Better to sink beneath the shock
Than moulder piecemeal on the rock!
* Lord Byron
An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.
* G. K. Chesterton
It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves--in finding themselves.
* André Gide
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.
* Helen Keller
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
A large volume of adventures may be grasped within this little span of life, by him who interests his heart in everything.
* Laurence Sterne
If we do not find anything very pleasant, at least we shall find something new.
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.
* Virginia Woolf
