The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead.

Free of painful regrets

Your biggest regrets are for opportunities missed. Today is an opportunity, so make sure you don’t miss it.

The way to avoid regret is to take action. Go beyond merely hoping, planning, or wishing, and do it.

Yes, your actions may sometimes bring disappointing results. Even so, you will be much better off knowing you made the attempt.

Instead of always wondering whether or not you could have, find out for sure that you can. Act, learn, adjust and act again, and eventually you will get the results you desire.

Regret for opportunities missed is a pain that is almost impossible to escape. So make the choice today not to create that pain in the first place.

Make full use of the opportunity that is right in front of you right now. And make yourself a life free of painful regrets.

— Ralph Marston
