The tender grace of a day that is dead will never come back to me.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson

The eternal landscape of the past.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam
         (pt. XLVI)

The present is only intelligible in the light of the past.
      - Archbishop Richard Chenevix Trench

Oh seize the instant time; you never will
  With water once passed by impel the mill.
      - Archbishop Richard Chenevix Trench, Poems,
        (ed. 1865), p. 303, "Proverbs, Turkish and Persian"

The past, at least, is secure.
      - Daniel Webster

Men like women with a past because they hope history will repeat itself.
      - Mae West

The past is dead, and has no resurrection.
      - Henry Kirke White

Many a woman has a past; but I am told she has at least a dozen, and that they all fit.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde),
        Lady Windermere's Fan
         (act I, A Woman with a Past)

The past is utterly indifferent to its worshipers.
      - William Winter

Each has his past shut in him like the leaves of a book known to him by heart and his friends can only read the title.
      - Virginia Woolf (nee Stephen) (Adeline Virginia Woolf)

Though nothing can bring back the hour
  Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Ode--Intimations of Immortality (st. 10)

For old, unhappy, far-off things,
  And battles long ago.
      - William Wordsworth, The Solitary Reaper

Whose yesterdays look backward with a smile.
      - Edward Young

That awful independent on to-morrow!
  Whose work is done; who triumphs in the past;
    Whose yesterdays look backward with a smile
      Nor, like the Parthian, wound him as they fly.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night II, l. 322)
