Never regret yesterday. Life is in you today, and you make your tomorrow.
"To regret the exchange of earthly pleasures for the joys of heaven, is as if the grovelling caterpillar should lament that it must one day quit the nibbled leaf to soar aloft and flutter through the air, roving at will from flower to flower, sipping sweet honey from their cups, or basking in their sunny petals."anne brontë
Anger... it's a paralyzing emotion... you can't get anything done. People sort of think it's an interesting, passionate, and igniting feeling — I don't think it's any of that — it's helpless... it's absence of control — and I need all of my skills, all of the control, all of my powers — and I need clarity, in order to write — and anger doesn't provide any of that — I have no use for it whatsoever. I can feel melancholy, and I can feel full of regret, but anger is something that is useful to the people who watch it... it's not useful to me.toni morrison
There is a maxim, 'Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.' It is a maxim for sluggards. A better reading of it is, 'Never do today what you can as well do tomorrow,' because something may occur to make you regret your premature action.aaron burr
Youth is a blunder; Manhood a struggle; Old Age a regret.
I regret the narrow contracted education of the females of my own country.Abigail Adams
If I go out of public life with one feeling, with one conviction, it is this : a deep regret for many bitter words I have used in my life, deep sincere repentance for my violence of language. But I hope they will be forgiven me by God and man, because not once in all my life have I attacked anybody unjustly from my point of view, and without believing it was my duty to do so.Henri Bourassa
I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.anthony robbins
My biggest regret? Not being knighted by the Queen. I should have been a knight, and I would have been knighted, if I hadn't written one horrible horrible Python sketch which I deeply deeply regret [ cue Python sketch: "Upper Class Twit of the Year" ]john cleese
The only thing I regret about my past is the length of it. If I had to live my life again, I'd make the same mistakes, only sooner.tallulah bankhead
To sum it all up, I must say that I regret nothing.adolf eichmann
I have no regrets. If you regret things, you're sort of stepping backwards. I'm a believer in going forwards.kate winslet
A tedium that includes only the anticipation of more tedium; the regret, now, of tomorrow regretting having regretted today.
I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.Nathan Hale
War makes men barbarous because, to take part in it, one must harden oneself against all regret, all appreciation of delicacy and sensitive values. One must live as if those values did not exist , and when the war is over one has lost the resilience to return to those values.cesare pavese
Among those today who believe that modern poetry must do without rhyme or metre, there is an assumption that the alternative to free verse is a crash course in villanelles, sestinas and other such fixed forms. But most...are rare in English poetry. Few poets have written a villanelle worth reading, or indeed regret not having done so.james fenton
Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably ... And never regret anything that made you smile.ruslana korshunova
Many an attack of depression is nothing but the expression of regret at having to be virtuous.wilhelm stekel
I have no regret that someone openly identified with terrorist organisations and activities meets his death the same way.sammy wilson
No doubt you would deeply regret any error you might make in the hurry of the moment; but you wouldn't regret it half as much as I should! However, I suppose we've got to trust somebody, as we go through life, and your plan seems, on the whole, as good a one as any.Kenneth Grahame
I feel a degree of regret that Marshall did not push on and say 'Abolish the GLC', because I think it would be a major saving and would have released massive resources for more productive use.Ken Livingstone
Admit it, it is your youth that you regret, more even than your crime; it is my youth you hate, even more than my innocence.jean-paul sartre
Keep a little space in your heart for the improbable. You won't regret it.Elizabeth warren
I regret exceedingly that, not only ordinary laymen, but, as it seems to me, professional men, do not understand the great difficulty there is in drawing wills, and do not bestow a little more care and pains in endeavouring to draw them in such a way as that the numerous questions which often arise on them should be avoided. I regret to say that these questions often throw a great deal of expense on parties interested under the wills, and are the cause of great heartburnings and most bitter animosities.
In heaven, we shall never regret any sacrifice however painful, or labor however protracted, made or performed here for the cause of Christ.
Calmly he looked on either Life, and here Saw nothing to regret, or there to fear: From Nature's temp'rate feast rose satisfy'd, Thank'd Heaven that he had lived, and that he died.
