"History Moves Time" in A Perfect Analogy

In an upcoming book, now in rewrite, one of the characters speaks of the importance of history.  He and his compatriots are trapped in the sphere of reality created by their past bad habits.  Trying to escape those chains and move into more rewarding ventures one of them finally admits to himself that despite their forays into "modern" or stabs at the future that only "history moves time".

I love that line, and while I'm certain there could be arguments made otherwise, in the context of the story it is what anchors these characters to their themselves.

Look for "A Perfect Analogy" in the fall.
