Adventure quotes page 1

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. Security is mostly a superstition. It does
not exist in nature.
Helen Keller

Men of age object too much, consult too long, adventure too little, repent too soon, and
seldom drive business home to the full period, but content themselves with a mediocrity of
success.
Sir Francis Bacon, The Essays: Or Counsels, Civil and Moral

In the wild, turkeys are amazing. When domesticated, turkeys are so stupid they have to be
kept from accidentally killing themselves a dozen different ways. Gentlemen, let's admit it:
most of us are tragically overdomesticated. We have hardly any connection to the wild or our
wilder selves. Words like adventure, exploit, and quest no longer apply to us. It is why we are
soft, whiney, and bored.
Stephen Mansfield

Life is pure adventure and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life
as art.

T. S. Eliot

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that 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.
Mark Twain

The danger of an adventure is worth a thousand days of ease and comfort.
Paulo Coelho

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
Mark Twain

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well
preserved body; but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and
loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a ride!'"
Hunter S. Thompson

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

To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.
Joanne K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

The journey, not the arrival matters.
T. S. Eliot

My life is an adventure still being written - and so is yours. Start writing the first chapter now!
Fill it with adventure and love happiness. Live the story as you write it!
Nick Vujicic

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
Andre Gide

Adventure is worthwhile.
Aesop

To all those who lead monotonous lives in the hope that they may experience at second
hand the delights and dangers of adventure.
Agatha Christie

An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered. An adventure is an inconvenience
rightly considered.
G. K. Chesterton

I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate.
Vincent van Gogh

Believe me! The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment from
life is to live dangerously!
Friedrich Nietzsche

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.
St. Augustine

I think because I have great difficulty saying the word "no," almost every day's a different
adventure.
Sir Richard Branson

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or even
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.
Denis Waitley

It is never too late to be who you might have been.
George Eliot

Always do what you are afraid to do.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.
Oprah Winfrey

The one who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks
alone, is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been.
Albert Einstein

Try to live with the same intensity as a child. He doesn't ask for explanations; he dives into
each day as if it were a new adventure and, at night, sleeps tired and happy.
Paulo Coelho

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.
Lao Tzu

The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to
change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity
of life is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of
life is to give.
William Arthur Ward
