Joy

There’s more joy in austerity than pleasure in indulgence. Austerity decides wisely, neither anticipates nor regrets, refrains from unnecessary action, keeps the body clean, lean and relaxed, and maintains a bit in the mouth of the mind.

Ray

Ray Charles laughed: “I don’t regret a damn thing.”

How could the libidinous, drug-taking troubadour say this? Because nothing is damned, everything belongs and a moment spent in regret is a moment wasted.

Regret

Cows vomit their food in order to re-chew it. Men are similarly engaged, are wetly ruminant, when they regret the past.

A moment spent in regret is a moment squandered.

Memories: “The rag and bone shop of the heart.”
