Never try to look back, and never gaze into the Past. Sometimes Past can be like Medusa, the hideous Gorgon with scary human face and having venomous snakes in the place of her hair. Beware of gazing directly into Medusa's eyes, for it can turn the onlooker into a stone. The Past does exactly the same - it freezes you stone cold, slowing and stopping all your actions, ambitions and aspirations..... the reason why Past is likened to Medusa here.
