  • A. A. Milne    Christopher Robin was sitting outside his door, putting on his Big Boots.

  • Agatha Christie    Your travel life has the aspect of a dream. It is something outside the normal, yet you are in it. It is peopled with characters you have never seen before and in all probability will never see again. It brings occasional homesickness, and loneliness, and pangs of longing ... But you are like the Vikings who have gone into a world of adventure, and home is not home until you return.
  • Agnes Smedley    But settled things were enemies to me and soon lost their newness and color. The unknown called.

  • Alan Cohen    Your life is not a problem to be solved, but an adventure to be enjoyed. You are doing better than you think.

  • Alastair Humphreys    Adventure is just about doing something you’ve never done— doing it with enthusiasm and curiosity: doing something difficult with passion.
  • Alastair Humphreys    See the opportunities for adventures, not the constraints that get in the way.
  • Albert Camus    What gives value to travel is fear. It is a fact that, at a certain moment, when we are so far from our own country, we are seized by a vague fear and an instinctive desire to go back to the protection of old habits. I look upon it more as an occasion for testing.
  • Alex Honnold    Seven years ago, when I started free soloing long, hard routes in Yosemite - climbing without a rope, gear or a partner - I did it because it seemed like the purest, most elegant way to scale big walls. Climbing, especially soloing, felt like a grand adventure, but I never dreamed it could be a profession.
  • Alex Lowe    I would let climbing slide away if I had to maintain my relationship with my family. Because it really is the big adventure.
  • Alexander Eliot    I have but one life to give to adventure.

  • Alfred North Whitehead    Art flourishes where there is a sense of adventure.
  • Alfred North Whitehead    In a living civilization there is always an element of unrest, for sensitiveness to ideas means curiosity, adventure, change. Civilized order survives on its merits and is transformed by its power of recognizing its imperfections.
  • Alfred North Whitehead    Without adventure all civilization is full of decay.
  • Alice Hegan Rice    The fascinating thing about ideals is that no sooner have we gained a desired peak than we find farther and higher peaks beyond. The thrilling adventure never ends.

  • Angelina Jolie    I want to work; then, as my kids get older, I want to have adventures. I want to visit all their countries: learn and live inside all their cultures.
  • Ann Bancroft    Growing up in a rural setting in Minnesota, I was raised with the outdoors and a sense of adventure.
  • Anne Bancroft    A life lesson for me is, how do you muster the courage to take on a new risk? Whether it's starting up a business or taking on a new project or expedition. I think the risks that we take are all relative to the risk-taker.
  • Anne Morrow Lindbergh    It is the striving after perfection that makes one an artist. It is the sense that one is imperfect, unfulfilled, unfinished. One attempts by a superhuman effort to fill the gap, to leap over it, to finish it in another medium. And one creates a third and separate thing: 'Adventure rarely reaches its predetermined end. Columbus never reached China. But he discovered America.'
  • Annie Besant    Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly, as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country, to face many a danger, to meet many a joy, to find many a comrade, to win and lose many a battle.
  • Anthony Bourdain    Hong Kong is a wonderful, mixed-up town where you've got great food and adventure. First and foremost, it's a great place to experience China in a relatively accessible way.
  • Anthony Bourdain    The Congo was the most difficult shoot of my life but was also maybe the greatest adventure of my life.
  • Anthony Holden    Consider developing your whole self with the same raw focus and intensity that you develop a particular skill set. Get focused. Go out, have adventures. Run, jump, skin your knee, fall in love, root loudly for the away team at a baseball game, barely escape a crash of stampeding rhinos, live to see another day. Experience things big and small. Go for a walk. The world is full of wonders.
  • Antoine de Saint-Exupery    I will appoint captains to rule my cities, for it is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.
  • Anton Corbijn    I've always thought photography was a bit of an adventure, so to come home with the film, develop it, then look at the results has more of a sense of excitement.
  • Anton du Beke    Life's supposed to be an adventure, a surprise!
  • Antony Gormley    I always like to look for adventure when I go away. I have gone on several horse adventures with my wife - from Guangxi we went up to the High Tibetan region. We also went along the Hurunui River on horseback in the South Island of New Zealand.
  • Archibald Hill    Perhaps the spirit of adventure, be it mental or material adventure, is a factor so essential in human progress that no emphasis of it is undue.
  • Archibald Hill    The pursuit of natural knowledge, the investigation of the world - mental and material - in which we live, is not a dull and spiritless affair: rather is it a voyage of adventure of the human mind, a holiday for reckless and imaginative souls.
  • Arianna Huffington    The journey toward self-discovery is life's greatest adventure.
  • Aristophanes    Why, I'd like nothing better than to achieve some bold adventure, worthy of our trip.
  • Aristotle    Adventure is worthwhile.
  • Aron Ralston    So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,for each day to have a new and different sun.
  • Arthur Compton    Life in the twentieth century undeniably has ... such richness, joy and adventure as were unknown to our ancestors except in their dreams.
  • Asa Hutchinson    My life has never been a part of a big plan. It's more of an unfolding adventure.
  • Ayn Rand    In that world, you'll be able to rise in the morning with the spirit you had known in your childhood: that spirit of eagerness, adventure and certainty which comes from dealing with a rational universe.
  • Baba Kalyani    It's the adventure, the adrenaline-flowing, risk-taking in outdoor activities that attracts me.
  • Baden Powell de Aquino    Boys can see adventure in a dirty old duck puddle, and if the Scoutmaster is a boys' man he can see it, too.
  • Barbara Hurd    Caves so often symbolize rebirth. It's a hidden space, an expected, inscrutable space. Strange things live in there - eyeless salamanders, albino fish, a prophet's epiphanies.
  • Barbara Hurd    Going into a cave might be like going inside one's own mind, crawling around in the pitch-black, nook-and-crannied labyrinth of the human psyche.
  • Baron de Montesquieu    It is always the adventurous who accomplish great things.
  • Bear Grylls    Accidents on big mountains happen when people's ambitions cloud their good judgment. Good climbing is about climbing with heart and with instinct, not ambition and pride.
  • Bear Grylls    Adventure should be 80 percent 'I think this is manageable,' but it's good to have that last 20 percent where you're right outside your comfort zone. Still safe, but outside your comfort zone.
  • Bear Grylls    Being brave isn't the absence of fear. Being brave is having that fear but finding a way through it.
  • Bear Grylls    But the wild is unpredictable, stuff does happen, and it's always when you're least expecting it.
  • Bear Grylls    I hang out all the time with kids and young scouts and I never meet kids who don't want adventure.
  • Bear Grylls    I loved climbing because of the freedom, and having time and space. I remember coming off Everest for the last time, thinking of Dad and wishing that he could have seen what I saw. He would have loved it.
  • Bear Grylls    Life is an adventure that is best lived boldly
  • Bear Grylls    Life's full of lots of dream-stealers always telling you you need to do something more sensible. I think it doesn't matter what your dream is, just fight the dream-stealers and hold onto it.
  • Bear Grylls    My work is all about adventure and teamwork in some of the most inhospitable jungles, mountains and deserts on the planet. If you aren't able to look after yourself and each other, then people die.
  • Bear Grylls    Our fate is determined by how far we are prepared to push ourselves to stay alive - the decisions we make to survive. We must do whatever it takes to endure and make it through alive.
  • Bear Grylls    People ask me, "How do I succeed?" Whatever it is they do, I say, "Go and find 20 ways of messing it up. By 21, you'll be getting there." Life is an adventure, go back with cuts, scars and bruises.
  • Bear Grylls    Survival is not about being fearless. It's about making a decision, getting on and doing it, because I want to see my kids again, or whatever the reason might be.
  • Bear Grylls    Survival requires us to leave our prejudices at home. It's about doing whatever it takes - and ultimately those with the biggest heart will win.
  • Bear Grylls    That feeling when you're so cold you'd give anything to be warm - I've had it before, literally huddled around a candle flame on an ice sheet.
  • Bear Grylls    The appeal of the wild for me is its unpredictability. You have to develop an awareness, react fast, be resourceful and come up with a plan and act on it.
  • Bear Grylls    The extremes of jungles, mountains, and deserts are inherently dangerous places.
  • Bear Grylls    The special forces gave me the self-confidence to do some extraordinary things in my life. Climbing Everest then cemented my belief in myself.
  • Bear Grylls    To me, adventure has always been to me the connections and bounds you create with people when you're there. And you can have that anywhere.
  • Bear Grylls    Weather can kill you so fast. The first priority of survival is getting protection from the extreme weather.
  • Bear Grylls    What Scouting says to people is: Every child has a right to have an adventure. Life is about grabbing opportunities
  • Bear Grylls    When I'm filming, survival requires movement. You need your energy, and you've got to eat the bad stuff, and survival food is rarely pretty, but you kind of do it. I get in that zone, and I eat the nasty stuff, but I'm not like that when I'm back home.
  • Bear Grylls    You don't need to go to the ends of the earth, you don't need to climb Everest to have a great adventure, it's invariably on our doorstep.
  • Beatrix Potter    We cannot stay home all our lives, we must present ourselves to the world and we must look upon it as an adventure.
  • Ben Eine    I painted the words "GREAT ADVENTURE" in Beijing, Dallas, San Francisco, Copenhagen, and Japan. What it means to me is completely different to everybody else. And that's what I love about random words and phrases taken out of context: everyone applies their own context. If you want to apply something political or meaningful to a word I wrote on the side of the wall, then it's up to you.
  • Ben Howard    In England, it's usually cold. So surfing is more of an adventure where you're floating around in a big, dark, stormy sea rather than the California notion of girls in bikinis on beaches. It's really going into the fray. I like it because it gives you the extra time and space you need to think.
  • Ben Saunders    Environmental scientists in Canada said it was impossible for me to get to the Pole in 2004... I said 'no,' it's still OK, and I can still get there, and I did.
  • Ben Saunders    Expeditions are escapism. The stuff that we're normally concerned about just doesn't matter out there. Tax returns, gas bill, none of it. Life becomes very simple, it's about moving in a certain direction - north if you're going north - staying warm and not getting eaten. That's it.
  • Ben Saunders    My Antarctic expedition is just about doable, just feasible and that's what is exciting to me. If I knew it was possible, if I knew I could do it without too much bother, I wouldn't be interested.
  • Ben Saunders    What's the nastiest injury I've sustained? Just a frostbitten toe... but thankfully it's still intact.
  • Ben Saunders    When I'm skiing, I listen to electronic music. It's repetitive and let's me get into a groove and crank out the miles.
  • Benjamin Disraeli    Adventures are to the adventurous.
  • Benjamin Disraeli    The fruit of my tree of knowledge is plucked, and it is this: “Adventures are to the adventurous.”
  • Berkeley Breathed    I'll confess right here that I secretly wish I'd have drawn a strip about a little boy with a fake tiger, going for adventures throughout the universe in spaceships of his imagination.
  • Bernadette Roberts    This journey then, is nothing more, yet nothing less than a period of acclimating to a new way of seeing, a time of transition and revelation as it gradually comes upon "that" which remains when there is no self. This is not a journey for those who expect love and bliss, rather, it is for the hardy who have been tried by fire and have come to rest in a tough, immovable trust in "that" which lies beyond the known, beyond the self, beyond union and even beyond love and trust itself.
  • Bernard Pivot    It is very difficult to generalise. Everyone's adventure is original.
  • Bertrand Piccard    My life and the life of my family has to do with exploration, with adventure. My grandfather was the first man in the stratosphere, and my father was the first to touch the deepest point in the ocean... For me, adventure and exploration is something in the blood.
  • Bertrand Russell    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.
  • Bertrand Russell    It will be said that the joy of mental adventure must be rare, that there are few who can appreciate it, and that ordinary education can take no account of so aristocratic a good. I do not believe this. The joy of mental adventure is far commoner in the young than in grown men and women... It is rare in later life because everything is done to kill it during education.
  • Bertrand Russell    The world that we must seek is a world in which the creative spirit is alive, in which life is an adventure full of joy and hope, based rather upon the impulse to construct than upon the desire to retain what we possess or to seize what is possessed by others.
  • Betty Friedan    Getting older is an adventure, not a problem.
  • Bill Bowerman    There's no such thing as bad weather, just soft people.
  • Bill Frist    Space offers extraordinary potential for commerce and adventure, for new innovations and new tests of will. As Americans, we can't help but reach for the stars. It's our nature. It's our destiny.
  • Bill Stone    Cave divers, of course, deal with an elevated level of risk, and the most that I can say here is that we tend to conduct our work at the bottom of a deep cave on an extremely conservative basis with heavy levels of backup equipment and a policy to abort if any single person doesn't like the situation underwater at any time during the mission.
  • Bill Stone    Caves are whimsical things, and geology on a local scale is random and unpredictable.
  • Bill Stone    Generally speaking, moving water is the most dangerous thing you can encounter underground.
  • Bill Stone    Many people think all I do is some random engineering work in between caving expeditions. It's been far more deliberate than that.
  • Billy Connolly    There's no such thing as bad weather - only the wrong clothes.
  • Billy Graham    The word 'romance,' according to the dictionary, means excitement, adventure, and something extremely real. Romance should last a lifetime.
  • Bitty Schram    I like to find adventure.
  • Bob Bitchin    And after two days in civilization we realized we could never stay for long and started to plan our next adventure.
  • Bob Bitchin    Attitude is the difference between ordeal and adventure
  • Bob Black    I call for a collective adventure in generalized joy and freely interdependent exuberance.
  • Bob Weir    I was gifted with a life that was full of adventure. I've always believed, if you're gifted, that it's incumbent not to think about giving something back.
  • Brian Blessed    My parents taught me honesty, truth, compassion, kindness and how to care for people. Also, they encouraged me to take risks, to boldly go. They taught me that the greatest danger in life is not taking the adventure.
  • Brian Blessed    You can't call it an adventure unless it's tinged with danger. The greatest danger in life, though, is not taking the adventure at all. To have the objective of a life of ease is death. I think we've all got to go after our own Everest.
  • Brian Clough    What joy and adventure the youngsters of today are missing as they sit indoors mucking about with computer games and videos!
  • Brian Greene    Science is the greatest of all adventure stories, one that's been unfolding for thousands of years as we have sought to understand ourselves and our surroundings.
  • Brian Jacques    Sometimes, I get ideas from dreams. Often, my stories are based on adventures that I, or my friends, have actually lived.
  • Brian Molko    There is nothing more wonderful in life than seeing life as an adventure. We should all try things that we're afraid of. We should all look very clearly into the unknown and enjoy it. Because when you come in contact with things that you really don't know, that's when you're truly living.
  • Brian Skerry    As a young boy, I was very interested - as I still am - in all sorts of adventure and exploration. I thought about being an astronaut, a dinosaur scientist, or marine biologist, but I clearly was drawn to the ocean and to the water.
  • Bryan Davis    I believe God has instilled in us a craving, a deep desire to run with Him on a fantastic adventure, yet many of us crawl along in life without even a glimpse of our hidden passion. There has to be a reason for living. There must be a Camelot, a hidden Utopia where we can rest from our personal campaigns. Fantasy opens our eyes to a better place, a shining city we do not yet know. And these stories provide a mental bridge to that city as we pursue horizons we could never distinguish with our physical eyes.
  • Buffalo Bill Cody    But the love of adventure was in father's blood.
  • Buzz Aldrin    As we begin to have landings on the moon, we can alternate those with vertical launch of similar crew modules on similar launch vehicles for vertical-launch tourism in space, if you want to call it that... adventure travel.
  • Buzz Aldrin    I believe that space travel will one day become as common as airline travel is today. I'm convinced, however, that the true future of space travel does not lie with government agencies -- NASA is still obsessed with the idea that the primary purpose of the space program is science -- but real progress will come from private companies competing to provide the ultimate adventure ride, and NASA will receive the trickle-down benefits.
  • Buzz Aldrin    Space tourism is a logical outgrowth of the adventure tourist market.
  • Candice Millard    When I began work on my first book, The River of Doubt, which tells the story of Theodore Roosevelts 1914 descent of an unmapped river in the Amazon rainforest, I thought of it as a tale of adventure, exploration and extraordinary courage.
  • Carl Jung    Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health.
  • Carol Ryrie Brink    Life is just a lot of everyday adventures.
  • Carol Shields    Why should men be allowed to strut under the privilege of their life adventures, wearing them like a breast full of medals, while women went all gray and silent beneath the weight of theirs?
  • Caroline Myss    The ability to know that your perceptions are accurate has to happen without others' validation. Intuition is not the result of diet, rituals, or wind chimes. It's the natural consequence of having self-esteem, the greatest power you can have. With self-esteem, your life can broaden into an adventure because you can know in your gut that you can handle the unknown. And you can handle helping others without fear, which is true liberation.
  • Carolyn Gold Heilbrun    We in middle age require adventure.
  • Catherine Bell    I like all the adventure sports but I like to do them in a safe way.
  • Cedric Bixler-Zavala    Most people like to backpack through Europe; I think the States is big enough for you to have an adventure in.
  • Celestine Sibley    A woman who rides a motorcycle is in tune with the universe, a candidate for high adventure.
  • Charles de Lint    You wouldn't want any creative process to lose its sense of fun and adventure, but that doesn't mean you can't take it seriously as well.
  • Charles Elachi    Every month we do a bold adventure. This is the golden age of space exploration.
  • Charles Frohman    Why fear death? It is the most beautiful adventure in life.
  • Charles Halford    The biggest challenge is probably some of the physicality. Some stuff you would never want to experience, in real life, but it's still such an adventure that it's worth all the scrapes and bruises and mud between the toes.
  • Charles Lindbergh    Alone? Is he alone at whose right side rides Courage, with Skill within the cockpit and faith upon the left? Does solitude surround the brave when Adventure leads the way and Ambition reads the dials? Is there no company with him, for whom the air is cleft by Daring and the darkness made light by Emprise?
  • Charles Lindbergh    Any coward can sit in his home and criticize a pilot for flying into a mountain in a fog. But I would rather, by far, die on a mountainside than in bed. What kind of man would live where there is no daring? And is life so dear that we should blame men for dying in adventure? Is there a better way to die?
  • Charles Lindbergh    It was that quality that led me into aviation in the first place — it was a love of the air and sky and flying, the lure of adventure, the appreciation of beauty. It lay beyond the descriptive words of man — where immortality is touched through danger, where life meets death on equal plane; where man is more than man, and existence both supreme and valueless at the same instant.
  • Charles Lindbergh    Pilots are drawn to flying because it's a perfect combination of science, romance and adventure.
  • Charles Lindbergh    The life of an aviator seemed to me ideal. It involved skill. It brought adventure. It made use of the latest developments of science. Mechanical engineers were fettered to factories and drafting boards while pilots have the freedom of wind with the expanse of sky. There were times in an aeroplane when it seemed I had escaped mortality to look down on earth like a God.
  • Charles MacArthur    Men of vision. Oh, I love the fine names men give each other to hide their greed and lust for adventure.
  • Charlie Chaplin    In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it is written that the kingdom of God is within man, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure... Let us fight to free the world! To do away with national barriers! To do away with greed, with hate and intolerance! Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all mens happiness.
  • Charlotte Sophia Kasl    Prepare for joy - speak your truth, care for yourself, expand your knowledge, nurture your friendships, let people love you, take on new adventures, go where your heart leads you.
  • Chloe Kim    It's a pretty crazy adrenaline rush because I feel like every run is different. You can never really expect anything. It's like a new adventure every time you drop into the pipe.
  • Chris Pavone    Expats are a self-selecting group of outgoing, confident people - if you're not those things, you probably don't choose this adventure - and the lifestyle is very conducive to making fast, close friends.
  • Christian Louboutin    It is a great thing to be at your age... You are at a very specific time of age ... an age where you can follow all your dreams. But also at an age when you can change-you can change your dreams, you can change paths. When you start something when you're young, you should not decide 'this is it, this is my way and I will go all the way.' You have the age where you can change. You get experience, and maybe dislike it and go another way. Your age is still an age of exploration.
  • Christian Nestell Bovee    It is invidious to distinguish particular men as adventurers: we are all such.
  • Christopher Columbus    Following the light of the sun, we left the Old World.
  • Christopher Columbus    No one should fear to undertake any task in the name of our Saviour, if it is just and if the intention is purely for His holy service.
  • Christopher Doyle    As we've seen the rise of cultural, environmental and educational tourism in adventure travel, we've also seen the rise of female participation. Part of that is due to changes in women's attitudes about their own abilities. As more women participate in such things as fly-fishing, whitewater kayaking and bicycling, we're also seeing concurrent growth in those areas in adventure travel.
  • Christopher Doyle    Women are one of the most important segments of the adventure travel industry. Women make the vast majority of travel decisions in families - not only the destinations, but the activities. They are the predominant adventure travel planners.
  • Christopher McCandless    But in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
  • Christopher McCandless    So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality, nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit.
  • Christopher McCandless    The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
  • Christopher McCandless    Tramping is too easy with all this money. My days were more exciting when I was penniless and had to forage around for my next meal... I've decided that I'm going to live this life for some time to come. The freedom and simple beauty of it is just too good to pass up.
  • Christopher McCandless    Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, 'cause “the West is the best.” And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure, the climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual revolution. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the great white North. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild.
  • Cindy Ross    Returning home is the most difficult part of long-distance hiking; You have grown outside the puzzle and your piece no longer fits.
  • Clive Cussler    I'm considered the 'old daddy of adventure.'
  • Colleen Houck    What is real and what is not is for your heart to decide and for your heart to know.
  • Confucius    Wherever you go, go with all your heart.
  • Conrad Anker    Climbing, as my grandmother said, it's a pretty frivolous thing. She always wondered when I was going to get a real job. But climbing is a real job for me now, and I enjoy it. It's a gift that I'm able to do it, share adventure and motivation with people.
  • Conrad Anker    It's more of an adventure when you set off into unknown territory, and there's nothing like that feeling you get when you discover a place on the Earth where no one has ever been.
  • Conrad Anker    Once I graduated from university, I wanted to climb and be outdoors as much as possible. I worked as a part-time carpenter and kept up a relationship with The North Face. One thing led to another, and I'm lucky to be where I am now. It was a circuitous path with lots of adventure throughout.
  • Conrad Anker    Specifically choose not to take a GPS. Just create a challenge. You can climb Everest or walk across Antarctica with minimal gear and still have that sense of adventure. But in terms of exploration, Google Earth has this world mapped down to the square foot.
  • Cornelia Parker    New York, forever the port of em- and de-barkation en route to Adventure.
  • Cornelia Parker    The main trouble with this civilized world isn't that we adventure too much, but that we fail to adventure enough.
  • Craig Bellamy    The adventure starts when you finish, and I'm looking forward to that.
  • Craig Elliott    A chance is what you take before you think about it. A calculated risk is what you take after you have evaluated all possible factors and have determined that risk.
  • Craig Ferguson    I didn't say no because between safety and adventure I choose adventure.
  • Cush Jumbo    If you don't have a sense of adventure in this job, then you're not going to do very well. You have to be prepared for the unexpected, and that's one of the reasons why you really, really, really have to trust the people you're going to work with because you don't know what's on the other end.
  • Cynthia Rowley    I've been lucky enough to meet a lot of fantastic people, from royalty to rock stars. I've also been known to be a bit of a daredevil, so I've tried to explore extreme travel and adventure - scuba-diving in an arctic glacier and camping in the Himalayas.
  • Cynthia Rowley    I've taken a lot of risks through the years, but I always followed my instincts and always explored new opportunities. The biggest reward has been having an idea and being able to make it a reality. My passions always lead the way - travel and adventure, fitness, art, and home.
  • D. J. MacHale    My life is an ongoing, ever changing adventure.
  • Dale Rex Coman    The charm of a woodland road lies not only in its beauty but in anticipation. Around each bend may be a discovery, an adventure.
  • Dale Turner    People who make no mistakes lack boldness and the spirit of adventure. They are the brakes on the wheels of progress.
  • Dan Buettner    The name of the game is to keep from pushing the accelerator pedal so hard that we speed up the aging process. The average American, however, by living a fast and furious lifestyle, pushes that accelerator too hard and too much.
  • Daniel Boone    In this situation I was constantly exposed to danger and death.
  • Daniel Boone    Most of the memorable events I have myself been exercised in; and, for the satisfaction of the public, will briefly relate the circumstances of my adventures, and scenes of life, from my first movement to this country until this day.
  • Daniel Boone    We were then in a dangerous, helpless situation, exposed daily to perils and death amongst savages and wild beasts, not a white man in the country but ourselves.
  • Daniel Defoe    It is men of desperate fortunes on the one hand, or of aspiring, superior fortunes on the other, who go abroad upon adventures, to rise by enterprise, and make themselves famous in undertakings of a nature out of the common road.
  • Daniel J. Boorstin    The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes 'sight-seeing.'
  • Daniel Norris    It might be unconventional, but to feel good about life I need to have some adventure.
  • Danny Kaye    To travel is to take a journey into yourself.
  • Daphne Oz    More than anything, having adventures with my siblings and spending time with my family and my husband make me happy.
  • Daria Werbowy    Sailing is the closest I can get to nature - it's adrenaline, fear, a constant challenge and learning experience, an adventure into the unknown. And of course there is nothing better than wearing the same T-shirt for days and not brushing my hair for weeks.
  • Dario Argento    My life and career is my own adventure.
  • Dario Argento    You must push everything to the absolute limit, or else life will be boring.
  • David Livingstone    If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don't want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.
  • David Sarnoff    Whatever course you have chosen for yourself, it will not be a chore but an adventure if you bring to it a sense of the glory of striving.
  • Davy Crockett    Be always sure you are right - then go ahead.
  • Davy Crockett    For the information of young hunters, I will just say, in this place, that whenever a fellow gets bad lost, the way home is just the way he don't think it is. This rule will hit nine times out of ten.
  • Dean Potter    I was taking my advance freefall course, doing my level 1 jump. My heart was racing. Like I said, I have a lot of fear with falling, so I panicked. Then I let go of the door of the airplane and kind of panicked the entire way. But after a few jumps I grew more calm, realized what was going on, and I think that was the key. The more calm I got, the more relaxed I was.
  • Deanna Raybourn    Among my favorite half-dozen topics is the field of Victorian female explorers, the intrepid women who packed up their parasols and petticoats and roamed the world in search of adventure. Some were scientists, some artists, some unabashed curiosity-seekers who simply went out to see what they could see.
  • Deepak Chopra    You have to think of your brand as a kind of myth. A myth is a compelling story that is archetypal, if you know the teachings of Carl Jung. It has to have emotional content and all the themes of a great story: mystery, magic, adventure, intrigue, conflicts, contradiction, paradox.
  • Delano Johnson    Lily white petals are at my feet anticipating the moment in which adventure and odyssey meet.
  • Dhani Jones    Doing things out of the ordinary - out of the box - like jumping out of airplanes and landing in cities that you've never been to before, then finding your way through. That's the type of trip that excites me.
  • Diane Ackerman    Adventure is not something you travel to find. It's something you take with you, or you're not going to find it when you arrive.
  • Diane Ackerman    Life is a thing that mutates without warning, not always in enviable ways. All part of the improbable adventure of being alive, of being a brainy biped with giant dreams on a crazy blue planet.
  • Diane Arbus    My favorite thing is to go where I've never been.
  • Dick Rutan    Adventure is the essence of life.
  • Dietrich Mateschitz    When launching a product called an Energy Drink and named Red Bull, a product that stimulates body and mind, it is a short step to the roots where Red Bull came from. We have been doing this for 20 years - now it's called adventure sports, extreme sports, and outdoor sports.
  • Dinesh Karthik    I want to do a few crazy things like skydiving and bungee jumping. I am quite an adventure junkie.
  • Divyanka Tripathi    Not many know that I'm a mountaineer, and my love for adventure will never die.
  • Dolores Cannon    When we have completed all the journeys and adventures through our variety of lives we are supposed to return to the creator with our accumulation of knowledge. It is then absorbed. In this way we are considered cells in the body of God.
  • Doug Liman    I'm really drawn to adventure, and characters being plucked from normal life and sent on extraordinary adventures.
  • Douglas Coupland    Adventure without risk is Disneyland.
  • Dr. Seuss    Why fit in when you were born to stand out?
  • Drew Barrymore    If you don't take risks, you'll have a wasted soul.
  • Drew Houston    Instead of trying to make your life perfect, give yourself the freedom to make it an adventure, and go ever upward.
  • Duncan Ferguson    Climbing is the lazy man's way to enlightenment. It forces you to pay attention, because if you don't, you won't succeed, which is minor - or you may get hurt, which is major. Instead of years of meditation, you have this activity that forces you to relax and monitor your breathing and tread that line between living and dying. When you climb, you always are confronted with the edge. Hey, if it was just like climbing a ladder, we all would have quit a long time ago.
  • E. A. Bucchianeri    Love, like everything else in life, should be a discovery, an adventure, and like most adventures, you don't know you're having one until you're right in the middle of it.
  • E. M. Forster    Railway termini are our gates to the glorious and the unknown. Through them we pass out into adventure and sunshine, to them, alas! we return.
  • E. O. Wilson    That's the way to get young people. Once they see there are wonderful things to hunt for, to rediscover a species that was thought to be extinct or is extremely rare, to be the first to see a nest, to discover a new species unsuspected close to your home - these are things, I think, with a little education and excitement and the right kind of natural history would actually start a movement that makes going back to nature a profitable adventure.
  • E. V. Lucas    One of the most adventurous things left us is to go to bed. For no one can lay a hand on our dreams.
  • Eckhart Tolle    Life is an adventure, it's not a package tour.
  • Ed Paschke    Life is very much about rule breaking, about confrontation. Otherwise history would just stand still. Someone has to come along and break the rules and try for whatever reason to go about things a different way. Even if it is a simple sense of adventure, a sense of exploration. You explore concepts and things that interest you, but you are also exploring inside of yourself.
  • Ed Viesturs    Getting to the top is optional. Getting down is mandatory.
  • Eda LeShan    Excellence in life seems to me to be the way in which each human being makes the most of the adventure of living and becomes most truly and deeply himself, fulfilling his own nature in the context of a good life with other people.
  • Eddie Cibrian    I crave attention and adventure.
  • Edi Gathegi    I am sort of an adventurer. I like to explore new places. I don't get to travel as often as I would like but I love it.
  • Edith Durham    There is a peculiar pleasure in riding out into the unknown. A pleasure which no second journey on the same trail ever affords.
  • Edmund Hillary    Adventuring can be for the ordinary person with ordinary qualities, such as I regard myself.
  • Edmund Hillary    Ever since the morning of May 29, 1953, when Tenzing Norgay and I became the first climbers to step onto the summit of Mount Everest, I've been called a great adventurer.
  • Edmund Hillary    I have discovered that even the mediocre can have adventures and even the fearful can achieve.
  • Edmund Hillary    I think the really good mountaineer is the man with the technical ability of the professional and with the enthusiasm and freshness of approach of the amateur.
  • Edmund Hillary    If I wished to do something, even if I couldn't find anyone who wanted to make the effort with me, I would go out solo climbing. I did find solo climbing very challenging and a little frightening. You knew that you were completely on your own, and you had to overcome all the problems and possible dangers.
  • Edmund Hillary    If you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won't see why we go.
  • Edmund Hillary    I'm sure the feeling of fear, as long as you can take advantage of it and not be rendered useless by it, can make you extend yourself beyond what you would regard as your capacity. If you're afraid, the blood seems to flow freely through the veins, and you really do feel a sense of stimulation.
  • Edmund Hillary    It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.
  • Edmund Hillary    It's not a real adventure when you have to pay for it.
  • Edmund Hillary    Life's a bit like mountaineering - never look down.
  • Edmund Hillary    Many people have been getting too casual about climbing Everest. I forecast a disaster many times.
  • Edmund Hillary    Nobody climbs mountains for scientific reasons. Science is used to raise money for the expeditions, but you really climb for the hell of it.
  • Edmund Hillary    People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things.
  • Edmund Hillary    Take advantage of the years of pioneering efforts. You might find this boring, as the young want to rush head on, as it were.
  • Edmund Hillary    The explorers of the past were great men and we should honour them. But let us not forget that their spirit lives on. It is still not hard to find a man who will adventure for the sake of a dream or one who will search, for the pleasure of searching, not for what he may find.
  • Edmund Hillary    The Sherpas play a very important role in most mountaineering expeditions, and in fact many of them lead along the ridges and up to the summit.
  • Edmund Hillary    The truth is, I'm just a rough old New Zealander who has enjoyed many challenges in his life.
  • Edmund Hillary    There is something about building up a comradeship - that I still believe is the greatest of all feats - and sharing in the dangers with your company of peers. It's the intense effort, the giving of everything you've got. It's really a very pleasant sensation.
  • Edmund Hillary    When I was 50 years old, I actually decided to draw up a list of half a dozen things that I really hadn't done very well, and I was going to make efforts to improve. One of them was skiing, and I really did become a very much better skier.
  • Edmund Hillary    When you go to the mountains, you see them and you admire them. In a sense, they give you a challenge, and you try to express that challenge by climbing them.
  • Edmund Hillary    While on top of Everest, I looked across the valley towards the great peak Makalu and mentally worked out a route about how it could be climbed. It showed me that even though I was standing on top of the world, it wasn't the end of everything. I was still looking beyond to other interesting challenges.
  • Eduardo Risso    When I'm on an adventure, I live with a camera in my hand, and that's what I try to give to the readers inside the space that gives us every chapter of the story.
  • Edward Abbey    A man on foot, on horseback or on a bicycle will see more, feel more, enjoy more in one mile than the motorized tourists can in a hundred miles.
  • Edward Abbey    Climbing K2 or floating the Grand Canyon in an inner tube; there are some things one would rather have done than do.
  • Edward Abbey    May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
  • Edward Abbey    We need wilderness because we are wild animals. Everyone needs a place where he can go to go crazy in peace. For the terror, freedom, and delirium. Because we need brutality and raw adventure, because men and women first learned to love in, under, and all around trees, because we need for every pair of feet and legs about ten leagues of naked nature, crags to leap from, mountains to measure by, deserts to finally die in when the heart fails.
  • Edward Abbey    Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself.
  • Edward Boyden    Life is an adventure - Savor every instant!
  • Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton    My father died shortly after I was twenty-one; and being left well off, and having a taste for travel and adventure, I resigned, for a time, all pursuit of the almighty dollar, and became a desultory wanderer over the face of the earth.
  • Eglantyne Jebb    Relief work does not consist entirely in wearisome appeals ... it has its moments of enchantment, its adventures, its unexpected vistas into new worlds
  • Eleanor Roosevelt    Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively; unless you can choose a challenge instead of competence.
  • Eleanor Roosevelt    The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.
  • Elisabeth Kubler-Ross    There are dreams of love, life, and adventure in all of us. But we are also sadly filled with reasons why we shouldn't try. These reasons seem to protect us, but in truth they imprison us. They hold life at a distance. Life will be over sooner than we think. If we have bikes to ride and people to love, now is the time.
  • Elizabeth Lesser    When you approach spirituality as an adventure of being alive, you start as you would any adventure--with a sense of mystery and not-knowing. Instead of searching for answers that make you feel safe, you set out into the vastness of life and death, with a willingness to continually grow. You open up to the possibility that your ordinary life is an extraordinary adventure, and that your joys and sorrows have meaning. Spiritual practice becomes your rudder, offering direction and insight and discretion as you venture into the unknown.
  • Elizabeth Taylor    I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I'm not afraid to look behind them.
  • Elizabeth Taylor    I'm not afraid. Life is just such an adventure to me.
  • Ella Maillart    Travel can also be the spirit of adventure somewhat tamed, for those who desire to do something they are a bit afraid of.
  • Ellen Glasgow    Life is never what one dreams. It is seldom what one desires, but for the vital spirit and the eager mind, the future will always hold the search for buried treasure and the possibility of high adventure.
  • Emanuel Celler    Roosevelt's humor was broad, his manner friendly. Of wit there was little; of philosophy, none. What did he possess? Intuition, inspiration, love of adventure.
  • Emile Hirsch    I know what wanting and craving adventure feels like, I can really relate to that.
  • Emile Hirsch    The traveling and adventure always lift my spirits soaring with exhilaration.
  • Emilie Loring    Real love, no matter how unworthy the object, is a glorious adventure. It bursts the shackles of selfishness. One's world is bigger, broader; one's sympathies are amazingly more tender. No matter what the result, if you haven't really loved, you haven't really lived.
  • Emily Calandrelli    I've always been in love with the stars and view the cosmos as the ultimate adventure.
  • Emily Dickinson    Experiment has a stimulus which withers its fear.
  • Enric Sala    I dream of diving in two places where I have not been yet. One is Antarctica, because of its crystal clear waters and amazing fauna, in addition to the ice cathedrals. The other is the Arctic, where I'd like to see the northernmost kelp forests.
  • Eoin Colfer    The craft's occupants clutched their armrests, and more than one of them closed their eyes. But not Artemis. He couldn't. There was something morbidly fascinating about flying into an uncharted tunnel at a reckless speed with only a kleptomaniac dwarf's word for what lay at the other end.
  • Erica Fernandes    I feel adventure associations in our country can be the best but somehow are lazy about getting their act together.
  • Erica Jong    And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
  • Ernest Hemingway    It is one thing to be in the proximity of death, to know more or less what she is, and it is quite another thing to seek her.
  • Ernest Hemingway    You have to go out beyond where you have gone before.
  • Ernest Lawrence    Let us cherish the hope that the day is not far distant when we will be in the midst of this next adventure.
  • Ernest Shackleton    Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all.
  • Ernest Shackleton    Now my eyes are turned from the South to the North, and I want to lead one more Expedition. This will be the last... to the North Pole.
  • Ernest Shackleton    Superhuman effort isn't worth a damn unless it achieves results.
  • Ernie Harwell    I look on life as a joyous adventure.
  • Ernie Harwell    It's time to say goodbye, but I think goodbyes are sad and I'd much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure.
  • Erwin McManus    Jesus beckons his followers to a path that's far from the easy road. It's a path filled with adventure, uncertainty, and unlimited possibilities - the only path that can fulfill the deepest longings and desires of your heart.
  • Eugenie Clark    I liked to use my face mask more than the diving helmet for most occasions. I was learning to hold my breath longer now and could go down almost as deep without the helmet which limited my movements.
  • Ezra Taft Benson    Youth is the spirit of adventure and awakening. It is a time of physical emerging when the body attains the vigor and good health that may ignore the caution of temperance. Youth is a period of timelessness when the horizons of age seem too distant to be noticed.
  • Fiona Bruce    I'd set out to Oman in search of luxury with culture and family-friendly adventure thrown in. And I found it.
  • François Lelord    It is love that transports us, that fills us with joy! Love turns life into one long adventure, every encounter is a dazzling experience - well, not always, of course, but in actual fact, it is our less successful love affairs that enable us to appreciate the others. I think love protects us from one of the biggest problems facing the modern world: boredom.
  • Francois Rabelais    He who has not an adventure has not horse or mule, so says Solomon.--Who is too adventurous, said Echephron,--loses horse and mule.
  • Frank Moore Colby    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 continuance?
  • Frederick Lenz    Dharma doesn't necessarily mean following a mundane and boring life. It means a life of high adventure, not a life of endless, boring repetition.
  • Frederick Lenz    In mysticism, there's more of a sense of adventure, of camaraderie.
  • Frederick Lenz    In writing Snowboarding to Nirvana I have intentionally written an inspirational spiritual adventure story, which will hopefully provide people with metaphysical techniques, spiritual knowledge, hope and a brighter view of life.
  • Frederick Lenz    It's an exciting adventure to give those things that you've always held onto.
  • Frederick Lenz    Tantra and adventure are very, very connected. Perhaps the greatest enemy for one who's journeying along the spiritual path is complacency.
  • Frederick Lenz    There are other times. There are other adventures. There are other dreams .
  • Frederick Sanger    It is like a voyage of discovery into unknown lands, seeking not for new territory but for new knowledge. It should appeal to those with a good sense of adventure.
  • Fridtjof Nansen    It is better to go skiing and think of God, than go to church and think of sport.
  • Fridtjof Nansen    Never stop because you are afraid - you are never so likely to be wrong.
  • Fridtjof Nansen    The difficult is what takes a little time; the impossible is what takes a little longer.
  • Friedrich Engels    Only sound common sense, respectable fellow that he is, in the homely realm of his own four walls, has very wonderful adventures directly he ventures out into the wide world of research.
  • Friedrich Nietzsche    The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment from life is to live dangerously.
  • Friedrich Schiller    If we do not find anything very pleasant, at least we shall find something new.
  • Friedrich Schiller    Who dares nothing, need hope for nothing.
  • Fritz Zwicky    Mountains were once my big adventure but is is over since a long time; I still dream from the wonderful days sometimes, read also a few pages from a mountain book.
  • Gary Gygax    There's a call to adventure. It's something in the inner psyche of humanity, particularly males.
  • Gary Jobson    Let Beth Leonard inspire you to sail around the world, explore the high latitudes, or discover your own capacity for adventure. Each nugget in this 'dream becomes reality' series of revelations is worth a thousand pictures.
  • Gary Snyder    Walking is the great adventure, the first meditation, a practice of heartiness and soul primary to humankind. Walking is the exact balance beween spirit and humility.
  • Gene Hackman    I left home when I was 16 because I was looking for adventure.
  • George Eliot    Adventure is not outside man; it is within.
  • George Foreman    I get up in the morning looking for an adventure.
  • George Leigh Mallory    So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won’t see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for.
  • George Leigh Mallory    What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money.
  • Gertrude Stein    Adventure is making the distant approach nearer but romance is having what is where it is which is not where you are stay where it is.
  • Gilbert K. Chesterton    Adventure is the champagne of life, but I prefer my champagne and my adventures dry.
  • Gilbert K. Chesterton    An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.
  • Gilbert K. Chesterton    The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land.
  • Ginger Zee    I love the challenge of any adventure.
  • Grace Hopper    A ship in port is safe, but that's not what ships are built for.
  • Guy Laliberte    Life is full of adventure. There's no such thing as a clear pathway.
  • Guy Laliberte    Sometimes just being on a beach with my loved ones is all the adventure I need. I am a happy camper and continue to be a citizen of the world. I have yet to discover other cultures, other peoples dreams and treasures. I will always be a traveler who is discovering beautiful Gaia.
  • H. Jackson Brown, Jr.    Every so often, let your spirit of adventure triumph over your good sense.
  • H. Jackson Brown, Jr.    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.
  • H. L. Mencken    The truth is that the scientific value of Polar exploration is greatly exaggerated. The thing that takes men on such hazardous trips is really not any thirst for knowledge, but simply a yearning for adventure. ... A Polar explorer always talks grandly of sacrificing his fingers and toes to science. It is an amiable pretention, but there is no need to take it seriously.
  • H. Rider Haggard    Adventurer: he that goes to meet whatever may come. Well, that is what we all do in the world one way or another.
  • Hal Hartley    There's no such thing as adventure. There's no such thing as romance. There's only trouble and desire.
  • Hans Christian Andersen    To travel is to live.
  • Hanshan    The higher the trail the steeper it grows Ten thousand tiers of dangerous cliffs The stone bridge is slippery with green moss Cloud after cloud keeps flying by Waterfalls hang like ribbons of silk The moon shines down on the bright pool I climb the highest peak once more To wait where the lone crane flies
  • Haris Pasovic    We need the daring visions… We adventure together, we journey through the mindful and emotional landscapes, we create together an event, unique and unrepeatable.
  • Harry Johnston    Nova Scotia as a British colony also came into being as another result of these adventurous British expeditions to North America in the reign of James I.
  • Hayley Hasselhoff    Everyone loves good looks, but personality is what sells for me. I want someone to have fun and go on adventures with. I do like guys with tattoos, though.
  • Helen Keller    It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal.
  • Helen Keller    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.
  • Helen Mirren    I still have a Gypsy sense of adventure. I don't think I have slept in the same bed for more than three or four months my whole life. I am always planting vegetables that I never get to eat and flowers that I never see flower. I have always moved around the world.
  • Henry A. Wallace    If we put our trust in the common sense of common men and 'with malice toward none and charity for all' go forward on the great adventure of making political, economic and social democracy a practical reality, we shall not fail.
  • Henry Beston    Learn to reverence night and to put away the vulgar fear of it, for, with the banishment of night from the experience of man, there vanishes as well a religious emotion, a poetic mood, which gives depth to the adventure of humanity.
  • Henry David Thoreau    Half the walk is but retracing our steps. We should go forth on the shortest walk, perchance, in the spirit of undying adventure, never to return-prepared to send beck our embalmed hearts only as relics to our desolate kingdoms. If you are ready to leave father and mother, brother and sister, and wife and child and friends and never see them again,-if you have paid your debts and made your will, and settled your affairs and are a free man, then you are ready for a walk.
  • Henry David Thoreau    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
  • Henry David Thoreau    Rise free from care before the dawn and seek adventure. Let the noon find you by other lakes, and the night overtake thee everywhere at home. There are no larger fields than these, no worthier games than may here be played.
  • Henry David Thoreau    We need the tonic of the wilderness, to wade sometimes in the marsh where the bitten and the meadow hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground.
  • Henry David Thoreau    We should come home from adventures, and perils, and discoveries every day with new experience and character.
  • Henry David Thoreau    When the first light dawned on the earth, and the birds awoke, and the brave river was heard rippling confidently seaward, and the nimble early rising wind rustled the oak leaves about our tent, all people, having reinforced their bodies and their souls with sleep, and cast aside doubt and fear, were invited to unattempted adventures.
  • Henry Hudson    A sea setting us upon the ice has brought us close to danger.
  • Henry Hudson    This land may be profitable to those that will adventure it.
  • Henry Rollins    For me, I see no courage or adventure in doing the old thing over again. If others want to, that's for them. For myself, I have to move on. Life is too short to live in the past. There is a lot to be done.
  • Herbert Hoover    New discoveries in science and their flow of new inventions will continue to create a thousand new frontiers for those who still would adventure.
  • Herbert Otto Gille    We are all functioning at a small fraction of our capacity to live fully in its total meaning of loving, caring, creating and adventuring. Consequently, the actualizing of our potential can become the most exciting adventure of our lifetime.
  • Herbie Hancock    I think risk-taking is a great adventure. And life should be full of adventures.
  • Herman Melville    As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.
  • Herman Melville    I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.
  • Herman Melville    It is not down in any map; true places never are.
  • Homer    For when two Join in the same adventure, one perceives Before the other how they ought to act; While one alone, however prompt, resolves More tardily and with a weaker will.
  • Hudson Stuck    Walter, who had been in the lead all day, was the first to scramble up; a native Alaskan, he is the first human being to set foot upon the top of Alaska's great mountain, and he had well earned the lifelong distinction.
  • Hudson Stuck    We took a straight course up the great snow ridge.
  • Hugh Shelton    I jumped out of perfectly good airplanes and it's a great thrill, and it allows me to share in the dangers that the great men - our great men and women in uniform share in on a regular basis.
  • Hunter S. Thompson    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
  • Ian Hacking    Much early alchemy seems to have been adventure. You heated and mixed and burnt and pounded and to see what would happen. An adventure might suggest an hypothesis that can subsequently be tested, but adventure is prior to theory.
  • Ian Somerhalder    You want a love that consumes you, you want passion and adventure and even a little danger.
  • Ibn Battuta    Traveling - it offers you a hundred roads to adventure, and gives your heart wings!
  • India.Arie    Every mountain needs someone to climb it, Every ocean needs someone to dive in, Every dream needs someone to wish it, Every adventure needs someone to live it.
  • Irving Wallace    Every man can transform the world from one of monotony and drabness to one of excitement and adventure.
  • Isabelle Eberhardt    I am not afraid of death, but would not want to die in some obscure or pointless way.
  • Isak Dinesen    You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions.
  • J. K. Rowling    Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.
  • J. R. R. Tolkien    I'm looking for someone to share in an adventure.
  • J. R. R. Tolkien    It simply isn't an adventure worth telling if there aren't any dragons.
  • J. R. R. Tolkien    It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.
  • J. R. R. Tolkien    The greatest adventure is what lies ahead
  • Jack Canfield    Each day is an adventure in discovering the meaning of life.
  • Jack Canfield    The biggest rewards in life are found outside your comfort zone. Live with it. Fear and risk are prerequisites if you want to enjoy a life of success and adventure.
  • Jack Kerouac    Because in the end, you won't remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain
  • Jack Kerouac    Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don't be sorry.
  • Jack Kerouac    What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-by. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.
  • Jack London    I remembered my days and nights of sunshine and starshine, where life was all a wild sweet wonder, a spiritual paradise of unselfish adventure and ethical romance. And I saw before me, ever blazing and burning, the Holy Grail.
  • Jack Williamson    That was quite an adventure, stopping at a different house each night, seeing new country,.
  • Jackie Kennedy    Being a journalist seemed the ideal way of both having a job and experiencing the world, especially for anyone with a sense of adventure.
  • Jacqueline Cochran    I have found adventure in flying, in world travel, in business, and even close at hand... Adventure is a state of mind and spirit.
  • Jacqueline Novogratz    I think I still have a great sense of adventure and trust, and am surprisingly idealistic given all the horrible things I've seen since I was 25. I think how I have changed is that I have a much deeper understanding of the dark forces in the world, of power.
  • Jacques Yves Cousteau    Buoyed by water, he can fly in any direction - up, down, sideways - by merely flipping his hand. Under water, man becomes an archangel.
  • Jacques Yves Cousteau    The reason I love the sea I cannot explain - it's physical. When you dive you begin to feel like an angel. It's a liberation of your weight.
  • Jamake Highwater    What outsiders discover in their adventures on the other side of the looking glass is the courage to repudiate self-contempt and recognise their “alienation” as a precious gift of freedom from arbitrary norms that they did not make and did not sanction. At the moment a person questions the validity of the rules, the victim is no longer a victim.
  • James A. Michener    We risk great peril if we kill off this spirit of adventure, for we cannot predict how and in what seemingly unrelated fields it will manifest itself. A nation that loses its forward thrust is in danger, and one of the most effective ways to retain that thrust is to keep exploring possibilities. The sense of exploration is intimately bound up with human resolve, and for a nation to believe that it is still committed to a forward motion is to ensure its continuance.
  • James Alan Gardner    Fate does not invite ugly boring people to save the world; and if you do try to save the world (without being beautiful, strong, clever, or wise), you will soon die pointlessly and how much adventure is there in that?
  • James Alan Gardner    Having a perilous adventure is always better than comatose safety. Always, always, always, always, always.
  • James Arness    We had a great childhood and boyhood. It was a wonderful time through those years. A lot of it was through the Depression years, when things were tough, but my dad always had a job. But I had a great time. I was kind of restless, and I had a hard time staying in school all day, so me and a few pals would duck out and go out on these various adventures.
  • James Arthur Ray    The Warrior lives a life full of adventure, living on the edge of opportunity. Life on the edge keeps him in a space of heightened awareness and totally in the moment; therefore no matter what comes his way he is always prepared.
  • James Broughton    Life is adventure, not predicament.
  • James Cook    Ambition leads me not only farther than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it possible for man to go.
  • James Cook    Do just once what others say you can't do, and you will never pay attention to their limitations again.
  • James Cromwell    The last part of life is a spiritual concern. You need to find a context to put your life into, that will allow you to go through it with as much grace and balance as possible, even if there is rebellion and adventure and exploration and resistance.
  • James J. Hill    Most men who have really lived have had, in some share, their great adventure. This railway is mine.
  • James Oliver Curwood    Before the railroad's thin lines of steel bit their way up through the wilderness, Athabasca Landing was the picturesque threshold over which one must step who would enter into the mystery and adventure of the great white North.
  • James Tate    William Waltz will take me through 'the buzz and clamor in a forest of hearts.' Adventures in the Lost Interiors of America is an adventure, I will go on this adventure with Waltz as a skillful, faithful, compass-true guide.
  • Jan Struther    Punctuality is the thief of adventure.
  • Jane Austen    If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad.
  • Jaron Lanier    America's Facebook generation shows a submission to standardization that I haven't seen before. The American adventure has always been about people forgetting their former selves - Samuel Clemens became Mark Twain, Jack Kerouac went on the road. If they had a Facebook page, they wouldn't have been able to forget their former selves.
  • Jason Isbell    It occurred to me the thing that broke my heart the most was when I grew up and realized everything wasn't an adventure. I got to a certain age and realized I couldn't be Indiana Jones.
  • Jason Mraz    Here’s to freedom, cheers to art. Here’s to having an excellent adventure and may the stopping never start.
  • Jawaharlal Nehru    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.
  • Jean Batten    Every flyer who ventures across oceans to distant lands is a potential explorer; in his or her breast burns the same fire that urged adventurers of old to set forth in their sailing-ships for foreign lands.
  • Jean-Paul Sartre    For an occurrence to become an adventure, it is necessary and sufficient for one to recount it.
  • Jean-Paul Sartre    What the painter adds to the canvas are the days of his life. The adventure of living, hurtling toward death.
  • Jed Diamond    See yourself as a pioneer in a new world. We are not facing the end of the world, as some would have us believe, but the greatest adventure of our lives. We have the unique opportunity to write a new chapter in the history of humankind, to be active participants in shaping a new world.
  • Jeff Belanger    Ghostly legends dot the Prairie State from its big cities to its small towns. These stories make each community unique in a way that no other landmark ever could... Haunting Illinois is more than just a ghostly travel guide, it’s an adventure offering new insight on the haunts you know, but also takes you on a trip to the spirits in your own backyard.
  • Jeff Probst    The adventure you're ready for is the one you get!
  • Jennifer Pharr Davis    Going into the woods, you can go as fast or as slow as you want. It's restorative. Even when I was young, the wilderness offered not only adventure but also therapy and peace: a place to be alone with your thoughts.
  • Jeremy Miller    For about two years, I was a little wild. I was out partying, having adventures.
  • Jerrie Cobb    I have this feeling that life is a spiritual adventure, and I want to make mine in the sky.
  • Jesse Itzler    My life is ready, fire, aim, and it is one of adventure.
  • Jesse Ventura    I've jumped out of an airplane 34 times. I've dove 212 feet under water. I've done a lot of things that defied death.
  • Jessica Cox    If you would've asked me about getting a pilot's license before 2005, I'd say you were crazy. After I graduated college, a fighter pilot asked me if I wanted to go up on a flight in a single-engine plane. I always had a fear about being in an airplane, but I took this opportunity to go up on my first flight in a single-engine rather than a big commercial plane I was accustomed to. I was hooked and made a commitment to become a pilot. I wanted to motivate others to not let fear stand in the way of their opportunities.
  • Jessica Watson    For me... it was always about the challenge of making this voyage... It was always a calculated risk, but life is a risk.
  • Jill Hennessy    I like someone who embraces life; who wants to be on a long journey but has no particular plan or destination in mind. An adventurous man, open to the concept of living life in the moment.
  • Jim Banks    There was purity and there was the dream, and the adventure, and there was the counterculture aspect. It was like shove society, shove the nine to five, shove the rules ... we're just going to follow our hearts, treat each other well, eat well, and enjoy the ocean. It was not for money and it wasn't for fame ... that's what we're gonna do ... purely because that's what our hearts want to do. That was amazing.
  • Jim Dale    I'm still a kid inside, and adventure is adventure wherever you find it.
  • Jim Elliot    Domesticated males aren't much use for adventure.
  • Jim Rohn    If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.
  • Jim Ross    There's always another adventure if you keep your head above water and I don't have any desire to slow down because it keeps you young.
  • Jim Toomey    I'm a big diver. I like to dive when I travel, and my last dive was in the Galapagos. I used to live in San Francisco and I would dive all the time in Monterey.
  • Jimmy Chin    I've always been interested in working with top athletes, athletes who are pushing the edge and are really progressive in the outdoor space and adventure world.
  • Joaquin Miller    He gained a world; he gave that world Its grandest lesson: "On! sail on!"
  • Jocelyn Wildenstein    Africa is a paradise. You meet people who look at life differently. They love the adventure.
  • Joe Rohde    It's an adventure. I mean I spent a lot of time in the Himalayas and over the years have come to know them very well. I would say most important is the first sense you have in a place like that, and that is the sense of being on an adventure.
  • Joe Rohde    We go to the mountain for enlightenment, for self-realization, for adventure, for discovery. It's pregnant with meaning. When people see a mountain, they invest it with meaning. Not plot. Not character.
  • Joey Ramone    I've done a lot of living and a lot of adventuring and I think that's very healthy, ya know. And I think everybody should adventure life 'cos that's what life is, it's for adventuring. You gotta know what you wanna do with your life. And you gotta know when you have something special and you don't wanna blow it.
  • Johann Kaspar Lavater    Who recollects distinctly his past adventures, knows his destiny to come.
  • Johann Wolfgang von Goethe    Plunge boldly into the thick of life, and seize it where you will, it is always interesting.
  • Johann Wolfgang von Goethe    The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive.
  • John Berryman    We must travel in the direction of our fear.
  • John Claypool    We must never forget that today's legendary achievements-awesome as they may seem-were yesterday's risky adventures. Courage is not the capacity never to be afraid; as Karl Barth reminds us, "Courage is fear that has said its prayers."
  • John D. Rockefeller    If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
  • John Eldredge    A woman wants to be romanced. She wants to be an essential part of a great adventure; she wants a beauty to unveil. That is what little girls play at, and those are the movies women love and the stories that they love.
  • John Eldredge    Adventure, with all its requisite danger and wildness, is a deeply spiritual longing written into the soul of man.
  • John Eldredge    Eve is a life giver; she is Adam's ally. It is to both of them that the charter for adventure is given. It will take both of them to sustain life. And they will both need to fight together.
  • John Eldredge    Men want a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue. That is what is written in their hearts. That is what little boys play at. That is what men's movies are about. You just see it. It is undeniable.
  • John Eldredge    Truth be told, most of us are faking our way through life. We pick only those battles we are sure to win, only those adventures we are sure to handle, only those beauties we are sure to rescue.
  • John Eldredge    We are created for adventure, and if we cannot find one, we start blowing things out of proportion so it feels like we have one.
  • John F. Kennedy    But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask; why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?
  • John F. Kennedy    The exploration of space will go ahead, whether we join in it or not, and it is one of the great adventures of all time, and no nation which expects to be the leader of other nations can expect to stay behind in this race for space.
  • John Glenn    When the new becomes commonplace, people become accustomed to it. That's a tribute to our sense of adventure.
  • John Grierson    We have built our State on the freedom of personal adventure.
  • John M. Grunsfeld    I don't particularly want to jump out of an airplane with a parachute if I don't have to. I don't want to go bungee jumping. I like adventure with a real purpose that I can buy into.
  • John Mayer    I am tempted to keep the car in drive, And leave it all behind...
  • John Muir    Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.
  • John Muir    Few places in this world are more dangerous than home. Fear not, therefore, to try the mountain passes. They will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action.
  • John Muir    How many hearts with warm, red blood in them are beating under cover of the woods, and how many teeth and eyes are shining? A multitude of animal people, intimately related to us, but of whose lives we know almost nothing, are as busy about their own affairs as we are about ours.
  • John Muir    In all my wild mountaineering, I have enjoyed only one avalanche ride; and the start was so sudden, and the end came so soon, I thought but little of the danger that goes with this sort of travel, though one thinks fast at such times.
  • John Muir    Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.
  • John Muir    Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.
  • John Muir    To the lover of pure wildness Alaska is one of the most wonderful countries in the world.
  • John Phillips    It's been a great adventure, everything I hoped for. But it's time to go home. I miss my family. I miss the Earth.
  • John Taylor Gatto    You need experience, adventure, and explorations more than you need algebra!
  • John Travolta    The only thing I ran into is that I am a wanderlust, as far as travel and adventure. I will go off on any given moment with the family and friends to explore the world. I go around the world once a year. I go to Africa, you know, Russia, wherever... I love it.
  • John Updike    Dreams come true; without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.
  • John Wesley Powell    You cannot see the Grand Canyon in one view, as if it were a changeless spectacle from which a curtain might be lifted, but to see it, you have to toil from month to month through its labyrinths.
  • Jonny Kim    I didn't like the person I was growing up to become. I needed to find myself and my identity. And for me, getting out of my comfort zone, getting away from the people I grew up with, and finding adventure, that was my odyssey, and it was the best decision I ever made.
  • Jose Bergamin    The thirst for adventure is the vent which Destiny offers; a war, a crusade, a gold mine, a new country, speak to the imagination and offer.
  • Josef von Sternberg    Every light has a point where it is brightest and a point toward which it wanders to lose itself completely. It must be intercepted to fulfill its mission; it cannot function in a void. Light can go straight, penetrate and turn back, be reflected and deflected, gathered and spread, bent as by a soap bubble, made to sparkle and be blocked. Where it is no more is blackness, and where it begins is the core of its brightness. The journey of rays from that central core to the outposts of blackness is the adventure and drama of light.
  • Joseph B. Wirthlin    Every day is an adventure.
  • Joseph Campbell    Furthermore, we have not even to risk the adventure alone; for the heroes of all time have gone before us; the labyrinth is thoroughly known; we have only to follow the thread of the hero-path. And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; and where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.
  • Joseph Campbell    Questing... is not an ego trip; it is an adventure to bring into fulfillment your gift to the world, which is yourself.
  • Joseph Campbell    The adventure evoked a quality of his character that he didn't know he possessed.
  • Joseph Campbell    The call to adventure signifies that destiny has summoned the hero.
  • Joseph Campbell    The conquest of fear yields the courage of life. That is the cardinal initiation of every heroic adventure-- fearlessness and achievement.
  • Joseph Campbell    Thinking in mythological terms helps to put you in accord with the inevitables of this vale of tears. You learn to recognize the positive values in what appear to be the negative moments and aspects of your life. The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure.
  • Joseph Campbell    What I think is that a good life is one hero journey after another. Over and over again, you are called to the realm of adventure, you are called to new horizons. Each time, there is the same problem: do I dare? And then if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, and the fulfillment or the fiasco. There's always the possibility of fiasco. But there's also the possibility of bliss.
  • Joseph Wood Krutch    We have not merely escaped from something but into something... We have joined the greatest of all communities, which is not that of man alone but of everything which shares with us the great adventure of being alive.
  • Josh Gates    In flight...entire days can be wound back or skipped over...as we exist merely in a world of vapor. Adventures are both beginning and coming to a close up here as people from opposite ends of experience paradoxically move in one direction.
  • Josh Gates    The magnificent thing about her [Amelia Earhart] is, in the eyes of the world, she simply never died. Her fear never witnessed, her failure never recorded, her shiny twin-engine Electra never recovered. Earhart's legacy of inspiration is amplified because her adventure is perpetual. We don't think of her as dead; we think of her as missing. She is forever flying, somewhere beyond Lae, over that limitless blue horizon.
  • Joshua Slocum    And now, without having wearied my friends, I hope, with detailed scientific accounts, theories, or deductions, I will only say that I have endeavoured to tell just the story of the adventure itself.
  • Joshua Slocum    To be taken into account were some years of schooling, where I studied with diligence Neptune's laws, and these laws I tried to obey when I sailed overseas; it was worth the while.
  • Juergen Teller    I want adventure in my life. I want to do things I haven't done before. These Hollywood people are so careful of their image and looking right, but there's a wildness when I come into the photographs. I just want to wade through rivers, climb mountains.
  • Julia Child    The war broke out, and I wanted to do something to aid my country in a time of crisis... and set out into the world looking for adventure.
  • Julia Sawalha    I want to be in 'The Hobbit.' I love fantasy and mythical adventure films. I believe in fairies and angels. I believe in nature's spirit, that there are other realms, other planets, life forms.
  • Julian Jaynes    Consciousness is always open to many possibilities because it involves play. It is always an adventure.
  • Juliette Binoche    What I love most about this crazy life is the adventure of it.
  • Justine Musk    You have to have a spirit of courage and adventure, or else you're going to find it tough to get up in the morning sometimes.
  • Kajal Aggarwal    I love adventure sports. And, I love cooking.
  • Karen Elizabeth Gordon    We all ended up somewhere with our various uncertain lives flapping about us in tatters and our pockets full of foreign coins.
  • Kate Douglas Wiggin    There are some who possess the magic touch, the infectious spirit of enthusiasm; who have the same effect as a beautiful morning that never reaches noon. Under this spell one's mind is braced, one's spirit recreated; one is ready for any adventure, even if it only be the doing of the next distasteful task light-heartedly.
  • Katharine Hepburn    If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.
  • Katherine Cecil Thurston    The most splendid moment of an adventure is not always the moment of fulfilment, not even the moment of conception, but the moment of first accomplishment, when the adventurer deliberately sets his face toward the new road, knowing that his boats are burned.
  • Kathleen Hanna    I don't want to waste the precious moments I have, and I've felt that way since I was 17. I have to take risks because why else would you be alive? Put your pirate patch on and go on an adventure because you only have one life to live.
  • Kathy Ireland    I would say my sense of adventure outweighs my grace.
  • Katy Tur    The expat life was a good one: There was my French boyfriend. My bright two-bedroom flat in Islington. My wine at lunch. I had a 'go bag' packed with loose linens and mosquito repellent - I was ready to be flung to the outer edges of the world at a moment's notice. It was all intrigue and adventure.
  • Kellan Lutz    I lived in a tiny Midwest town, so I was always looking for adventure.
  • Kenneth Kamler    The basic thing with adventure medicine or extreme medicine is that you are going to places where humans don't belong and people will certainly get into trouble.
  • Kid Cudi    I just wanna go on more adventures. Be around good energy. Connect with people. Learn new things. Grow.
  • Konnie Huq    It's an adventure that you have to make the kids believe they want to join in. There are no marks for being a scaredy-cat.
  • Kristen Stewart    I like women who have an opinion one way or the other or who have a great sense of humor and a great sense of adventure. I can be friends with women who are not like that, but I don't have that hard emotional connection.
  • Kristine Carlson    Part of the adventure in life is not always knowing what's going to happen next, and the next part may be grander than your original plan. The key to enjoying the journey is being open to the unknown.
  • Kristine Carlson    The reflective person opens up her inner world and embarks on the greatest adventure that life has to offer – getting to know and understand oneself.
  • Kylie Bunbury    I would love to do something that takes me on an adventure. I really want to do it all.
  • L. Ron Hubbard    Adventure, I well know, is in the heart, not in the view.
  • L. Ron Hubbard    For nearly a quarter of a century, I have been engaged in the investigation of the fundamentals of life, the material universe and human behavior. Such an adventure leads one down many highways, through many byroads, into many back alleys of uncertainty, through many strata of life...
  • L. Ron Hubbard    I have all the world around me. My walls are 180 East Longitude and 90 North and 90 South Latitude.... Adventure is my guidon.
  • Lady Randolph Churchill    We owe something to extravagance, for thrift and adventure seldom go hand in hand.
  • Laird Hamilton    I don't want to not live because of my fear of what could happen.
  • Lake Bell    While marriage is historically associated with dire obligation and clipped wings, I've found that it actually liberates you to take on adventure and achieve your dreams. I like to call my husband 'my person.' Find your 'person,' and you can do anything!
  • Laozi    A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.
  • Laura Miller    Adventure ... is what might otherwise be called hardship if it were attempted in a different spirit.
  • Laurence J. Peter    You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Don't let yourself indulge in vain wishes.
  • Laurence Sterne    Chance is the providence of adventurers.
  • Laurence Sterne    What a large volume of adventures may be grasped within this little span of life by him who interests his heart in every thing, and who, having eyes to see, what time and chance are perpetually holding out to him as he journeyeth on his way, misses nothing he can fairly lay his hands on.
  • Lawren Harris    Art is the distillate of life, the winnowed result of the experience of a people, the record of the joyous adventure of the creative spirit in us toward a higher world; a world in which all ideas, thoughts, and forms are pure and beautiful and completely clear, the world Plato held to be perfect and eternal. All works that have in them an element of joy are records of this adventure.
  • Lawrence Millman    Travel is the realm of the impossible adventures, the quick fix, the ship passing in the night. It entitles you to meet interesting people, whom you would never meet, even if you laid traps or advertised for them. Not only do you met them, but you also unmeet them, all in the space of, it often seems, a mere compacted evening. As there is so little time, bodies in motion drop their guard and immediately get on with their stories. Then the proverbial ships part, each to its destination, never again to brush each other's wake.
  • Lee Kuan Yew    For the young, let me tell you the sky has turned brighter. There's a glorious rainbow that beckons those with the spirit of adventure. And there are rich findings at the end of the rainbow. To the young and to the not-so-old, I say, look at that horizon, follow that rainbow, go ride it.
  • Leila Janah    I love adventure. When I'm not working or on the road, you can find me in my favorite spots around the Mission neighborhood of S.F., kitesurfing in the Bay or dancing.
  • Leonard Nimoy    I think it's my adventure, my trip, my journey, and I guess my attitude is, let the chips fall where they may.
  • Lesley Hazleton    We need many more intrepid women who set out to expand both their and our concepts of the world. We need them in writing just as we need them in politics. We need that sense of adventure, of reaching wider, delving deeper, pushing further afield, whether that field be geographical, intellectual, political, personal, or all of these and more. Enough with decorousness. Let us risk preconceptions and treasured philosophies, bodies and souls. Let us be big and bawdy and full of courage. Let's go.
  • Leslie Charteris    For there is a price ticket on everything that puts a whizz into life, and adventure follows the rule. It's distressing, but there you are.
  • Lewis Carroll    If you don't know where you're going any road will do.
  • Lewis Carroll    No, no! The adventures first, explanations take such a dreadful time.
  • Lewis Clarke    I've been through the entire list of Polar problems. I knew it would be hard, but it's harder than I ever thought it would be. I've suffered from blisters, a high-altitude cough, frost nip, and I even managed to break a ski they told me was unbreakable.
  • Lewis Thomas    Very few recognize science as the high adventure it really is, the wildest of all explorations ever taken by human beings, the chance to glimpse things never seen before, the shrewdest maneuver for discovering how the world works.
  • Lily Aldridge    To me, Wonderlust is all about living life with a sense of adventure.
  • Lincoln Ellsworth    Not until, years later, I found my true interest in life did I discover that I could master a subject, no matter how difficult, if it helped me in what I wanted to do.
  • Lincoln Ellsworth    One of the things that made me persist in the Antarctic in the face of sickening discouragements was my determination to name a portion of the earth's surface after my father.
  • Lincoln Hall    As climbers, we need to sacrifice our comfort, our safety, and arguably our sanity, as a tithe to the mountain...We need the mountains but the mountains do not need us.
  • Lincoln Hall    Climbing had captured my soul.
  • Lincoln Hall    The mountain is a mirror, where climbers look to find themselves. They discover their frailty, take heart from their strengths, drink deep of the insights.
  • Lindsey Stirling    I was told by so many people that I wouldn't succeed because I was too different. Ironically, the very reason that people watch my channel and travel thousands of miles to see a show... is because it's different. God didn't send us to Earth to just blend in. We are here to share what makes us unique.
  • Linus Roache    It seems to me that whatever path you choose to take, in the end its up to each of us to try, test and live what we find out, to apply it and see what actually works, and that's the exciting and challenging part of this very real adventure.
  • Lisa Morgan    The bizarre trend in mountaineers is not the risk they take, but the large degree to which they value life. They are not crazy because they don't dare, they're crazy because they do. These people tend to enjoy life to the fullest, laugh the hardest, travel the most, and work the least.
  • Lloyd Alexander    I decided that adventure was the best way to learn about writing.
  • Louis L'Amour    What people speak of as adventure is something nobody in his right mind would seek out, and it becomes romantic only when one is safely at home.
  • Louis Theroux    There's obviously a lot of controversy around the issue of hunting as there is around gambling, and I like these stories where there is a moral dimension, stories that force you to think about your prejudices about a subject and explore the extent to which they are justified.
  • Louisa May Alcott    I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.
  • Louisa May Alcott    I turn my adventures into bread and butter.
  • Louise Erdrich    What men call adventures usually consist of the stoical endurance of appalling daily misery.
  • Luci Swindoll    Adventure is an attitude, not a behavior.
  • Lucy Lawless    We live at the edge of the world, so we live on the edge. Kiwis will always sacrifice money and security for adventure and challenge.
  • Ludovico Einaudi    I always get excited by the idea of adventure, of doing something different.
  • Luke Davies    I've somehow managed to live my life as I had long ago dreamt of doing, based on the Tintin paradigm: on my toes, travelling, senses attentuated, everything just adventure and exploration, curiosity and problem-solving.
  • M. Scott Peck    Going into the unknown is invariably frightening, but we learn what is significantly new only through adventures.
  • Mac Anderson    Passion--it's the driving force that you just can't ignore. It's what will make your new adventure seem more like fun, than work.
  • MacKenzie Scott    To me, watching your spouse, somebody that you love, have an adventure - what is better than that?
  • Madeline Stuart    I am just a girl chasing her dreams and having an amazing adventure.
  • Madonna Ciccone    I am not reinventing myself. I am going through the layers and revealing myself. I am on a journey, an adventure that's constantly changing shape.
  • Marc Garneau    I like adventure.
  • Marcel Proust    The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
  • Margaret Morse Nice    The study of nature is a limitless field, the most fascinating adventure in the world.
  • Maria Brink    I'm a Sagittarius and I love adventure and new beginnings, new experiences, because it makes me feel like I'm living.
  • Marie Curie    If I see anything vital around me, it is precisely that spirit of adventure, which seems indestructible and is akin to curiosity.
  • Marie Curie    We should not allow it to be believed that all scientific progress can be reduced to mechanisms, machines, gearings, even though such machinery also has its beauty. Neither do I believe that the spirit of adventure runs any risk of disappearing in our world.
  • Marilyn French    Even disasters -- there are always disasters when you travel -- can be turned into adventures.
  • Mark Batterson    Sure, you can choose the safety and predictability of the cage, forfeiting the adventure God has destined for you. But you won't be the only one missing out or losing out. When you lack the courage to chase the Wild Goose, the opportunity costs are staggering. Who might not hear about the love of God if you don't seize the opportunity to tell them? Who might be stuck in poverty, stuck in ignorance, stuck in pain if you're not there to help free them? Where might the advance of God's kingdom in the world stall out because you weren't there on the front lines?
  • Mark Burnett    I've always liked adventure television. Pre-'Survivor,' I did a series on cable called 'Eco-Challenge,' an adventure race with experts mainly, and here we have 'Expedition Impossible.' I like the outdoors and I like doing something fresh for television you haven't seen before.
  • Mark Burnett    So many people wanted an adventure. It was really more about finding the cast that I wanted for 'Expedition Impossible,' so it had good diversity, and people could really say, 'Oh, there's the firefighters, there's the team of cops, there's the grandpa' - so that you can really relate with them.
  • Mark Jenkins    Adventure is a path. Real adventure - self-determined, self-motivated, often risky - forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind - and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.
  • Mark Twain    A person with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds.
  • Mark Twain    Courage is not the absence of fear, but the mastery of it.
  • Mark Twain    Do you reckon Tom Sawyer was satisfied after all them adventures?
  • Martin Buber    All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.
  • Martin Dugard    Running has taken me on adventures great and small, at home and around the world. It has provided me with hope and perseverance on days when I had none-and even, once every great while, warmed me with that fleeting ray of sunshine known as glory. Running has taught me that I can do anything, just so long as I keep putting one foot in front of the other. Sometimes that notion is metaphorical and sometimes not. In this way, I have been inspired to attempt things I would have never dreamed possible. And it all started with a single step.
  • Mary Anne Radmacher    As you awaken, may your dreams greet you by name, and may you answer, "Yes!"
  • Mary Anne Radmacher    I am not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.
  • Mary Anne Radmacher    It is not the easy or convenient life for which I search, but life lived to the edge of all that I may be.
  • Mary Anne Radmacher    Life is defined more by its contrasts than its samenesses; Life is defined more by its risks than the many securities.
  • Mary Anne Radmacher    "The jump is so frightening between where I am and where I want to be. Because of all I may become, I will close my eyes and leap."
  • Mary Anne Radmacher    Your responsibility is to be an explorer, not a tourist in this adventure that is your life.
  • Mary Chapin Carpenter    When I was young I spoke like a child I saw with a child's eyes And an open door was to a girl Like the stars are to the sky It's funny how the world lives up to All your expectations With adventures for the stout of heart And the lure of the open spaces There's two lanes running down this road And whichever side you're on Accounts for where you want to go Or what you're running from Back when darkness overtook me On a blind man's curve I relied upon the moon and Saint Christopher
  • Mary Frann    I like a man who has a great curiosity and sense of adventure because that's the way I am. He has to have a willingness to be vulnerable and a willingness to see where the road takes us. And I want a man who is romantic.
  • Mary Gaitskill    I had really wanted adventure. At the time that I ran away, lots of kids ran away from home. It was something of a social phenomenon.
  • Mason Cooley    Falling in love is the right adventure for those who dislike sports and travel.
  • Matt Bors    I have but one life to give to adventure... Life is a fatal adventure. It can only have one end. So why not make it as far-ranging and free as possible.
  • Matt Skiba    The extent of my personal BMX adventures were all [on] dirt tracks. But just the aesthetic of it that early-to-mid-'80s BMX is something that's just part of me.
  • Matthew Henson    It'll work, if God, wind, leads, ice, snow, and all the hells of this damned frozen land are willing.
  • Maurice Sendak    Inside all of us is... hope. Inside all of us is... fear. Inside all of us is... adventure. Inside all of us is a wild thing.
  • Maxine Hong Kingston    No husband of mine will say, "I could have been a drummer, but I had to think about the wife and kids. You know how it is." Nobody supports me at the expense of his own adventure.
  • Maxwell Maltz    You are embarking on the greatest adventure of your life - to improve your self-image, to create more meaning in your life and in the lives of others. This is your responsibility.
  • Maya Angelou    Because of the routines we follow, we often forget that life is an ongoing adventure. . . Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art: to bring all our energies to each encounter, to remain flexible enough to notice and admit when what we expected to happen did not happen. We need to remember that we are created creative and can invent new scenarios as frequently as they are needed.
  • Maya Angelou    Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art.
  • Meat Loaf    It was always summer and the future called We were ready for adventure and we wanted them all And there was so much left to dream And so much time to make it real.
  • Megan Shull    I'd love to say that I'm this brave person doing this big adventure and that it's easy. The truth is, the night before I left, I called my mom, crying and nervous, thinking, 'What am I getting into? Can I really ride my bike across the country?'
  • Mehmet Murat Ildan    If there is no adventure in your life, it is as if you live no life! Adventure is the real soul of man; without it, He is a stub!
  • Melissa Auf der Maur    Sure, give me an adventure and I'll ride it.
  • Mercedes Lackey    Adventure, yeah. I guess that's what you call it when everybody comes back alive.
  • Meriwether Lewis    The weather was fine and moderate. The hunters all returned, having killed during their absence three elk, four deer, two porcupines, a fox and a hare.
  • Michael Chabon    Childhood, at its best, is a perpetual adventure, in the truest sense of that overtaxed word: a setting forth into trackless lands that might have come to existence the instant before you first laid eyes on them.
  • Michael Chandler    Sure, fear can protect us from danger—but most of the time it just keeps us from life’s great adventures.
  • Michael Connelly    Action and adventure on land and sea-you can't ask for more.
  • Michael Crichton    Science is the most exciting and sustained enterprise of discovery in the history of our species. It is the great adventure of our time. We live today in an era of discovery that far outshadows the discoveries of the New World five hundred years ago.
  • Michael Dell    With the understanding that you will face tough times and amazing experiences, you must also commit to the adventure. Just have faith in the skills and the knowledge you've been blessed with and go.
  • Michael J. Fox    I don't feel a yearning or a sense of missed opportunities. I don't have many regrets. So that's a nice feeling. To have no regrets and still have enough sense of adventure to take on risk.
  • Michael Palin    I wanted to be an explorer, but gradually found the world had been explored and that there was nowhere left, really. Once they climbed Everest in 1953, when I was 10 years old, I thought, 'Well, that's pretty much it now.' But the idea of travelling and exploring and adventure was very strong.
  • Michael Trucco    I jumped out of an airplane on my 34th birthday because I promised myself I would. I have an interest in confronting my fears.
  • Michelle Ryan    I adore water, so it would be a real adventure to visit the Amazon before they chop down all the trees.
  • Mike Yaconelli    I long for a life that explodes with meaning and is filled with adventure, wonder, risk, and danger. I long for a faith that is gloriously treacherous. I want to be with Jesus, not knowing whether to cry or laugh.
  • Mink Stole    Restless, and in desperate need of adventure, I quit my job at an insurance company to travel west with a couple of guys I smoked pot with, scandalizing my family.
  • Mink Stole    The point is, when you have a chance to have a big adventure, especially if, like in your case, it doesn't hurt anyone, it's just plain foolish not to take it.
  • Mirai Nagasu    I believe in adventure and imagination, and I got that from my parents and the things I experienced as a child.
  • Monica Baldwin    Leaps over walls - especially when taken late in life - can be extremely perilous. To leap successfully, you need a sense of humor, the spirit of adventure and an unshakable conviction that what you are leaping over is an obstacle upon which you would otherwise fall down.
  • Muhammad Iqbal    The possessor of a sound heart puts to test his power by entering into big adventures.
  • Murasaki Shikibu    It is in general the unexplored that attracts us.
  • Nathan Fillion    I want my job to include a little adventure, a little more of a heightened reality than what I'm actually living.
  • Nathaniel Branden    A productive purpose to which you give yourself fully and joyfully is one of the great adventures of life. It is a uniquely human source of happiness.
  • Nathaniel Philbrick    To my mind, an adventure is something a person willingly undertakes.
  • Navjot Singh Sidhu    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. And venture belongs to the adventurous.
  • Neal Stephenson    "Give me an adventure. I'm not talking about some massive adventure. Just something that would make getting fired seem small. Something that I might remember when I'm old." "I can't predict the future," I said, "but based on what little I know so far, I'm afraid it has to be a massive adventure or nothing." "Great!" "Probably the kind of adventure that ends in a mass burial."
  • Neale Donald Walsch    I tell you this: There is no coincidence, and nothing happens "by accident." Each event and adventure is called to your Self by your Self in order that you might create and experience Who You Really Are.
  • Neale Donald Walsch    Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
  • Neil deGrasse Tyson    I am proud to be part of a species where a subset of its members willingly put their lives at risk to push the boundaries of our existence.
  • Neon Hitch    I grew up in a bus, traveled with various circuses and freak shows. I was a trapeze artist, and that was my dream. We just traveled the whole world, me and my mom and my little brothers and sisters. It was an adventure.
  • Nev Schulman    Life experience is what defines our character... Going on the adventure or taking that risk is important.
  • Nevil Shute    To put your life in danger from time to time... breeds a saneness in dealing with day-to-day trivialities.
  • Nigel Kennedy    I'm always improving and I want to get better and never hit a plateau. I find it an amazing adventure.
  • Nik Halik    Dare to dream, live with passion. Make your life an epic extraordinary adventure!
  • Nikki Giovanni    We love because it's the only true adventure.
  • Nolan Gerard Funk    I think I always wanted to have adventures in my life. I was always kind of a rambunctious kid.
  • Norma Shearer    An adventure may be worn as a muddy spot or it may be worn as a proud insignia. It is the woman wearing it who makes it the one thing or the other.
  • Norman Cousins    Intelligence and the spirit of adventure can be combined to create new energies, and out of these energies may come exciting and rewarding new prospects.
  • O. Henry    The true adventurer goes forth aimless and uncalculating to meet and greet unknown fate.
  • Oleg Cassini    The best of life is to embark on an adventure with a woman interested in having an adventure with you.
  • Oliver Lodge    Death is not a foe, but an inevitable adventure.
  • Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.    A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.
  • Omar N. Bradley    Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
  • Oprah Winfrey    Step through new doors. The majority of the time there's something fantastic on the other side.
  • Oprah Winfrey    The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.
  • Ovid    The bold adventurer succeeds the best.
  • Pam Houston    Sometimes no matter how well you prepare, no matter how conservative your decision making, no matter how few Y chromosomes are along on your trip, you can still find yourself in a mud slide or a hurricane without a dry piece of clothing to your name. But those of us who have given our time and usually our hearts to outdoorsmen over the years know that, for many of them, it's not really a wilderness trip unless, MacGyver-like, they have to make a fire out of a pair of shorts, a glow stick, and a ketchup bottle; it's not really an adventure until someone gets airlifted out.
  • Paramahansa Yogananda    The soul's first adventure is the fight between two ideas: the wish to return to earth in a human form, and the desire to feel the freedom of having no form.
  • Pat Conroy    Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.
  • Patrick Lencioni    Life is full of surprises: new opportunities come up; that's part of the fun - the adventure of life. The thing is, chaos doesn't allow us to enjoy the adventure.
  • Patrick Lindsay    "Every new friend is a new adventure... the start of more memories."
  • Patti Hansen    Those of us who refuse to risk and grow get swallowed up by life.
  • Paul Allen    Part of life has to be about enjoying life and having different experiences, especially if you're with friends and you're on an adventure on a boat or a submarine - it's a lot of fun.
  • Paul Buchheit    Part of the excitement was just seeing how the world would respond. I kind of like uncertainty to some extent, because it's a little bit of suspense and excitement and adventure, almost, right? And you can learn a lot even if things don't work out. But not everyone likes adventure. A lot of people seem to be against uncertainty, actually. In all areas of life.
  • Paul J. McAuley    Societies as well as people become afraid of change as they grow older. It's human nature. The young have adventures while the old sit at home and nurture their memories.
  • Paul Kurtz    As I see it, creative achievement is the very heart of the human enterprise... The destiny of man, of all men and of each man, is that he is condemned to invent what he will be - condemned if he is fearful but blessed if he welcomes the great adventure. We are responsible in the last analysis, not simply for what we are, but for what we will become; and that is a source of either high excitement or distress.
  • Paul Muldoon    I love adventure stories.
  • Paul Theroux    Tourists don't know where they've been, travelers don't know where they're going.
  • Paul Verlaine    The poet is a madman lost in adventure.
  • Paulo Coelho    If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine; it is lethal.
  • Paulo Coelho    The adrenaline and stress of an adventure are better than a thousand peaceful days.
  • Paulo Coelho    The danger of an adventure is worth a thousand days of ease and comfort
  • Pearl S. Buck    The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible - and achieve it, generation after generation.
  • Pete Goss    I have been fortunate to have been brought up on a diet of adventure and privileged to take part in number of challenges. My training in the Royal Marines taught me to be professional at all times, even in dangerous and frightening circumstances. But fear can be dispelled by knowledge and preparation. Life hangs on a very thin thread and the cancer of time is complacency. If you are going to do something, do it now. Tomorrow is too late.
  • Peter Ackroyd    It may seem unfashionable to say so, but historians should seize the imagination as well as the intellect. History is, in a sense, a story, a narrative of adventure and of vision, of character and of incident. It is also a portrait of the great general drama of the human spirit.
  • Peter Croft    For me an adventure is something that I can take an active part in but that I don't have total control over.
  • Peter Croft    To reach beyond what you are you must ignore the rules and fashions of the day. Or perhaps better yet cast them way out in your peripheral vision where you can still see them but only as a vague reference point. This doesn’t mean that all the rules are gone. It might mean that you adopt a far tighter code of conduct to ensure the necessary level of intensity and adventure.
  • Peter De Vries    We pay for security with boredom, for adventure with bother.
  • Peter Mayle    There is nothing like a comfortable adventure to put people in a good humor. . .
  • Peter McWilliams    Nothing adventured, nothing attained
  • Peter O'Toole    I do not choose to be a common man…it is my right to be uncommon—if I can…I seek opportunity—not security…I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed… to refuse to barter incentive for a dole… I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence, the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopias….
  • Philippe Cousteau, Jr.    EarthEcho Expeditions represents the culmination of more than a decade of working with educators and youth from around the world. EarthEcho Expeditions uses the thrill of adventure to inspire and empower a new generation of environmental champions.
  • Philippe Cousteau, Jr.    Let's face it. Adventure and exploration are in my blood.
  • Pico Iyer    A traveler is really not someone who crosses ground so much as someone who is always hungry for the next challenge and adventure.
  • Poul Anderson    These lands are not always calm. We may well have more adventures ahead of us. But we shall meet them with high hearts.
  • Prince Charles    I think I can safely say that, as adolescents, most people have excess energy to spare and need adventure, excitement, and a challenge.
  • Princess Beatrice of York    Learning is the gateway to adventure.
  • Priscilla Presley    No one has really heard my side of the story, the adventure we had together, the transformation that I had going from a schoolgirl to a woman overnight.
  • Quincy Jones    I've been driven all my life by a spirit of adventure and a criminal level of optimism. I believed in my dreams because they were my only option. The people who make it to the top are addicted to their calling. You have to honor the gift God has given you. The people who get the call are the ones who'd be doing whatever it is they love, even if they weren't being paid.
  • Rabindranath Tagore    Let us not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless when facing them.
  • Rabindranath Tagore    You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.
  • Rachel Boston    I moved from a mountain with one traffic light to New York City when I was 17, and it was an amazing, eye opening, creative adventure. I would walk through the streets of Manhattan looking up at these huge buildings, amazed that I didn't know a single person in any of them.
  • Rachel Khoo    I think for me the final push to move to Paris was the fact I wanted an adventure and I was slightly bored of my life in London.
  • Rachel McAdams    I don't know, I like to go on really different types of dates. Going someplace new or some new part of the city, something that's not your average thing. Something where you just go have an adventure together.
  • Rachel Naomi Remen    Life is known only by those who have found a way to be comfortable with change and the unknown. Given the nature of life, there may be no security, but only adventure.
  • Radha Mitchell    As much as most of the actors were kind of curious to know what their character meant in relation to the script and to the plot, they really were quite happy to be part of the adventure of not knowing.
  • Raha Moharrak    I climbed nine mountains because I love adventure, and I got addicted to that feeling and I never wanted to stop. I wanted to see what I could accomplish. I finally can say that I stood on top of the world.
  • Raha Moharrak    I did not set out to be a poster child for anything. I saw a mountain. I wanted to climb it.
  • Raha Moharrak    I wanted something different; I wanted something that challenged me and that pushed me further. Then this idea of climbing Mount Everest came to my mind. It stuck in my head for days. Someone told me I couldn't do it, and that really annoyed me.
  • Raha Moharrak    It doesn't have to be a mountain you have to be climbing. I hope to change people's opinion about Saudi in general and Saudi women and Saudi women's opinion about themselves. I really hope they can step out of their comfort zone and just dream: try to push your limits.
  • Rajneesh    You have to be again innocent, ignorant, not knowing anything, so that the questions can start arising again. Again the inquiry becomes alive, and with the inquiry becoming alive you cannot vegetate. Then life becomes an exploration, an adventure.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    Do not follow where the path may lead.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    It is the dissenter, the theorist, the aspirant, who is quitting this ancient domain to embark on seas of adventure, who engages our interest. Omitting then for the present all notice of the stationary class, we shall find that the movement party divides itself into two classes, the actors, and the students.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    Life is in short cycles or periods; we are quickly tired, but we have rapid rallies. A man is spent by his work, starved, prostrate; he will not lift his hand to save his life; he can never think more. He sinks into deep sleep and wakes with renewed youth, with hope, courage, fertile in resources, and keen for daring adventure.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson    Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.
  • Ram Charan    I am a reserved guy and need somebody to pep me up every day, Upsi does that job perfectly. She is very vivacious and outspoken, so we blend very well. We both love travelling, and we have a thing for adventure. We love being outdoors and like to ride our own boat rather than being rowed by someone else.
  • Randall Munroe    There are so many adventures that you miss because you're waiting to think of a plan. To find them, look for tiny interesting choices. And remember that you are always making up the future as you go.
  • Ranulph Fiennes    People who go to the polar regions are statistically less likely to die than salesmen who drive on motorways in England.
  • Ranulph Fiennes    Rivalry is one of the factors pushing me. While my back was turned, the Norwegians managed to achieve the first Arctic crossing in winter. I didn't want the same to happen in the Antarctic.
  • Ranulph Fiennes    There's no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing
  • Ranulph Fiennes    While I was serving, I worked as an adventure training officer, teaching soldiers how to ski, canoe and climb.
  • Ray Bradbury    Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.
  • Ray Bradbury    You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.
  • Ray Stannard Baker    Adventure is not outside; it is within.
  • Raymond B. Fosdick    The herd may graze where it pleases or stampede where it pleases, but he who lives the adventurous life will remain unafraid when he finds himself alone.
  • Reed Hastings    But as an entrepreneur you have to feel like you can jump out of an aeroplane because you're confident that you'll catch a bird flying by. It's an act of stupidity, and most entrepreneurs go splat because the bird doesn't come by, but a few times it does.
  • Reinhold Messner    Adventure has to do with private, personal experiences. But, the possibilities, there are millions of unclimbed mountains - I have seen in the Eastern part of Tibet, mountains 6,000-6,500 meters high, vertical walls twice as tall as the Eiger... but nobody is going there, because they aren't 8,000-meter peaks.
  • Reinhold Messner    Around half of the top alpinists have died climbing. Of course if I'm careful and turn back more often than the others, I can increase my chances of survival. But if I hadn't been lucky a few times, I wouldn't be here.
  • Reinhold Messner    Climbing is all about freedom, the freedom to go beyond all the rules and take a chance, to experience something new, to gain insight into human nature.
  • Reinhold Messner    Climbing is more of an art than a sport. It's the aesthetics of a mountain that compels me. The line of a route, the style of ascent. It is creative.
  • Reinhold Messner    First, I am afraid to die and I love to live. But an adventure is only an adventure when there is the threat of dying.
  • Reinhold Messner    For me, climbing has always been about adventure and that involves difficulties, danger and exposure, so I deliberately set out to climb with as little equipment as possible.
  • Reinhold Messner    For me, imagination is more important in climbing than muscle or daredevil antics.
  • Reinhold Messner    I go to the mountains for an adventure and each time I pray I will get up and down again.
  • Reinhold Messner    I go to the wild mountains where I am responsible for myself. Step by step I am making sure that I don't die.
  • Reinhold Messner    I have always said that a mountain without danger is not a mountain.
  • Reinhold Messner    I have been in the most dangerous of places just in order to survive. An intelligent man would stay in a safe place to survive.
  • Reinhold Messner    I learned a lot from more experienced mountaineers, such as Peter Habeler, but by the time I was about 21 I reckoned I had learned all that I needed to make me technically self-sufficient anywhere.
  • Reinhold Messner    I was 5 when I went up my first 10,000 ft mountain, with my parents, and I have been climbing ever since.
  • Reinhold Messner    I was in continual agony; I have never in my life been so tired as on the summit of Everest that day. I just sat and sat there, oblivious to everything.
  • Reinhold Messner    I was the first man to climb the world's 14 tallest peaks without supplementary oxygen, but I never asked how high I would go, just how I would do it.
  • Reinhold Messner    I'm a rock climber, a high-altitude climber, an adventurer, a storyteller through my museums, and a writer of more than 50 books.
  • Reinhold Messner    In climbing there is no question of right or wrong. Moral right or wrong, that is a religious question, they have nothing to do with anarchical activity, and classical mountaineering is a completely anarchical activity.
  • Reinhold Messner    Life is about daring to carry out your ideas. And for me, it always comes back to the wilderness, nature, mountains.
  • Reinhold Messner    My aim is not just to help preserve what is left of mountain life, but to create a centre where people can study and learn about it.
  • Reinhold Messner    My brother is in me. When we remember somebody else, in a certain way they are still alive. I see my brother - he is still young - looking to the Dolomites where we did our ascents. I remember those moments, so he is still together with me.
  • Reinhold Messner    Out of all the climbers of this generation, I was the one who became known to the larger public. Many of them - not all of them, but many of them - understood they had only one chance to use me for their personal gain. And it's very easy to use me.
  • Reinhold Messner    The art of climbing is the art of survival. The best climber is the man or woman going in the most crazy places but surviving.
  • Reinhold Messner    The art of climbing is to go where you go knowing that you could die, but you don't die. That is adventure.
  • Reinhold Messner    The true alpinist doesn't want any infrastructure, he wants to go into the wild. And the odds of getting killed there are relatively high. And most people are sensible enough not to want that.
  • Reinhold Messner    There are periods on the mountain when you exist between living and dying, sometimes for days. I went through that with my brother on Nanga Parbat. It is very difficult, but it is the most intense experience. And always after such experiences, when I was back among people, I felt I had been reborn.
  • Reinhold Messner    There are three elements of mountaineering - difficulty, danger, and exposure. Difficulty is the technical aspect of it. Danger, it is best to avoid, but some people like to increase danger to a point where their success is dependent only on luck. And exposure, which is what truly defines Alpinism, is what you face in wild nature.
  • Reinhold Messner    There is no joy involved in climbing mountains, there is simply the challenge, the self-invented challenge, the play.
  • Reinhold Messner    To me, it's just not that important whether someone climbs the Eigerwand in ten hours or in three.
  • Reinhold Messner    Traditional alpinism is slowly disappearing. It is becoming sport, indoors on small walls with holds where you cannot really fall.
  • Reinhold Messner    Traditional alpinism is to go where the others are not going and to be self-reliant.
  • Reinhold Messner    Ueli Steck, I'm absolutely certain, had a very strong inner drive to keep pushing. He set very high standards for himself.
  • Reinhold Messner    When I lost seven of my toes on Nanga Parbat and small parts of my fingertips I knew I'd never be a great rock climber. So I specialized in high-altitude climbing.
  • Reinhold Messner    William Blake said 200 years ago that when man and mountains meet, something big is happening. I'm searching for the 'big.'
  • Rene Dubos    As long as mankind is made up of independent individuals with free will, there cannot be any social status quo. Men will develop new urges, and these will give rise to new problems, which will require ever new solutions. Human life implies adventure, and there is no adventure without struggles and dangers.
  • Rene Dubos    Man could escape danger only by renouncing adventure, by abandoning that which has given to the human condition its unique character and genius among the rest of living things.
  • Rhys Darby    Whether it be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or dealing with your children, life is an adventure, and it's how you perceive it.
  • Richard Aldington    Adventure is allowing the unexpected to happen to you. Exploration is experiencing what you have not experienced before. How can there be any adventure, any exploration, if you let somebody else - above all, a travel bureau - arrange everything before-hand?
  • Richard Bach    I've learned that it is what I do not know that I fear, and I strive, outwardly from pride, inwardly from the knowledge that the unknown is what will finally kill me, to know all there is to be known about my airplane. I will never die.
  • Richard Bach    Remember the high board at the swimming pool? After days of looking up at it you finally climbed the wet steps to the platform. From there, it was higher than ever. There were only two ways down: the steps to defeat of the dive to victory. You stood on the edge, shivering in the hot sun, deathly afraid. At last you leaned too far forward, it was too late for retreat, and you dived. The high board was conquered, and you spent the rest of the day diving. Climbing a thousand high boards, we demolish fear, and turn into human beings.
  • Richard Bach    What would our lives be like without tests, odds against us, adventure, risk?
  • Richard Branson    Dream big and you will be presented with the opportunity to lead the world on an incredible adventure.
  • Richard Branson    I like to set myself a new adventure challenge at least once or twice a year because I love that side of my life. I love getting fit and training for it.
  • Richard Branson    I was a risk-taker as a young man, and I don't regret it. I'm not adventurous in quite the same way now, but I still love the challenge of testing myself to the limits, flying around the world, or seeing if I can be the first to fly a balloon across the Atlantic, or trying to take people into space at an affordable price in an environmentally friendly way. I'll be going into space with three generations of my family!
  • Richard Branson    We're going where no one has gone before. There's no model to follow, nothing to copy. That is what makes this so exciting.
  • Richard E. Byrd    Few men during their lifetime comes anywhere near exhausting the resources dwelling within them. There are deep wells of strength that are never used.
  • Richard Francis Burton    I was surrounded at the time by about a dozen of the enemy, whose clubs rattled upon me without mercy, and the strokes of my sabre were rendered uncertain by the energetic pushes of an attendant who thus hoped to save me.
  • Richard Francis Burton    Of the gladdest moments in human life, methinks, is the departure upon a distant journey into unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of Habit, the leaden weight of Routine, the cloak of many Cares and the slavery of Civilization, man feels once more happy.
  • Richard Louv    What if more and more parents, grandparents and kids around the country band together to create outdoor adventure clubs, family nature networks, family outdoor clubs, or green gyms? What if this approach becomes the norm in every community?
  • Rick Steves    Travel is intensified living … and one of the last great sources of legal adventure.
  • Rick Yancey    What boy my age didn’t dream of fleeing the well-tended lawn and lamp-lit street for the untamed wilderness, where grand adventure awaited on the other side of the horizon, where the stars burned undimmed in the velvet sky above his head and the virgin ground lay untrodden beneath his feet?
  • Roald Amundsen    Adventure is just bad planning.
  • Rob Brezsny    All of us need to be in touch with a mysterious, tantalizing source of inspiration that teases our sense of wonder and goads us on to life’s next adventure.
  • Rob Lowe    Adventure is important in life. Making memories matters. It doesn’t have to be a secret sea plane and an historic sports moment. But to have a great life, you need great memories. Grab any intriguing offer. Say yes to a challenge, and to the unknown. Be creative in adding drama and scope to your own life. Work at it, like a job. Money from effort comes and goes. But effort from imagination and following adventure creates stories that you keep forever. And anyone can do it.
  • Rob Mariano    Who knows, I have always lived one day at a time. Probably more adventure and excitement.
  • Robert Aris Willmott    Some gifted adventurer is always sailing round the world of art and science, to bring home costly merchandise from every port.

  • Robert Browning    Once more on my adventure brave and new.
  • Robert Burns    Burns, has spent years exploring the many avenues for adventure and fun in San Diego. The fact that you can experience the desert, snow, mountains and ocean in the course of a day has always been amazing to me. If you are really motivated, you can snow ski, surf, take a mountain hike, and race dune buggies all in one weekend, .. I grew up here and want to showcase San Diego to the world. I love San Diego.
  • Robert Byron    Herat, 8 December. What a day it was! God save me from any more adventures on a drained stomach.
  • Robert Dale Owen    Wisdom, prudence, forethought, these are essential. But not second to these that noble courage which adventures the right, and leaves the consequences to God.
  • Robert Falcon Scott    Every day some new fact comes to light - some new obstacle which threatens the gravest obstruction. I suppose this is the reason which makes the game so well worth playing.
  • Robert Falcon Scott    Had we lived I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman. These rough notes and our dead bodies must tell the tale.
  • Robert Falcon Scott    I fear we have shot our bolt - but we have been to Pole and done the longest journey on record.
  • Robert Falcon Scott    We are showing that Englishmen can still die with a bold spirit, fighting it out to the end.
  • Robert Falcon Scott    We are very near the end, but have not and will not lose our good cheer.
  • Robert Falcon Scott    We are weak, writing is difficult, but for my own sake I do not regret this journey, which has shown that Englishmen can endure hardships, help one another, and meet death with as great a fortitude as ever in the past.
  • Robert Falcon Scott    We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course and the end cannot be far. It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. For God's sake, look after our people.
  • Robert Frost    Two roads diverged in a wood and I - I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.
  • Robert Kennedy    Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.
  • Robert Kurson    I think that pirates represent every person's ability to get up and leave their current daily situation and go on an adventure, and maybe to see things and do things they've never done before or even dreamed of doing.
  • Robert Kurson    It's never too late in life to have a genuine adventure.

  • Roberta Williams    An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.
  • Roberta Williams    My definition of an adventure game is an interactive story set with puzzles and obstacles to solve and worlds to explore.
  • Roberto Assagioli    There is no certainty; there is only adventure.
  • Robin Hunicke    Learning how to make your own fun and discover things on your own is something that is applicable to any job, any relationship, any trip, any adventure in life.
  • Robin Sharma    See your life as a giant adventure. Keep pushing the envelope, and remember that every dream starts off small.
  • Robyn Davidson    Life's the adventure. You don't have to drop your bundle and go bush. It's about being brave within the context that you're in.
  • Robyn Davidson    To be free one needs constant and unrelenting vigilance over one's weaknesses. A vigilance which requires a moral energy most of us are incapable of manufacturing. We relax back into the moulds of habit. They are secure, they bind us and keep us contained at the expense of freedom. To break the moulds, to be heedless of the seductions of security is an impossible struggle, but one of the few that count. To be free is to learn, to test yourself constantly, to gamble.
  • Roger Staubach    It's the beginning of a great adventure, and we're looking forward to it.
  • Rolf Potts    The secret of adventure, then, is not to carefully seek it out but to travel in such a way that it finds you. To do this, you first need to overcome the protective habits of home and open yourself up to unpredictability. As you begin to practice this openness, you'll quickly discover adventure in the simple reality of a world that defies your expectations. More often than not, you'll discover that “adventure” is a decision after the fact-a way of deciphering an event or an experience that you can't quite explain.
  • Ron Howard    As a director, I've wanted to have adventure in my life, creative adventure. I think it's partly because I grew up, basically from age six to 26, mostly on television series where the producers find something that works and then do it over and over and over again.
  • Ronald Reagan    The future doesn't belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.
  • Rosalia de Castro    I see my path, but I don't know where it leads. Not knowing where I'm going is what inspires me to travel it.
  • Rosalind Russell    It had been an enormous, extraordinary, outrageous adventure. And it was deadly.
  • Roseanne Barr    I want to be the girl in Indiana Jones. I would love to do an adventure movie where I was saving the world. It might be cool if I used a lot of kitchen tools to fight off the enemy.
  • Rosita Forbes    That is the charm of a map. It represents the other side of the horizon where everything is possible. It has the magic of anticipation without the toil and sweat of realization. The greatest romance ever written pales before the possibilities of adventure that lie in the faint blue trails from sea to sea. The perfect journey is never finished, the goal is always just across the next river, round the shoulder of the next mountain. There is always one more track to follow, one more mirage to explore. Achievement is the price which the wanderer pays for the right to venture.
  • Ruth Rudner    Adventure is our birthright.
  • Ryan North    As a kid, I loved the idea of alternate possibilities, roads not taken, that sort of thing - and I think seeing the 'Adventure Time' universe rendered by the artists in those stories will scratch that same itch really well.
  • S. J. Perelman    If travel has taught me nothing more, and it certainly has, it's this: you never know when some trifling incident, utterly without significance, may pitchfork you into adventure or, by the same token, may not.
  • Sally Ride    All adventures, especially into new territory, are scary.
  • Salman Rushdie    I suppose it must have been some spirit of adventure, of wanting to see the world.
  • Samina Baig    My most cherished desire is to help our women come out of their routine chores and infuse in them the indefatigable spirit of adventure.
  • Samuel Beckett    An imaginative adventure does not enjoy the same corsets as reportage.
  • Samuel Johnson    How many may a man of diffusive conversation count among his acquaintances, whose lives have been signalized by numberless escapes; who never cross the river but in a storm, or take a journey into the country without more adventures than befel the knights-errant of ancient times in pathless forests or enchanted castles! How many must he know, to whom portents and prodigies are of daily occurrence; and for whom nature is hourly working wonders invisible to every other eye, only to supply them with subjects of conversation?
  • Sara Sheridan    I had loved poetry and the theatre. Now I loved adventure more.
  • Sara Sheridan    I had never really understood what an adventure life could be, if you followed your heart and did what you really wanted to do, which is what we must all do in the end.
  • Sara Sheridan    We're famous for travelling in search of adventure.
  • Sarah Ban Breathnach    Always remember, it's simply not an adventure worth telling if there aren't any dragons.
  • Sarah Brightman    A journey into space is the greatest adventure I can imagine.
  • Saul Alinsky    Life is there ahead of you and either one tests oneself in its challenges or huddles in the valleys of a dreamless day-to-day existence whose only purpose is the preservation of a illusory security and safety. The latter is what the vast majority of people choose to do, fearing the adventure into the known.
  • Scott Borchetta    Every day is an adventure, and no two days are ever alike.
  • Sebastian Pinera    I'm a person with a lot of affection for adventure - I scuba dive, skydive, fly helicopters.
  • Shakira    I now talk to different cultures, and I hope that I can bridge those gaps and differences between us. It's an adventure, a dream... I feel like I'm on an anthropological mission.
  • Shane Smith    I thought I was a pretty good writer, but I didn't have anything to write about. I wanted to go out in the world, have some adventures and then write about them.
  • Sheila Kaye-Smith    The great question of all choosers and adventurers is 'Was it worth while?' - and whatever else you may expect of life, don't expect an answer to that.
  • Shekhar Kapur    Filmmaking is a great adventure. I'm as excited as a kid to be given tickets to fly suddenly to England, South Africa, America, everywhere. I'm still a 13-year-old kid, flying.
  • Shenaz Treasury    Travelling by myself is always more of an adventure: I meet more people. I experience the place to the fullest. I'm on my own schedule.
  • Siddharth Katragadda    Having settled down in the promised land of money and adventure - returning to a land of your parents last days can be a big dilemma to many. Isn't your greatest wealth your parents, and the best adventure - to see them happy before they go.
  • Sigurd F. Olson    As long as there are young men with the light of adventure in their eyes and a touch of wildness in their souls, rapids will be run.
  • Simon Sebag Montefiore    I see the world as an adventure thriller and a voyage of discovery.
  • Sonia Choquette    When you breathe into fear it becomes adventure
  • Soren Kierkegaard    To venture causes anxiety, but not to venture is to lose one's self.... And to venture in the highest is precisely to be conscious of one's self.
  • Spencer Wells    We spent an enormous amount of time as hominids and as primates living as hunter-gatherers. That is the natural way for us to live, and we're suddenly living in this profoundly unnatural way, and we're still in the process of adapting to it and working out how to live with it.
  • Stan Lee    Wherever we find news, excitement, mystery and adventure, there, too, we find the newspaper reporter. Always on the alert for something new, ready to risk his very life for a scoop and finding adventure in every corner of the globe.
  • Steve Jobs    Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
  • Steve McQueen    One of the things that make motorcycling so great is because it never fails to give you a feeling of freedom and adventure.
  • Steve Pavlina    Don't die without embracing the daring adventure your life is meant to be.
  • Steven Kotler    Instead, over the past thirty years, in the world of action and adventure sports, in situations where asses really were on the line, the bounds of the possible have been pushed further and faster than ever before in history. We've seen near-exponential growth in ultimate human performance, which is both hyperbolic paradox and considerable mystery. Somehow, a generation's worth of iconoclastic misfits have rewritten the rules of the feasible, not just raising the bar but often obliterating it altogether. And this brings up one final question: Where-if anywhere-do our actual limits lie?
  • Stewart Emery    A relationship should not suppress our adventure or suppress the speed with which we learn the lessons that are there for us to learn.
  • Susan Cain    Introverts are offered keys to private gardens full of riches. To possess such a key is to tumble like Alice down her rabbit hole. She didn't choose to go to Wonderland - but she made of it an adventure that was fresh and fantastic and very much her own.
  • Susan Sontag    I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list.
  • Sushant Singh Rajput    I crave for adventure. It makes me feel alive and excited. It's a constant tussle between what you want to do and other parameters that aren't in your hands.
  • Sven Hedin    Through the clouds of smoke I seemed to see all old Asia before me, and the adventures of past years behind me. A carnival of old camp-scenes danced before my mind’s eye, expiring like shooting-stars in the night—merry songs which came to an end among other mountains and the dying sound of strings and flutes. And I was surprised that I had not had enough of these things and that I was not tired of the light of camp-fires.
  • T. S. Eliot    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
  • T. S. Eliot    We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
  • Tacitus    Reckless adventure is the fool's hazard.
  • Tahir Shah    Most journeys have a clear beginning, but on some the ending is less well-defined. The question is, at what point do you bite your lip and head for home?
  • Tahir Shah    On a harsh expedition, there's no space for anyone who does not intend to finish.
  • Ted Andrews    Enchanted worlds still exist because the child within us never dies. The doorways may be more obscure, but we can still seek them out. There are still noble adventures to undertake. There are still trees that speak and caverns that lead to nether realms. There will always be faeries and elves within nature because they will always be dancing in our hearts.
  • Tennessee Williams    Make voyages. Attempt them. There's nothing else.
  • Tennessee Williams    Security is a kind of death.
  • Tenzing Norgay    If I know I make this much trouble, I never climb Everest.
  • Tenzing Norgay    If it is a shame to be the second man on Mount Everest, then I will have to live with this shame.
  • Terry Pratchett    Adventure! People talked about the idea as if it were something worthwhile, rather than a mess of bad food, no sleep and strange people inexplicably trying to stick pointed objects in bits of you.
  • Terry Pratchett    Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.
  • Theodore Roosevelt    The joy of living is his who has the heart to demand it. Life is a great adventure, and I want to say to you, accept it in such a spirit.
  • Theodore Roosevelt    There are dreadful moments when death comes very near those we love, even if for the time being it passes by. But life is a great adventure, and the worst of all fears is the fear of living.
  • Thomas Gray    Some bold adventurers disdain The limits of their little reign, And unknown regions date descry.
  • Thor Heyerdahl    Borders I have never seen one. But I have heard they exist in the minds of some people.
  • Thornton Wilder    Life is a fatal adventure. It can only have one end. So why not make it as far-ranging and free as possible.
  • Thornton Wilder    The test of an adventure is that when you're in the middle of it, you say to yourself "Oh now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home.' And the sign that something's wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure.
  • Thornton Wilder    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.
  • Tim Cahill    Adventure travel existed before I started, I just didn't know it.
  • Tim Cahill    For many years I thought my job was to go to places where it would be difficult for most of the readers to ever get to. Now, in the more than 20 years I've been doing this, the concept of adventure-travel trips or expeditions by groups has sprung up. The places I went 20 years ago now have adventure-travel trips.
  • Tim Cahill    For me, to find a place that doesn't have an organized tour going to it is becoming more and more difficult. A lot of times it involves danger of a political nature - places where the adventure-travel trips can't go because they can't get any liability insurance.
  • Tim Cahill    I am living out my adolescent dream of travel and adventure.
  • Tim Cahill    I have no problem with the adventure travel movement. It makes better, more sensitive people. If you get people diving on a coral reef, they're going to become more respectful of the outdoors and more concerned with the threats that places like that face and they're going to care more about protecting them than they would have before.
  • Tim Cahill    The dirty little secret about adventure writing is that something has to go wrong.
  • Tim Schafer    I think I just have an idea in my head about how big an adventure game should be… There's just a certain amount of scope needed to create a complex puzzle space and to develop a real story. At least with my brain, there is.
  • Tom Anderson    I don't know exactly where my life will lead. Adventure and the unknown has always been appealing to me.
  • Tom Bodett    I went to Alaska as a young man just looking for adventure. And like so many of us in the '70s, we found it.
  • Tom Brokaw    I believe you make your own luck. My motto is ‘It’s always a mistake not to go.’ So I jump on the airplane, try new things—sometimes I get in way over my head, but then I think, I’ll work my way out of this somehow. A big part of making your own luck is just charging out of the gate every morning…The thing I love about living in New York is that I never fail to get up in the morning and think, Something adventurous is going to happen today. The energy is operating at full throttle all the time. And if you want to be lucky you’ve got to go out and take advantage of it.
  • Tom Cavanagh    I'm 57 years old and there are adventures out there for me.
  • Tom Hanks    The "Toy Story" films accomplish what timeless classics aim for - innocent characters who face an endless trail of adventures.
  • Tom Hornbein    Just a rock, a dome of snow, the deep blue sky, and a hunk of orange-painted metal from which a shredded American flag cracked in the wind. Nothing more. Except two tiny figures walking together those last few feet to the top of the Earth.
  • Tom Robbins    Our greatest human adventure is the evolution of consciousness. We are in this life to enlarge the soul, liberate the spirit, and light up the brain.
  • Tom Robbins    The principal difference between an adventurer and a suicide is that the adventurer leaves himself a margin of escape (the narrower the margin the greater the adventure).
  • Tom Waits    I don't like the stigma that comes with being called a poet . . . So I call what I'm doing an improvisational adventure or an inebriational travelogue.

  • Tony Robbins    All growth starts at the end of your comfort zone.
  • Travis Kalanick    Adventure with a purpose is what we do.

  • Trenton Lee Stewart    May your adventures bring you closer together, even as they take you far away from home.
  • Trey Anastasio    We want to have a spontaneous adventure. You can't plan an adventure, or it ceases to be one.
  • Tyler Hamilton    If you like the outdoors, Colorado is a big adventure playground for adults: it's great for skiing, cycling, climbing, and hiking.
  • Valentina Tereshkova    To tell her that I joined the parachute club was too hard for me. I didn't want to trouble her; besides, I was not completely sure about the success of my new adventure.
  • Vanilla Ice    I do a lot of TV stuff, but I also turn a lot down - it's got to be an adventure.
  • Vicky Krieps    When I got pregnant, I knew I wasn't anywhere in my career, that I had not arrived. I was still on my adventure, and so I said to the child in my belly, 'I am so happy for you to come, but you should know I'm still on my way, and you'll have to come with me and be in my rucksack.'
  • Victoria Alexander    Adventure, like beauty, is very much in the eye of the beholder.
  • Vincent Cassel    I work everywhere. If there is a nice adventure in South Korea, for example, why not? Russia, Brazil, whatever. I'm ready for almost anything.
  • Vincent Cassel    If most women are looking for security, I think men look for adventure.
  • Vincent Van Gogh    I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate.
  • Vincent Van Gogh    The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.
  • Virginia Woolf    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.
  • W. Somerset Maugham    Every production of an artist should be the expression of an adventure of his soul.
  • Wally Byam    Adventure is where you find it, any place, every place, except at home in the rocking chair.
  • Walt Disney    I think what I want Disneyland to be most of all is a happy place - a place where adults and children can experience together some of the wonders of life, of adventure, and feel better because of it.
  • Walter Raleigh    Fain would I climb, yet fear I to fall.
  • Warren Miller    Adventure is the invitation to common people to become uncommon.
  • Wayne Visser    There are moments when suddenly our eyes blink open and we recapture the excitement of living. Life becomes an adventure and we, adventurers.
  • Wes Anderson    I don't really look for challenges as much as I like adventures. Other than that I'm just trying to find stories I want to tell.
  • Wilferd Peterson    A man practices the art of adventure when he heroically faces up to life. When he has the daring to open doors to new experiences. When he is unafraid of new ideas, new theories and new philosophies. When he has the curiosity to experiment. When he breaks the chain of routine.
  • Wilferd Peterson    Adventure begins with you, personally. It is in the way you look at things. It is the mental stance you take as you face your day. It is finding magic in things. It is talking with people and discovering their inner goodness. It is the thrill of feeling a part of the life around you. The attitude of adventure will open things up for you. The world will become alive with new zest and meaning. You'll become more aware of the beauty everywhere. Nothing will seem unimportant. Everything will be revealed as having pattern and purpose.

  • William Bolitho    Adventure is the vitaminizing element in histories both individual and social.
  • William Bolitho    Adventure must start with running away from home.
  • William Bolitho    An adventure differs from a mere feat in that it is tied to the externally unattainable. Only one end of the rope is in the hand, the other is not visible, and neither prayers, nor daring, nor reason can shake it free.
  • William Bridges    Faith is the soul's adventure.
  • William F. Buckley, Jr.    All adventure is now reactionary.

  • William Least Heat-Moon    There are two kinds of adventurers: those who go truly hoping to find adventure and those who go secretly hoping they won't.
  • William McFee    It may be that, while we plodding realists go on, for ever preoccupied with our daily chores, abstracting a microscopic pleasure from each microscopic duty, your true romantic has the truer vision, and beholds, afar off, in all its lurid splendour and terrible proportions, the piquant adventure we call life.
  • William O. Douglas    I learned that the richness of life is found in adventure. . . . It develops self-reliance and independence. Life then teems with excitement. There is stagnation only in security.
