Yesterday quote

Yesterday,
All my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is God's gift, that's why we call it the present.

Swift flies our time on pinions fleet,
Like vapours on the breeze;
The transient bliss we now call sweet,
The passing moments seize.
The gilded joy, the present hour,
Soon wing themselves away;
Departing like the fading flower
That pleas'd us Yesterday.

I don't really think about anything too much. I live in the present. I move on. I don't think about what happened yesterday. If I think too much, it kind of freaks me out.

One of the sad things, I think, about the younger generation, quite frankly, is they have less sense of yesterday. And if you don't know who you were, you don't really know who you are.

Our yesterdays
Are like a lonely and a ruined land
Wherein a breeze of recollection sighs--
A fading land to which is no return.

In sorrow's heart, asleep.

Yesterday is not a milestone that has been passed, but a daystone on the beaten track of the years, and irremediably part of us, within us, heavy and dangerous. We are not merely more weary because of yesterday, we are other, no longer what we were before the calamity of yesterday.

then downward
tumbles yesterday
as in a well
fall's yesterday's water,
into the cistern
