Burning bridges is a phrase that advises to have an optimistic approach to life by forgetting the past worries, guilt, errors and mistakes committed by the self and others. It is common that we cross the bridge only when it comes and try not to think about it, unless we come across a bridge. But once we cross it, we must make sure that we don’t lament of the past and focus only on the future or the present.
But burning the bridge also has another perspective. One anonymous quote says, “Careful not to burn bridges, you might just need to cross back”. We should also have a clear demarcation in deciding which bridge to burn and which one to build. If this is clear, then there won’t be any guilt, or worries in life. Here are quotes on burning bridges given by great thinkers and philosophers. Read them and share them.
