Let us not look back to the past with anger, nor towards the future with fear, but look around with awareness

James Thurber

Physically you are a human being, but mentally you are incomplete. Given that we have this physical human form, we must safeguard our mental capacity for judgment.

Dalai Lama

Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.

Aristotle
