What’s past is prologue, but the future is still to be written

Copy of What is to give light must endure burning

Shakespeare, he knew a thing or two. People sometimes misunderstand what Antonio meant by ‘what’s past is prologue’, taking it in isolation to mean that the past predicts the future. The full quote, however, says quite the opposite.

“Whereof what’s past is prologue; what to come, in yours and my discharge.” The past is written, but the future is yours to wield, subject to the choices you decide to make.

Make good ones. Each day is a new day with no mistakes in it yet.
