"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain was a smart guy. I used to think this quote's only meaning was to drop everything and go travel the world. Maybe that was what he intended for those who heard the words, maybe he simply meant, live the life you have to the fullest. Explore, dream, and discover the life around you. Maybe he meant both.
Either way, I can't really drop everything at the moment, so I've been discovering things at home.
1. Les Miserables is a beautiful book. Victor Hugo is a bit long winded, but it's worth it.
2. Expectations can be good, but sometimes they get to high. Then it stings when they fall down again.
4. Books take up a lot of space, the more books you get, the more space you need. (maybe that one was obvious for some peoples)
6. I'm a bit fonder of Fall then I thought I was. (despite the fact that it means no more summer)
8. Sometimes it's worth fighting for. Sometimes you've just gotta shrug and say "okay."
10. Change happens. Welcome it with a smile. It makes life easier in the long run.
