Meditation: On Adopting a Spirit of Adventure

June 22, 2011

“An adventure is only an  inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.”

– G.K. Chesterton

*************************************************************************************************

“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 J. Boorstin

*************************************************************************************************

Ineffective people live day after day with unused potential. They experience synergy only in small, peripheral ways in their lives. But creative experiences can be produced regularly, consistently, almost daily in people’s lives. It requires enormous personal security and openness and a spirit of adventure.” -Stephen R. Covey

*************************************************************************************************

“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.” -William Orville Douglas

*************************************************************************************************

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