A Quote by Sigmund Freud on experience, present, past, future, vantage points, and distance

In general people experience their present naively, as it were, without being able to form an estimate of its contents; they have first to put themselves at a distance from it - the present, that is to say, must have become the past - before it can yield points of vantage from which to judge the future. 

Sigmund Freud (1856 - 1939)

A Quote by Sol Luckman on life, imagination, imaginary, change, parting, leaving, flux, distance, fate, time, crossroads, fiction, past, present, future, adventure, character, picaresque, road, travel, author, writing, luke soloman, and free novel

I didn’t look back. I couldn’t. Such is life, imaginary or otherwise: a continuous parting of ways, a constant flux of approximation and distanciation, lines of fate intersecting at a point which is no-time, a theoretical crossroads fictitiously “present,” an unstable ice floe forever drifting between was and will be. The Adventure called and I followed with my thumb like a character being written by an intractable author. Which, of course, I was.

A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on distance, others, and humanity

Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)

A Quote by Elizabeth Berg on older, lives, diverging, farther apart, crying, and distance

It feels like now we are so much older, and our lives are diverging like those geometry proofs where the two lines never touch, they just keep growing farther apart... This is why I'm crying, the distance from what you feel to what you say, how it will always be like that.

Elizabeth Berg
