Paul Watson- A person without regrets is a person who has not lived a life of diversity of interests and cause.
I remember watching late night talk shows when I was considerably younger and hearing more than one celebrity superstar claim that they wouldn't change a single thing that occurred in their lives.

So, you're like this perfect person, the ultimate human being!? Never made a mistake, never made a wrong move, never hurt anyone unnecessarily... I've never, ever met anyone like that! Because the only other explanation is that you're a selfish, callous, uncaring excuse of a human being who couldn't give a rat's ass about anyone other than themselves- and there's lots of those...
