Into the Wild

Posted by on February 16, 2010

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 dangerous
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.
