From the Paper:

"There is a saying that says "The past is the past, the future the future and the present is just that, a gift to be used today." Yet many people are not only unhappy with the past and where they came from, but they also want to rush so quickly into the brave new world of their future that they neglect the gift of the present that is before them. On the other hand they may glamorize a past that never truly existed."
