Dr. Peter Kreeft

“Here is one of the stupidest philosophies of life I have ever heard, and yet it is the one that drives our whole civilization: it’s the idea that the purpose of life is to get good things in the future that you don’t yet have, rather than enjoying the good things in the present that you do have. A thousand voices from every corner of our culture whisper that lie. Fight the voices. Command your own thoughts (they’re yours to command!) to look at the present and its beauty.” (Dr. Peter Kreeft, Before I Go: Letters to Our Children About What Really Matters)
