In this great future, you canít forget your past
The mind of man is capable of anything - because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future.
One problem with gazing too frequently into the past is that we may turn around to find the future has run out on us.
A preoccupation with the future not only prevents us from seeing the present as it is but often prompts us to rearrange the past.
Christmas is a bridge. We need bridges as the river of time flows past. Today's Christmas should mean creating happy hours for tomorrow and reliving those of yesterday.
Christmas is the time for looking ahead courageously through the gates of the swiftly approaching new year ... of resolving that the coming months will reflect a kinder, more forgiving and less heedless person than mirrored in the past.
Don't expect too much of Christmas Day. You can't crowd into it any arrears of unselfishness and kindliness that may have accrued during the past twelve months.
History is not the accumulation of events of every kind which happened in the past. It is the science of human societies.
Hard work is the key to success, so work diligently on any project you undertake. If you truly want to be successful, be prepared to give up your leisure time and work past 5 PM and on weekends. Also, have faith in yourself. If you come up with a new idea that you believe in, don't allow other people to discourage you from pursuing it.
Often regret is very false and displaced, and imagines the past to be totally other than it was.
You keep your past by having sisters. As you get older, they're the only ones who don't get bored if you talk about your memories.
I have memories - but only a fool stores his past in the future.
Language is the armory of the human mind, and at once contains the trophies of its past and the weapons of its future conquests.
Past mistakes cannot create a present pain; no mistake in life has the power to make us ache any more than the echo of someone crying can shed tears.
I've come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.
You'll discover that real love is millions of miles past falling in love with anyone or anything. When you make that one effort to feel compassion instead of blame or self-blame, the heart opens again and continues opening
Your past is not your potential. In any hour you can choose to liberate the future.
Photography can only represent the present. Once photographed, the subject becomes part of the past.
We try to grab pieces of our lives as they speed past us. Photographs freeze those pieces and help us remember how we were. We don't know these lost people but if you look around, you'll find someone just like them.
A garden is evidence of faith. It links us with all the misty figures of the past who also planted and were nourished by the fruits of their planting
Life is divided into three terms - that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present
to live better in the future.
Trying to sneak a pitch past Hank Aaron is like trying to sneak a sunrise past a rooster
Think not that guilt requires the burning torches of the Furies to agitate and torment it. Their own frauds, their crimes, their remembrances of the past, their terrors of the future,--these are the domestic furies that are ever present to the mind of the impious.
