You feel remorse for running over that little old lady when you were drunk.

You feel regret when you think how much better it would have been if you had run over (and then backed up over) your college freshman roommate.

In the first instance, it’s something you did do which was bad, so you feel remorse.

We regret the things we didn’t do.

Thank you to Christopher Hitchens. He had a better education than I did, but he shares what he knows.
