present moment

Were you to live three thousand years, or even thirty thousand,
remember that the sole life which a man can lose
is that which he is living at the moment.
This means that the longest life and the shortest life
amount to the same thing. For the passing minute
is every man's equal possession, but what has once gone by is not ours.
For the sole thing of which any man can be deprived
is the present; since this is all he owns.

Marcus Aurelius
