Adventure Quotes


I came across a web portal called ThinkExist.com that is essentially a massive collection of quotations and had a lot of fun with it. As our own site AdventureEscapades.co.za is primarily an adventure site, we relay some of the adventure activity or adventure experience inspired ones, penned by an interesting mix of characters.

“I like doing things that scare me. I went bungee jumping, but sky diving is just the sickest thing.” Leonardo DiCaprio

“One never dives into the water to save a drowning man more eagerly than when there are others present who dare not take the risk.” Friedrich Nietzsche

“If you spend more time talking about what you used to do, or did do, or can't do . . . you've reached that point in your life when skydiving is now a necessity.” Bill Purdin

“Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.”
Napoleon Bonaparte

“Contemplation often makes life miserable. We should act more, think less, and stop watching ourselves live.” Chamfort

“Shooting paintballs is not an art form” Bart Simpson

“Phil gets off work in ten minutes, and I've got twenty paintballs up in this ****. He's gonna die.” Bam Margera

“I don't know! I don't know why I did it, I don't know why I enjoyed it, and I don't know why I'll do it again!” Bart Simpson quote


You may have gathered that ThinkExist.com does contain a huge variety of contributors from great historical figures to modern day actors as well as cartoon icons. You can do a search by topic or author and some of the other Bart Simpson quotes, had me in absolute stitches, who knows, maybe they will make a good topic for tomorrows post. :)
