1 Minuto na Palma da Mão
Leave the past behind. Give privacy your future . Body and mind in yours now. Perceive the world around you, feel the world inside.
1 Minuto na Palma da Mão
The past is a lake in which you add every day a glass with your attitudes. How crystal clear is water?
1 Minuto na Palma da Mão
Past, of not being able to change. Future, of not being able to predict. Now, to be transformed into a better past and a prosperous future.
1 Minuto na Palma da Mão
One fine day she left the past behind and gave privacy to the future. He took his now to take a walk, watch the sun, listen to good music, spread smiles and be grateful!
A.E. Housman
Into my heart an air that killsFrom yon far country blows:What are those blue remembered hills,What spires, what farms are those?That is the land of lost content,I see it shining plain,The happy highways where I wentAnd cannot come again.- Poem XL
A.J. Darkholme
Trust is not a gasoline-soaked blanket that succumbs to the matches of betrayal, never able to be used for its warmth again; it's a tapestry that wears thin in places, but can be patched over if you have the right materials, circumstances, and patience to repair it. If you don't, you're always the one who feels the coldest when winter comes.
Ada Limon
People have done this before, but not us.
Akiroq Brost
Whenever you find your mind wandering to the past or future, pull yourself back into the present. Making peace, working through forgiveness of yourself and others over whatever happened in the past will help you to not revisit the past. Acceptance is an important tool when dealing with all that happened before the present moment. Remember, you cannot go back and change anything that has happened. Nothing at all. It was, what is was. You are here now, in the present, and as such, have the power to affect only the present.
Akshay Vasu
Stop holding on to the broken pieces of that mirror even after you are bleeding so badly, I agree that the reflections you had imagined or saw once before were beautiful but sometimes holding on to them with a hope will just continue to hurt you even more and it will never get any better.
Akshay Vasu
I will continue to exist in all these little moments. where we took the first dip of love and my heart skipped a beat. Our first walk, the first touch which burnt my soul, that first rain, the first kiss, the first comfortable silence between us. How many years may pass, Whenever I am sitting near the window and its raining or whenever I am sitting by a fireside and its cold, There will always be a piece of me which reminds me of you. It will stay in this moment forever.
Alan Lightman
But what is the past? Could it be, the firmness of the past is just illusion? Could the past be a kaleidoscope, a pattern of images that shift with each disturbance of a sudden breeze, a laugh, a thought? And if the shift is everywhere, how would we know?
Alan Watts
I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.
Alaric Hutchinson
Accept the past as the past and realize that each new day you are a new person who doesn't need to carry old baggage into the new day with you. It's amazing how many people ruin the beauty of today with the sorrows of yesterday. Yesterday doesn't exist anymore! For example, if ever I feel foolish or guilty about something I've done, I learn from it and attempt to do better the next time. Shame or guilt serves no one. Such feelings actually keep us down, often lowering the vibrations of those around us, as well. Living in the present moment is the recurring baptism of the soul, forever purifying every new day with a new you.
Alaric Hutchinson
How ironic it is then, to realize how many of we humans are masochists! That even when we are placed in paradise, the majority of us would, by choice, focus on everything outside the present moment and make ourselves suffer by thinking about Dis-Ease! Too many of us would dwell on a past that no longer exists while everything in the present moment is wonderful. What great paradoxes we as humans are capable of!
Alberto Caeiro
What comes, when it comes, will be what it is.
Alice Miller
Without realizing that the past is constantly determining their present actions, they avoid learning anything about their history. They continue to live in their repressed childhood situation, ignoring the fact that is no longer exists, continuing to fear and avoid dangers that, although once real, have not been real for a long time.
Amit Abraham
I don't like regressing - I move beyond. Life belongs to the future and I believe in creating History rather than visiting and revisiting the past.
Amit Kalantri
If she says goodbye, someone else will say hi.

If where you are is worthwhile then where you are from doesn't matter.
Amit Ray
If you want to fly on the sky, you need to leave the earth. If you want to move forward, you need to let go the past that drags you down.
Amy Leigh Mercree
We can accept and embrace our pasts as part of the path that shaped who we are now.
Andrei Tarkovsky
In a certain sense the past is far more real, or at any rate more stable, more resilient than the present. The present slips and vanishes like sand between the fingers, acquiring material weight, only in its recollection.
Andrew Solomon
Love is circumstantial; we can love anyone if need be; and losing the one we love is the singular catastrophe. Time does not heal it. Every present moment yearns for even the roughest past.
Ann Brashares
Tibby, who was not fond of change, had once told Bridget that the present, no matter what it brought, couldn't change the past. The past was set and sealed.
Ann Brashares
You couldn't erase the past. You couldn't even change it. But sometimes life offered you the opportunity to put it right.
Anna Akhmatova
As the future ripens in the past,so the past rots in the future --a terrible festival of dead leaves.
Anne Rice
I'll write about my past but I won't talk about it. I'll turn it into art if I can, but I won't talk about it.
Anthony Liccione
This I would wish, that there was no time or sleep. No more past, or future, and everything we did was good the first time, for the day. Without the need of looking back to learn from the past, and no future to hope for the better. No more tiredness, or having a need to dream, and no nightmares to fear. If there was a second time, this is how I would like to start over.
Anthony T. Hincks
I am haunted by my past and by what I must do to ensure my future.
Anthony T.Hincks
Bellybuttons are our link with the past.
Anton Chekhov
We just philosophize, complain of boredom, or drink vodka. It's so clear, you see, that if we're to begin living in the present, we must first of all redeem our past and then be done with it forever. And the only way we can redeem our past is by suffering and by giving ourselves over to exceptional labor, to steadfast and endless labor.
Anton Chekhov
The past,' he thought, 'is linked with the present by an unbroken chain of events flowing one out of another.' And it seemed to him that he had just seen both ends of that chain; that when he touched one end the other quivered.
Aporva Kala
People forget history nowadays, he lamented, that is what the ego does, making one the prisoner of one's inflated present, ignoring the humble past one has lived.
Armin Houman
I can´t change my past, or predict my future. But i can shape my present.
Arundhati Roy
History would be a revelation of the future as much as it was a study of the past.
Arundhati Roy
History is really a study of the future, not the past.
Audrey Niffenegger
The choices we're working with here are a block universe, where past, present and future all coexist simultaneously and everything has already happened; chaos, where anything can happen and nothing can be predicted because we can't know all the variables; and a Christian universe in which God made everything and it's all here for a purpose but we have free will anyway.
Avina Celeste
Always strive to be a better person. No matter what. Do not try to be better than your fellow man but to be better than you were yesterday. Compare yourself only to your past you. Any bit of progress that you make of improving yourself, no matter how small, makes a positive impact in your life and in the lives of others around you. A little bit every day. Try.
Avina Celeste
Look to the past only to find ways to improve your present and future, never to find regrets. Don't let what has happened in the past limit your life now. Let your past expand your life.
Avina Celeste
Let the past be the past as you make your way into the future.
Bil Keane
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.
Bill Cosby
The past is a ghost, the future a dream and all we ever have is now.
Blaise Pascal
He no longer loves the person whom he loved ten years ago. I quite believe it. She is no longer the same, nor is he. He was young, and she also; she is quite different. He would perhaps love her yet, if she were what she was then.
Bluenscottish
The closer you get to your past the sooner you realize it was never present
Brian Tracy
Always choose the future over the past. What do we do now?
C.S. Lewis
Gratitude looks to the Past and love to the Present; fear, avarice, lust, and ambition look ahead.
Carol Shields
It has never been easy for me to understand the obliteration of time, to accept, as others seem to do, the swelling and corresponding shrinkage of seasons or the conscious acceptance that one year has ended and another begun. There is something here that speaks of our essential helplessness and how the greater substance of our lives is bound up with waste and opacity... How can so much time hold so little, how can it be taken from us? Months, weeks, days, hours misplaced
Cassandra Clare
I just don't see why the past has to matter.
Catherynne M. Valente
Your past's a private matter, sweetheart. You just keep it locked up in xbox where it can't hurt anyone.
Cathy Burnham Martin
Past misdeeds must only serve as a reference point in calm conversation about lessons learned or actions that taught us to behave better. They should never be bantered about with sarcasm, anger, or nastiness.
Chris Kraus
We suicide ourselves for our own survival. Is there any hope of dipping back into the past and circling round it like you can in art?
Christina Rossetti
Fair as the moon and joyful as the light;Tot wan with waiting, not with sorrow dim; Not as she is, but was when hope shone bright;Not as she is, but as she fills his dreams.
Christopher Isherwood
But now isn't simply now. Now is also a cold reminder: one whole day later than yesterday, one year later than last year. Every now is labeled with its date, rendering all past nows obsolete, until
Chuck Palahniuk
You realize that our mistrust of the future makes it hard to give up the past.
Clare Francis
The truth is not so important as the leaving of it behind.
Colleen Hoover
Regret is counterproductive. It's looking back on a past that you can't change. Questioning things as they occur can prevent regret in the future.
Confucius
Think of tomorrow, the past can't be mended.
Confucius
Study the past if you would define the future.
Cormac McCarthy
Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real.
Cormac McCarthy
Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
It's not that I can't remember. It's that I prefer not to remember, which means that I prefer not to remember what not remembering did to me the last time I did it.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
An exceptional future can only be built on the transformation of the mess I've made out of my past, not the elimination of that mess.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
What I see behind me is what I'm going to create in front of me. Therefore, I might want to take a long hard look out of the rearview mirror before I drop it into 'drive'.
Craig Groeschel
You release the pain of the past and press on. It's a new day, and God is doing a new thing. He wants to take you to a new place, to transform you into a new person.
Cressida Cowell
The past haunts the present in more ways than we think. It certainly scares the living daylights out of ME~ Old Wrinkly
Criss Jami
The purest regret, no matter what, is thinking you didn't love enough.
Criss Jami
You can't be a rebel without the scars that come with it. Truth is, some days scars are just as ugly as they are beautiful.
Criss Jami
I respect traditional people - they have the eyes which see value in the tarnished. This is a gift in itself. Tradition requires a wealth of discipline in order to be adhered to, hence it is rarely found in youth.
Criss Jami
Good...if you've done things you aren't proud of. It means you have a conscience.
Criss Jami
Every new generation believes its own period to be absolutely superior intellectually - greater than all past cultures yet equal among its modern cultures.
Criss Jami
We often hear about stepping outside ourselves, but rarely about stepping outside our generation.

Wise is the one who flavors the future with some salt from the past. Becoming dust is no threat to the phoenix born from the ash.

Living in the moment works sometimes, but when alone, it clouds over your memories and dreams, and those are what I need to survive.
Dada Bhagwan
Only those with whom you have bound karmic accounts, in the past life, will be able to live with you together.

After establishing anything as the absolute truth, its' conclusion is reached. It doesn't have to be established as the truth again. What is proven as the eternal established truth for past, present and future is known as the Principle [Siddhant].
Dan Brown
The key to our scientific future,....is hidden in our past
Daniel Wallace
He believed in himself, believed in his quixotic ambition, letting the failures of the previous day disappear as each new day dawned. Yesterday was not today. The past did not predict the future if he could learn from his mistakes.
Danilo Kiš
The past was a minefield about which few maps seemed to agree. And why should that surprise me? It's a big place.p. 30
Daphne du Maurier
We can never go back again, that much is certain. The past is still close to us. The things we have tried to forget and put behind us would stir again, and that sense of fear, of furtive unrest, struggling at length to blind unreasoning panic - now mercifully stilled, thank God - might in some manner unforeseen become a living companion as it had before.

We can never live in the past; so everyday we begin anew.

In your trembling touch of love, I lost my past, present, and future.

Past, I am letting you go. Future, I will see you tomorrow. Present, I love you, live in you, celebrate you, and will never let you go.

To enjoy the beauty of life, live profoundly in the present moment without the fear of the past or future.

Debatrayee Banerjee
For Past is never buried-It just shines with a brighter ray,Perhaps because now we look at it as a third personUshering in a smile with moist eyes Which is but a reflection of an array of infinite emotions.Indeed, Past is never buried-It breathes silently,Deep inside,Distant yet alive.
Debatrayee Banerjee
The past, the present, the future
Dexter Palmer
But to find a lingering unread missive from someone no longer living, and someone whose life had been so deeply entwined with one's own, raised the possibility that the past could never be a fully settled matter. It meant that your own past could be altered without your action or consent, that the story of your self that you continually told back to yourself could be revised by force, making you into another person who you would, perhaps, prefer not to become.
Deyth Banger
Sometimes you want to change the past by going from the future in the past. But sometimes you find that everything which you have done, it's not better but it becomes worst but why?(11.22.63 - Better Check it out!)

Lift up your eyes from your books, from your past, from your hurts and look upon all people with love, because when you look into another's eyes and see innocence, you find it in yourself.
Dragos Bratasanu
Every step we take toward the top is possible because of all the little steps we took in the past.
Dragos Bratasanu
With every dream and with every love, you have to die to the old, and be reborn to the new. You must leave what you know behind, and surrender to the unknown.

With every dream and with every love, you will have to die and be reborn, to leave the known behind and surrender to the mystery.
Dragos Bratasanu
The reason why we get the same partners is not because people are the same, but because we pull the dark shadow of past hurts over our eyes and we live the same all over again. We change the actors, but never the masks we give them in our play.

In the pursuit of dreams, we all have different beginnings. Your past is not negotiable. You must let go of the hope for a better past.

There ain't a man in the world cares about a woman's past until he's thinking of her in his future.

History is always a grand fantasy... To reconstruct is to invent.
Edgar Allan Poe
It is by no means an irrational fancy that, in a future existence, we shall look upon what we think our present existence, as a dream.
Emily Dickinson
Look back on Time, with kindly eyes -He doubtless did his best -How softly sinks that trembling sunIn Human Nature's West -
Emily Giffin
I was aware that we were both silently making those inevitable comparisons, putting our relationship in context. She is more this and less that. He is better or worse in these ways. It is human nature to do this--unless its your first relationship, which might be the very reason that your first relationship feels special and remains forever sacred. But the older you get, the more cynical you become, and the more complicated and convoluted the exercise is. You begin to realize that nothing is perfect, that there are trade-offs and sacrifices. The worst is when someone in your past trumps the person in the present, and you think to yourself: if I'd known this, then maybe I wouldn't have let him go.
Emory R. Frie
Stars are echoes of the past. It's important to look to them for guidance, but as long as people reach for them, they never realize the beauty and potential awaiting just in front of them.
Erik Pevernagie
The skeletons of the past must not hold back the dream of a new life, even though fear and regret, guilt and remorse may unsettle us during the effort to give our future a new home. (Into a new life)
Erik Pevernagie
Even if we have bad feelings about our past and it causes a sense of alienation, it belongs to our history. Its benchmarks are stored in the granary of our mind and crucial evaluations for the future cannot be made without consulting the archive of our memory. ( Not without the past)
Erik Pevernagie
When the past gets its teeth into our daily life, it may get to grips with an astringent reality and adjust our timeline. By recognizing ourselves in the light of our history, we become aware of what we are. (Going back to yesterday)
Erik Pevernagie
When we are time traveling, we may trip over problems from the past which distort our memory. If we are weary of dealing with lost causes or lame ducks in our history, we have to make up our mind and give up destructive thinking patterns. At that juncture, time has come to go back to the future. ( A glimpse of the future )
Erin Hanson
There are ghosts of yourself scattered everywhere,Whispers of a moment suspended in time,Where every life that you've brushed up againstNow lives with a piece of you trapped in their mind.
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
When the past is mentioned, some cry! When the past is mentioned, some ponder! When the past is mentioned, never again comes into the mind of some people. When the past is mentioned, some recall their had I known! The past is past, but its footprints never go!
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Grow past your past and march past the flag of the past!
Evinda Lepins
He uses our past to positively affect our present and secure our future.
Félix J. Palma
...the passage of time, which transformed the volatile present into that finished, unalterable painting called the past, a canvas man always executed blindly, with erratic brushstrokes that only made sense when one stepped far enough away from it to be able to admire it as a whole. -pg. 19
Fernando Pessoa
My past is everything I failed to be.
François-René de Chateaubriand
Le passé et le présent sont deux statues incomplètes: l'une a été retirée toute mutilée du débris des âges, l'autre n'a pas encore reçu sa perfection de l'avenir.

George Harrison
It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one.
George Orwell
Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.
George Santayana
Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it.

Graham Greene
He had always despised people who thought about the past. To live was to leave behind; to be as free as a shipwrecked man who has lost everything.
Gregory Maguire
Your childhood, said Yackle coaxingly, as if she could smell his thoughts. As if she could sniff out those passages he hadn't chosen to retail at drink parties. Her words lulled him. The past, even a bitter past, is usually more pungent than the present, or at least better organized in the mind.
Gugu Mona
We cannot keep on blaming the past leaders about the present circumstances. We need to be mindful that if we do nothing to improve the present circumstances, our children will also blame us in the future.

Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting.
Henrik Ibsen
People so easily forget their past selves.
Hermann Hesse
Times of terror and the deepest misery may arrive, but if there is to be any happiness in this misery it can only be a spiritual happiness, related to the past in the rescue of the culture of early ages and to the future in a serene and indefatigable championship of the spirit in a time which would otherwise completely swallow up the material.
Horace Mann
Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever.
Hugo Hamilton
People say you're born innocent, but it's not true. You inherit all kinds of things that you can do nothing about. You inherit your identity, your history, like a birthmark that you can't wash off. ... We are born with our heads turned back, but my mother says we have to face into the future now. You have to earn your own innocence, she says. You have to grow up and become innocent.
Hunter S. Thompson
Across the board... Not junkies or freaks, but people who were just as comfortable with drugs like weed, booze, or coke as we are - and we're not weird, are we? Hell no, we're just overworked professionals who need to relax now and then, have a bit of the whoop and the giggle, right?
Imania Margria
Our past is what molds us into the person we are today. It does not define us.
Iris Murdoch
The past and the present are after all so close, so almost one, as if time were an artificial teasing out of a material which longs to join, to interpenetrate, and to become heavy and very small like some of those heavenly bodies scientists tell us of.
Isaac Marion
The past is made out of facts... I guess the future is just hope.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders build the future with clays of the past. Every good moment gives them ideas; every bad moment gives them lessons.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders scan the future so it can be free of doubts and fear. They do so by not living a double standard life in the present.
Israelmore Ayivor
By means of positive imaginations, leaders bring the future to the present so that they can work on it before setting off to enter it.

As she looks through the window; while seeing him give her his world, tears rolled down her cheeks as she remembers the world she once had.
J.D. Stroube
All that is left to bring you pain, are the memories. If you face those, you'll be free. You can't spend the rest of your life hiding from yourself; always afraid that your memories will incapacitate you, and they will if you continue to bury them.
J.G. Ballard
All over the world major museums have bowed to the influence of Disney and become theme parks in their own right. The past, whether Renaissance Italy or Ancient Egypt, is re-assimilated and homogenized into its most digestible form. Desperate for the new, but disappointed with anything but the familiar, we recolonize past and future. The same trend can be seen in personal relationships, in the way people are expected to package themselves, their emotions and sexuality, in attractive and instantly appealing forms.
J.W. Dunne
In my own case, I employed this experiment mainly in order to seek for the barrier, if any, which divides our knowledge of the past from our knowledge of the future. And the odd thing was that there did not seem to be any such barrier at all.
Jamaica Kincaid
No matter how happy I had been in the past I do not long for it. The present is always the moment for which I love.

Why should we look to the past in order to prepare for the future? Because there is nowhere else to look.
James A. Murphy
Faith is about going through hell, coming out with some scars, and becoming a wiser person from the lessons you've learned along the way. You must take the scars of your past and appreciate them for what they have taught you. You also have to take the scars, the lessons of your past and not let them control your future….
James Lovegrove
Our pasts shape us,Sam.None of us the person he or she used to be,it's true, but what we are still contains a great proportion of what we once were.Nothing,not even suffering the worst kind of tragedy,alters us completely.At core,we are set in stone.
James Robertson
Our ability to look back on the past, our need or desire to make sense of it, is both a blessing and a curse; and our inability to see into the future with any degree of accuracy is, simultaneously, the thing that saves us and the thing that condemns us.
Jameson Fitzpatrick
Still, his apartment has that dreamlike qualityof feeling like home though I know it's not. Not mine anymore 
Jared Diamond
Many of our problems are broadly similar to those that undermined ... Norse Greenland, and that many other past societies also struggled to solve. Some of those past societies failed (like the Greenland Norse) and others succeeded ... The past offers us a rich database from which we can learn in order that we may keep on succeeding.
Jason Mraz
Frustration and Love can't exist in the same place at the same time, so get real and start doing what you would rather be doing in life. Love your life. All of it. Even the heavy shit that happened to you when you were 8. All of it was and IS perfect.

Jeanette Winterson
The past is magnetic. It draws us in.
Jeanette Winterson
The future is foretold from the past and the future is only possible because of the past. Without past and future, the present is partial. All time is eternally present and so all time is ours. There is no sense in forgetting and every sense in dreaming. Thus the present is made rich.
Jeffrey Fry
