10 Regret Quotes from Literature

"Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one's mistakes." ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde With memory set smarting like a reopened wound, a man's past is not simply a dead history, an outworn preparation of the present: it is not a repented error shaken loose from the life: it is a still quivering part of himself, bringing shudders and bitter flavors and the tinglings of a merited shame. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot But with the morning cool repentance came. ~ Rob Roy by Sir Walter Scott "There is no refuge from memory and remorse in this world. The spirits of our foolish deeds haunt us, with or without repentance." ~ Mrs. Falchion by Gilbert Parker "Youth is a blunder; Manhood a struggle; Old Age a regret." ~ Coningsby by Benjamin Disraeli Yet if he upbraided her in his hurry, it was to repent bitterly his temper the next instant, and to feel its effects more than she, temper being a weapon that we hold by the blade. ~ The Little Minister by James M. Barrie It was a long and gloomy night that gathered on me, haunted by the ghosts of many hopes, of many dear remembrances, many errors, many unavailing sorrows and regrets. ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens May night had fallen soft and warm, enwrapping with its grape-bloom colour and its scents the billion caprices, intrigues, passions, longings, and regrets of men and women. ~ The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy "Married in haste, we may repent at leisure." ~ The Old Bachelor by William Congreve "We should regret our mistakes and learn from them, but never carry them forward into the future with us." ~ Anne Of Avonlea by Lucy Maud Montgomery
