Nature, time, and patience are the three great physicians.
Henry George Bohn
Nature has been for me, for as long as I remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure , and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion.

Passion, though a bad regulator, is a powerful spring.

Railway termini are our gates to the glorious and the unknown. Through them we pass out into adventure and sunshine, to them, alas! we return.
Edward M. Forster

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.
The policy of being too cautious is the greatest risk of all.
Risk, there is no real living without it. Die we all must, but try to knock all risk out of our lives and we lock ourselves tighter and tighter into a safe, comfortable, deadly box, and we die too, without ever having lived.
Risk is essential. There is no growth or inspiration in staying within what is safe and comfortable. Once you find out what is best, why not try something else?
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
T. S. Eliot
Everything is sweetened by risk.
You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.
