Mr Natural - R Crumb

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.




Mark Twain

It's the things we don't do that cause the most regret. Love the Tom Rush music. Give me back my job again. Dignity.

I really like this whole thing, except my headphones are busted so I can't hear the music.

I should heed the Twain, but I d-don't, I don't...

He also wrote "A conspiracy of paper"

are you familiar with either book?

Larry said...

diva: Yep on all counts!

decker: Sorry you can't hear the song. Most of us don't, but when we do, we are pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

dw: I've read the 1st and have the latter on my list of "to read!" As for the CT, you felt as if you were there in the area, making the deals , walking the streets and tasting for the 1st time, coffee.

larry: Thanks for popping by!

Magnificent advice! Too bad that more folks don’t follow it.

Mary said...

Excellent quote!

DivaJood said...

Coffee, I've tagged you. Details at my place.

Bobby D. said...

I love Tom Rush too... I feel a bit guilty-am stealing internet access from the people across the street to be here!

dennis said...

Dennis guesses this means Tony is going to Italy. Yes Yes Yes!

Coffee Messiah said...

nick: It's hard, until you do it of course, and the results can be scary good.

mary: Thanks for stopping by.

diva: I've been tagged so many times, my shoulder hurts. I stopped though when I gave up on the political blog. Thanks 4 asking and sorry I have to decline. Please don't think ill of me. ; (

dc: No problem and appreciate you looking in, no matter how you get here. ; )

dennis: I'm thinking yes....

Kurt said...

Mark Twain was a miserable cuss in his later years, but it's still good advice.

Coffee Messiah said...

kurt: I wonder why he was so miserable? ; (

I can venture to guess though! ; (

Kurt said...

House burned down, daughter died. More.

Coffee Messiah said...

kurt: I knew that, I thought maybe there may have been something else written not as obvious.
