looking back

I often think: should I look back? Should I pause for a moment, look back at the people I left, places I passed through in my life, hearts that I have broken, and people who've broken mine. I remember this quote from Slaughterhouse Five:

"And Lot's wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she was turned into a pillar of salt. So it goes." - Kurt Vonnegut
