i dont know what this is trying to say it is confusing but i think. it means that if you are just trying to plan the future. your future will be mest up because of you trying to plan it. if you just spend all your time planning for the future. your past and present will not come out good. because you wouldnt have paid atention to that part in your life.

yes i believe this true our present events affect those upcoming ones. i think that everything that happens to u once at a time affects what outcome you will resolve to. everything ties in and will change or make your future.i think that if the person thinks that the present has no other meaning than what it will bring then of course disaster will occur because it its just what your expecting and when you get to it you wont understand ho to deal with the future when it turns into the present.

this is very true because what you do right now wil determin what might happen tomorrow or even later in the week so you have to do everything right and not wrong and di it to the best of your ability because if you slack off and just do something that isnt worth it would make you have a worse fututre to the one who tried. also all the little things that you do count so do them and do them good so you could have aa productive futur for yourself.

i think that this quote is saying that if u spend all ur life planning 4 ur future then it will harm u. wen u plan ahead ur plans will usually go wrong. so u have 2 focus on the present which prepare u 4 da future. wen u work on the present ur thoughts,ideas,skillz and mind of state will be prepared 4 da future.

Im thinking this is like something that says without the basic parts with value, there is no whole with a value. Little parts make up the whole. The more the parts value, the the higher value has the whole. I really dont know what this quote is saying. It is confusing but that is what i think this means

I think that this is true because Lets say that you do something wrong that will have a consiquence that will lead to something bad in your future but if you do something good then consiquence for your action will be good .

I agree with this quote because you can't just look at the future and expect it to happen. You have to do something in order for it to happen. You can't just lye there and expect for something wonderful to happen and for you to be a big shot with the whole world laughing with you. So if you want the future to be like that you have to start right now in order to it be true.

I don't know what this quote means but I think that it means that if we prepare only for the future and don't do anything for the present that it will be fatal. And you have to do both things because they won't count by themselves only together. You have to prepare for the future and do stuff for the present to succeed.

What I think this quote means is that you cant plan your future because something could go wrong. Sometimes when you plan something it doesnt go exactly as you planed it. So i think that this quote is saying that you cant plan the future because the present and the past will help you know how your future will be.

I think this quote means that if you keep looking into the future without thinking about your present, it could affect you. For example, if there's an ambitious person who is really looking forward to going to Japan but isn't doing anything to get there. She/He would just be dreaming but is doing nothing to make that dream come true. There is no value to think about the future with doing nothing in the present to accomplish your goals for the future. It's good to plan for the future but while you're doing that make sure you're focused on the present, as well.

I dont really understand what it says but i think that it is trying to say that we are always soooo busy in our future and our past that we aren't always focused on the present and the stuff around us.
And when we least expect it
we could like die or get hurt.

I DONT REALLY UNDERSTAND THIS QOUTE????...but i think that it means that if you have always planed out your future you would end up harming your self becuse you can never guess what can happen in the future...if you plan for the future you can get your hopes up and when the time comes and what you plan doesnt happen you would probably feel bad .....

I WOULDNT EXACTLY AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH THIS QUOTE. I THINK THIS MEANS THAT YOU NEED TO WORRY ABOUT RIGHT NOW BEFORE YOU STREES OUT WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE. BECAUSE IF YOU CANT DEAL WITH WHATS GOING ON RIGHT NOW YOU CAN'T PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE. SO IN THE LONG RUN YOU WILL BE NO WHERE.

i think this quote means that if you keep looking into to the future and not focusing on the present you will not be able to get to the future. i really dont fully understand this quote. it is trying to say that you cant look into the future because whats happens in the future is determined on your past. so if you look in the future without worrying on your present then your future id going to bbe messed up.

I think this means that when you love something you can't just love apart of it, eeither you love it all or you don't. Its like saying you want to buy a car but you don't want to buy it because the only thing you like is the wheels but not the rest. So it is either everything or nothing.

I think what this quote is saying is that if you try to look ahead to the future and not worrying abput the present then it can affect you in the long run. I think what the second part of this quote is saying that you can't make a whole without all of the parts to make it up meaning that you can't make up your future without all of your success to get you their.

Well I think that these quote is true cause somethimes you determine what is going to happen to you somethimes you think that something bad is going to happen to you and you keep thinking on it and if it wasnt going to happen to you it will happen cause you are the one that amakes it come. but if you have possitive thoughts those things will happen to you every thing that happen to you or some of the things that heppen to you are the things that you bring to your life.......

What this quote is saying is that sometimes you can't look at the whole picture, but put it into parts for it to be easier. For ex: to learn the alphabet you don't just go through all the letters you have to go through them one at a time and take your time to pronounce them carefully.

What matters is how you get there not the benefit once you are there. but in diferent situations it is the opposite. Like the penny it is better the efort you put in it and the benefit wasnt all that great. To get an A it is better the benefit because you would not like the work you did the way to get there but you can also get somthing out of it anyway.

i think that it is true that you cant honestly take the value of something that you have accomplished unless you appreciate the smaller parts of the whole project. it is the small details that makes the full image great. to me this quote is saying that if you are always looking to the future than you cant truly appreciat what is right in front of us. if we keep looking ahead then you lose sight of the greatness of the future.

from what i got out of this quote is that we should value and take in what we are doing right now in the present, instead of worrying about our futures,beause what we do now is what will determine our futures.

I agree, because if you dont put or find value in what you do. When you get the outcome of it, it wont have the same value that you thought the value would have. Such as if you rob a bank the money that you get from robbin' them dusent feel as good as it woukd have felt if you would have earned the money

This quote is true because if you're always thinking about what the whole future will bring you you're basically wasting your time. But if you take life event by event then it means something and each event is a worthy experience.

Like a puzzle, you have to take every piece of your life and place it aside to the other pieces to see if it can fit. You have to plan every step you take, so at the end, it can fit. And at the end, if you did it right, you will have the whole picture, not just parts of it.

I agree with this quote because the little tiniest peices is what makes the big picture.The littlest things are what really matters most.Time doesn't stop for no one so you have to make even the littlest thing you do you have to put all your effort into it. When you do this you will notice to see alot of positive outcome to things. Your not susposed to live thinking about next week or tomorrow or what happened yesterday, your susposed to live for today.

Thinking only about your future and not about now will give you a crappy future because the little things you do now is what makes your future. So if you think about doing great things now and actually do those great things you might get a better future than if you just plan the future NOW!..cause nothing ever goes as planned in life....welll not always.

yes i believe this true our present events affect those upcoming ones. i think that everything that happens to u once at a time affects what outcome you will resolve to. everything ties in and will change or make your future.i think that if the person thinks that the present has no other meaning than what it will bring then of course disaster will occur because it its just what your expecting and when you get to it you wont understand ho to deal with the future when it turns into the present.

The truth is that i didn't get a word this said. I got the last part about value so i guess ill try to explain that. Well it means that if u want something to have value as a whole the little things that helped make that big thing. So like for example... to make a beautiful Christmas tree all the ornaments and decorations that you put on it have to be pretty. that is why i agree with part of this quote.

Well doy. this is bassically what i said last time. about everything being a minor igsinificance to something in the future. we never take the time to appreciate the present, we are always thinking of what will come next. and eventually that "fututre" come, but we don't realize it, because we've already made up a future fantasy for ourselves.

I think this quote means that if you keep looking into the future without thinking about your present, it could affect you. For example, if there's an ambitious person who is really looking forward to going to Japan but isn't doing anything to get there. She/He would just be dreaming but is doing nothing to make that dream come true. There is no value to think about the future with doing nothing in the present to accomplish your goals for the future. It's good to plan for the future but while you're doing that make sure you're focused on the present, as well.

i think this quote means that whatever you do right now, will effect your future. an example is if someone wants to be a professional soccer player but that person ist doing anything to achieve that goal, that person will lower his/her chances of becoming a pro soccer player. it aint worth thinking of a future if youre not going to work for it. the only way that person will achieve that dream is if that person practices and plays everyday until he/she thinks he/she is good enough.

I think what this quote is trying to say that it's trying to put the pieces together and make a good whole. It means to have a good whole you must work little by little putting the pieces together to make the whole hold together for a very long time. It's also saying that if you expect the future to lie on what will happen, you are sadly mistaken. You work to have a good future and little by little your life keeps getting better and better to become who you are and what you will be.

I agree with this quote because you can't just look at the future and expect it to happen. You have to do something in order for it to happen. You can't just lye there and expect for something wonderful to happen and for you to be a big shot with the whole world laughing with you. So if you want the future to be like that you have to start right now in order to it be true

this is very true because what you do right now wil determin what might happen tomorrow or even later in the week so you have to do everything right and not wrong and di it to the best of your ability because if you slack off and just do something that isnt worth it would make you have a worse fututre to the one who tried. also all the little things that you do count so do them and do them good so you could have aa productive futur for yourself.

well if you think a lot what is going to happened in your life, if you think that little things will be the disaster for your future you are going to get frustrated by thinking a lot. i don't know i always think that things happen for something. i sometimes think that you cant plan all the future because the present and the past will help you to determined how your future will be. so i don't get really upset, i just try to do the things that i supposed to do and try to enjoy life before everything come along.

uuummmm i think that this qoute is trying to say that do the best that you can do now because what you do now will effect your future. when your in school you should do all your work so that when grades go out you wont have to struggle to bring your grade up at the last possible minute. and this applies to more than school this applies to life because people make mistakes and they always have to pay for them later which makes them regret doing what they did when they could have made the choice to not do it in the first place. so just think about about you're about to do before you do it and how it will affect you later
