Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
The cost of being wrong is less than the cost of doing nothing,
Sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whiskey and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind but falling in love and not getting arrested.
Hunter S. Thompson
I’ll use todays post to repeat how greatly I appreciate Hunter S. Thompson, his books, his lifestyle and his general approach to being a human.
If you have not read anything by him, start today! A great author and a very unique character.
We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons
Nobody who ever gave their best effort regretted it.
It is your pick:
We must all suffer one of two things:
The pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.
I wish for you all that you find the strength to chose discipline over regret.
Do the right thing. You know what the right thing is. Do the right thing, and you’ll never have any regrets.
Redoran Guard, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
Inside yourself you know what the right thing to do is.
You don’t even have to think about it, you know it.
It can be chosing hard work over labour, it can be chosing having a hard talk over running away or whatever it is for you personally.
But you know what is right, so go and do it!
The weight of discipline is by far less than the weight of regret!
