Quotes for ReflectionApril 19 2021
I find myself reflecting on this past year often. How surreal it still seems that we’ve been living through a once in a lifetime historical shift in our society. I also think about how things will change as a result of the past year and everything happening in present day. Around this time last year, I was asking myself similar questions and I shared this blog, What Will Be the New “Normal?” I said, “It's under circumstances like these where I reflect on quotes and lessons from our nation’s past to help us look forward.”
When I sat down to write this blog, I laughed at my reflecting on this past year to find myself reflecting over quotes and lessons from history and through all this reflection I find so much importance and gratitude for moments of reflection. As redundant as that previous sentence was, I truly was humbled by the ability to look back at moments from the past and remind myself of the journey. The past has a way of making you appreciative for everything in the present.
With all this in mind, here are some of my favorite quotes about reflecting on the importance of the past.
“Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.” Margaret J. Wheatley
