The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment Quotes.

1. "Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life."
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

2. "Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is."
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

3. "Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not the love of God but the "love" of ego. However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary. There may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others, and if that person feels the same toward you, it can be said that you are in a love relationship with him or her. The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs."
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

4. "Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it's no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing."
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

5. "I have lived with several Zen masters -- all of them cats."
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

6. "If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. Primary reality is within; secondary reality without."
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

7. "All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry - all forms of fear - are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence."
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

8. "It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living."
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

9. "...the past gives you an identity and the future holds the promise of salvation, of fulfillment in whaterver form. Both are illusions."
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

10. "As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love - even the most simple action."
- Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
