Gabrielle Zevin

Gabrielle Zevin’s New York Times-bestselling novel "Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow" follows the lives of friends and video game designers Sam, Sadie, and Marx. This quote appears as Marx, once a dedicated student actor, confesses to Sadie that he doesn’t regret not pursuing a career in acting. The sentiment reflects his philosophy, a belief that's mirrored by the endless possibilities for exploration and experimentation found in video games. Zevin’s words remind us that while we are limited to just one life, we have many opportunities for new and enriching experiences. Rather than being a source of sadness, the inevitability of change can bring a sense of excitement and joy.
