The most important investment that people can make is not to learn a particular skill”I'll learn how to code computers, or I will learn Chinese, or something like that. No, the most important investment is really in building this more flexible mind or personality.
We're in an unprecedented situation in history in the sense that nobody knows what the basics about how the world will look like in 20 or 30 years.

The great Norwegian playwright, Henrik Ibsen, wrote, One of these days, the younger generation will come knocking at my door. The future is knocking at our door right now.

When people choose between talk about the past and talk about the future, a pragmatic person will always opt for the future and forget the past.
If your options seem limited, expand your time horizon to a decade. Your current circumstances, obligations or skills become irrelevant. Once cured from short term thinking, you're free to go in any direction.
I think the most important thing is to invest in emotional intelligence and mental balance, because the hardest challenges will be psychological.

At any given time, when you're walking down the streets, a very small percentage of your brain is focused on the present. The rest is future planning or regretting the past.

There is no love in the future. Love can only exist in the present moment. A man who does not manifest love in the present does not love at all.
When thinking about life, remember this: No amount of guilt can solve the past and no amount of anxiety can change the future.

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.
Don't sacrifice the present by dreaming of the hypothetically perfect future. Don't sacrifice the present by obsessing over a nostalgically distorted past. Today is yesterday's hypothetically perfect future. Today is tomorrow's nostalgically distorted past.

Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.

The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow. Don't give up.
The future is meaningless and unimportant to the person who can bravely face and make the most of the present. The present moment is, as Marcus Aurelius would say, all you need. It's enough. Good or bad. Scary or exciting. A man must live in the present and face it with courage. Starting today.

Part 2. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something.
Part 3. If we remember those times and places - and there are so many - where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
Part 4. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future.
Part 5. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.

When I was a kid, I thought movie stars were women and men who were in these great films that we still look at now. But I don't think there are too many films coming out these days that we're going to look at in the future and say, 'This is one of the great ones.'

The idea of going on tour for the rest of my life with old works is not that exciting. As an artist I definitely think the work in future is going to be better than the work in the past, otherwise why do it?

If the euro zone doesn't come up with a comprehensive vision of its own future, you'll have a whole range of nationalist, xenophobic and extreme movements increasing across the European Union.

Yeah, it's odd when you look back at your own work. Some filmmakers don't look back at their work at all. I look at my work a lot, actually. I feel like I learned something while looking at stuff I've done in terms of what I'm going to do in the future, mistakes I've made and things at work or what have you.

Sometimes I make very selfish choices like I did 'Once Upon A Time' for my inner 8-year-old and my hypothetical future child.

So someday in the near future hopefully rather than having a foot or a leg amputated we'll just give you an injection of the cells and restore the blood flow. We've also created entire tubes of red blood cells from scratch in the laboratory. So there are a lot of exciting things in the pipeline.
In fact when you combine stem cell technology with the technology known as tissue engineering you can actually grow up entire organs, so as you suggest that sometime in the future you get in an auto accident and lose your kidney, we'd simply take a few skin cells and grow you up a new kidney. In fact this has already been done.

Healthy children are born from healthy, respected, well-nourished and educated mothers and it is imperative that they have a voice in the decisions which affect them.

I'm not a prophet I can only use historical reality to come to a view of the future, and my view is that Africa will return to being African and not European. The advent of colonialism was foreign to the country itself, but it will return to what it was before the Europeans arrived.
The discussion in Washington has changed dramatically. I mean, it's no longer a question of should we address entitlements - it's no longer a question of do we need to reduce spending in the future.

The ongoing conflict between us has caused heavy suffering to both peoples. The future can and must be different. Both our peoples are destined to live together side by side, on this small piece of land. This reality we cannot change.
But there's one thing we are not going to compromise at all: when it comes to security of Israeli citizens and the State of Israel, there are not going to be any compromises - not now and not in the future.

My idea in terms of managing a narrative, or in thinking in my creative life, is that you could easily argue that the past, the present and the future all occur simultaneously, and if you can postulate that, then you're not strictly bound to a linear narrative.
In the future, when Microsoft leaves a security-flaw in their code it won't mean that somebody hacks your computer. It will mean that somebody takes control of your servant robot and it stands in your bedroom doorway sharpening a knife and watching you sleep.

In the future, my communications with the public and with the markets will be entirely through regular and formal channels.

Customers don't know what they want. There's plenty of good psychology research that shows that people are not able to accurately predict how they would behave in the future. So asking them, 'Would you buy my product if it had these three features?' or 'How would you react if we changed our product this way?' is a waste of time. They don't know.

Whether they run a record company or a grocery store, every boss will tell you you're in big trouble if you're borrowing more than you can ever afford to pay back. Delaying the pain for future generations is suicidal. We've got to start getting the deficit down right now, not next year.
Baseball's future? Bigger and bigger, better and better! No question about it, it's the greatest game there is!
Mitt Romney has never been resigned to what someone else said was possible. He cut his own path. That's why he believes in his heart that America has a future full of opportunity and hope. And that's why when Mitt Romney looks down the road, he sees a country that's ready for a comeback.
The fact that books today are mostly a string of words makes it easier to forget the text. With the impact of the iPad and the future of the book being up for re-imagination, I wonder whether we'll rediscover the importance of making texts richer visually.
Someday in the distant cyborg future, when our internal and external memories fully merge, we may come to possess infinite knowledge. But that's not the same thing as wisdom.
I have made a film about jazz that tries to look through jazz to see what it tells us about who we are as a people. I think that jazz is a spectacularly accurate model of democracy and a kind of look into our redemptive future possibilities.
My first film as an actor was 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High,' a glorious experience that spoiled me for future films.

I always felt like my future was at stake every time I stepped on stage and that was kind of hair-raising. At some point I just went, don't be frightened, you can't do anything wrong, it's your show.
