In the end we only regret chances we didn't take


In the end we only regret chances we didn't take.The relationships we were scared to have and the decisions we waited too long to make. There comes a time in your life when you realise who matters, who doesn't, who never did and who always will

This is actually a name of a  Facebook group and as of 18th November, 2011 there were 1,314,777 people who liked the page and 7,367 who are talking about it.
Apart from that there are no other entries on the page.

I guess it says it all

 

According to Yahoo Answers, Irlanda reports that the quote is incomplete and should say:

"In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take, the relationships we were scared to have and the decisions we waited too long to make. There comes a time in your life when you realise who matters, who doesn't, who never did and who always will. So don't worry about the people from your past, there's a reason they didn't make it to your future"

 Wikipedia and Wikiquote don't register it and shareaquote don't attribute it either

In the end we only regret chances we didn't take

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance Never settle for the path of least resistance Living might mean taking chances But they're worth taking Lovin' might be a mistake But it's worth making Don't let some hell bent heart Leave you bitter When you come close to selling out Reconsider Give the heavens above More than just a passing glance And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance I hope you dance

As the American philosopher Bette Midler once said: "It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance It's the dream afraid of wakingthat never takes the chance It's the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give and the soul afraid of dyingthat never learns to live"

Interesting. We also regret some of the things we naively jumped in to, though. READ MORE AT TAKE HEART
