The present and the past coexist, but the past shouldn’t be in flashback.
I don’t believe necessarily the past is in the past. It’s eternal, it’s all around us.
The past is not simply the past, but a prism through which the subject filters his own changing self-image.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
Your future takes precedence over your past. Focus on your future, rather than on the past.
Gary Ryan Blair
