The Danger Of A Secure Future (Quote)

Horizons - Maine, Jan 2011

“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future…..hence, there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon.”
~ Jon Krakauer from “Into the Wild”

The changing horizons within are far more profound, unstable and unknown than the horizons beyond the trees.

Thanks to Jessica L. for sharing the quote.
