I learned early that the richness of life is found in adventure.  Adventure calls on all the faculties of mind and spirit.  It develops self-reliance and independence.  Life then teems with excitement.  But man is not ready for adventure unless he is rid of fear.  For fear confines him and limits his scope.  He stays tethered by strings of doubt and indecision and has only a small and narrow world to explore.

Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked.  In a word, each man is questioned by life;  and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life;  to life he can only respond by being responsible.

The truth is, we know so little about life, we don’t really know what the good news is and what the bad news is.

The whole process of nature is an integrated process of immense complexity, and it’s really impossible to tell whether anything that happens in it is good or bad.

One thing life has taught me:  if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests.  They come to you.  When you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.
