Seize the Moment

Life, they say, is for those who are brave enough to grasp the nettle, and not let the moment drift by. The present moment is all-important and poets galore have spoken of living in the moment, instead of depending on the dead past or the unborn future.

'Seize the moment' or 'carpe diem' is an oft-used phrase which was first attributed to the Roman poet, Horace.

Trust no future, however pleasant, said HW Longfellow.

Never miss the perfect moment, for time is fleeting and once gone, it is gone forever.

And finally, seize the moments of happiness and love, for they are the only things that matter in the world.
