Look Back in Brevity

Reminiscing about the past year, I found many quotes meaning “never look back” (from such notable thinkers as Justin Bieber and the like). I don’t agree with this sentiment.

Then there were the quotes that “one needs to look back to go forward” from a quite few more renowned men and women. I rather agree – how can one learn anything without looking at it? – yet I’m also worried about stagnation and lack of drive.

And then I found this uncredited maxim:

It’s okay to look back at the past, just don’t stare.

Who is going to tell him?
