    “Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.”

    -Lewis B Smedes

    I think this is good for people who can't seem to move on.

    These are two of my favorite quotes, though they may not be what you're really looking for:

    "A fashion is merely a form of ugliness so unbearable that we are compelled to change it every six months."

    ~Oscar Wilde

    "It is stupidity rather than courage to refuse to recognise danger when it is close upon you."

    ~Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Final Problem

    "It's going to be five years later anyway, it might as well be five years later with a college degree."

    -Dear Abby, responding to some writer who was complaining about how long it would take to get a degree going to school part-time.

    I always took this to mean that time moves forward, and you better take full advantage of the time you have now, because you aren't going to get it back.
