About this Quote
This quote motivates us to take the very best of the past and utilize it to inform our choices in the present. We ought to learn from our errors and successes, and use that knowledge to make much better decisions in the future. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that the past is gone and the future is uncertain. We ought to not dwell on the past or worry about the future, but instead concentrate on today moment. Living in the present permits us to maximize our time and enjoy today moment. We need to take the lessons of the past and use them to maximize today. By doing this, we can produce a much better future for ourselves and those around us.
