past

A Quote by Allen Lacy on memory, past, and seasons

Gardeners , like everyone else, live second by second and minute by minute. What we see at one particular moment is then and there before us. But there is a second way of seeing. Seeing with the eye of memory, not the eye of our anatomy, calls up days and seasons past and years gone by.

A Quote by Alfred North Whitehead on future, knowledge, past, and present

The only use of a knowledge of the past is to equip us for the present. The present contains all that there is. It is holy ground; for it is the past, and it is the future.

A Quote by Alexander Hamilton on character, democracy, enemies, fanaticism, hypocrisy, past, politics, popularity, principles, success, and truth

Perhaps myself the first, at some expense of popularity, to unfold the true character of Jefferson, it is too late for me to become his apologist. Nor can I have any disposition to do it. I admit that his politics are tinctured with fanaticism, that he is too much in earnest in his democracy, that he has been a mischievous enemy to the principle measures of our past administration, that he is crafty & persevering in his objects, that he is not scrupulous about the means of success, nor very mindful of truth, and that he is a contemptible hypocrite.

A Quote by Alexander Emmanuel (Alex) Rodriguez on day, dogs, future, goals, learning, life, needs, past, people, play, present, and thinking

I'm focussing on what I haven't attained, not what I have. A lot has come to me early. I don't want to get consumed with that. Winners live in the present tense. People who come up short are consumed with future or past. I want to be living in the now. My goal is to play one full game in the now, but I haven't even gotten past the first inning yet. I start thinking about where my mom is or if my dogs have been fed. The average human has 2,000 thoughts a day. The really accomplished have 1,500 because you can focus longer. I need to learn how to focus longer.

Alex Rodriguez (1975 -)

A Quote by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi de Nagyrapolt on beginning, conscience, day, justice, life, money, past, research, scientists, society, and work

Basic research may seem very expensive. I am a well-paid scientist. My hourly wage is equal to that of a plumber, but sometimes my research remains barren of results for weeks, months or years and my conscience begins to bother me for wasting the taxpayer's money. But in reviewing my life's work, I have to think that the expense was not wasted. Basic research, to which we owe everything, is relatively very cheap when compared with other outlays of modern society. The other day I made a rough calculation which led me to the conclusion that if one were to add up all the money ever spent by man on basic research, one would find it to be just about equal to the money spent by the Pentagon this past year.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on future, illusions, past, and present

The distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on belief, departure, future, illusions, past, people, physics, present, and world

Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics,know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.
