You’ve already done plenty of things to regret.
You just don’t know what they are. It’s when you discover them.
When you see the folly in something you’ve done and you wish that you had it to do over, but you know you can’t because it’s too late.
So you pick that thing up and you carry it with you to remind you that life goes on, the world will spin without you.
It really doesn’t matter in the end.
Then, you will attain character, because honesty will reach out from inside and tattoo itself across your face.

Well, I'll be a son of a bitch! I don't smoke, you quit drinking, Bob here wouldn't even dream of looking at another woman with lust... between the three of us, we're practically Jesus.

Sometimes you gotta chew your own leg off to get out of life's traps.

Beitman, Larry PG-13 3 Phil, man, we're in Witchita, Kansas. What does it matter whether we're on the first floor or the 500th floor? It all looks the same!

Throw me in the water and see if I can swim.
--I think you're missing the point, Bob. We're about to throw you off a cliff and see if you can fly.

Because if you know what you are doing, then you don't have to look like you know what you are doing, because it comes naturally.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth, well never mind, you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they faded.
Trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now, how much possibility was before you and how fabulous you really looked.
You are not as fat as you imagine.
Don’t worry about the future or worry but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum.
The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4 pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you.
Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts; don’t put up with other people who are reckless with yours.
Don’t waste your time on jealously, sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.
The race is long, and in the end its only with yourself.
Remember compliments you receive; forget the insults.
If you succeed in doing this tell me how.

Keep your old love letters - Throw away your old bank statements.
Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life.
The most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives.
Some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.

Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.
Maybe you’ll marry; maybe you won’t.
Maybe you’ll have children; maybe you won’t.
Maybe you’ll divorce at 40; Maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken at your 75th wedding anniversary.
Whatever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or bright yourself either.
You choices are ½ chance - so are everybody else’s.

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can - Don’t be afraid of it - or what other people think of it; It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.
Dance - even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.
Read the directions - even if you don’t follow them.
Do not read beauty magazines they will only make you feel ugly.
