I've looked all over Google for whoever said this quote. I know of a similar one by Robert Doisneau that goes "Life is short. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly." but I'm not sure if that's paraphrased from this quote: "Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile." Can anyone help me? Thanks!

I think it is one of the graphic designs (logos) made for myspace.

Here you go:

Life is short, break the rules, forgive
quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off
the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

~ Mark Twain ~

Hope that helps!

The quote isn't an authentic Twain quote according to the Twain website. It looks like a mixture of various quotes.

I don't know about the first bit of the quote, but "Never regret something that once made you smile" is by Amber Deckers.

The quote is by Mark Twain.

Regarding Rala's statement that the last part of the quote is by Amber Deckers, Mark Twain could not have borrowed or stolen a quote by Amber Deckers, could he--unless he was a time traveler? I'm pretty sure he wasn't, else he would have bragged about the fact. He lived before Amber Deckers from what I've been able to find about Amber Deckers.
