Regret is ... an unavoidable result of any loss, for in loss we lose the tomorrow that we needed to make right our yesterday or today. - Gerald Lawson Sittser

Regrets only apply when we don’t learn from a situation. No sense looking back, look forward with new knowledge and no regret. - Catherine Pulsifer

Remorse is the poison of life. - Charlotte Bronte

Some of our principal regrets in life are the opportunities we passed up and the chances we did not take. - Unknown

Temporary feelings of regret are a normal part of the mourning process. This helps us retrieve our lost dreams. If we hold on to regret, we risk trapping ourselves in a prison of unrealized dreams from which it is difficult to escape. - Barbara de Angelis
