The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.
Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.
The world we see that seems so insane is the result of a belief system that is not working. To perceive the world differently, we must be willing to change our belief system, let the past slip away, expand our sense of now, and dissolve the fear in our minds.
To design the future effectively, you must first let go of your past.
Charles J. Givens
I am going away with him to an unknown country where I shall have no past and no name, and where I shall be born again with a new face and an untried heart.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Life is made up of a series of judgments on insufficient data, and if we waited to run down all our doubts, it would flow past us.
I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
The Gospel offers forgiveness for the past, new life for the present, and hope for the future.
Are we like late Rome, infatuated with past glories, ruled by a complacent, greedy elite, and hopelessly powerless to respond to changing conditions?
We must respect the past, and mistrust the present, if we wish to provide for the safety of the future.
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.
Maleficent has suffered abuse in the past, and there's a reason why she is now as furious as she is. And I think that children who have been outcast and abused in any way will relate to her. There's a beautiful side to her; she's not just a dark person. She has all these facets. And that is interesting.
The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
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.
The present was an egg laid by the past that had the future inside its shell.
Zora Neale Hurston
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.
The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest minds of past centuries.
Modern science says: 'The sun is the past, the earth is the present, the moon is the future.' From an incandescent mass we have originated, and into a frozen mass we shall turn. Merciless is the law of nature, and rapidly and irresistibly we are drawn to our doom.
A mother's happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.
Honore de Balzac
In the game of cricket, a hero is a person who respects the game and does not corrupt the game. The one who doesn't or corrupts the game, they are the villain. They should be punished, and they have been punished in the past.
I write adult fiction, but a good 40 to 50 per cent of my readers are teenagers. I love that if they have to grow up and move past JK Rowling they can move to me. From Jo to Jodi!
Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too.
I wasn't a jock in school, and by the 10th grade, when I was in boarding school I was carrying water buckets for the girls' hockey team. I was the kid with long hair and glasses and acne trying to learn how to play guitar and piano in the music center. I was not an athlete past the age of 13 or 14 when they start throwing the ball really fast.
Losers live in the past. Winners learn from the past and enjoy working in the present toward the future.
The particular aspect of time that I'm interested in is the arrow of time: the fact that the past is different from the future. We remember the past but we don't remember the future. There are irreversible processes. There are things that happen, like you turn an egg into an omelet, but you can't turn an omelet into an egg.
Sean M. Carroll
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
C. S. Lewis
