Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. Security 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 exposure.
Adventure: the pursuit of life.
It is better to be adventurous than cautious, because fortune is a woman.
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.
There are two kinds of adventurers: those who go truly hoping to find adventure, and those who go secretly hoping they won’t.
If we didn’t live venturously, plucking the wild goat by the beard, and trembling over precipices, we should never be depressed, I’ve no doubt; but already should be faded, fatalistic and aged.
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
Adventure is something you seek for pleasure, or even for profit, like a gold rush or invading a country;… but experience is what really happens to you in the long run; the truth that finally overtakes you.
A life without adventure is likely to be unsatisfying, but a life in which adventure is allowed to take whatever form it will is sure to be short.
Who dares nothing, need hope for nothing.
