Explore. Dream. Discover. (EC)

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“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

I love this quote. I find often that when I do have regrets it is more often than not regretting not doing somethingthan regretting doing another. Really this is one of the best pieces of advice one could ever receive. Sometimes, the best thing you could ever do is to just jump right in and do the first thing that comes to mind. Thinking can make you worry too much, and worring causes you to not do. Although it is never very good to act wihtout thinking, sometimes there is a limit to the amount of thinking that you should do. Just do it! Explore, dream, and discover yourself and the world around you.

“you shall above all things be glad and young
   For if you’re young, whatever life you wear
   it will become you; and if you are glad
   whatever’s living will yourself become.”

This is an expert from the beginning of the poem by e.e. cummings, titled “you shall above all things be glad and young.” I think this is a great poem. Although e.e. cummings can be hard to understand at times, the beginning of this poem contain words that all people, young and old, glad and heavyhearted, can relate to. He is saying that more than anything else you shall (which indicates the necessity) be happy–for if you are happy, life will go ‘your way’. If you are, above anything else, young–at heart–you will ‘find yourself’. Each person may interpret this poem in different ways, but however you interpret it, it is great advice.
