Worrying About The Past Quotes by Umar, Chris Ware, Johnny Cash, John Brodie, George Bernard Shaw, Henry David Thoreau and many others.

A player’s effectiveness is directly related to his ability to be right there, doing that thing, in the moment. He can’t be worrying about the past or the future or the crowd or some other extraneous event. He must be able to respond in the here and now.
