Past quotes
Since grief only aggravates your loss, grieve not for what is past.

- Percy, Walker
It is sadder to find the past again and find it inadequate to the present than it is to have it elude you and remain forever a harmonious conception of memory.

The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows.

- King Jr. Martin Luther
For the first time in the history of mankind, one generation literally has the power to destroy the past, the present and the future, the power to bring time to an end.

- Humphrey, Hubert H.
Trying to get a fast ball past Hank Aaron is like trying to get the sun past a rooster.

- Simmons, Curt
The past is a source of knowledge, and the future is a source of hope. Love of the past implies faith in the future.

- Stephen Ambrose
Every advantage in the past is judged in the light of the final issue.

- Demosthenes
The cradle of the future is the grave of the past.

- Grillparzer, Franz
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.

- Thompson, Hunter S.
Writers are the main landmarks of the past.

- Edward George Earl Bulwer-Lytton
Civilization is an active deposit which is formed by the combustion of the present with the past. Neither in countries without a Present nor in those without a Past is it to be encountered. Proust in Venice, Matisse's birdcages overlooking the flower market at Nice, Gide on the seventeenth-century quais of Toulon, Lorca in Granada, Picasso by Saint-Germain-des-Pr?s: there lies civilization and for me it can exist only under those liberal regimes in which the Present is alive and therefore capable of assimilating the Past.

- Connolly, Cyril
A careful inventory of all your past experiences may disclose the startling fact that everything has happened for the best.

The only use of a knowledge of the past is to equip us for the present. The present contains all that there is. It is holy ground; for it is the past, and it is the future.

- Alfred North Whitehead
He who controls the past controls the future.

- George Orwell
The thought of our past years in me doth breed perpetual benedictions.

- Wordsworth, William
We human beings do have some genuine freedom of choice and therefore some effective control over our own destinies. I am not a determinist. But I also believe that the decisive choice is seldom the latest choice in the series. More often than not, it will turn out to be some choice made relatively far back in the past.

- Toynbee, Arnold
Wild, wild wind, wilt thou never cease thy sighing? Dark, dark night, wilt thou never wear away? Cold, cold Church, in thy death sleep lying, Thy Lent is past, thy Passion here, but not thine Easter Day.

Ay--stay awhile in peace. The storms are still. Beneath her eider robe the patient earth Watches in silence for the sun: we'll sit And gaze up with her at the changeless heaven, Until this tyranny be overpast.

- Saint's Tragedy, Act iii. Scene iii. 1847.
Here lies interred in the eternity of the past, from whence there is no resurrection for the days -- whatever there may be for the dust -- the thirty-third year of an ill-spent life, which, after a lingering disease of many months sank into a lethargy, and expired, January 22d, 1821, A.D. leaving a successor inconsolable for the very loss which occasioned its existence.

- Byron, Lord
A lot of people go through life like they are rowing a boat. They look at where they have been (the PAST) rather than where they are going (the FUTURE).
