Yes, I do like to be in control. I do like everything to be laid out, to know what I’m doing. I’m very impatient. I like things done yesterday, which is probably a fault of mine. I like things to be neat and tidy and organised. I say what I want and show what I want and I keep things private.

Yesterday I went home with him and we did the usual things. I haven’t the nerve to put them down, but I’d like to, because now when I’m writing it’s already tomorrow and I’m afraid of getting to the end of yesterday. As long as I go on writing, yesterday is today and we are still together
Die to everything of yesterday so that your mind is always fresh, always young, innocent, full of vigor and passion.
I could remember the details as if it had happened yesterday, even though it was hard to believe some of it had happened at all. Funerals were tricky like that. And life, I guess. The important parts you blocked out altogether, but the random, slanted moments haunted you, replaying over and over in your mind.
56,000 companies have already benefited from the schemes that we have brought in. If we have taken the advice of the Conservative Party, no money would have been used. As Barack Obama said only yesterday, doing nothing is not an option.

Americans have no sense of history. And not much memory. They don’t remember what happened yesterday.
Maman died today. Or yesterday maybe, I don’t know. I got a telegram from the home: ‘Mother deceased. Funeral tomorrow. Faithfully yours.’ That doesn’t mean anything. Maybe it was yesterday.
To realize that you were mistaken, is just the acknowledgement , that you are wiser today than you were yesterday.
Don’t miss out on today by living in yesterday.
THE WORLD OF YESTERDAY is ostensibly an autobiography but in truth it is much more than that. In this remarkably fine new translation, Anthea Bell perfectly captures Stefan Zweig’s glorious evocation of a lost world, Vienna’s golden age, in which he grew up and flourished.
The best time to do something significant is between yesterday and tomorrow.
Above all, I strive to be the best I can – to be better than I was yesterday and better tomorrow.

If we want a world that is truly sustainable, we have to realize that something old can also be perfect. Otherwise, we’ll just throw away our yesterday.
Putting a stamp on things just helps you say, ‘Hey, yesterday I was there, and today I’m here.’ It’s another step forward, and it feels like another turning point and an unleashing of creativity, and now I’m going to start focusing on the show and the production, the fun stuff that comes with it.
How about we get rid of separate bathrooms for boys and girls? Gays and straights share the bathroom with zero issues. We need to put an end to the sexist pooping policies of yesterday. The only way to achieve gender equality is to start crapping in front of each other.
I’m energetic and passionate about the needs – the things we need to fix. I don’t feel old, I don’t feel like yesterday’s news.
Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday. Realize the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you if you hold on to it. Let the past go. A simply abundant world awaits.
We are only possible as what happened to us yesterday. We all change as well move
You can’t do anything about yesterday tomorrow

According to federal reports filed yesterday, the Obama campaign spent more money than they raised in the month of May. They spent more money than they raised? Well, that’s called being a Democrat

Yesterday’s rose endures in its name, we hold empty names.
Every few years, I go back into all the songs and I update them so that it never sounds like an oldies show. If you come to the shows, they’re full of muscle. ‘Copacabana’ sounds like it could have been released yesterday.

Yesterday is history
Tomorrow’s a mystery
Did God really say that I couldn’t tell my friends what so and so did yesterday? Does that really count as gossip? No, it’s just venting, and venting is healthy right? Wrong! We are supposed to think about the things that are praiseworthy, not gossip worthy.
I look at each day as a chance to move one notch above yesterday – whether it’s in service quality, delivery, speed, or any other aspect of the business.
We seem to be going through a period of nostalgia, and everyone seems to think yesterday was better than today.

If you’re hung up on nostalgia, pretend today is yesterday and just go out and have one hell of a time.
If we slide into a pattern of just thinking about today, we’ll end up reacting to yesterday instead of shaping something more constructive in the world.

I saw a report yesterday. There’s so much oil, all over the world, they don’t know where to dump it. And Saudi Arabia says, ‘Oh, there’s too much oil.’ They – they came back yesterday.

Yesterday when we went over the plan again and again, I never thought about Grandad showing up. Because I’m an idiot, basically–an idiot with poor planning skills. Of course he’s here. Where else would he be? Seriously, what else could go wrong?
The slime of all my yesterdays rots in the hollow of my skull.

It’s amazing how a little tomorrow can make up for a whole lot of yesterday.
I have never been able to understand the compelling phrase, ‘keeping up with the Joneses.’ It does not matter very much whether I keep up with Tom Jones or anybody else; what is important is to keep up with myself by making my today a little better than my yesterday.
For you [God] are infinite and never change. In you “today” never comes to an end: and yet our “today” does come to an end in you, because time, as well as everything else, exists in you. If it did not, it would have no means of passing. And since your years never come to an end, for you they are simply “today.”
What you can do is embrace what you have right now and to allow it to fill the vacancies of what you didn’t get yesterday.

The prisoners still keep killing each other thay hung six yesterday thay fight all most every night in the stockade.
Joseph Williams

I never thought I’d say the sentence ‘It was a real honour‘ – because that implies that you’ve done something pretty special. But now I’ve done that several times.

John Vanbiesbrouck

Jeb Bush gave a speech yesterday. He had a pretty rough time. He accidentally said that ISIS has 200,000 men instead of 20,000, and then he mispronounced the name of the terrorist group Boko Haram. So if history has taught us anything, Jeb is well on his way to winning the White House.

It is the result of spiritual illumination to see those facts for what they really are: a revelation of the truth and glory of God in the face of Christ-who is the same yesterday today and forever.
I haven’t tweeted once in my life, but I’m sick of hearing about it already. What once may have been the cool way of letting a hundred people know that you’re about to go mow your lawn now has the feel of a used-to-be-fresh means of communicating. So yesterday, like two-way pagers. And AOL.

I recognize that Hollywood is not about seniority. Often it’s not even a meritocracy. It’s about what you did yesterday. You have a couple of misses, and suddenly it’s impossible to find a hit. So the swings are gigantic. But I’ve always understood it as such, and navigated it as such.

In my house there’s this light switch that doesn’t do anything. Every so often, I would flick it on and off just to check. Yesterday, I got a call from a woman in Germany. She said ‘cut it out’

Yesterday I was thinking about the whole idea of genius and creative people, and the notion that if you create some magical art, somehow that exempts you from having to pay attention to the small things.
If I have not read a book before, it is, for all intents and purposes, new to me whether it was printed yesterday or three hundred years ago.
What you were yesterday is fixed for always, making its mark on what you are today, what you will be tomorrow.
There’s even one for your titties. I haven’t done the boobs mask one yet-you just stick it on your tits, apparently. I have to try it. But I did the foot one and the hand one yesterday, and it makes my skin crazy. It’s like I just had sex for four days.
General: I attempted to take Williamsport yesterday, but found too large a force of infantry and artillery. After a long fight, I withdrew to this place.
Donald Trump insisted yesterday that he is not racist, because one time an African-American won Apprentice. Because nothing says ‘not racist’ like making a black man run your errands.
Yesterday President Obama traveled to Jamaica, where he will meet with students and Caribbean leaders. Jamaica’s such a beautiful place, Obama says he can’t wait to just take it all in, hold it for several seconds, and then exhale.
Business models that are relevant today are not relevant tomorrow and were not in existence yesterday.
Yesterday’s errors let yesterday cover.
What better is there to sigh for than happiness, yesterday’s or tomorrow’s.
The deliberate and deadly attacks which were carried out yesterday against our country were more than acts of terror. They were acts of war.
Even one’s yesterdays could not continue to stir and move in a man’s mind unless there were a future for those yesterdays to make.
I think that people are still trying to understand each other and overcome prejudices. And people are still, most important, loving each other. And that is today as it was yesterday and will be for another 200 years.
As the blackness of the night recedes so does the nadir of yesterday. The child I am forgets so quickly.
Captain Clarke who had gone out yesterday with eighteen men to bring in the meat we had killed the day before, and to continue the hunt, came in at twelve o’clock.
Of course, it’s always bad to lose, of course it’s always a hardship when you lose to yesterday’s miners or yesterday’s tractor drivers. But life is life. It’ll surely go on.
Logic is a feeble reed, friend. “Logic” proved that airplanes can’t fly and that H-bombs won’t work and that stones don’t fall out of the sky. Logic is a way of saying that anything which didn’t happen yesterday won’t happen tomorrow.
I change too quickly: my today refutes my yesterday. When I ascend I often jump over steps, and no step forgives me that.
I do not promise to believe tomorrow exactly what I believe today, and I do not believe today exactly what I believed yesterday. I expect to make, as I have made, some honest progress within every succeeding twenty-four hours.
Forget [Le Corbusier ]. Forget Modernism. Forget yesterdays’ tomorrow.
Instead of wanting to be better than other people, let’s channel that energy to be better than we were yesterday and then again to be the best we can be tomorrow.
With Hollywood you’re yesterday’s news if you get a flop at the box office. So you might as well be braced to have something else to do that’s interesting. Have something lined up to keep your stories fulfilled, and your ideas, because if you’re just cranking out movies three times a year.
You know, I looked at my face in the mirror this morning, and I like being old. My face has more content and when I train in the gym now, I am not training to be strong or handsome – just better than I was yesterday. These days the race is just against myself.
Perhaps the same bird echoed through both of us yesterday, seperate, in the evening.
Tomorrow! – Why, tomorrow I may be Myself with yesterday’s sev’n thousand years.
As long as there are memories, yesterday remains. As long as there is hope, tomorrow awaits. As long as there is friendship, today is beautiful.
I don’t believe in aliens. I don’t think aliens or ghosts like black people. We never get abducted; our houses never get haunted. It always happens in rural areas, where no ethnic people live. The day I see somebody from South Central Los Angeles say, ‘Man, I got abducted yesterday,’ then I’ll believe it.
We have a choice every day — to act on yesterday’s good intentions or get an early start on tomorrow’s regrets.
Yesterday one has wished, to-day one attains the madly longed-for object, and to-morrow one will blush to think that one ever desired it.
TOPER. Yesterday I carried to wait on a Relation of ours that has a Parrot, and whilst I was discoursing about some private Business, she converted the Bird, and now it talks of nothing but the Light of the Spirit, and the Inward man.
We must never forget that today’s legendary achievements-awesome as they may seem-were yesterday’s risky adventures. Courage is not the capacity never to be afraid; as Karl Barth reminds us, “Courage is fear that has said its prayers.”
John Claypool
Listen up. Rant would tell people: ‘You’re a different human being to everybody you meet.’ Sometimes Rant said, ‘You only ever is in the eyes of other folks.’ If you were going to carve a quote on his grave, his favorite saying was: ‘The future you have tomorrow won’t be the same future you had yesterday.
It’s so curious: one can resist tears and ‘behave‘ very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer… and everything collapses.
And you know, I said yesterday, you know, you know, if they’re not going to – if the feds aren’t going to do their job, well, then, I’m up to suing the feds to make them do their job! I mean, they sued Arizona, you know, we can sue them back! I mean, they’re not – they’re not enforcing the laws!
The World is three days: As for yesterday, it has vanished, along with all that was in it. As for tomorrow, you may never see it. As for today, it is yours, so work in it.
Perhaps the way to meet tomorrow’s challenges is not to use yesterday’s solutions, but to dare to think the previously unthinkable, to speak the previously unspeakable, and to try that which was previously out of the question.
Be better today than you were yesterday, and be better tomorrow than you are today.
Comforters for our todays / Guardians of memories / Keeping our youth and yesterdays alive / Comrades with one history.
Yesterday, President-elect Barack Obama announced his new economic team. You know what he should do? Hire those people who were in charge of his fundraising campaign. We can pay this thing off in like a week.
The principal reason, invariably, most “successfulgiant companies rather quickly become also-rans, or just amorphous blobs on the competitive landscape, is their failure to re-tool in anything like a fundamental way. In fact, the worse things get, typically, the more they dig in their heels and defend yesterday’s turf.
Yesterday all five living presidents gathered for the opening of the George W. Bush presidential library in Dallas. Well, six living presidents if you count Hillary in 2016.
I was called a terrorist yesterday, but when I came out of jail, many people embraced me, including my enemies, and that is what I normally tell other people who say those who are struggling for liberation in their country are terrorists.
Think not of what you did yesterday, but what you can do for yourself today.
Jerry Pate
Yesterday’s fairy tale is today’s fact. The magician is only one step ahead of his audience.
For you see, each day I love you more. Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.
Rosemonde Gerard
I don’t think my book is any more shocking than if I went out right now and brought back your local newspaper and found a story that happened around here yesterday or the day before that’s just as shocking as anything in my book.
Love isn’t about what we did yesterday; it’s about what we do today and tomorrow and the day after
A man who says, ‘I was wrong,’ really in effect says, ‘I am a little wiser today than I was yesterday.
Yesterday, the Pentagon warned U.S. reporters that they should get out of Baghdad as soon as possible because the U.S. could attack at any time. Then the Pentagon added, ‘Whatever you do, don’t tell Geraldo.’
Shall I throw away the materials and time paying homage to the perfectionist – knowing that nothing is ever perfect and also knowing that redoing yesterday is not always proceeding to tomorrow’s discovery? What an eternal debate!
Oliver $
I don’t measure myself against my coaches, I don’t measure myself against my teammates. If I’m doing jiu-jitsu for sport, I don’t measure myself against the guy I’m rolling with or whatever belt he is or how many stripes he has on his belt. I measure myself every day against the guy I was yesterday.
No yesterdays on the road.
The Persian‘s mind, like his illuminated manuscripts, does not deal in perspective: two thousand years, if he happens to know anything about them, are as exciting as the day before yesterday.
All old music was modern once, and much more of the music of yesterday already sounds more old-fashioned than works which were written three centuries ago.
It seems only yesterday I used to believe there was nothing under my skin but light. If you cut me I could shine.
I loved you yesterday. I love you still. I always have and I always will.
Tim Walters
If you think about human nature, our favourite pair of shoes are the ones we bought yesterday, our favourite thing is the newest thing that we have…and the thing we’ve seen the most and for the longest period of time is our reflection in the mirror, so obviously that’s going to be our least favourite thing.
The first rule of survival is clear: Nothing is more dangerous than yesterday’s success.
For Humanity sweeps onward: where today the martyr stands, On the morrow crouches Judas with the silver in his hands; Far in front the cross stands ready and the crackling fagots burn, While the hooting mob of yesterday in silent awe return To glean up the scattered ashes into History’s golden urn.
[T]omorrow is a new day. You shall begin it well & serenely, & with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day … is too dear with its hopes & invitations to waste a moment on the rotten yesterdays.
Yesterday’s History. Tomorrow’s a Mystery. So live for today.
If we spend our time with regrets over yesterday, and worries over what might happen tomorrow, we have no today in which to live.
Great families of yesterday we show, And lords, whose parents were the Lord knows who.
All the events you have experienced in your lifetime up to this moment have been created by your thoughts and beliefs you have held in the past. They were created by the thoughts and words you used yesterday, last week, last month, last year, 10, 20, 30, 40, or more years ago, depending on how old you are
I served on the budget committee in the Senate, and I remember as vividly as if it were yesterday when we had a hearing in which Alan Greenspan came and justified increasing spending and cutting taxes, saying that we didn’t really need to pay down the debtoutrageous in my view.
If you have reason to think that yesterday’s forecast went wrong, there is no glory in sticking to it.
Superstition? Who can define the boundary line between the superstition of yesterday and the scientific fact of tomorrow?
A broom is drearily sweeping up the broken pieces of yesterday’s life.

I feel as if I had opened a book and found roses of yesterday sweet and fragrant, between its leaves.
Life goes on and the truth changes; this just happens to be the way life is. What was once true is often no longer true just a little while later. Yesterday’s truth is today’s bullshit. Even yesterday’s liberating insight is today’s jail of stale explanation.
Yesterday, Saddam Hussein got 100 percent of the vote. Well, that’s according to Saddam’s campaign manager, Jeb Hussein.
Are you smelling me?” After yesterday I suspected that my body was giving him all kinds of information I didn’t want him to have. “Don’t tempt me,” he murmured.
I can’t live off of yesterday – that’s in the past.
English may be the fastest moving language in the world, but there are plenty of concepts, sensations and everyday occurrences which lack a pithy word to describe them. Take the clunkiness of ‘the day before yesterday’ and ‘the day after tomorrow’: German provides single words for both.
Sometimes it’s good to do something that you’ve never done before, so yesterday, I went out to buy Elton John’s new album.
My two grandmothers both died of cancer, so I understand how painful and difficult this disease is on the entire family. My first grandmother passed away from bone cancer when I was about 10. It was really horrible. I remember the whole process like it was yesterday.

Yesterday for contemplation, today for action.
It seems like yesterday I was up there watching my first NHL game, and I was skating on the ice this time. It brings back memories, but at the same time it’s something I’ll remember forever.
The net effect of Clarence Darrow's great speech yester

The net effect of Clarence Darrow’s great speech yesterday seemed to be precisely the same as if he had bawled it up a rainspout in the interior of Afghanistan.
