"Once a thing is done..."

Similar to an argument I would make to persuade 9th graders of the value of studying history:
...[T]he future is imaginary, the present is happening and that only leaves the past to be true; and it leaves the past as, in a sense, all of a piece. Once a thing is done, it belongs to the past. .... C.H. Sisson (1914-2003)
