#1. If they weren't nice to you when you were growing up, you'll probably be attracted to partners who aren't nice to you now. - Author: Kate McGahan
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Kate McGahan
#2. A personal mission statement is based on Habit Two of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People called "Begin with the End in Mind." In one's life, the most effective way to begin with the end in mind is to develop a mission statement, one that focuses on what you want to be in terms of character and what you want to do in reference to contributions and achievements. It is based upon self-chosen values and principles. Victor Hugo once said, "There is nothing as powerful as an idea whose time has come." A mission statement is that idea. You may call it a credo or a philosophy; or you may call it a purpose statement. It's not important what it is called. What is important is that vision, purpose, and values are more powerful, more significant, and more influential than the baggage of the past or the accumulated noise of the present. - Author: Stephen R. Covey
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Stephen R. Covey
#3. And our resistance against changing our habits of thought is immense and unrelenting. If we try, briefly, we find it ass vexing and unrewarding as writing a letter with the left hand. What we are used to is comfortable; what is comfortable is good; and what is good is right - this is the unspoken belief of almost all people everywhere. When a scientist, however, tackles a problem that has hitherto seemed insoluble, he abandons all his preconceptions, and all the preconceptions of the past. Only when he begins to question the basic assumptions he has always held can he make an utterly fresh start, unencumbered by the intellectual baggage of the past. - Author: Sydney J. Harris
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#4. I've always been fascinated by the concept of reincarnation. I learned that many brilliant people were interested in reincarnation, including Carl Jung. I'm a big Jungian. So I began writing novels involving theories integrating past and present, even if the past element in the novel took place 500 or 1,000 years ago. - Author: M.J. Rose
Baggage Of The Past quotes by M.J. Rose
#5. The fact disclosed by a survey of the past that majorities have been wrong must not blind us to the complementary fact that majorities have usually not been entirely wrong. - Author: Herbert Spencer
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Herbert Spencer
#6. Right actions for the future are the best apologies for wrong ones in the past - the best evidence of regret for them that we can offer, or the world receive. - Author: Tryon Edwards
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Tryon Edwards
#7. In charting our course to the future, we are mindful of our path from the past. - Author: Brad Henry
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Brad Henry

Baggage Of The Past quotes by Kevan Hall
#9. In a clear brook
With joyful haste
The whimsical trout
Shot past me like an arrow
I play the line of the song, I play the leaps and plunges of the right hand of the piano, I am the trout, the angler, the brook, the observer. - Author: Vikram Seth
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Vikram Seth
#10. May it not also be that the cause of civilization itself will be defended by the skill and devotion of a few thousand airmen? There never has been, I suppose, in all the world, in all the history of war, such an opportunity for youth. The Knights of the Round Table, the Crusaders, all fall back into the past. - Author: Winston Churchill
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Winston Churchill
#11. Heimthra' was the word used for longing: for home, for the past, for things to be as they once had been. Even the gods were said to know that yearning, from when the worlds were broken. - Author: Guy Gavriel Kay
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Guy Gavriel Kay
#12. Don't be silly." I turned to my suitcase, pulling out my pajamas. "I'm just going to go change . . ." He coughed down at his own suitcase, open on a chair in the corner of the room. "Of course." I changed, washed my face, put my hair up, pulled my hair back down, put it up again. Moisturized. I brushed my teeth, used the loo, washed my hands, moisturized again. Brushed my teeth again. I stalled. And then, stepping out, I let him past me to do the same routine, realizing as he walked into the loo that he had only a pair of shorts in his hand. He slept shirtless. Fuck me sideways. However, when he finally came out of the restroom, Jensen was still wearing his T-shirt, to my enormous dismay. "I thought you slept shirtless." What. What did I just say? He looked up at me in surprise. "I mean, I usually do, but . . . - Author: Christina Lauren
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Christina Lauren
#13. The past, future, or now, I'll find you - don't worry how. I have my ways, and one of these days. I'm gonna find you. I'm gonna find you. - Author: Shani Petroff
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Shani Petroff
#14. the vile political rhetoric that has been ongoing in the USA for the past few years has made me doubt my reasons for becoming a U.S. citizen a few times - but not enough to change my mind. Despite what the world may think of America, the truth is that more people want to get in than want to get out. - Author: Gudjon Bergmann
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Gudjon Bergmann
#15. The war, therefore if we judge it by the standards of previous wars, is merely an imposture. It is like the battles between certain ruminant animals whose horns are incapable of hurting one another. But though it is unreal it is not meaningless. It eats up the surplus of consumable goods, and it helps to preserve the special mental atmosphere that the hierarchical society needs. War, it will be seen, is now a purely internal affair. In the past, the ruling groups of all countries, although they might recognize their common interest and therefore limit the destructiveness of war, did fight against one another, and the victor always plundered the vanquished. In our own day they are not fighting against one another at all. The war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects, and the object of the war is not to make or prevent conquests of territory, but to keep the structure of society intact. The very word "war," therefore, has become misleading. It would probably be accurate to say that by becoming continuous war has ceased to exist. The peculiar pressure that is exerted on human beings between the Neolithic Age and the early twentieth century has disappeared and has been replaced by something quite different. The effect would be much the same if the three superstates, instead of fighting one another, should agree to live in perpetual peace, each inviolate within its own boundaries. For in that case each would still be a self-contained universe, freed forever from t - Author: George Orwell
Baggage Of The Past quotes by George Orwell
#16. Sometimes we are very convinced that what we went through needs to be re-lived so we end up going back and forth to the demons of the past and eventually we fail to get over them. - Author: Stephen Richards
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Stephen Richards
#17. Neurotics think of the past with resentment, and the future with dread; the present just doesn't exist. - Author: Mignon McLaughlin
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Mignon McLaughlin
#18. The past is such a subtle thing. [But] in the end, nothing else exists, everything is made of the past, even the future. - Author: Natalie Clifford Barney
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Natalie Clifford Barney
#19. That was a thing of wolves; they could know the past and the future, yet keep their attention on the hunt. Could he do the same? Allow himself to be consumed when needed, yet keep balance in other parts of his life? - Author: Robert Jordan
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Robert Jordan
#20. I had a terrible premonition. His flight was to Miami. The old news footage flashed through my mind of Air Florida Flight 90 to Miami that went down in a freezing rain. It showed pieces of the wings and smashed fuselage floating in a huge hole in the ice next to the Fourteenth Street Bridge. A helicopter trying to lift a survivor from the black water. Rescuers watching helplessly from the shore. I tried to call him, but the network was down. I'd seen this fearsome power of the past before, how it can rise up without warning and strike the living with unerring timing. Later Lorenzo called from Miami and said it was a rough flight but they made it. I was happy that for once my intuition was wrong. - Author: J. J. Jorgens
Baggage Of The Past quotes by J. J. Jorgens
#21. The only way to heal from the pain
of the past is to walk through that pain
in the present. It's terrifying, I know.
It feels safer to just let the pain continue
to smolder in the darkest parts of yourself.
But the dark parts need tending, too, my friend.
Don't be afraid to breathe life back into those
embers of old pain, to rekindle the fires of
unhealed hurts. The flames aren't there to burn
you. They are there to light your way through
pain to healing. You can walk through courageous
and confident or shaking in your boots. It doesn't
matter. Just walk through it. Hurt will transform
into hope, wounds into wisdom, suffering into
scars that tell of battles won and lost and of a
human who survived it all. - Author: L.R. Knost
Baggage Of The Past quotes by L.R. Knost
#22. Over the past 8 years, I have stripped my life down. I don't need as much as I thought I did. It was hard at first to make that change. I had to have faith and patience. And so, I did.
Now, I have God and great people in my life. Everything else just seems to follow. Sometimes we don't understand about the need to live more simply. We can make appointments all day long, 7 days a week. We can even schedule and plan for our deaths.
I was fortunate to be freed to really be myself again, while there is still time and something left of me. And now, up here, there's nothing but me (and Kilo) and the sky and a million billion stars. And once again, I am free to dream... - Author: Jose N Harris
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Jose N Harris
#23. Now, with the glamour of the past upon them we are inclined to look back on old world festivities with regret and consider present day dances as a poor substitute for the old. From an artistic point of view, they maybe, but in individual freedom and independence of spirit they mark a stage upward. - Author: Flora Thompson
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Flora Thompson
#24. And there is an earlier Wilson cycle, too, a billion years old, entrapped alongside the Appalachians: the Grenville, which rises to the surface in Central Park, New York, to remind us that the human and urban is no more than foam on the sea of the past. - Author: Richard Fortey
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Richard Fortey
#25. In other words, time was a kind of palimpsest, traces of the past peeking through the present, only to be written over in the future again. - Author: Melissa De La Cruz
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Melissa De La Cruz
#26. Lift the curtain and 'the State' reveals itself as a little group of fallible men in Whitehall, making guesses about the future, influenced by political prejudices and partisan prejudices, and working on projections drawn from the past by a staff of economists. - Author: Enoch Powell
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Enoch Powell
#27. We are not myths of the past, ruins in the jungle, or zoos. We are people and we want to be respected, not to be victims of intolerance and racism. - Author: Rigoberta Menchu
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Rigoberta Menchu
#28. I don't think we can build much of a future,' says Shara, 'without knowing the truth of the past. It's time to be honest about what the world really was, and what it is now. - Author: Robert Jackson Bennett
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Robert Jackson Bennett
#29. From the Great Depression, to the stagflation of the seventies, to the current economic crisis caused by the housing bubble, every economic downturn suffered by this country over the past century can be traced to Federal Reserve policy. The Fed has followed a consistent policy of flooding the economy with easy money, leading to a misallocation of resources and an artificial 'boom' followed by a recession or depression when the Fed-created bubble bursts. - Author: Ron Paul
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Ron Paul
#30. Perhaps I shouldn't call it shit. That's a bit crude. I don't really despise Christianity or even the Roman Church, and certainly not the incontrovertible glory of the Middle Ages. What I do despise is the contemporary inclination to flop to the knees and crawl back into the past, to shy from what seem like impossible problems in order to bury the head, asshole aloft and twitching, in the Sands of Time. Cowardice, I calls it. Illusion-seeking. Womb-crawling. And treason. Desertion in the face of the enemy.
Strong words indeed. But I've always been rather a blunt, tough, plain-spoken type ... - Author: Edward Abbey
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Edward Abbey
#31. In the past, secularists sought to challenge dogma by the use of rational argument, claiming, for example, that miracles described in the Bible are scientifically impossible. - Author: Stephen Kinzer
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#32. Definitely I know that every negative condition of the past is cleared away from my consciousness. I no longer think about it, see it, or believe in it. Nor do I believe that it has any effect whatsoever in my experience. Yesterday is not, tomorrow is not, but today, bright with hope and filled with promise, is mine. Today I live. - Author: Ernest Holmes
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Ernest Holmes
#33. The truth is that there's no such thing as a personal problem. If you've got a problem, chances are millions of other people have had it in the past, have it now, and are going to have it in the future. Likely people you know too. That doesn't minimize the problem or mean that it shouldn't hurt. It doesn't mean you aren't legitimately a victim in some circumstances - Author: Mark Manson
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Mark Manson
#34. Worry is a waste of energy. It cant change the past. It cant control the future. It only makes today miserable - Author: Rick Warren
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Rick Warren
#35. I like the immaterial world. I like to live among thoughts and images of the past and the possible, and even of the impossible, now and then. - Author: Thomas Love Peacock
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Thomas Love Peacock
#36. Just as God is hidden, so are the inner secrets of Her divine message. We read about them, hear them uttered, but we cannot possibly comprehend their meaning unless we have a direct experience of their truth. That is why to be able to talk to our souls we use meditation, we use rituals, symbols and signs, we use dreams and careful observation of souls' subconscious messages. The mystics of our past help us in this quest. From Zarathustra who comes from the ancient Persian spiritual culture, to Pythagoras who comes from the Greco-Latin cultural epoch, to Lao Tzu, Buddha and Christ, they all carry the keys to the secrets of the most varied mysteries. - Author: Nataša Pantović
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Nataša Pantović
#37. All cultures forged by nations - the noble indigenous past of America, the brilliant civilization of Europe, the wise history of Asian nations, and the ancestral wealth of Africa and Oceania - are corroded by the American way of life. In this way, neoliberalism imposes the destruction of nations and groups of nations in order to reconstruct them according to a single model. This is a planetary war, of the worst and cruelest kind, waged against humanity. - Author: Subcomandante Marcos
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
#38. Then he opened the Bible Queen Alexandra had given them and ripped out the flyleaf and the page containing the Twenty-third Psalm. He also tore out the page from the Book of Job with this verse on it:

Out of whose womb came the ice?
And the hoary frost of Heaven, who hath gendered it?
The waters are hid as with a stone.
And the face of the deep is frozen.

The he laid the Bible in the snow and walked away.
It was a dramatic gesture, but that was the way Shackleton wanted it. From studying the outcome of past expeditions, he believed that those that burdened themselves with equipment to meet every contingency had fared much worse than those that had sacrificed total preparedness for speed. - Author: Alfred Lansing
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Alfred Lansing
#39. Even if we wanted to remake higher education," assert professors and administrators alike, "we don't think there is anything that can replace what we already have." Of course, the fact that in the past everyone claimed "this time is different," does not rule out the possibility that this time really is different. - Author: Richard A. Demillo
Baggage Of The Past quotes by Richard A. Demillo
