There is this man who walks around our campus handing out personal quotes about life. Today, mine read:
If you do something that turns out wrong, you can almost always put it right, get over it, learn from it, or at least deny it, but once you’ve missed out on something it’s gone. There will that boy/girl you never got to say the right words to, the band you never got to see live, the winning streak you never got to cheer on, the brilliant retiring professor whose class you never got to take, that relative you never got close to. It’s a long list. Try to keep it as short as possible. It’s not failures we regret, but the things we pass up because we were too scared and were playing it safe. Love is always worth the risk. Eternity’s a long time to live with regret.
