PAST, living in
One man said to his friend: "Say, you look depressed. What are you thinking about?"
"My future," was the quick answer.
"What makes it look so hopeless?"
Christian Medical Society Journal, Winter, 1978,
Do not say, "Why were the former days better than these?" You do not move ahead by constantly looking in a rear view
mirror. The past is a rudder to guide you, not an anchor to drag you. We must learn
from the past but not live in the past.
Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe.
Men who live in the past remind me of a toy I'm sure all of you have seen. The toy is a small wooden bird called the "Floogie
Bird." Around the Floogie Bird's neck is a label reading, "I fly backwards, I don't care where I'm going. I just want to see
where I've been."
Harry S. Truman.
