D G Rossetti
I have spent my days stringing and unstringing my instrument, while the song I came to sing remains unsung.
One's real life is often the life one does not lead.
Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time: it is regret for the things that we did not do that is inconsolable.
Sidney J Harris
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us.
Alexander Graham Bell
My one regret in life is that I am not someone else.
I see it all perfectly; there are two possible situations – do it or do not do it. You will regret both.
Make the most of regret. Never smother your sorrow, but tend and cherish it till it comes to have a separate and integral interest. To regret deeply is to live afresh.
Henry David Thoreau
Most of us crucify ourselves between two thieves – regret for the past and fear of the future.
Hindsight is always twenty twenty.
Let's not burden our remembrance with a heaviness that's gone.
Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it.
There is no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval.
Fear not that life shall come to an end, but rather fear that it shall never have a beginning.
Cardinal John Henry Newman
Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Footfalls echo in the memory down the passage we did not take towards the door that never opened into the rose garden.
T. S. Eliot
Though love be a day, and life be nothing, it shall not stop kissing.
