, by The Incredibles Edna Mode (Movie quote)
I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now.
C. S. Lewis
Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different...
from Walter White in Season 5 Episode 9 (Series quote) Breaking Bad
You need to stop focusing on the darkness behind you. The past is the past, nothing can change what we've done.
in Sarah Dessen (Book quote) Just Listen
Because this is what happens when you try to run from the past. It just doesn’t catch up, it overtakes... blotting out the future.
from Ted Mosby in Season 8 Episode 23 (Series quote) How I Met Your Mother
Kids, you can't cling to the past. Because no matter how tight you hold on... it's already gone.
2 (Game quote) Max Payne
There are no choices. Nothing but a straight line.
The Illusion comes afterwards, when you ask 'Why me?' and 'What if?'
When you look back, see the branches, like a pruned bonsai tree, or a forked lightening.
If you had done something differently, it wouldn't be you.
It would be someone else looking back, asking a different set of questions.
, by The Lion King Rafiki (Movie quote) : 'Ouh. Jeez, what was that for?'
Simba : 'It doesn't matter, it's in the past.'
Rafiki : 'Yeah, but it still hurts.'
Simba : 'Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.' Rafiki
, by Warcraft Medivh (Game quote)
The former can advise the latter, but the latter must be free to challenge the former, to avoid what happened.
2, by Max Payne Max Payne (Game quote)
The past is a gaping hole. Your only chance is to turn around and face it. But it's like kissing the lips of your dead love. Darkness waiting in the hole of her mouth.
, by The Lion King Rafiki (Movie quote)
Oh yes. The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.
- B.o.B. Airplanes (Lyric)
I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
To go back to a place much simpler than this
- Christopher Lee People Change (Lyric)
Can't love until you had a loss
I've lost many and I paid the cost Step myself up and I ain't lookin' back Life is too short to be stuck in the past
