Be thankful for the past,
And neither fear nor wish
Th' approaches of the last. ~ Abraham Cowley

Too slow for those who wait,
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grieve,
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love,
Time is eternity. ~ Henry Van Dyke

And as they pass, turn back and laugh at me.
