Mark Twain should have been a blogger

Cast off your bowline!

Cast off your Bowline….set sail and discover!

October 2, 2012

Can you imagine what Mark Twain would think about today’s writing world?  What would he post in his blog?  I know that if he was a blogger, I would be a subscriber!  I found this quote by him.  See what you think:

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

Isn’t that one of the greatest quotes ever?  I wish I had found it when I was twenty, or even thirty.  But for those of us over 50.  the point is still just as relevant.  In fact maybe even more so.  Think about it.  Look back over your life.  Think of all the things you didn’t do and wish you would have.  But that is NOT the point.  The point is do you want to do that in twenty years and still be saying “I wish I had……”, or “I should have…..”.  Not no but a big H(&^ no!

So throw off the bow lines.  Leave your safe harbor!  Explore, dream, discover….and look back after the next twenty years and say “I am so glad I……..”.  See you there!
