It's a wonderful feeling to be a bridge to the past and to unite generations. The sport of baseball does that, and I am just a part of it.
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
People don't realize that now is all there ever is; there is no past or future except as memory or anticipation in your mind.
How quickly we forget God's great deliverances in our lives. How easily we take for granted the miracles he performed in our past.
God cannot alter the past, though historians can.
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
When someone has a strong intuitive connection, Buddhism suggests that it's because of karma, some past connection.
I turned to music originally because of my past and needing a release or an outlet to get out anger or frustration or hurt.
We have one life; it soon will be past; what we do for God is all that will last.
There is no teacher, living or past, who can give us the actual understanding of Truth. A teacher can only put our feet upon the path and point the way. That is all. It is wholly dependent on the individual to make his way to Truth.
Let them look to the past, but let them also look to the future; let them look to the land of their ancestors, but let them look also to the land of their children.
We have a hope of succeeding if we learn from our past mistakes and pull together to make the hard choices.
For the past few years, I've been more selective than I have any right to be, but I think that's finally starting to work in my favor. I think I get way too much credit for making what people consider to be smart choices, but it's only because I made a decision to stop worrying about making money.
Umm... I don't judge my relationship with Puff or Bad Boy according to other people or past artists. At the end of the day, you are in charge of your career, and you can't depend on no man to do anything for you. I've learned to judge relationships with a person on myself and that person, not what they have done with previous people.
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
I haven't had that one great love, which is good. I don't want that to be in the past - I want it to be in the future.
The best prophet of the future is the past.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't angry some days. But I really have worked hard to put a lot of the anger and disappointment in the past.
We have been so successful in the past century at the art of living longer and staying alive that we have forgotten how to die. Too often we learn the hard way. As soon as the baby boomers pass pensionable age, their lesson will be harsher still.
We just want to win. That's the bottom line. I think a lot of times people may become content with one championship or a little bit of success, but we don't really reflect on what we've done in the past. We focus on the present.
We always project into the future or reflect in the past, but we are so little in the present.
In the past I have defended the right of the IRA to engage in armed struggle. I did so because there was no alternative for those who would not bend the knee, or turn a blind eye to oppression, or for those who wanted a national republic.
There are times, like after a long day of work, when the thought of an easy drive-through is enticing. But then I remember how crappy I felt when I ate fast food in the past, and it inspires me to head to the grocery store or my local farmer's market and whip up an easy but healthier option.
Second only to the sea, the Miami sky has been the greatest comfort in my life past 50. On a good day, when the wind blows from the south, the light here is diffuse and forgiving.
No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, and the wisdom of cookbook writers.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
