Writers Quote Wednesday – ADVENTURE

8 Jun

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s edition of Writers Quote Wednesday! Today’s theme is ADVENTURE. This is perfect for me because I’m an adventurous person by nature. Even as a child I was willing to try new experiences and ideas––sometimes getting myself into trouble. Still, life is about moments and awesome moments don’t just fall on your lap you have to try new things, go outside your comfort zone, and take calculated risks.

“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.”

~Jawaharlal Nehru

“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”

~Oprah Winfrey

“Life is either a great adventure or nothing.”

~Helen Keller

“It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves – in finding themselves.”

~Andre Gide

“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

“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.”

~Julia Sawalha

    So very true we must take every opportunity to explore and experience life … Open ourselves up even to things that we may fear initially. In this way new doors are open which may leads us to places we may no have though possible.

    Sometimes taking a few risks lead to some things that at the time seemed to be bad but years later evoked some chuckles. If I never did it, my database of stories would be rather empty!

    I have never read an autobiography about a person who stayed at home all day.

      You’re right, if you don’t move and try different things you become stagnant.

    I agree so much with your last quote. I, too, would love to be in that world of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Magic and fantasy everywhere ❤
