Need a title-quote referencing past year + coming year

I have a line: "The Year in Review, The Year Ahead". I'd like to keep that sentiment but specifically have it be a quote. Could be a song or book title. Could be a single title or if you've got two that work well together, that's fine too.

To clarify, you're looking for more of an established turn-of-phrase rather than a full quote? I haven't any that come to mind readily, but a quick brainstorm on my part: "Looking back; Looking forward," "Hindsight and Foresight," "Halfway to 730 Days."
Also, I found these, but worry that perhaps they pose more as meditations than anaphoristic adage. Hopefully they're relevant.

“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.”

We control the future but cannot know it."

I didn't even know that this was a thing, but there is a (bad) song called "Trip Around The Sun"

"The Circle Game" by Joni Mitchell

"The Last Night of the Year" is a popular song title.

"The Last Day of the Year" by Reid Jamieson has great lyrics.

(Sorry for no links, I'm on my phone.)

'The future ain't what it used to be.'

"Days of Future Passed" -- or "Past", if you prefer Marvel Comics to the Moody Blues.
