An Adventurous Life

It seems a few people have been trying to find the following quote that I shared with my classes last week.  It's a good one!

"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 people think.  It does not adapt either its pace or its objectives to those of its neighbors.  It thinks its own thoughts, reads its own books, develops its own hobbies, and 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."

--Raymond B. Fosdick--
