Past - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

Any day you wake up and your body`s still moving is a good day. You can start over. You can forget your past mistakes.

Grey`s Anatomy (movie)

We can start over. Every day, we get second chances to become who we always wanted to be. We can leave our past behind or we can learn from it and honor it. We can decide. It`s never too late to change.

Grey`s Anatomy (movie)

The past, where you came from, that`s important, but it is not as important as the future and where you`re going.

Supernatural (movie)

Shallow men speak of the past; wise men of the present and fools of the future.

Madame Marie du Deffand

When you forgive, you in no way change the past - but you sure do change the future.

Bernard C. Meltzer

When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future.

Dian Fossey

It is obviously impossible to live in the present. The brain-computer has no program for it. That we live in the past and in the future, in memories and hopes, in past accomplishments and plans for the future, is based on one of those odd laws of the human psyche.

Peter Noll

The one who forgives never brings up the past to that person`s face. When you forgive, it`s like it never happened. True forgiveness is complete and total.

Louis Zamperini

Our present swarms with traces of our past. We are histories of ourselves, narratives. I am not this momentary mass of flesh reclined on the sofa typing the letter a on my laptop; I am my thoughts full of the traces of the phrases that I am writing; I am my mother`s caresses, and the serene kindness with which my father calmly guided me; I am my adolescent travels; I am what my reading has deposited in layers in my mind; I am my loves, my moments of despair, my friendships, what I`ve written, what I`ve heard; the faces engraved on my memory. I am, above all, the one who a minute ago made a cup of tea for himself. The one who a moment ago typed the word "memory" into his computer. The one who just composed the sentence that I am now completing. If all this disappeared, would I still exist? I am this long, ongoing novel. My life consists of it.

Carlo Rovelli

The difference between past and future, between cause and effect, between memory and hope, between regret and intention... in the elementary laws that describe the mechanisms of the world, there is no such difference.

Carlo Rovelli

That which seems intuitive to us now is the result of scientific and philosophical elaborations in the past.

Carlo Rovelli

Right actions in the future are the best apologies for bad actions in the past.

Tryon Edwards

There are two kinds of people: ones that are trying to build their future and ones that are trying to rebuild their past.

Max Payne

Time doesn`t just steal the future, it steals the past.

Penn Jillette

Just as one wouldn`t draw a lasting conclusion about oneself on the basis of a brief experience of indigestion, one needn`t do so on the basis of how one has thought or behaved for vast stretches of time in the past. A creative change of inputs to the system - learning new skills, forming new relationships, adopting new habits of attention - may radically transform one`s life.
