Quote for Today: Christopher McCandless


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 damaging 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.

    When we have to choose between uncertainty and boredom, we often choose the latter because of the fear of failure. One should prepare themselves to live with this uncertainty, otherwise they will not know what success is.

      And sooner or later, uncertainty strikes anyway. If we are out of practice with it, it hits even harder. Thanks for stopping by!
