Jazz music is America's past and its potential, summed up and sanctified and accessible to anybody who learns to listen to, feel, and understand it. The music can connect us to our earlier selves and to our better selves-to-come. It can remind us of where we fit on the time line of human achievement, an ultimate value of art.
In this bright future you can't forget your past.
I'm looking forward to the future, and feeling grateful for the past.
Keep all special thoughts and memories for lifetimes to come. Share these keepsakes with others to inspire hope and build from the past, which can bridge to the future.
History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon.
See, when you drive home today, you've got a big windshield on the front of your car. And you've got a little bitty rearview mirror. And the reason the windshield is so large and the rearview mirror is so small is because what's happened in your past is not near as important as what's in your future.
I was walking along and this chair came flying past me, and another, and another, and I thought, man, is this gonna be a good night.
It's great to reminisce about good memories of my past. It was enjoyable when it was today. So learning to enjoy today has two benefits: it gives me happiness right now, and it becomes a good memory later.
The Gospel offers forgiveness for the past, new life for the present, and hope for the future.
Racial profiling punishes innocent individuals for the past actions of those who look and sound like them. It misdirects crucial resources and undercuts the trust needed between law enforcement and the communities they serve. It has no place in our national discourse, and no place in our nation's police departments.
Benjamin Todd Jealous
I know of no way of judging the future but by the past.
The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us, and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.
Photography can only represent the present. Once photographed, the subject becomes part of the past.
Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?
Mary Manin Morrissey
When you forgive, you in no way change the past - but you sure do change the future.
If I'd written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people - including me - would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.
Hunter S. Thompson
The past explains how I got here, but the future is up to me - and I love to live life at full throttle.
The past is not simply the past, but a prism through which the subject filters his own changing self-image.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
I am not someone who is ashamed of my past. I'm actually really proud. I know I made a lot of mistakes, but they, in turn, were my life lessons.
My school days were the happiest days of my life; which should give you some indication of the misery I've endured over the past twenty-five years.
There's no present. There's only the immediate future and the recent past.
When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future.
Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.
Life is divided into three terms - that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present, to live better in the future.
That's the fun of going to a high school reunion: it's seeing the people who you were close to all those years ago, and re-exploring the relationships of the past.
Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
