The future is a fog that is still hanging out over the sea, a boat that floats home or does not.

B. R. Ambedkar
Don’t hurry anything. Don’t worry about the future. Don’t worry about what progress you’re making. Just be entirely content to be aware of what is.
Alan Watts
As chairman of the Senate subcommittee responsible for NASA appropriations, I say not a penny for this nutty fantasy.
William Proxmire
Literacy is much more than an educational priority – it is the ultimate investment in the future and the first step towards all the new forms of literacy required in the twenty-first century. We wish to see a century where every child is able to read and to use this skill to gain autonomy.
Irina Bokova
God is more interested in your future and your relationships than you are.
Billy Graham

Elon Musk
…deficit consumption is, in effect, drawing down on the capital entitlements of future generations
Jonathon Porritt

Jackson Browne
The best way to predict the future is to invent it.
Alan Kay
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
Dale Carnegie
Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future.
Steve Jobs

Jose Andres
There is my love… of the young artists of my country who can carry on the dreams and ideals into the future.
Joseph Plaskett
I remember being young in the 1960s… we had a great sense of the future, a great big hope. This is what is missing in the youth today. This being able to dream and to change the world.
Bernardo Bertolucci
Greet every morning with open arms and say thanks every night with a full heart. Each day is a precious gift to be savored and used, not left unopened and hoarded for a future that may never come.

Seneca the Younger
It is absurd to say that the age of miracles is past. It has not yet begun.

Nigel Kneale
He who controls the past controls the future.
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.
Corrie Ten Boom
I don’t know what’s coming next and neither does anyone else. It’s something that we do have to face but the thing is that a lot of people don’t want to face it. And there’s denial. If somebody says it, like me, everybody feels a little better that they can discuss it.
Art Buchwald
We can do things the cheap way, the simple way, for the short-term and without regard for the future. Or, we can make the extra effort, do the hard work, absorb the criticism and make decisions that will cause a better future.
Mike Rounds
You can choose a future where more Americans have the chance to gain the skills they need to compete, no matter how old they are or how much money they have. Education was the gateway to opportunity for me. It was the gateway for Michelle. And now more than ever, it is the gateway to a middle-class life.
Barack Obama
Children of the future, watching empires fall. Madness the cup they drink from, self destruction the toll.
Ozzy Osbourne
Existence is no more than the precarious attainment of relevance in an intensely mobile flux of past, present, and future.
Susan Sontag
People talk about doom-laden scenarios happening in the future: they are happening in Africa now. You can see it perfectly clearly. Periodic famines are due to too many people living on land that can’t sustain them.
David Attenborough
Future peace, prosperity and confidence depend not just on ourselves but on the success of all nations. Hence, we are all partners, no matter what our backgrounds, cultures, faiths and histories.

Seneca the Younger
Never make bad predictions, especially about the futture.
Casey Stengel
Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future.
Saul Alinsky
I think chatbots are the future of engagement between a fan and a brand or celebrity.
Christina Milian
I’m a lousy predictor of the future.
Guy Kawasaki
I think the American Dream should be about a greater progressive legislation that allows for what I call a necessary future world of cooperational humanism.

Henry R. Luce

Mother Angelica
We need to look to the future. You can’t come up with new things unless you constantly forget the past. There’s no reason to keep wearing the same pair of pants.
Andrew Lau
A mother’s happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.

I touch the future. I teach.
Christa McAuliffe
All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; and hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse.
Benjamin Franklin
Nothing is impossible for a man with a strong will. The possible is in store only for a man who loves the future. There is no word “impossible” in the Korean language.
Kim Jong Il
The future is not something we enter. The future is something we create.
Leonard Sweet
A wise God shrouds the future in obscure darkness.

Andre Gide
In times of pain, when the future is too terrifying to contemplate and the past too painful to remember, I have learned to pay attention to right now. The precise moment I was in was always the only safe place for me.
Julia Cameron
When you get just a complete sense of blackness or void ahead of you, that somehow the future looks an impossible place to be, and the direction you are going seems to have no purpose, there is this word despair which is a very awful thing to feel.
Stephen Fry
The idea of personal salvation is intensely repugnant to me when it is not absurd. Imagine Roosevelt, the big brute, preserving his personality in a future state and swaggering about as a celestial Rough Rider!
George Bernard Shaw
Our wisest long-term investment is not in the dirty polluting fossil fuels from the past, but in the clean energy of the future.
London Breed
I was planning on my future as a homeless person. I had a really good spot picked out.

Barack Obama
My parents taught me to never give up and to always believe that my future could be whatever I dreamt it to be.
Susana Martinez
Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved. It is a type of confidence. And it is fragile. It can be blackened by fear and superstition.
Bernard Beckett
Most dystopian, classic and contemporary, paints a future world that puts a twist on present society – a future world that could plausibly happen.

I have been judged to be a pessimist but what abyss of ignorance and low egoism is not hidden in one who thinks that Man is the god of himself and that his future can only be triumphant?
Eugenio Montale
A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future.
Albert Einstein
The future interests me – I’m going to spend the rest of my life there.
Mark Twain
Let’s go invent tomorrow…
Steve Jobs
On one hand, I’m an optimistic pessimist. On the other, I’m a pessimistic optimist. But while there’s life, there’s still hope, and I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing if I didn’t think there was still hope.
Helen Caldicott
The hours we pass with happy prospects in view are more pleasing than those crowded with fruition.
Oliver Goldsmith

Oscar de la Renta
God isn’t present in the past or future. The great ‘I Am’ is in the present moment. When I claim that presence, I can get through anything today.
Regina Brett
I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on the frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond words. When I was a boy, we were taught to be discrete and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly wise and impatient of restraint.
Tomorrow will be a new day.
Miguel de Cervantes
The spirit of man, which God inspired, cannot together perish with this corporeal clod.

Lois Frankel
At every level the greatest obstacle to transforming the world is that we lack the clarity and imagination to conceive that it could be different

Man is better without knowledge of things to come, for what is to be will be, and man can neither avert nor hasten. It is better to go in the dark when the road must pass a lion and there is no other road.
Robert E. Howard
If we want to reap the harvest of peace and justice in the future, we will have to sow seeds of nonviolence, here and now, in the present.
