 Wisdom Quotes about Life and Adventure


A collection of inspirational wisdom, sayings and quotes on the subject of life and adventure.

Shirley McLaine once said: "I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I've written for myself ... and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part."

If we are truly spiritual beings having a human experience, then we can take it that our spiritual self is here to 'experience' as much as we can through the human vehicle - this includes to laugh, to love and to be loved, to give of ourselves, to receive, to experience life through our emotions - yes, even pain, because without pain and hardship we cannot have an understanding of love and happiness.

If we shrink from certain experiences just to feel 'safe', then we are not 'living buy only merely 'existing' and we miss out on the experience of 'being alive' and are not truly living at all.  So, if life is an adventure, then let's be bold and go out and actually LIVE!  Happy travelling!


We're the bridge across forever,
arching above the sea,
adventuring for our pleasure,
living mysteries for the fun of it,
choosing disasters, triumphs, challenges, impossible odds,
testing ourselves over and again,
learning love and love and LOVE!

~ Richard Bach (from "The Bridge Across Forever") ~
