The Future Is Not What It Used To Be

The Future Is Not What It Used To Be

Paul ValéryOriginally by Paul Valéry, who wrote, “The trouble with our times is that the future is not what it used to be.” Of course, it never was. The future is always idealized, while the present is messy. To an investor, the future is characterized by profits galore from his intelligent trades. However, when the future arrives, it’s very likely to hold the same mix of experiences as today: successes and failures, triumphs and regrets.
