The future to escape the present

"I'm not going to be one of those people who sites around talking about what they're gonna do. I'm just going to do it. Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. "You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth and thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it.

You just use the future to escape the present."

John Green, Looking for Alaska
