Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Regret
 
A feeling of sadness and longing
  That is not akin to pain,
And resembles sorrow only
  As the mist resembles the rain.
        Longfellow.—The Day is Done.
  1
For time will teach thee soon the truth,
  There are no birds in last year’s nest.
        Longfellow.—It is not always May.
  2
For of all sad words of tongue or pen,
The saddest are these: “It might have been!”
        Whittier.—Maud Muller.
