All is fish that comes to the literary net. Goethe puts his joys and sorrows into poems, I turn my adventures into bread and butter.

Louisa May Alcott

It's money and adventure and fame. It's the thrill of a lifetime and a long sea voyage that starts at six o'clock tomorrow morning.

Robert Armstrong

If we must lose wife or husband when we live to our highest right, we lose an unhappy marriage as well, and we gain ourselves. But if a marriage is born between two already self-discovered, what a lovely adventure begins, hurricanes and all!

Richard David Bach

It is a pleasure to stand upon the shore, and to see ships tost upon the sea: a pleasure to stand in the window of a castle, and to see a battle and the adventures thereof below: but no pleasure is comparable to standing upon the vantage ground of truth . . . and to see the errors, and wanderings, and mists, and tempests, in the vale below.

Sir Francis Bacon

To die will be an awfully big adventure.

Sir James Matthew Barrie

A garden should be in a constant state of fluid change, expansion, experiment, adventure; above all it should be an inquisitive, loving, but self - critical journey on the part of its owner.

Herbert Ernest Bates

Digging potatoes is always an adventure, somewhat akin to fishing. There is forever the possibility that the next cast - or the next thrust of the digging fork - will turn up a clunker.

Jerome Belanger

I have no use for adventures. They're nasty disturbing things that make you late for dinner.

Theodore Bilbo

The growing drama has outgrown such toys of simulated stature, face, and speech: It also peradventure may outgrow the simulation of the painted scene, boards, actors, prompters, gaslight, and costume, and take for a worthier stage the soul itself, its shifting fancies and celestial lights, with all its grand orchestral silences to keep the pauses of its rhythmic sounds.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Better to sink beneath the shock, than moulder piecemeal on the rock!

Lord Byron

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.

G. K. Chesterton

It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves - in finding themselves.

Andre Gide

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

Helen Keller

Adventure is not in the guidebook and Beauty is not on the map. Seek and ye shall find.


A life without adventure is likely to be unsatisfying, but a life in which adventure is allowed to take whatever form it will is sure to be short.

Bertrand Russell

A large volume of adventures may be grasped within this little span of life, by him who interests his heart in everything.

Laurence Sterne

If we do not find anything very pleasant, at least we shall find something new.


If we didn't live venturously, plucking the wild goat by the beard, and trembling over precipices, we should never be depressed, I've no doubt; but already should be faded, fatalistic and aged.

Virginia Woolf
