«One of my greatest failures:»

Munia Khan


«Ah, dream too bright to last!»

Edgar Allan Poe


«I’m the most expensive person in my life. Every day I pay for the poor decisions of my past.»

Jarod Kintz


«I have emotions»

Richard Brautigan


«We are not slaves of the past, nor servants of the present, but masters of the future.»

A.J. Darkholme


«To articulate what is past does not mean to recognize “how it really was.” It means to take control of a memory, as it flashes in a moment of danger.»

Walter Benjamin


«How many people long for that "past, simpler, and better world," I wonder, without ever recognizing the truth that perhaps it was they who were simpler and better, and not the world about them?»

R.A. Salvatore


«The facts about our past are powerless against the blood of Jesus and the Truth of His Word.»

Joyce Meyer


«If using "was" could be deemed gramatically, or atleast emotionally correct, in the sense that it could relate to something that you actually couldn't do in the past, but want to do right now, then I wanna say, "I was sorry, for everything"..»

Allwyn Jose


«I'm a century old, an impossible age, and my brain has no anchor in the present. Instead it drifts, nearly always to the same shore. Today, as most days, it is 1962. The year I discovered love.»

Meg Rosoff


«The longer you live in the past, the less future you have to enjoy.»

«If history really forever repeats itself: then, it has always been then.»

Mokokoma Mokhonoana


«It may be possible to forget our past but our past is not going to forget us.»

Francesca Marciano


«Your past is just a story. And once you realise this, it has no power over you.»

Chuck Palahniuk


«I have noticed over the past three years that most African Christians depend on their pastor or preachers for directions in life than their lecturers, politicians and nurses. That tells why most people refuse certain medical priorities with regards to their pastor's messages. I think if every pastor should have entrepreneurial knowledge coupled with spiritual integrity, Africa will shake!»

Israelmore Ayivor


«Regret is counterproductive. It's looking back on a past that you can't change. Questioning things as they occur can prevent regret in the future.»

Colleen Hoover


«I closed my eyelids, and imagination, taking up the thread of thought, shot its swift shuttle back across the ages, weaving a picture on their blackness so real and vivid in its details that I could almost for a moment think that I had triumphed o'er the Past, and that my spirit's eyes had pierced the mystery of Time.»

H. Rider Haggard


«We went to the New York World's Fair, saw what the past had been like, according to the Ford Motor Car Company and Walt Disney, saw what the future would be like, according to General Motors. And I asked myself about the present: how wide it was, how deep it was, how much was mine to keep.»

Kurt Vonnegut


«Our past is the forge upon which we are hardened and tempered, to prepare us for the present. We are like a fine blade that must be hammered into shape before it can be ready to make its finest cuts.»

Larry Atchley Jr.


«My best day ever. Got up. Had breakfast. Came to school. Bored, as usual. Wishing I wasn't there, like usual. Kids ignoring me, suits me fine. Sitting with the other retards—we’re so special. Wasting my time. Yesterday was the same, and it's gone, anyway. Tomorrow may never come. There is only today. This is the best day and the worst day. Actually it's crap.»

Rachel Ward


«... so in that moment all the flowers in our garden and in M. Swann's park, and the water-lilies on the Vivonne and the good folk of the village and their little dwellings and the parish church and the whole of Combray and of its surroundings, taking their proper shapes and growing solid, sprang into being, town and gardens alike, from my cup of tea.»

Marcel Proust


«You need not fear it, but you must always bear in mind that the past is never quite as finished with you as you think you are with it.»

Kathryn Kennish


«Spiritual growth involves giving up the stories of your past so the universe can write a new one.»

Marianne Williamson


«He was a prisoner to the calendar, he realised, as we all were. He thought in little boxes that were to be ticked off and filled with things to do. Almost every day he thought back to what he had been doing ten years ago, twenty years ago, further. He lived in the past, by his diary. He was a history man, his head full of dead leaves. It was a form of reassurance, he knew. There were too many roads into the future and he didn't like not having a map for it.»

Conrad Williams


«The past, which as always did not know the future, acted in ways that ask to»

Paul Fussell


«Forget your past,»

Nitesh Nishad


«Analyze and correct your past mistakes before they paralyze your future! An undiscovered error will always crave for repetition. Kick out errors; enjoy a bright future!‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬»

Israelmore Ayivor


«I am grateful to God for all the good and bad that has given me, Without reproach the past, without waiting in the future I continue, just living in the moment makes me completely happy!»

Ebelsain Villegas


«You must learn some of my philosophy. Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure.»

Jane Austen


«The past is dangerous, not least because it cannot go away. It is simply»

Anthony Esolen
