"We must not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around us in awareness." 

-James Thurber, 1894 – 1961

Jeff (Phoenix HUM/114) To read this statement critically takes a mature & brave individual. When something happens that makes us upset we look back in anger, but it takes maturity to analyze that anger and ask the question why am I angry and fix it. To not move forward in fear takes bravery, we are all scared to move ahead in life, but if you proceed with an open mind and critically think about your paths the fear will disappear. To be aware is to think critically.

If only it were as easily done as said- although the past and future are not quite the issue for myself, but the awareness of whats going on at the moment...Why does it always seem to be After the fact that things are realized. Lessons learned the hard way.. too bad we couldnt just call them all as it happens!

I definitely agree with this statement we are all scared of the unknown and the obstacles in life but if we want to get ahead in life and not wear a chip on our shoulder it's better to forgive n move on than to stay angry at something or someone that we can not control.

I definitely agree with this quote, everyone always worrys about the past and the future,but are not always concerned or aware about the present and their surroundings.

Wow. What a great quote- short and precise. We must not look back on the things we, or our ancestors did to us- nor should we be afraid of what is to come, as long as we are aware now. That's what I got from it. Thank you for posting.
