Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.
Love your fucking life. Take pictures of everything. Tell people you love them. Talk to random strangers. Do things that you’re scared to do. Fuck it, because so many of us die and no one remembers a thing we did. Take your life and make it the best story in the world. Don’t waste that shit.
Equipped with his five senses man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure science.
Buy the ticket, take the ride.
Hunter S. Thompson
I like to remind myself of this powerrful quote every time I’m questioning wether I should go out (partying/ on an adventure/ hanging out with friends) or not.
But what makes this quote so powerful is that it comes from the legenday Hunter S. Thompson. Meaning: If you don’t get goosebumps reading this, you should probably go and read one (or preferably many more) books by Thompson!
If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It is lethal.
The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.
The one who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone, is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been.
Establishing goals is all right if you don’t let them deprive you of interesting detours.
Actually establishing goals is more than all right, it is awesome!
Having both, long term and short term goals keeps you motivated and focused. But it is true that you should not forget the beauty of spontaneous moments because of your strict focus.
Be prepared to take detours, to discover, to enjoy.
“Why not” is a slogan for an interesting life.
