„Your roots are not there. They are in the present; and you should reach up into the other life.“

—  Henry Ward Beecher, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), Context: A man is a fool who sits looking backward from himself in the past. Ah! what shallow, vain conceit there is in man! Forget the things that are behind. That is not where you live. Your roots are not there. They are in the present; and you should reach up into the other life. p. 566
