Backwards Quotations

You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

Steve Jobs

Kathleen Hanna

It's a wonderful world. You can't go backwards. You're always moving forward. It's the wonderful part about life. And that's terrific.
