G. K. Chesterton
An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Plunge boldly into the thick of life, and seize it where you will, it is always interesting.
Security is a kind of death.
As a postscript, one of the quotes I came across was from Peter Pan: "To die will be an awfully big adventure." Only trouble is, the place I found it credited that quote ... to Aristotle. Somehow, "awfully big adventure" just doesn't sound much like Aristotle to me. What do you think?
