“When people think about travelling to the past, they worry about accidentally changing the present…”

“When people travel to the past, they worry about radically changing the present by doing something small. Few people think that they can radically change the future by doing something small in the present” is a saying that has been printed on many images. There are several slightly different versions.
   
“When people think about travelling to the past, they worry about accidentally changing the present, but no one in the present really thinks they can radically change the future” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on November 5, 2016. “When people talk about traveling to the past, they worry about radically changing the present by doing something small, but barely anyone in the present really thinks that they can radically change the future by doing something small” was posted by Just Shower Thoughts on Tumblr on November 25, 2017.
   
“When people travel to the past, they worry about radically changing the present by doing something small. Few people think that they can radically change the future by doing something small in the present” (shown on an image) was posted on Facebook by Eldon Romney on November 26, 2022.

Everyone knows time travelers always worry about changing some small detail of the past because it could radically change the present, but hardly anybody thinks about how they could radically change the future by doing something small in the present.

“When we talk about traveling to the past, we almost always discuss the idea of radically changing the present by doing something small. If that’s the case, why do we rarely believe we can also radically change the future by doing something small in the present?”

When people travel to the past, they worry about radically changing the future by doing something small, yet noone will radically change the future by doing something small in the present.
