“You can not bring back the past. But you certainly can not repeat it. Life is short, even if live to ninety. Live to the fullest – that’s how I feel. Appreciate every moment, every hour, every day, because they do not blink of an eye, all over. I am absolutely sure that for most people their death comes as a surprise.”

 

Bruce Willis

“You can’t undo the past… but you can certainly not repeat it.”

 

Bruce Willis

“Every passing year brings us more past futures. Here in Europe they had a Dark Age so extensive, radical and obliterative that everyone forgot how to speak Latin. It’s counterproductive to blither on about “the” future. It’s always somebody’s future, and we’re not who we used to be.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“Every passing year brings us more past futures.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“The past is a kind of future that has already happened.”

 

Bruce Sterling

“My only general rule was to steer away from things I played with the band over the past couple of tours. I was interested in re-shaping the Rising material for live shows, so people could hear the bare bones of that.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“In the past, some of the songs that were the most fun, and the most entertaining and rocking, fell by the wayside because I was concerned with what I was going to say and how I was going to say it.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Hey, little dolly with the blue jeans on, I want to ramrod with you, honey, ’til half past dawn.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“Somebody who can reckon with the past, who can live with the past in the present, and move towards the future – that’s fabulous.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“You’re born into this life paying for the sins of somebody else’s past.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“The past is never the past. It is always present. And you better reckon with it in your life and in your daily experience, or it will get you. It will get you really bad.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“You know, my music utilizes things from the past, because that’s what the past is for. It’s to learn from. It’s not to limit you, you shouldn’t be limited by it.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“That historian or scholar who delights in pointing out the weaknesses and frailties of present or past leaders destroys faith. A destroyer of faith — particularly one within the Church, and more particularly one who is employed specifically to build faith — places himself in great spiritual jeopardy. He is serving the wrong master, and unless he repents, he will not be among the faithful in the eternities. Do not spread disease germs!”

 

Boyd K. Packer

“I was a history major in school. I review the past a lot and think about music history and how culture unfolds.”

 

Bruce Pavitt

“But the most reliable indication of the future of Open Source is its past: in just a few years, we have gone from nothing to a robust body of software that solves many different problems and is reaching the million-user count. There’s no reason for us to slow down now.”

 

Bruce Perens

“I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.”

 

Bruce Lee

“I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.”

 

Bruce Lee

“The past is an illusion. You must learn to live in the present and accept yourself for what you are now. What you lack in flexibility and agility you must make up with knowledge and constant practice.”

 

Bruce Lee

“The past is no more; the future not yet. Nothing exists except the here and now. Our grand business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at our hands.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Once you look past the hype, actors are nothing more than fugitives from reality who specialize in contradiction: we are both children and hardened adults—wide-eyed pupils and jaded working stiffs.”
