Seeing the future

          "Can you see the future, Kerbouchard?"
          "Who would wish to? Our lives hold a veil between anticipation and horror. anticipation is the carrot suspended before the jackass to keep him moving forward. Horror is what he would see if he took his eyes off the carrot."

(from The Walking Drum, by Louis L'Amour)
