"Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it."
"The only life worth living is the adventurous life. Of such a life the dominant characteristic is that it is unafraid. It is unafraid of what other people think…It does not adapt either its pace or its objectives to the pace and objectives of its neighbors. It thinks its own thoughts, it reads its own books. It develops its own hobbies, and it is governed by its own conscience. The herd may graze where it pleases or stampede where it pleases, but he who lives the adventurous life will remain unafraid when he finds himself alone."
"I enjoy talking to you. Your mind appeals to me."
"We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents."
"Don’t mistake my kindness for weakness. I’ll choke you with the same hand I fed you with."
"Don’t wait around for others to experience life with you. Take the lead, go out, and get the most out of life. Eventually, you’ll have more company than you can handle."
"To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure."
"I want a trouble-maker for a lover, blood spiller, blood drinker, a heart of flame, who quarrels with the sky and fights with fate, who burns like fire on the rushing sea."
