Kung Fu Panda

Oh, yes! Enjoyable! A treat to stressed-out people like us. Hehehe… Don’t miss it!

Some memorable quotes from the movie:

“Quit… don’t quit. Noodles… don’t noodles. You are too concerned with what was and with what will be. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift. That is why they call it a present.” – Oogway, Rock On Tortoise Master!! 

Well, that’s not really his title, but that short flashback scene when he stopped Tai Lung was just… well, awesome!

Let me see if I can look for that short clip and post it here. Hehe…

The quote is actually part of a longer old quote: “The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.”

According to that answer from Yahoo!:

In the 1902 book, “Sun Dials and Roses of Yesterday: Garden Delights…” by Alice Morse Earle, it is noted that the words “Time Waits for No Man” is a play on words or punning device of “gnomon” that has been used on sun dials. A gnomon is a pointer on a sun dial. Somewhere along the way came the full quote which has been truncated by some to your version.

So there you go.
