A way to live - according to Mark Twain ....

Yesterday, in pursuit of my search for something new to learn, I came across this quotation.
  "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.
Explore. Dream. Discover."     
Mark Twain

I like it .......

Well, to be quite honest I was looking for the best £:$ exchange rate, and didn't manage to find one that was quite good enough! Do I wait in the hope that tomorrow will give a better rate, or buy now just in case tomorrow is worse? Decisions, decisions.

I wonder what Mark Twain would say .........


  1. Great saying, as for the exchange rate and the stock market at the moment who knows!!!! Diane

  2. One of my favourite quotes and exactly why I am grateful to be having our Italian adventure. As for the stock market, as Diane says who knows!

  3. It's a lottery whatever you decide to do.

  4. Thanks everyone. The ups (occasional)and downs (more frequent) of exchange rates are the bane of my life. I know that it's almost impossible to second guess them!
