Mark Twain Quote Printable Decor | Printable Creations


Happy first day of November! Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween yesterday. This week’s Printable Creations quote is from the great Mark Twain and is pulled from a much longer quote:  

“20 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 safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain


I really like the idea of carpe diem and living life to the fullest. I want to take advantage of the fun and unique opportunities that I can. For example, when I was in college, we were required to spend a semester not at A&M, whether that was a semester abroad or an internship. Three of us from my major decided to spend a semester in...Australia. It was such a fun opportunity to not only see, but live in the land down under for a few months. Later that school year, I got to go on a trip to England with my church group to learn about Methodist history. So much international travel for so short a time period but also so worth it.

For me, travel is a big part of my bucket list, but the places you explore, dream about, and discover don’t necessarily have to be far away places. They can be right in your hometown or city. Live life to the fullest no matter where you are or what you are doing. “Throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.” Carpe Diem!

Use this Mark Twain quote printable decor to inspire and encourage yourself in your home, office, dorm, or classroom. You can print it at home and hang it in a frame, with cute washi tape, or a fun thumbtack. Be creative!
