If one is studying the Future, one should make sure they do not repeat past mistakes.
However, if they continue to double-check the past for too long, the Future will slip between their fingers.
So take a glance, see your destination, and concentrate on where you are currently stepping.
Lost love or borrowed time....maybe.
My physics teacher in high school had the following in huge letters behind him on the wall in back of his desk. Quote : " Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it."
He didn't originate it , I read this same quote years later somewhere else.
idk, ive been asking my history teacher that FOREVER >>
imo they arent mutually exclusive
Learning from mistakes, and remembering what went right.
