No time like the present June 27, 2008

Came across this beautiful quote from Elizabeth Gaskell’s “Cranford” at The Happiness Project:

GaskellI never knew what sad work the reading of old letters was before that evening, though I could hardly tell why. The letters were as happy as letters could be—at least those early letters were. There was in them a vivid and intense sense of the present time, which seemed so strong and full, as if it could never pass away, and as if the warm, living hearts that so expressed themselves could never die, and be as nothing to the sunny earth.

That’s the thing about the present moment, though: It never passes away.
