Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter — tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning —
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
—F. Scott Fitzgerald in The Great Gatsby
Today is today, yesterday is yesterday, the future is the time that is left.
Right actions in the future are the best apologies for bad actions
in the past.
I look to the future because that's where I'm going to spend the rest of my life.
We are at the very beginning of time for the human race. It is not unreasonable that we grapple with problems. But there are tens of thousands of years in the future. Our responsibility is to do what we can, learn what we can, improve the solutions, and pass them on.
Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
He who would be a great soul in the future, must be a great soul now.
