Comment: Nothing is ever the same as it was

Nothing is ever the same as it was

The problem is people who live with their backs to the future, always looking to the past to determine how they think things should be in the present.

The DP is not the same as it was because the times are not the same as they were.

Why the fascination with how things were rather than how things are? People who cannot let go of the past will never make their way into the future.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
