No Regrets | Explore. Dream. Discover.


For various reasons – I’m keeping the post simple this week. The quote in the image above says all I want to say perfectly – so I thought I’d leave it at that.

Note: Whilst the quote in the above says ‘unknown’ as the source, a quick bit of googling attributes it to Mark Twain.

Have you regretted not acting on opportunities? Are you making sure you won’t regret not doing stuff in twenty years time? Let me know in the comments!

    I love the sign. I just bought a new key chain that says “Dream Big.” It’s my personal reminder to keep moving forward with my plans, do what needs to get done, and continue on my path toward discovery.

    I’ve had regrets in the past, and I’m still dealing with a few of them, but life moves on……………….:)

    Love the simplicity of this post!
    It definitely gets the message across!
    I have to say I agree with that that little sign/paper says.

    Well said Chris. I do not think you could add to the quote. I do believe Mr. Twain is the author. It was what came to my noodle before you mentioned it. Off you your other blog!

    Great quote – Mark Twain, indeed! I guess maybe the card producers didn’t want to pay royalties, though I’m not sure there would be any now?
