I can’t go back to yesterday – because I was a different person then.
The past is never where you think you left it.
Katherine Anne Porter
We are products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it.
No man is rich enough to buy back his past.
The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.
L.P. Hartley, The Go-Between
‘I had my chance.’ He said it, retiring from a lifetime of wanting. ‘I had my chance, and sometimes in life, there are no second chances. You look at what you have, not what you miss, and you move forward.’
Jamie Ford, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
