George Eliot: Too Late


"It's never too late to be what you might have been."

This quote really speaks to the part of me that catalogs regrets, which I spend far too much time reviewing.

When I feel paralyzed by the immense barreling rate of time passing me by and think of all the things I haven’t done, I should just remember this quote and realize that might-have-beens don’t have to stay that way.
Disclaimer for the strongly-analytic: I realize that, technically speaking, it is too late sometimes, but this quote applies to the vast majority of situations and   therefore carries valuable truth.
