The Toyota Corolla “Explore, Dream, Discover” Commercial

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

If you think the writer of this Toyota Corolla commercial deserves a raise because of the copy, you might be disappointed to know that it’s not original. I knew it because a bunch of people from my high school used it as a senior quote back in the day (and presumably the current high schoolers still are). It’s a quote popularly attributed to Mark Twain, but he is never found to have actually said or written it. So who did?
