    my memory is not as good as it used to be...I've talked with my relatives, etc. and put "some" thought into it. And I I've come to the conclusion that "kaethe" hits it on the head. The quote originated in the bible. What I need to know now is where in the Bible is it written.

    i don't know if you've found the answer as to where its from, but if you haven't:

    " The quote belongs to H. Jackson Brown’s mother. See page 13 in Brown’s 1991 book: P.S. I Love You: When Mom Wrote, She Always Saved the Best for Last. "

    Turkey Soviet's new-in charge of teasing SOLZHENITSOF above-agent Demented***_ideals-in Mini Statistics Join Date11-22-2016 Last Activity Yesterday 10:51 PM...He/She is there and is to be entering the "Who Said That Box" to cut in on words against Islamic Terror!

    Let's read now about The Turkey Soviet-the sworn enemy of The Liberal World:
    AS A FIRST STEP IN ANSWERING THE QUESTION LET'S READ TWO RANDOMLY CHOSEN SAMPLES FROM THE PRO-DEMOCRACY POEMS OF MINE:

    RUBAI FOR VULTURE

    North Korea or/and Turkey Vulture-League of The Second Soviet
    That
    Don’t
    Believe in the Unseen, GOD!

    RUBAI TO CONDEMN RACIST ARMIES

    Hey dirty green TURCO Islamic terrorists and red KEMALIST/Maoist fascists
    Like Saddam or Milosevic
    Establish worship, and recognize what GOD sent you;
    Namely love the democracy led by-presence of The EU!

    AS LONG AS THE VITAL IMPORTANCE NEW CONCEPT İN "GLOBAL SECURITY" IS PERCEIVED SUCCESSFULLY THROUGH THE MAGIC FORCE OF THE STRONG PENS WE UNDERSTAND THAT "GLOBAL SOVIET" COULD BE HARMFULL FOR EVERYBODY WALKING TOWARDS THE WELLFARE AND LIBERTY IN THOUGHTS AND BELIEF.

    SO I'LL BE WRITING ABOUT NEW IRON CURTAINS OF RED AND BLACK FASCISM TO BUILD OPPRESSIONS UPON THE INNOCENT KURDISH PEOPLES WHO ARE RECENTLY SUFFERING FROM THE "Guns of Islamic State" IN SYRIA AND IN TURKEY!
    SO LONG....

    Lightbulb I (think I) have the answer!

    This quote was written by Atsushi Nakajima in one of his stories. I can't remember which one, but I believe it is in the collection "The Moon over the Mountain" if you want to find it!

    It seems to me sometimes that these words exist for those who are looking for some kind of self-justification, I mean, you don't regret things you've done as long as you believe that everything that happens, happens for good. But then I start thinking of all the stuff I haven't done, and realize that I'd better do that and regret than think of the lost opportunities.

    It is sensible to regret things. It helps us to learn.
