Forgiveness is about empowering yourself, rather than empowering your past.
T. D. Jakes
The French Revolution is the ultimate modernist statement. Destroy everything. Don't build on the past. There is no past.
I love my past, I love my present. I am not ashamed of what I have had, and I am not sad because I no longer have it.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Sometimes opportunities float right past your nose. Work hard, apply yourself, and be ready. When an opportunity comes you can grab it.
The past is the beginning of the beginning and all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn.
H. G. Wells
By in large in this country the issue of gay rights and equality should be past the point of debate. Really, there should be no debate anymore.
Each age tries to form its own conception of the past. Each age writes the history of the past anew with reference to the conditions uppermost in its own time.
Frederick Jackson Turner
Especially for those of us who lived in single cells, you had the time to sit down and think, and we discovered that sitting down just to think is one of the best ways of keeping yourself fresh and able, to be able to address the problems facing you, and you had the opportunity, also, of examining your past.
What we call wisdom is the result of all the wisdom of past ages. Our best institutions are like young trees growing upon the roots of the old trunks that have crumbled away.
Henry Ward Beecher
Fear not for the future, weep not for the past.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
You have moments of grief in life, and if you can put pen to paper and capture that, that's something wonderful. I can revisit actual songs about past deaths, and I know that emotion is as true now as it was then.
Terrorism, ladies and gentlemen, in my eyes I have a very, very, very simple explanation. Gangs of criminals, killers, used unfortunately by certain governments in the past for political purposes, who are on their own now as gangs.
I would point out that the cultural advance of these people has been suppressed in the past and continues to be suppressed in the present by policies designed to keep them in ignorance.
In the past the man has been first; in the future the system must be first... The first object of any good system must be that of developing first class men.
Frederick W. Taylor
Italy remained attached to conservatism. It had a political class that lived in the past and didn't build the future. The past is our strength, but it risks becoming our ruin if we walk with our heads turned backwards.
Each party steals so many articles of faith from the other, and the candidates spend so much time making each other's speeches, that by the time election day is past there is nothing much to do save turn the sitting rascals out and let a new gang in.
H. L. Mencken
I firmly believe that you live and learn, and if you don't learn from past mistakes, then you need to be drug out and shot.
R. Lee Ermey
We teach people that they upset themselves. We can't change the past, so we change how people are thinking, feeling and behaving today.
Internationally, President Obama has adopted an appeasement strategy. He believes America's role as leader in the world is a thing of the past. I believe a strong America must - and will - lead the future.
Parents are like shuttles on a loom. They join the threads of the past with threads of the future and leave their own bright patterns as they go.
We are at a crossroads in the music business: with the rise of the internet, the world we live in has changed, and the past is not coming back. But I see the glass as half-full: the internet and social networking are new avenues for the next Bob Dylan to be born on.
Jon Bon Jovi
Don't live in the past. There's no point. You can't change anything. What a waste of time.
Let me just tell you how thrilling it really is, and how, what a challenge it is, because in 1988 the question is whether we're going forward to tomorrow or whether we're going to go past to the - to the back!
The past is only the present become invisible and mute; and because it is invisible and mute, its memorized glances and its murmurs are infinitely precious. We are tomorrow's past.
I looked for the same pitch my whole career, a breaking ball. All of the time. I never worried about the fastball. They couldn't throw it past me, none of them.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
