„A fine thing: suddenly to forget about one’s history, one’s past, to stop feeling that one’s present happiness is endangered by what one used to be.“

—  Peter Handke, Das Gewicht der Welt [The Weight of the World], p. 7

„The tenth penetration is, "All times penetrate one time. One time penetrates all times — past, present, and future. In one second, you can find the past, present, and future."“

—  Thich Nhat Hanh Religious leader and peace activist 1926
The Sun My Heart (1996), Context: The tenth penetration is, "All times penetrate one time. One time penetrates all times — past, present, and future. In one second, you can find the past, present, and future." In the past, you can see the present and the future. In the present, you can find the past and future. In the future, you can find the past and present. They "inter-contain" each other. Space contains time, time contains space. In the teaching of interpenetration, one determines the other, the other determines this one. When we realize our nature of interbeing, we will stop blaming and killing, because we know that we inter-are. Thích Nhất Hạnh here quotes and interprets the "Ten Penetrations" of the Avatamsaka Sutra

„There is a secret agreement between past generations and the present one.“

—  Walter Benjamin, Theses on the Philosophy of History
Theses on the Philosophy of History (1940), Context: There is a secret agreement between past generations and the present one. Our coming was expected on earth. Like every generation that preceded us, we have been endowed with a weak Messianic power, a power to which the past has a claim. That claim cannot be settled cheaply. II
