Quotation from Laurens van der Post

"Life decreed that I survive it, unlike a great many people who deserved to survive more than I did. In that sense, it was significant. I think everything in life is significant. But it's dangerous to look back--though it's good to remember. Look what happened to Lot's wife. Remembering is an act of making the past present. Looking back is an act of wishing the present into the past."
