    Boy does it ever. It certainly makes you think. 🙂

    • Geek Girl says:

      I like the quotes that make you think. 🙂

  2. Denise Baer says:

    WOW! I love that quote. I'm going to list this with my favorite quotes. It doesn't need explanation.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Thank you!

  3. One of my favorite lines from the movie "Something Wicked this way Comes" is "The dreams of youth are the regrets of maturity."

    We need to keep reaching for our dreams.

    • Geek Girl says:

      I'm reaching… 🙂

  4. @patweber says:

    I'm hoping I don't get there – either regretful, or that old.

  5. JeriWB says:

    The quote also makes me think about how dreams can also alter over time. It's always good to reassess so as not to be spending time regretting a dream that has shifted its form somewhat.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Dreams do change. The point is to keep dreaming. 🙂

  6. Hhhmmmmmm….not sure about that… Depends on how you define regrets. Also what you dream of….For many old people dreaming of meating their loved ones again beats dreams taking place in real life…So I guess it depends:-)

    • Geek Girl says:

      I had not thought of it that way. You do make a good point.

  7. I LOVE that quote, Cheryl!

    I've always lived everyday as though it might be my last, as we never know what's around the corner. So I can't say I have any regrets, but I sure have lots of dreams!

    • Geek Girl says:

      I wonder how many people can say the same. Live every day as if it's your last.

  8. becc03 says:

    Love it!
    I'm not old yet 🙂

    • Geek Girl says:

      I'm not old yet either! 🙂

  9. @artyyah says:

    Oh my goodness what a depressing quote Cheryl! Better keep dreaming.

  10. Geek Girl says:

    wow… I did not see it as depressing at all. Hmmm….

  11. Geek Girl says:

    I'm with you. 🙂

  12. Jeannette Paladino says:

    That is such a sad quote. I hope I never stop having dreams. I won't let regrets take over my life. It's pointless and pushes out happiness.

    • Geek Girl says:

      When I was looking at this quote I was thinking just the opposite. As long as we have dreams the regrets will have no space to reside in.

  13. namirusso says:

    Whew! I'm still good then…thanks for that. Hit the spot.

  14. Leora says:

    I should pay attention to that quote!

    • Geek Girl says:

      I am still dreaming so I am good. 🙂
