I cannot pick up the pieces with these broken fingers
Wake up the town, burn the bridges down
Wake up the town, build up the walls now
Build ‘em so tall, now I can’t get out
"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 person than a secure future. The very basic core of a person’s living spirit is their passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."
x Christopher McCandless in a letter to Ron Franz, April 1992
So true, but there is just one problem with this quote:
adventurous spirit within a person
core of a person’s living spirit
is their passion for adventure.
very true, very true. officially amending mr. mccandless’ letter, for all the non-men out there.
