“If you don’t feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then probably what you are doing isn’t very vital.” – John Irving

Oh how many times I’ve suffered for this perfect philosophy! So many heedless mistakes that still quake my blood with humiliation even to this very moment. But I never regret. Well, I certianly go over things enough in my head to make it feel like remorse but isn’t even the idea of regret so uninspiring? I think it’s the worst feeling in the world as there’s little hope of curing it. (Unless of course it is something you are fortunate enough to have the chance to re-do).
