There is an ancient Sufi parable about coffee: "He who tastes, knows; he who tastes not, knows not."
Make the most of your regrets; 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.
Thoreau had a great point there. I guess the key is to not pity ourselves over our regrets.I've always felt like if we could see our lives with a bird's-eye-view, we'd not consider things to be "mistakes". Wisdom only grows out of experience, after all.
Happiness is over-rated! ;)
