I would pick more daisies.

thought for the day:

"If I had my life to live over again, I wold try to make more mistakes next time!
I would relax, I would limber up, I would be sillier than I have been this trip.

I know of very few things that I would take seriously.
I would take more trips.
I would be crazier.
I would climb more mountains, swim more rivers and watch more sunsets.
I would do more walking and looking.
I would eat more ice cream and less beans.

I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary ones.
You see, I am one of those people who lives life prophylactically
and sensibly hour by hour, day after day.
Oh, I have had my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I would have more of them.
In fact, I'd try to have nothing else, just moments, one after another.
Instead, of living so many years ahead each day.

I've been one of those people who never go anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a gargle, a raincoat, aspirin, and a parachute.
If I had to do it over again, I would go places, do things and travel lighter than I have.

If I had my life to live over, I would start barefooted earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall.
I would play hookey more.

I would not make such good grades, except by accident.
I would ride on more merry go rounds.

I would pick more daisies."
