“ You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. ”
You can't look back - you just have to put the past behind you, and find something better in your future.
Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.
You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.
Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future too.
