on and on is because we live in an impoverished present.” -Alan Watts

“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why we call it ‘The Present’ –Eleanor Roosevelt

For the actor…

Not…”Was I good?” Or “Did I do it right?”

Rather…”Was I present, alive, in the moment?” (And only you can answer this question.)

If yes, you can do no wrong.

P.S. – In the last week, we’ve sadly lost three giants in entertainment. R.I.P. Mr. Poitier, Mr. Bogdanovich and Ms. White.
