Pittacus Lore

This quote was added by type_master
We don't have to be defined by the things we did or didn't do in our past. Some people allow themselves to be controlled by regret. Maybe it's a regret, maybe it's not. It's merely something that happened. Get over it.

If only life was this easy

A person could also use this kind of thinking to shrug off something they did that was very wrong -- something they should regret. Often enough guilt is the only real consequence that would bring a person forward to answer for a crime they could manage to conceal (be it an ethical, moral, or legal crime).

"So I was drunk and killed a kid in a hit and run. No one saw it happen. I can pull a headlight, bumper and quarter panel off a junker. Get the paint matched and we're good as new. If anyone asks, I hit a deer. Meh, it happens."

Regret plays a crucial role in the mind of any decent person.

Oh, how I dislike such "inspirational" quotes. Imagine a man suffering a big deal from regret. He hurts and seeks help. He reads this quote. And he thinks "Yeah, why I am regretting? I won't do that anymore. I will be happy from now on. It's so simple, why didn't I do it earlier?" ????????? I think what really will happen is that more inner guilt will pour into his mind, because now he knows that he mustn't regret, and can't do nothing about it. So he feels worse.
