“Spend a little more time trying to make something of yourself & a little less time trying to impress people.”
“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.”
“Go all the way with it. Do not back off. For once, go all the goddamn way with what matters.”
“You will come away bruised.
You will come away bruised
but this will give you poetry.”
