Today is the shadow of tomorrow. Today is the present future of yesterday. Yesterday is the shadow of today.
The days of yesterday are all numbered. The sum of which, the word once. Because once upon a time there was a yesterday.
Yesterday belongs to the dead. Because the dead belong to the past. And the past is yesterday.
The past is once upon a time. And once upon a time has passed. Meanwhile we're searching for tomorrow.
The wisdom of the past is the light of the past. The light of the future is the light which is to be. The wisdom of the future is the light of the future, see.
Yesterday belongs to the dead. Tomorrow belongs to the living. Today belongs to the chosen few.
The past is condemned, a finished product. Anything which has ended is finished. And that which is perfect is finished.
The wisdom of the past is the light of the past. The light which is to be is the wisdom of the future. The light of the future casts the shadows of tomorrow.
