Life is an Adventure

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.
-Helen Keller

It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves - in finding themselves. -Andre Gide

We love because it's the only true adventure. -Nikki Giovanni

Life is uncharted territory. It reveals its story one moment at a time. -Leo F. Buscaglia

Adventure is not outside man; it is within. -David Grayson

When you're safe at home you wish you were having an adventure; when you're having an adventure you wish you were safe at home. -Thornton Wilder

One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure. -William Feather


  1. These are great, Bob!

    I found this one that you might like:

    I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time. --Jack London

  2. Amazing quote from Helen Keller, considering the things that I would call problems in her life. Good advice to keep plugging along and look expectantly at life. I love the things you find to share on the blog and facebook. Really good stuff.

  3. I loved the HK quote too. I wish I could look at life in the same way!

    Here's mine:

    "An adventure is what you call suffering after it's over." Missy
