“The best place to be is here. The best time to be is now.”

From: Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan and, together, they are Wyld Stallyns

The story behind the quote: This quote comes from Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, which is a sequel to the highly successful late 80’s movie, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. In this movie, instead of travelling through time like in Excellent Adventure, Bogus Journey has the duo of Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan touring the afterlife.

The quote comes from the very end of the movie. During their final concert, the Wyld Stallyns give a short speech detailing how they’ve been all over time and even to different spiritual planes. After saying that, both of them deliver the quote.

Geek wisdom: We all like to reminisce about the past and the good ol’ days as well as look to a brighter future and all the places we’ll go. However, we always tend to look at the present. We sometimes feel that the best times are all behind us and we can even postpone our own happiness until we achieve something. We can forget that the past and future don’t really exist; the only time we have is the present. So, make the present the best place you can be in.
