A Quote by Mark Twain on dreams, exploration, regrets, no fear, explore, dream, and discover

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

A Quote by Mark Twain on vegetarianism

I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't…The pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.
