The path of the adventurer is a path of joy - jlh


Adventurer

Fly Life on Free Wings, and Sing to its Glory.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
– Helen Keller

The most painful and debilitating fear is fear of the unknown.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We fear the unknown, perhaps more than we fear anything else, and yet we are, at heart, adventurers. We seek to expand our realm of knowledge and dominion. Perhaps we are attempting to overcome and crush the unknown, but our duel with the unknown is such a one-sided clash that we must know in our hearts that our adventure is no more than a child's game. Perhaps we hope that the unknown is like the darkness of a cave and that the brief light of our adventurer's candle can illuminate the entire cave. Nonetheless, the path of the adventurer is a path of joy, while the way of fear is one of suffering.

As Helen Keller says, Let life be an adventure. Live your life to the fullest, unfettered by fear of the ghosts and goblins of what might occur. Calamity and death happen as well to those who hide from life as to those who squeeze every drop of zest from it.
