Quote on crying over spilt milk

...if by 'milk' it is meant all or any earthly good whatever, it is the 'spilt milk' that we should lament. There is no reason to cry for the milk that has not been wasted, the good that is not lost. So let us cry for the spilt milk, by all means, if by doing so we learn how to avoid spilling any more. Let us cry for the spilt milk, and remember how, and where, and why, we spilt it. Much wisdom is learnt through tears, but none by forgetting our lessons.

~ María Amparo Ruiz de Burton
