    “Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (...) You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how youll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.” Looking for Alaska

    'The future overlaps with the past. Out of binary laws comes the idea that past standards are always in some way conserved, while future succeeds in realizing merely some species of development. We can only return to the past, but we can only realize the future.'

    There is neither past nor future. Both are a creation of the mind. Memory is creator of the past and desire is the creator of the future. As desire, a thing of the known is the shadow of the memory, so future is the shadow of the past. Truth is ever unknown and therefore always new and fresh present at present only.

    'Realize that even the future is a dynamic place. The present expresses the future in terms of the past. The past, when it is close to the present, is close to the future. Gear the present to the future by using the past! If you can, imagine that the past is still alive! Imagine that the future already has consciousness! Attempt to live the 'eternal present'! The way to gauge the eternal present is your level of health and well-being! If you are even marginally successful, you can have a long life! '
    (- -Nathan Coppedge, The Time Technique)
