Share Your Favorite Quote

This quote has become one of my fav-orite quotes from one of my new fav-orite books, “Marquesa: A Time & Place With Fish” by Jeffrey Cardenas. (See my earlier blog on this book) You can say this quote summarizes my mantra:

“Six weeks alone on a houseboat surrounded by mangrove islands may seem a pedestrian outing compared to serious adventure travel. These days, adventure to me is not defined purely by the exotica quotient of the event. The true challenge is in finding a way to carve out quiet time from our increasingly frenetic lives.” – Jeffrey Cardenas

Send me your favorite quote from that nature writer you love, words that summarize your own mantra, or your mantra in your own works—who says one cannot quote themselves! Send ‘em over as comments, and I will post all the quotes soon.

    Hi Roger! Here is one of my favorite quotes, which I apply to skydiving (I guess it’s an appropriate outdoor activity lol!)

    “For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.”
    Leonardo da Vinci
