….. the past is a place of learning, not a place of living.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.
If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the
The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence; the past is a place of learning, not a place of living.
The past has no power over the present moment.
Just because the past didn’t turn out like you wanted it to, doesn’t mean the future can’t be better than you ever imagined.
It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.
‘Movement is life;’ and it is well to be able to forget the past, and kill the present by continual change.
The past is a stepping stone, not a millstone.
Never let the sadness of your past and the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present.
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
No amount of regretting can change the past, and no amount of worrying can change the future.
The past cannot be cured.
Nostalgia is a file that removes the rough edges from the good old days.
Keep in mind that people change, but the past doesn’t.
The past is a candle at great distance: too close to let you quit, too far to comfort you.
