adventure

Every man ought to be inquisitive through every hour of his great adventure down to the day when he shall no longer cast a shadow in the sun. For if he dies without a question in his heart, what excuse is there for his existence? - Frank Moore Colby
Men in general are too material and do not make enough human contacts. If we search for the fundamentals which actually motivate us, we will find that they come under four headings: love, money, adventure and religion. It is to some of them that we always owe that big urge which pushes us onward. Men who crush these impulses and settle down to everyday routine are bound to sink into mediocrity. No man is a complete unity of himself; he needs the contact, the stimulus and the driving power which is generated by his contact with other men, their ideas and constantly changing scenes. - Edward S. "Ned" Jordan
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. - Garrison Keillor, fully Gary Edward "Garrison" Keillor
Life's greatest adventure is in doing one's level best. - Arthur Ernest Morgan
The joy of mental adventure is far commoner in the young than in grown men and women. -
There is evil in the world, but it can be overcome through repentance and aspiration, and therein lies the true meaning and adventure in life. - Abba Hillel Silver
Since the mind is a specific biocomputer, it needs specific instructions and directions. The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, learn about them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them. -
An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered. - G. K. Chesterton, fully Gilbert Keith Chesterton
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. -
Security is mostly superstition. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright experience. Life is either daring adventure or nothing. -
