This (possibly anonymous) quote is often attributed to the novelist and poet, Mary Ann Evans, who went by the pen name, George Eliot. However, there is no substantial evidence that she said or wrote these words. Nevertheless, these words were fortunately recorded by someone. Therefore, they continue to serve as inspiration.
“It’s never too late to be what you might have been,” speaks to our untapped potential–our “dreams deferred”–our fading hopes.
Being the best at whatever that thing we wish we could have been is a great ambition to have. However, that is not the point. What matters here is that we do whatever it is while we can. Because most often, it’s never too late to be it in some way.
