Author: Angela Richardson

Author: Anthony Horowitz

Author: Colin S. Smith
6. "But suffering from a life-threatening disease also helped me have a different attitude and perspective. It has given a new intensity to life, for I realize how much I used to take for granted-the love and devotion of my wife, the laughter and playfulness of my grandchildren, the glory of a splendid sunset, the dedication of my colleagues. The disease has helped me acknowledge my own mortality, with deep thanksgiving for the extraordinary things that have happened in my life, not least in recent times. What a spectacular vindication it has been, in the struggle against apartheid, to live to see freedom come, to have been involved in finding the truth and reconciling the differences of those who are the future of our nation."
Author: Desmond Tutu
7. "In the tired hand of a dying man, Theodore Senior had written: "The 'Machine politicians' have shown their colors... I feel sorry for the country however as it shows the power of partisan politicians who think of nothing higher than their own interests, and I feel for your future. We cannot stand so corrupt a government for any great length of time."
Author: Edmund Morris
8. "Madness? Categories such as that do not exist – as far as I'm concerned, everything is healthy, except for fruit and vegetables. In art, too, madness comes in handy, in the art of the insane, and soon there will no doubt be artists who inflict wounds upon themselves, they will be the most modern of all modern artists. For example, you're injured and you go for a walk along the street and display your injury to a police inspector, calling it a work of art, he does not understand this, and the gulf between him and the artist (who is at one and the same time his own work of art) becomes immeasurable, never to be crossed. Submission to something you didn't preach yourself is no good, I quote. Because Man must burst his ridiculous bonds, which consist of what is supposedly current reality with a prospect of a future reality of scarcely any greater value. Quote: Each and every full minute bears within it the negation of centuries of lame, broken history. End of quote."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
9. "The claim to a national culture in the past does not only rehabilitate that nation and serve as a justification for the hope of a future national culture. In the sphere of psycho-affective equilibrium it is responsible for an important change in the native. Perhaps we haven't sufficiently demonstrated that colonialism is not satisfied merely with holding a people in its grip and emptying the native's brain of all form and content. By a kind of perverted logic, it turns to the past of the oppressed people, and distorts, disfigures, and destroys it. This work of devaluing pre-colonial history takes on a dialectical significance today."
Author: Frantz Fanon
10. "Now in history there is no Revolution that is not a Restoration. Among the many things that leave me doubtful about the modern habit of fixing eyes on the future, none is stronger than this: that all the men in history who have really done anything with the future have had their eyes fixed upon the past."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
11. "I can't really tell how old I am, only that I'm too young to wonder if I asked the right questions in the past, and too old to wish the future will bring me all the answers."
Author: Gabriel Bá
12. "Great wrongs have been done you, but the past is dust. The future may yet be won .."
Author: George R.R. Martin
13. "We are being tough in saying it is a duty on the unemployed in future not only to be available for work - and not to shirk work - but also to get the skills for work. That is a new duty we are introducing."
Author: Gordon Brown
14. "We are excited about the music, past and present and future, and are really looking forward to playing."
Author: Graham Nash
15. "Memory really matters...only if it binds together the imprint of the past and the project of the future, if it enables us to act without forgetting what we wanted to do, to become without ceasing to be, and to be without ceasing to become."
Author: Italo Calvino
16. "If we wish our state's growth to continue, then our future will increasingly be with industries that require a highly skilled and technically proficient workforce."

20. "THE subject of this Essay is not the so-called Liberty of the Will, so unfortunately opposed to the misnamed doctrine of Philosophical Necessity; but Civil, or Social Liberty: the nature and limits of the power which can be legitimately exercised by society over the individual. A question seldom stated, and hardly ever discussed, in general terms, but which profoundly influences the practical controversies of the age by its latent presence, and is likely soon to make itself recognized as the vital question of the future. It is so far from being new, that, in a certain sense, it has divided mankind, almost from the remotest ages, but in the stage of progress into which the more civilized portions of the species have now entered, it presents itself under new conditions, and requires a different and more fundamental treatment."
Author: John Stuart Mill
21. "This is my universe, my time, my world. There is no going back to what was. There is only the future."
Author: Karen Lord
22. "I can't even say I've begun yet, but I'm trying on the idea that there is a book in my future."
Author: Kathy Mattea
23. "But, look, it is good to have a dream so long as you do not let it gnaw at the substance of your present. I have seen men consumed by their dreams, and it is a sour business. If you cling too tightly to a dream—a poodle bitch or a personal sausage chef or whatever—then you miss the felicity of your heart beating and the smell of the grass growing and the sounds lizards make when you run through the neighborhood with our friend. Your dream should be like a favorite old bone that you savor and cherish and chew upon gently. Then, rather than stealing from you a wasted sigh or the life of an idle hour, it nourishes you, and you become strangely contented by nostalgia for a possible future, so juicy with possibility and redolent of sautéed garlic and decadent slabs of bacon that you feel full when you've eaten nothing. And then, one fine day when the sun smiles upon your snout, then the time is right, you bite down hard. The dream is yours. And then youchew on the next one."
Author: Kevin Hearne
24. "To strengthen the connection between your conscious mind and your subconscious mind is to gain access to a map and compass to help you move towards your dream. To gain access to the subconscious mind is to gain the ability to see and create the future, the ability to shift the present, and the ability to alter your own perceptions of the past."
Author: Kevin Michel
25. "There is a hideous invention called the Dewey Decimal System. And you have to look up your topic in books and newspapers. Pages upon pages upon pages…" Uncle Will frowned. "Didn't they teach you how to go about research in that school of yours?" "No. But I can recite ‘The Battle Hymn of the Republic' while making martinis." "I weep for the future." "There's where the martinis come in."
Author: Libba Bray
26. "But the primary reason for wanting the dollar to become more competitive in the near future is that we may need an increase in exports this year and in 2007 to sustain the economy's current pace of expansion."
Author: Martin Feldstein
27. "If that is what this world is, what humans are... There is no future. Understanding and faith... If you take those away, all that's left is fear. I can't accept immoral methods or giving up."
Author: Masashi Kishimoto
28. "When I was campaigning, I told the people if nothing happens under my mandate it will still be a positive thing because my mandate will be used as a rupture between the past and the future."
Author: Michel Martelly
29. "The Pentagon has been looking into the possibility of developing "smart dust," dust-sized particles that have tiny sensors inside that can be sprayed over a battlefield to give commanders real-time information. In the future it is conceivable that "smart dust" might be sent to the nearby stars."
Author: Michio Kaku
30. "Allow intelligent design into science textbooks, lecture halls, and laboratories, and the cost to the frontier of scientific discovery—the frontier that drives the economies of the future—would be incalculable. I don't want students who could make the next major breakthrough in renewable energy sources or space travel to have been taught that anything they don't understand, and that nobody yet understands, is divinely constructed and therefore beyond their intellectual capacity. The day that happens, Americans will just sit in awe of what we don't understand, while we watch the rest of the world boldly go where no mortal has gone before."
Author: Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Author: Norbert Wiener
33. "You can't plan for the future, because some guy's going to land in a spaceship with three heads and a big beak and take over everything."

Author: Pearl S. Buck

Author: Rachel Gibson
36. "Hence, in desiring, the more the enjoyment is delayed, the more fancy begins to weave about the object images of future fruition, and to clothe the desired object with properties calculated to inflame the impulse."

38. "I'm already the most fortunate girl in the world, so I have zero expectations for what the future will bring."
Author: Shailene Woodley
39. "A freedom which is interested only in denying freedom must be denied. And it is not true that the recognition of the freedom of others limits my own freedom: to be free is not to have the power to do anything you like; it is to be able to surpass the given toward an open future; the existence of others as a freedom defines my situation and is even the condition of my own freedom. I am oppressed if I am thrown into prison, but not if I am kept from throwing my neighbor into prison."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir

Author: Śrī Aurobindo

Author: Suzanne Collins
43. "But if objects for gratitude and admiration are our desire, do they notpresent themselves every hour to our eyes? Do we not see a fair creationprepared to receive us the instant we are born —a world furnished toour hands, that cost us nothing? Is it we that light up the sun; that pourdown the rain; and fill the earth with abundance? Whether we sleep orwake, the vast machinery of the universe still goes on. Are these things,and the blessings they indicate in future, nothing to, us? Can our grossfeelings be excited by no other subjects than tragedy and suicide? Or isthe gloomy pride of man become so intolerable, that nothing can flatter itbut a sacrifice of the Creator?"
Author: Thomas Paine

Author: Tom Turner
45. "And so began something that had not quite begun and would not soon end, with many people in many places moving off in directions and on missions which they all mistakenly thought they understood.

Energetically you can create and destroy your immediate set of circumstances under the same laws.

Overcome that which has weakened your state of mind and conquer the thoughts and actions that you have let lead your life."
