"Probably one of the most terrible feelings a human being can experience is regret. Especially the sort of regret that is not so much for what we did that was wrong, but rather for what we could have done (but didn't) that was right. The good thing about this feeling of regret is that, if we experience it often enough and deeply enough, we eventually see the importance of turning around our attitude and changing our life so that there would never be a reason for us to feel that way again in the future. If that happens, then regret has been useful to us. It has taught; we have learned. Regret consumes itself."
