“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” – Thomas Jefferson
While the past is what brought us to the present, we are not beholden to it. The past does not dictate what we could become and what is possible. Indeed, the dreams offered by the future are worth striving for. The possibilities of what’s ahead are worth reaching for. What would you rather have? Accepting the definitions of the past? Or, the blank page of the future on which we could write on right now in the present?
