Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
Kennedy, John F.
People are always shouting they want to create a better future. It's not true. The future is an apathetic void of no interest to anyone. The past is full of life, eager to irritate us, provoke and insult us, tempt us to destroy or repaint it. The only reason people want to be masters of the future is to change the past.
Deem not life a thing of consequence. For look at the yawning void of the future, and at that other limitless space, the past.
A lot of people go through life like they are rowing a boat. They look at where they have been (the PAST) rather than where they are going (the FUTURE).
Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.
Live in the present. The past is gone; the future is unknown -- but the present is real, and your opportunities are now. You must see these opportunities; they must be real for you. The catch is that they can't seem real if your mind is buried in past failures, if you keep reliving old mistakes, old guilts, old tragedies. Fight your way above the many inevitable Traumatizations of your ego, escape damnation by the past, and look to the opportunities of the present. I don't mean some vague moment in the present -- next week or next month, perhaps. I mean today, this minute.
The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
Everything that looks to the future elevates human nature. Never is life so low or so little as when occupied with the present.
Walter Savage Landor
I see not a step before me as I tread on another year; But I â€™ve left the Past in Godâ€™s keeping,â€”the Future His mercy shall clear; And what looks dark in the distance may brighten as I draw near.
Brainard, Mary Gardiner
The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that men may become robots. True enough, robots do not rebel. But given man's nature, robots cannot live and remain sane, they become Golems, they will destroy their world and themselves because they cannot stand any longer the boredom of a meaningless life.
