The test of an adventure is that when you’re in the middle of it, you say to yourself, “Oh, now I’ve got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home.” And the sign that something’s wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure.
- Thornton Wilder

Falling in love is the right adventure for those who dislike sports and travel.
- Mason Cooley
For an occurrence to become an adventure, it is necessary and sufficient for one to recount it.
- Jean-Paul Sartre
They sicken of the calm, who knew the storm.
- Dorothy Parker
