Random quote of the day:

“Must living always be in the past, must all activity spring from the past, is all relationship the outcome of the past, is living the complex memory of the past? That is all we know—the past modifying the present. And the future is the outcome of this past acting through the present. So the past, the present and the future are all the past. And this past is what we call living.”

—J. Krishnamurti, “How To Live In This World,” The Urgency of Change
