Everything in the past is judged by the outcome of the last event.
Every advantage in the past is judged in the light of the final issue.
Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.
(Brooks Atkinson said)
If you want the present to be different from the past, study the past.
(Baruch Spinoza said)
Blaming things on the past dies not make them better.
