Marriage is a risk; I think it's a great and glorious risk, as long as you embark on the adventure in the same spirit. -Cate Blanchett

Muhammad is more human, more self-doubting, even self-tortured at times. His story is full of adventure, intrigue, betrayal. -Deepak Chopra

I had a huge advantage when I started 50 years ago – my job was secure. I didn't have to promote myself. These days there's far more pressure to make a mark, so the temptation is to make adventure television or personality shows. I hope the more didactic approach won't be lost. -David Attenborough

All in all, for someone who was immersed in, fascinated by, and dedicated to flight, I was disappointed by the wrinkle in history that had brought me along one generation late. I had missed all the great times and adventures in flight. -Neil Armstrong

Right now, I'm hankering for new adventures… Ninety percent of the time I'm having romantic-comedy fantasies in which I'm wearing little pencil skirts and hurrying down to the subway. -Mindy Kaling

I don't want to just do independent movies and I don't want to just do adventure films. I enjoy both, and I think both are cogent. -Nicolas Cage

It's great to be able to connect parents with children both emotionally and through humor. I look forward to exploring family entertainment once again and examining the specifics of our day-to-day lives against the backdrop of an extraordinary adventure. -Jon Favreau

I love action-adventure-type films – mythical adventures like 'Lord of the Rings' or superhero films like 'Batman.' -Zac Efron

It was my father who instilled the 'never say no' attitude I carry around with me today, and who instilled in me a sense of wonder, always taking us on adventures in the car, never telling us the destination. -Marlee Matlin

'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' is the best movie for a guy like me. A cerebral adventure. A moving story. A bunch of little green men. -Tom DeLonge

I'm on this extraordinary adventure, and if I have no one to talk to at the end of the night, I feel lonely. -Katy Perry

It's as great a part of the human adventure to invent things as to understand them. John Randall wasn't a great scientist, but he was a great inventor. There's been lots more like him, and it's a shame they don't get Nobel Prizes. -Freeman Dyson

Governments of rich countries spend some $6bn of tax money a year on disaster relief and development aid overseas, while each new earthquake, famine or tidal wave can attract 1,000 aid organisations, from the United Nations Children's Fund and Oxfam to the 'Jesus Brigades' of the American south and other charitable adventurers. -James Buchan

I think mostly it's the adventure that I will have in making the movie. That's what I look for. -Christian Bale

I get up in the morning looking for an adventure. -George Foreman

I like the idea of making a big, fun, adventure type of movie. -Dwayne Johnson

Very few recognize science as the high adventure it really is, the wildest of all explorations ever taken by human beings, the chance to glimpse things never seen before, the shrewdest maneuver for discovering how the world works. -Lewis Thomas

It's time to say goodbye, but I think goodbyes are sad and I'd much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure. -Ernie Harwell

I look on life as a joyous adventure. -Ernie Harwell

The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. -Christopher McCandless

To go into therapy is an adventure, not really to iron anything out. -Jeff Bridges

My career has been my craziest adventure. -Ray Romano

Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws of perspective, an eye unprejudiced by compositional logic, an eye which does not respond to the name of everything but which must know each object encountered in life through an adventure of perception. -Stan Brakhage

With 'The Mummy' it was a fantasy action adventure. You get taken away for a few hours and come out and feel revamped and ready to go into the world and enjoy your next day at work. -Luke Ford

Every time you make a movie it's an adventure. -Shia LaBeouf

My mother and father always supported my passion for acting. I think they just kind of expected me to move to New York and become an actress and have all these adventures. -Jennifer Garner

I left home when I was 16 because I was looking for adventure. -Gene Hackman

Today I still feel like the most illiterate person ever to have roamed the campuses of Wellesley and Harvard, where I later transferred. I remain intimidated by all the books I haven't read, but over the years I've come to realize that being a student is a lifelong adventure. -Elisabeth Shue

America's Facebook generation shows a submission to standardization that I haven't seen before. The American adventure has always been about people forgetting their former selves – Samuel Clemens became Mark Twain, Jack Kerouac went on the road. If they had a Facebook page, they wouldn't have been able to forget their former selves. -Jaron Lanier

I've always felt that the human-centered approach to computer science leads to more interesting, more exotic, more wild, and more heroic adventures than the machine-supremacy approach, where information is the highest goal. -Jaron Lanier

The next adventure is the government, a government of change. -Pier Luigi Bersani

Playing different characters in different films helps keep you excited about what you do. It always seems like a whole new adventure. -Abbie Cornish

'Aladdin' was probably my favorite Disney animation when I was a kid. The animation was great and Robin Williams was unbelievable as the Genie. 'Aladdin' was an amazing adventure and the lead character was a hero for guys, which I loved. It wasn't a princess or a girl beating the odds; it was a street rat. That seemed really cool to me. -Zachary Levi

I crave attention and adventure. -Eddie Cibrian

We found that our kids enjoy those simple adventures we take as a family. I'm driving, my wife's the copilot and we give one kid a choice of what they want to go do. We eat a lot of bad food and sleep in some interesting hotels. -Mark Consuelos

Years go by. I go here, I go there, I have all sorts of adventures, and then I look back and say, 'Wow that's kind of an unusual way to live your life.' -Roman Coppola

If what you know and what you love are the same thing, that's great. But if not, write what you love. I love history, secrets, conspiracies, action, adventure, international settings. -Steve Berry

My parents loved each other. I was raised in a house of total love and respect. My dad worked very hard and my mother was incredibly devoted to him. I can unequivocally, without any peradventure of doubt, tell you that I was raised with the kind of love that we only dream of. -James Woods

A love story, at least a convincing one, requires three elements – the lover, the beloved, and the adventures they have together. -Jane Smiley

It's always a surprise! This business is always an adventure. -Tony Hale

He's this amazing ambassador for all superheroes. What we've made as a film not only examines that but is also an amazing adventure story. It's been an honor to work on. As a comic book fan, Superman is like the Rosetta Stone of all superheroes. -Zack Snyder

I'm sure, to many people, my life is not that exciting, but to me every day is an adventure. -Angela Kinsey

My career as a magazine writer was largely prefaced on the idea of curiosity, to go on adventures and weasel my way into the lives of people that I admire. -John Hodgman

One person may need (or want) more leisure, another more work; one more adventure, another more security, and so on. It is this diversity that makes a country, indeed a state, a city, a church, or a family, healthy. 'One-size-fits-all,' and that size determined by the State has a name, and that name is 'slavery.' -David Mamet

As a bookish child in Calcutta, I used to thrill to the adventures of bad girls whose pursuit of happiness swept them outside the bounds of social decency. Tess of the d'Urbervilles, Emma Bovary and Anna Karenina lived large in my imagination. The naughty girls of Hollywood films flirted and knew how to drive. -Bharati Mukherjee

I'm a very professional man. I'm not out for the experience of adventure. -Werner Herzog

I saw a picture of Elvis in blue lame, and thought that if I could recreate that suit and walk down the King's Road in it, someone might pick me up and take me off on a crazy adventure. -Malcolm Mclaren

I want my job to include a little adventure, a little more of a heightened reality than what I'm actually living. And 'Castle' has that. He gets this opportunity to tail these homicide detectives, and he's driven by that. He's a little immature, but he's obviously loving life. -Nathan Fillion

I've always fantasized about being on TV. And I was. Then I fantasized about being in the movies. What could be better than captain of a space ship? I get to ride horses, shoot guns, have adventures. -Nathan Fillion

I try to get away. It's very unusual for me to be in one spot for so many months, which is one of the things I've had to get used to for a television show. I enjoy going on adventures and seeing the planet. -Stana Katic

When I moved out of London 13 years ago, I found a whole other reason not to drive. This was because my new husband Dan, unlike my dad, did drive, and this became a great source of fun and adventure. -Julie Burchill

While I was serving, I worked as an adventure training officer, teaching soldiers how to ski, canoe and climb. -Ranulph Fiennes

My dad is the type of person that says yes to life, and to the adventures it throws at you. Because of that, he never forced me into a particular career, or had wild expectations for me; his concern was simply that I was fulfilled and happy. -MyAnna Buring

I definitely like creative, exciting adventures. -Sarah Clarke

I hate 'The Professional.' It's one of the worst action/adventure movies ever made. -Shane Black

I lived in a tiny Midwest town, so I was always looking for adventure. -Kellan Lutz

Many people have compared me to the Victorian adventure writer, Rider Haggard. I accept that as a compliment. As a boy growing up in Central Africa I read all Haggard's African novels. -Wilbur Smith

I read all of Rider Haggard's books. For me he had the romance of Africa with a little bit of mysticism. I'm delighted to be looked on as his heir and be categorised as an adventure novelist because that's exactly what I am. -Wilbur Smith

'I Am Number Four' is an action-packed adventure entwined with a romantic story. I play the role of John Smith. John wants to be a normal kid, but he is from a different planet and he has been given this destiny of becoming a warrior. -Alex Pettyfer

To me, adventure has always been to me the connections and bounds you create with people when you're there. And you can have that anywhere. -Bear Grylls

I hang out all the time with kids and young scouts and I never meet kids who don't want adventure. -Bear Grylls

My work is all about adventure and teamwork in some of the most inhospitable jungles, mountains and deserts on the planet. If you aren't able to look after yourself and each other, then people die. -Bear Grylls

When launching a product called an Energy Drink and named Red Bull, a product that stimulates body and mind, it is a short step to the roots where Red Bull came from. We have been doing this for 20 years – now it's called adventure sports, extreme sports, and outdoor sports. -Dietrich Mateschitz

I suppose women are attracted to the bad-boy image sometimes because it's fun to have an adventure. It's like eating junk food… it's fun at the time, but ultimately not the best choice. -Dita Von Teese

Growing up, nobody I knew even knew a writer. So it was a big adventure and something that I've wrestled with my whole life. I think it's a journey worth taking, really finding out who you are and what you do well. -Candace Bushnell

In true-life dramas, you have to do so much research. It's a big responsibility to make sure things are as correct as possible. In 'Robin Hood', you have more artistic license – it's all action, adventure and reaction. This gives everyone a chance to make their characters their own and to make them believable. -Joanne Froggatt

'Stand By Me' was really great for me and my buddies; we'd all watch that together because that was us – we were down in the creek and hanging out every day and going on little adventures. I had about sixteen friends who are all about the same age as me and lived in a three-block radius. We spent our entire childhood down in that creek. -Scoot McNairy

As a spiritual person, nature for me has always been a healing place. Going back all the way to my childhood on the farm, the fields and forests were places of adventure and self-discovery. Animals were companions and friends, and the world moved at a slower, more rational pace than the bustling cities where I'd resided my adult life. -David Mixner

It is part of my responsibility as a bridge builder to speak the truth about what's great about America, what we've done right, and what our less glorious moments. And many people feel that the Iraq adventure, for example, has been one of our less glorious moments. -Feisal Abdul Rauf

I was an adventurer, and I got married a few times. I kept trying to find a relationship as good as my parents'. -Jacki Weaver

I am sort of an adventurer. I like to explore new places. I don't get to travel as often as I would like but I love it. -Edi Gathegi

My parents waited to have me and my sister – my dad was 43 when my mother had me, and my mom was 38. They purposefully waited until they had had their adventures in life so that we wouldn't represent the end of their freedom. -Christian Borle

Nabokov's adventures in language and style and naked braininess are really unparalleled. -Lorrie Moore

My life is an ongoing, ever changing adventure. -D. J. MacHale

I hope to keep writing journalism as long as I write fiction; it's afforded me such amazing adventures and opportunities. It does take a lot of time, so it's hard to do both at once, but I try to do a big journalism piece every couple of years, and I'll hopefully continue with that. -Jennifer Egan

I like a man who has a great curiosity and sense of adventure because that's the way I am. He has to have a willingness to be vulnerable and a willingness to see where the road takes us. And I want a man who is romantic. -Mary Frann

Being on the road is like a campout. I'm the only girl. The guys in my band are like my big brothers. It's definitely an adventure, but it can be a nomadic lifestyle. -Kate Voegele

Sendak's 1963 classic 'Where The Wild Things Are' has long been a favorite of mine because of the creative imagery, fantastic adventures and, most of all, because of how this timeless story shows us that children need to be free to roam, explore and invent in order to understand their place in the world that surrounds them. -Darell Hammond

The dirty little secret about adventure writing is that something has to go wrong. -Tim Cahill

I have no problem with the adventure travel movement. It makes better, more sensitive people. If you get people diving on a coral reef, they're going to become more respectful of the outdoors and more concerned with the threats that places like that face and they're going to care more about protecting them than they would have before. -Tim Cahill

As one of the first editors at 'Outside' magazine in 1975, it was my contention that most American writing going back to James Fennimore Cooper and then through Twain up to Hemingway had been outdoor writing. At that time, adventure writing meant stuff like 'Saga' or 'Argosy.' 'Death Race with the Jungle Leper Army!' That kind of thing. -Tim Cahill

For many years I thought my job was to go to places where it would be difficult for most of the readers to ever get to. Now, in the more than 20 years I've been doing this, the concept of adventure-travel trips or expeditions by groups has sprung up. The places I went 20 years ago now have adventure-travel trips. -Tim Cahill

For me, to find a place that doesn't have an organized tour going to it is becoming more and more difficult. A lot of times it involves danger of a political nature – places where the adventure-travel trips can't go because they can't get any liability insurance. -Tim Cahill

The last part of life is a spiritual concern. You need to find a context to put your life into, that will allow you to go through it with as much grace and balance as possible, even if there is rebellion and adventure and exploration and resistance. -James Cromwell

It may seem unfashionable to say so, but historians should seize the imagination as well as the intellect. History is, in a sense, a story, a narrative of adventure and of vision, of character and of incident. It is also a portrait of the great general drama of the human spirit. -Peter Ackroyd

Expand the definition of 'reading' to include non-fiction, humor, graphic novels, magazines, action adventure, and, yes, even websites. It's the pleasure of reading that counts; the focus will naturally broaden. A boy won't read shark books forever. -Jon Scieszka

These days young kids don't have any place to form an epic adventure. It's more often in front of the TV screen or a laptop. That's very hard on them. They're being taught daily unsocial skills. Facebook is an unsocial skill. It's so sad. -John Lydon

I didn't play or like a lot of board games as a child. I liked playing with my G.I. Joes and making up adventures for them. -Jonathan Ames

Men, in fact, are excited and looking forward to settling down and having families and being true partners with women in relationships that are full of excitement, unpredictability, adventure, and loyalty. -Ian K. Smith

I thought I was a pretty good writer, but I didn't have anything to write about. I wanted to go out in the world, have some adventures and then write about them. -Shane Smith

Capitalism is about adventurers who get harmed by their mistakes, not people who harm others with their mistakes. -Nassim Nicholas Taleb

All my work, really, is based on my brothers and sisters. I had so many adventures with them and a big part of the work is to recreate those. It's easy for me to be around a lot of people, because I can retreat. I can watch everything. -Ryan McGinley

My undergraduate degree was in history, and I wish I had been smart enough to really excel at maths, physics, chemistry or biology because… the voyagers and adventurers and real contributors – that's where they come from. -Michael Moritz

Instead of trying to make your life perfect, give yourself the freedom to make it an adventure, and go ever upward. -Drew Houston

I wrote for magazines. I wrote adventure stuff, I wrote for the 'National Enquirer,' I wrote advertising copy for cemeteries. -Walter Dean Myers

Being vegan is a glorious adventure. It touches every aspect of my life – my relationships, how I relate to the world. -Victoria Moran

I still have a Gypsy sense of adventure. I don't think I have slept in the same bed for more than three or four months my whole life. I am always planting vegetables that I never get to eat and flowers that I never see flower. I have always moved around the world. -Helen Mirren

I love making 'iCarly' – it's so much fun, and I love getting the script every week and not really knowing what insane thing I'm going to be doing. It's just like an adventure every episode; that's really fun. -Miranda Cosgrove

When I was a kid, 'Land of the Lost' was my favorite show, just because it was – in the landscape of Saturday morning cartoons – it was so unique. It was a live-action show and kids were in it, these creatures, these Sleestaks and dinosaurs. Every week was a different adventure. I couldn't wait. I loved it so much. -Will Ferrell

I'd love to do a PG-13 animated adventure. It would be great. -Gore Verbinski

I grew up in a bus, traveled with various circuses and freak shows. I was a trapeze artist, and that was my dream. We just traveled the whole world, me and my mom and my little brothers and sisters. It was an adventure. -Neon Hitch

I've always walked around with the sense that the world is not a safe place. I didn't get the spontaneous gene or the adventure one, really. After going through the day with its stresses, when I shut that door at night, I don't have to deal with anything but dinner, 'E.R.' and my bathrobe. -Caroline Knapp

It is unfortunate that so much of the history of Africa has been written by conquerors, foreigners, missionaries and adventurers. The Egyptians left the best record of their history written by local writers. -John Henrik Clarke

I definitely don't see myself as much of a singer, because my upbringing is really based around the guitar, learning chord progressions and that sort of thing. So the singing aspect of what I do has been a secondary adventure. -M. Ward

I don't have many friends. It's not because I'm a misanthrope. It's because I'm reserved. I'm self-contained. I get all my adventures in my head when I'm writing my books. -Ian Rankin

Sometimes, I get ideas from dreams. Often, my stories are based on adventures that I, or my friends, have actually lived. -Brian Jacques

Never say 'no' to adventures. Always say 'yes', otherwise you'll lead a very dull life. -Ian Fleming

It's not a real adventure when you have to pay for it. -Edmund Hillary

The spirit of adventure to embrace the new and the incredible belief in the power of invention attracted me to the Russian avant-garde. -Zaha Hadid

When I began my career as a flight attendant, I was a 21-year-old with a B.A. in English and stars in her eyes. I wanted to see every city in the world. I wanted to have adventures that, I hoped, would fuel a writing career some day. -Ann Hood

Life experience is what defines our character, even if it means getting your heart broken or being lied to. You know, you need the downs to appreciate the ups. Going on the adventure or taking that risk is important. -Nev Schulman

I do a lot of TV stuff, but I also turn a lot down – it's got to be an adventure. -Vanilla Ice

I started when I was 15 years old. And at that time, I was not thinking about changing the world, I was doing graffiti – writing my name everywhere, using the city as a canvas. I was going in the tunnels of Paris, on the rooftops with my friends. Each trip was an excursion, was an adventure. -JR

Within 18 months of my parents' marriage in 1900, my mother fell in love with an Englishman who would have described himself as a gentleman but who was, in fact, nothing more than a devious adventurer. -Paul Mellon

I will say that as I get older and calmer and quieter in my own self, the one quality in a woman that I find more and more attractive is kindness. A sense of adventure and humor is important too, but I truly find kindness and consideration for others to be the most attractive thing in anyone. -Colin Farrell

As a species, we've always been discoverers and adventurers, and space and the deep ocean are some of the last frontiers. -Paul Allen

I grew up as a fifth-generation Jew in the American South, at the confluence of two great storytelling traditions. After graduating from Yale in the 1980s, I moved to Japan. For young adventure seekers like myself, the white-hot Japanese miracle held a similar appeal as Russia in 1920s or Paris in the 1950s. -Bruce Feiler

As a young boy, I was very interested – as I still am – in all sorts of adventure and exploration. I thought about being an astronaut, a dinosaur scientist, or marine biologist, but I clearly was drawn to the ocean and to the water. -Brian Skerry

Sailing is the closest I can get to nature – it's adrenaline, fear, a constant challenge and learning experience, an adventure into the unknown. And of course there is nothing better than wearing the same T-shirt for days and not brushing my hair for weeks. -Daria Werbowy

I always like to look for adventure when I go away. I have gone on several horse adventures with my wife – from Guangxi we went up to the High Tibetan region. We also went along the Hurunui River on horseback in the South Island of New Zealand. -Antony Gormley

I'd like to be a cross between Bruce Parry and Keith Floyd. Someone with a sense of adventure who truly loves food. -Arthur Potts Dawson

My life and the life of my family has to do with exploration, with adventure. My grandfather was the first man in the stratosphere, and my father was the first to touch the deepest point in the ocean… For me, adventure and exploration is something in the blood. -Bertrand Piccard

To my mind, an adventure is something a person willingly undertakes. -Nathaniel Philbrick

A journey into space is the greatest adventure I can imagine. -Sarah Brightman

Conventional wisdom suggests the primary motivator for entrepreneurs is money or wealth creation and, in fact, much of the political debate tends to center around what kind of tax or regulatory policy changes will turn corporate suits into small business adventurers overnight. -Chip Conley

I suppose all fictional characters, especially in adventure or heroic fiction, at the end of the day are our dreams about ourselves. And sometimes they can be really revealing. -Alan Moore

Science is the greatest of all adventure stories, one that's been unfolding for thousands of years as we have sought to understand ourselves and our surroundings. -Brian Greene

The Congo was the most difficult shoot of my life but was also maybe the greatest adventure of my life. -Anthony Bourdain

Hong Kong is a wonderful, mixed-up town where you've got great food and adventure. First and foremost, it's a great place to experience China in a relatively accessible way. -Anthony Bourdain

I'm not a parenting expert. In fact, I'm not sure that I even believe in the idea of 'parenting experts.' I'm an engaged, imperfect parent and a passionate researcher. I'm an experienced mapmaker and a stumbling traveler. Like many of you, parenting is by far my boldest and most daring adventure. -Brene Brown

I'm a person with a lot of affection for adventure – I scuba dive, skydive, fly helicopters. -Sebastian Pinera

I believe God did intend, in giving us intelligence, to give us the opportunity to investigate and appreciate the wonders of His creation. He is not threatened by our scientific adventures. -Francis Collins

Youth is the spirit of adventure and awakening. It is a time of physical emerging when the body attains the vigor and good health that may ignore the caution of temperance. Youth is a period of timelessness when the horizons of age seem too distant to be noticed. -Ezra Taft Benson

'Star Trek' is a 'Wagon Train' concept – built around characters who travel to worlds 'similar' to our own, and meet the action-adventure-drama which become our stories. Their transportation is the cruiser 'S.S. Yorktown,' performing a well-defined and long-range Exploration-Science-Security mission which helps create our format. -Gene Roddenberry

NASA projects often have romantic names that link into a long history of exploration and adventure: Atlantis and Discovery, for example. -Hanna Rosin

I think I still have a great sense of adventure and trust, and am surprisingly idealistic given all the horrible things I've seen since I was 25. I think how I have changed is that I have a much deeper understanding of the dark forces in the world, of power. -Jacqueline Novogratz

We have to rise above bad fortune. We have to be in the good and enjoy the good, study and work and adventure and friendship and community and love. -Joshua Prager

The basic thing with adventure medicine or extreme medicine is that you are going to places where humans don't belong and people will certainly get into trouble. -Kenneth Kamler

If you're into a leather-jacketed crime fighter and his artificially intelligent robotic supercar, tune into 'The Good Wife.' If, on the other hand, you prefer the misadventures of a freelance itinerant trucker and his simian sidekick, check out 'The Walking Dead.' Or DVR them both and go talk to your family. -Dallas Roberts

I would love a combination of action/adventure and… love. And stories told with heart. I would like people to be invigorated as well as moved. People to see the movie and see that. I love to play, y'know, well-rounded characters. -Dennis Haysbert

I like action-adventure movies. -Ian Ziering

I'd like to be able to show 'Rapid Fire' to my dad. I'm that proud of what we've accomplished within the framework of the action-adventure formula. -Brandon Lee

Action-adventure, that genre, only works for me if you can care about the characters. If the hero's not taking some kind of a journey, then there are no stakes – and no stakes, then you don't care if he lives or dies, wins or loses. -Brandon Lee

I just happen to like the action-adventure movies. No law that says you can't work in all types of dramatic stuff. -Brandon Lee

Sometimes for a lot of new artists, they don't have a vision, really, or know what they want to say; it's kind of drawn out for them. But me, because I'm such a transcendental thinker, it's always like a journey and an adventure with each project. It's like going through a different doorway each time. -B.o.B

'Pair of Kings' is so much fun, literally. It is a very physical show with loads of stunts and green screen work, and you never know what great adventure is ahead of you! It's also a nice change in terms of being of similar ages to Doc Shaw and Mitchel Musso. -Kelsey Chow

Older men are wiser and that is much cooler to me. I've never been one for going out clubbing or getting off my head, so I always gravitated to men who were similar. They just tended to be older. I think you have more of an adventure with an older man. And a happier journey. -Emilia Fox

I want to be in 'The Hobbit.' I love fantasy and mythical adventure films. I believe in fairies and angels. I believe in nature's spirit, that there are other realms, other planets, life forms. -Julia Sawalha

I am not into action and adventure on holiday; that doesn't really do it for me. I would much rather go and lie down. -Keeley Hawes

We all have our ways of handling fear and managing trying; jumping in or climbing down, a direct approach or a delay, joyful or miserable, a spirit of adventure, or God help me, get this thing over with. -Kristin Armstrong

That's the great thing about being an actor: Stuff shows up that you never thought was going to go down. You get to play or experience an area of the world that – you know, I live a pretty simple life, I'm not much of an adventurer. I like my couch and my television. So when stuff comes up in the job, it's a good deal. -Justin Kirk

It's not just what Christian fiction lacks I appreciate – it's what it offers. The variety is vast: contemporary, historical, suspense, mysteries, adventure, young adult, romance, fantasy, science fiction. -Randy Alcorn

Life is an adventure, it's not a package tour. -Eckhart Tolle

I adore water, so it would be a real adventure to visit the Amazon before they chop down all the trees. -Michelle Ryan

I can't imagine myself doing something like 'Narnia' again. I would love to do something with Ridley Scott, you know, some action/adventure or something like that. But I'd also love to do a dramatic piece. It's really just whatever you read and take to. -William Moseley

I was always singing to myself, but I never ever performed, and I never told anyone I liked to sing. So it was a definitely a new adventure going in to audition for 'Glee.' -Jacob Artist

Acting has been really good me. You end up in some wild places, and I love adventure. -Martin Compston

Architects have to dream. We have to search for our Atlantises, to be explorers, adventurers, and yet to build responsibly and well. -Renzo Piano

I think in television and film, it's not usually the child's point of view. It's the story of an adult. If there's a child in a drama or an action-adventure movie, they're someone who needs to be saved, someone who needs to be protected, or if they're killed, someone who needs to be avenged. Their character doesn't matter much. -George R. R. Martin

I was motivated to improve the U.S. strategy of going back to the moon in 1985. That's a long time ago. Going back to the moon would be a great achievement for tourism adventure flights. -Buzz Aldrin

By refocusing our space program on Mars for America's future, we can restore the sense of wonder and adventure in space exploration that we knew in the summer of 1969. We won the moon race; now it's time for us to live and work on Mars, first on its moons and then on its surface. -Buzz Aldrin

The reason why bookstores are going out of business in the States is that people just can't focus on longer narratives now – even narrative film is in crisis in many ways, unless it's an adventure film. -Barbara Kruger

My parents taught me honesty, truth, compassion, kindness and how to care for people. Also, they encouraged me to take risks, to boldly go. They taught me that the greatest danger in life is not taking the adventure. -Brian Blessed

I've completed half of my space training at Space City in Moscow. I love adventure, and I've been training in a centrifuge and MiG Fighter with a view to going into space and being a spokesman for space exploration! -Brian Blessed

You can't call it an adventure unless it's tinged with danger. The greatest danger in life, though, is not taking the adventure at all. To have the objective of a life of ease is death. I think we've all got to go after our own Everest. -Brian Blessed

I have very vivid dreams – almost always action-adventure. I'm often on the run. I've always had dreams. When I was little, I'd go to sleep with my head on my hands, which were in fists like I was looking through a camera. I felt like sleep was the movies – just drifting off to the movies. -Sarah Silverman

I don't know if I always want to be in front of the camera. I love producing, I love the camaraderie. I love the adventures. I love the stress. -Sandra Bullock

I was very happy in Bombay. I was good at school. There was no reason to change anything. I suppose it must have been some spirit of adventure, of wanting to see the world. -Salman Rushdie

I like the idea of the adventurer's spirit. I think that is very much what a man searches for, in a certain way. -Jake Gyllenhaal

I was never a good student. I had to be dragged into kindergarten. It was hard to sit and listen to somebody talk. I wanted to be out, educated by experience and adventure, and I didn't know how to express that. -Robert Redford

I wanted to be an explorer, but gradually found the world had been explored and that there was nowhere left, really. Once they climbed Everest in 1953, when I was 10 years old, I thought, 'Well, that's pretty much it now.' But the idea of travelling and exploring and adventure was very strong. -Michael Palin

Every day's an adventure when I step out of my door. That's why I usually wear a hat and keep my head low. -Steve Buscemi

My parents made no money whatsoever, but they really knew how to see, as artists. So a big adventure might be, on a hot, dreadful day with no place to go, to go out and draw our chickens with pastels. My parents gave me a sense of wonder. -Ali MacGraw

Being sensitive to the problem of women is just another symptom of the quality of movies: I don't think you can do anything that's very sensitive. Everything's sort of broad strokes and big gestures – adventure things that boys, guys want to see. -Teri Garr

When I won the Oscar, I made a point of actively going against that and doing adventure films like 'Con Air' and 'Gone in 60 Seconds,' not what would be expected. -Nicolas Cage

Our greatest human adventure is the evolution of consciousness. We are in this life to enlarge the soul, liberate the spirit, and light up the brain. -Tom Robbins

I had spent my childhood making up adventures in my head. Then I realized when I went to acting school that there were adventures written down, and you could learn lines, and you could do the adventures for real, not just in your head. -Nancy Marchand

I grew up in a house my parents built together on a mountain in Tennessee. When we moved in, the walls were still going up, we didn't have hot water, and we turned it into an amazing adventure. -Rachel Boston

I moved from a mountain with one traffic light to New York City when I was 17, and it was an amazing, eye opening, creative adventure. I would walk through the streets of Manhattan looking up at these huge buildings, amazed that I didn't know a single person in any of them. -Rachel Boston

I began doing writing projects and art and design projects to explore a new way of seeing Canada. Roots is one more way of continuing this exploration. I want to present a wide-open Canadian sense of color, adventure, communication and openness that defines our country. -Douglas Coupland

I want to spend my life with someone and do nice things and go on adventures, read books and have nice food and celebrate things. I don't want to spend the rest of my life in the bedroom like some people who just go to bed and never get out again. -Tracey Emin

The strongest moments in my life are when I'm filming. It's an adventure. As an actor I try to seduce someone, try to share something. The rest of my time is spent exploring experiences with women. -Jean-Pierre Leaud

To me, the great joy of writing is discovering. Most writers are told to write about what they know, but I still love the adventure of going out and reporting on things I don't know about. -Tom Wolfe

Writing a novel is a huge adventure; when it's going well it's more fun than fun. When it stutters to a halt put it aside. Go for a swim, go for a walk, take a week off. Don't panic or be afraid; you and your characters are in it together. Trust them to come to your rescue. -Deborah Moggach

I do believe that we baby-boomers are reinventing ageing as we enter it. We're living longer and expecting more from life; the success of 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,' and other films and novels about finding love late in life, have shown that if we're up for it, there are adventures awaiting us. -Deborah Moggach

I climbed nine mountains because I love adventure, and I got addicted to that feeling and I never wanted to stop. I wanted to see what I could accomplish. I finally can say that I stood on top of the world. -Raha Moharrak

The Zionists are very much, very adventuresome, very much seeking to fabricate things, and I think they see themselves at the end of the line, and I do firmly believe that they seek to create new opportunities for themselves and their adventurous behaviors. -Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

I think risk-taking is a great adventure. And life should be full of adventures. -Herbie Hancock

My father was a really sharp cartoonist and filmmaker. He used to tape-record the family surreptitiously, either while we were driving around or at dinner, and in 1963 he and I made up a story about a brother and a sister, Lisa and Matt, having an adventure out in the woods with animals. -Matt Groening

My self-publishing adventure led to my work being picked up by a traditional publisher and eventually hitting the bestseller lists. That led to two more bestselling novels. -Ashwin Sanghi

There are those people that eat to live and those that live to eat. I am of the latter, as many of you already know. To me, eating is an adventure. -Rachel Nichols

I do not outline. There are writers I know and count as my friends who certainly do it the other way, but for me, part of the adventure is not knowing how it's going to turn out. -Joyce Maynard

I grew up listening in awe to stories of their wartime adventures. My granny, Joan, was a journalist and wrote amazing letters to my grandpa when he was a prisoner of war, while my nana, Mary, was a Land Girl, then a Wren. They were so independent, resilient and glamorous. -Laura Carmichael

You have to think of your brand as a kind of myth. A myth is a compelling story that is archetypal, if you know the teachings of Carl Jung. It has to have emotional content and all the themes of a great story: mystery, magic, adventure, intrigue, conflicts, contradiction, paradox. -Deepak Chopra

I find age such a foreign concept. I have to be reminded. I still have the extraordinary feeling of adventure, striking out into unknown fields. -William Shatner

I have always loved and avidly read the novels of Jack London, Jules Verne and Ernest Hemingway. The characters depicted in their books, who are brave and resourceful people embarking on exciting adventures, definitely shaped my inner self and nourished my love for the outdoors. -Vladimir Putin

In New York, the street adventures are incredible. There are a thousand stories in a single block. You see the stories in the people's faces. You hear the songs immediately. Here in Los Angeles, there are less characters because they're all inside automobiles. -Joni Mitchell

With the recent addition of a full soundtrack and the players map, millions of Poptropicans around the globe are now fully immersed in a multimedia gaming experience when they embark on our high quality adventures. -Jeff Kinney

When kids get stuck on one of our quests, we now have an app for that. It is so cool to know that now kids can use mobile technology to learn more about Poptropica's great adventures and solve its challenging quests. -Jeff Kinney

When I'm not shooting, I love going on adventures with friends. I love zip-lining through rainforests and different natural habitats, and I love writing music on the side, and I love drinking coffee. I'm a big coffee drinker and go to a lot of cafes and stuff. -Max Schneider

Ever since the morning of May 29, 1953, when Tenzing Norgay and I became the first climbers to step onto the summit of Mount Everest, I've been called a great adventurer. -Edmund Hillary

Colonialism bred an innate arrogance, but when you undertake that sort of imperial adventure, that arrogance gives way to a feeling of accommodativeness. You take pride in your openness. -Wole Soyinka

The best of life is to embark on an adventure with a woman interested in having an adventure with you. -Oleg Cassini

I love Sherlock Holmes, but I love any of these old stories where the writer was paid by the word, so the adventures just continue forever. They are almost like they were meant to be read out loud. -Biz Stone

'Life Aquatic' was the first movie I did, and it's been an incredible adventure since then. -Waris Ahluwalia

I've always thought photography was a bit of an adventure, so to come home with the film, develop it, then look at the results has more of a sense of excitement. -Anton Corbijn

Filming in India was one big adventure. For 'The Cheetah Girls', we were in Mumbai for two weeks, then Rajasthan for six weeks. Every day after shooting, I would hop into a rickshaw and start exploring the city. I even learned a bit of Hindi. It's such an amazing place to visit. -Michael Steger

My primary goal of hacking was the intellectual curiosity, the seduction of adventure. -Kevin Mitnick

'Iron' Mike Tyson is the last boxer who was truly embraced by the media. They followed him around. You didn't know what he was going to do next: bite you, cut you, fight you. When you think about it, that defines him – it was an exciting adventure. -George Foreman

The 'Kickin' It' set is so much fun, I find myself in a new adventure every week. I work with an amazing cast and crew. -Olivia Holt

My best advice for writers is: Have your adventures, make your mistakes, and choose your friends poorly – all these make for great stories. -Chuck Palahniuk

I think, in Japan, animation isn't relegated to being a genre unto itself. It's just a medium by which you can tell any number of stories, be it horror or action or adventure or drama or whatever, and we're trying to do that as well. Every film that you go see from Pixar, we're hoping is a little bit of a surprise. -Pete Docter

I myself was born beside a river – the Avon in Sarum. So when I first encountered New York's great harbor and the Hudson River as a teenager, and came to understand their historic canal and railroad links to the vast spaces of the Midwest, I felt both the thrill of a new adventure and a deep sense of homecoming. -Edward Rutherfurd

What was I like in 1966? I was 19 years old, very confident, and life was a big adventure. -Diana Quick

Everyone loves good looks, but personality is what sells for me. I want someone to have fun and go on adventures with. I do like guys with tattoos, though. -Hayley Hasselhoff

I kind of viewed '50/ 50' and 'Warm Bodies' both as my next films after 'The Wackness.' In my head, I was just like, 'I'll try the big, fun, adventure-weird movie, and I'll do the small, heartfelt comedy-drama, and one of them will probably work out, and I'll get to work more.' -Jonathan Levine

Writing is a marvelous adventure and very labor-intensive: those words run away and try to escape. They are very difficult to capture. -Eduardo Galeano

All my books are adventures, but they also have a social viewpoint. -Anatoly Rybakov

We've all heard about space and landing on the moon, but somehow it's a very tom-boyish adventure. It's planting the flag on the moon by Neil Armstrong, and it has this very male-hero edge to it. -Lily Koppel

After reading Graham Greene and Joseph Conrad when I was a student at Yale, I wanted to live in the world they captured in their books. I had had some experience living in Africa. I was drawn to that kind of adventure. -Leslie Cockburn

I'm from northern Virginia, but I grew up next to the West Virginia border, so it was hills and farmland. We had that sense of adventure you get from growing up around old farmhouses and lazy, rolling hills, you know? -Hilarie Burton

Eventually, competition and adventure wane, and I enter my ibuprofen phase. Tweaky hamstrings and achy knees restrict mileage, but I continue running for health, sanity, and the ritual of a Sunday trail run with like-minded buddies. We discuss the nagging injuries that bedevil us, and remember the good old days when we were kings. -Don Kardong

There was something so immensely redemptive and exciting for me to imagine that my unknown father was not just a man who had abandoned me but a noble man of adventure who had no choice. -Said Sayrafiezadeh

The notion of 'world leadership' is a curiously archaic one. The very phrase is redolent of Kipling ballads and James Bondian adventures. What makes a country a world leader? Is it population, in which case India is on course to top the charts, overtaking China as the world's most populous country by 2034? -Shashi Tharoor

If you have to write a fictional adventure to convey a philosophy of evil, the best person is the destroyer of evil himself, Lord Shiva. -Amish Tripathi

There's an interesting mix to 'Robin Hood' because it's kind of modern but medieval. There is a blend of adventure with a very modern feel. -Joanne Froggatt

I've never looked at film-making as a career. I've looked on film-making as an adventure. When you come down the mountain, you get ready to climb again. -Shekhar Kapur

I am not possessive at all. In every relationship I have had, the girl has left me. And the fundamental complaint has been that I am self-contained. I am just comfortable with myself and am always on an adventure. -Shekhar Kapur

I'm not sure who I am. That's why I keep saying I'm an adventurer that goes out. -Shekhar Kapur

I gave up the idea of having a career when I was 24. Sounds glamorous, but I've been doing things since then, and part of those adventures was to make films because I realised I was actually quite good at it and I enjoyed it. -Shekhar Kapur

Filmmaking is a great adventure. I'm as excited as a kid to be given tickets to fly suddenly to England, South Africa, America, everywhere. I'm still a 13-year-old kid, flying. -Shekhar Kapur

Jewish history turns out not to be an either/or story – as in, either pure Judaism detached from its surroundings or else assimilation – but rather, for the vast majority, the adventure of living in between. -Simon Schama

Soccer presented no challenge to me. Playing felt like breathing: I always had a magical connection to the ball. But it didn't feel like an adventure. Music was more of a challenge and, in the end, felt more interesting. -Pete Wentz

Dickinson is my hero because she was a joker, because she would never explain, because as a poet she confronted pain, dread and death, and because she was capable of speaking of those matters with both levity and seriousness. She's my hero because she was a metaphysical adventurer. -Helen Oyeyemi

I was always interested in the possibility maybe of finding my way into a big adventure. -Trenton Lee Stewart

For many, the icon of the British Museum is the Rosetta Stone, that administrative by-product of the Greek imperial adventure in Africa. -Neil MacGregor

Of course there is still unexplored terrestrial territory, but most of it is waterlogged. Submersed secret places, such as the Challenger Deep, which today lure hi-tech adventurers like Richard Branson and James Cameron, will undoubtedly provide welcome fodder for 'National Geographic.' -Seth Shostak

Ever since I was nine years old and I watched Neil and Buzz walk on the moon, I have felt passionately that this is an interesting human adventure. This is one of the things we're doing that is really fundamentally important, as we leave our home planet, but also exciting. -Chris Hadfield

When I did 'Bird,' it was a surprise to some people, first because I wasn't in it and second because most of the films I'd been doing were cop movies or westerns or adventure films, so to be doing one about Charlie Parker, who was a great influence on American music, was a great thrill for me. -Clint Eastwood

There's a great sense of achievement, testosterone, fun, being able to live out your masculinity when you play an action role or an action-adventure or a real tough-guy role. -Gerard Butler

It is not a very difficult task to make what is commonly called an amusing book of travels. Any one who will tell, with a reasonable degree of graphic effect, what he has seen, will not fail to carry the reader with him; for the interest we all feel in personal adventure is, of itself, success. -James Fenimore Cooper

I really wanted to write an adventure story, a murder-mystery that was set during the gold-rush years in New Zealand. -Eleanor Catton

I certainly have played women who have a pioneer spirit and longing for adventure. -Kate Baldwin

If you like the outdoors, Colorado is a big adventure playground for adults: it's great for skiing, cycling, climbing, and hiking. -Tyler Hamilton

I went to Alaska as a young man just looking for adventure. And like so many of us in the '70s, we found it. -Tom Bodett

Shopping in the right kind of stores and looking for healthier foods can be a wonderful adventure to health. -Jane Velez-Mitchell

There's two tiers of science fiction: the McDonalds sci-fi like Star Trek, where they have an adventure and solve it before the last commercial, and there are books that once you've read, you never look at the world the same way again. -David Gerrold

Study what you love, and you'll never have to work a day in your life. It'll be one great adventure. -David Gerrold

In our interconnected world, novel technology could empower just one fanatic, or some weirdo with a mindset of those who now design computer viruses, to trigger some kind of disaster. Indeed, catastrophe could arise simply from technical misadventure – error rather than terror. -Martin Rees

Anytime I feel lost, I pull out a map and stare. I stare until I have reminded myself that life is a giant adventure, so much to do, to see. -Angelina Jolie

I want to work; then, as my kids get older, I want to have adventures. I want to visit all their countries: learn and live inside all their cultures. -Angelina Jolie

Every day is an adventure. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

I don't know about relationships. Maybe I'm supposed to travel and make films and meet people and have adventures instead. -Alexandra Cassavetes

I have taken some hits here and there, but I've been most damaged carrying my little terrier to bed, and I broke my hip turning off the lamp. I've been nicked a few times, but he put me out of business. So life is a very strange adventure. -David Douglas Duncan

You know that I had heard so many times people say things like, 'You could never write 'Harry Potter' and have it be about Harriett Potter because nobody would read it; people only want to read an adventure story if it's about a boy,' and I thought, 'I don't think that's true.' -Cassandra Clare

I like to go to the gym with my girls, practice yoga, try new recipes, bake, have slumber parties, go to the beach, have adventures, book hunt, shop for new records, or road trip somewhere… anything that keeps me laughing and excited about the day, really. I like feeling free to do what I or my friends want to do on our days off. -Lindsay Pearce

With '10,000,' our aim was to make a film that was entertaining and a roller-coaster ride; it is what it is. It's an adventure film. -Steven Strait

My hometown I grew up in in Michigan is really tiny, and they are so excited for all of my adventures my whole life. -Toni Trucks

I was alone as a child. I lived in fairytales, adventures, Shakespeare. They are the friends, my books. -Alejandro Jodorowsky

I think 'Paranorman' was a great adventure. -Kodi Smit-McPhee

Moving around a lot allows you to experience many different cultures and learn about the ways that different people in different parts of the country live, and it probably made me somewhat more adventuresome and allowed me to meet my future wife in Pensacola. -Alan G. Poindexter

My costar James Lafferty, and his little brother Stuart Lafferty, and another buddy of ours, Ian Shive, are working on this project called 'Generation Wild.' It's about getting people to realize that being outdoors is not scary – you can go on adventures like we do, in national parks, and practically in your own backyard. -Stephen Colletti

I love the possibility that anything can happen in any moment with acting. That you have the opportunity to experience lives and adventures that you may not have otherwise. -Genevieve Padalecki

My most cherished desire is to help our women come out of their routine chores and infuse in them the indefatigable spirit of adventure. -Samina Baig

There are 30,000 days in your life. When I was 24, I realized I'm almost 9,000 days down. There are no warm-ups, no practice rounds, no reset buttons. Your biggest risk isn't failing, it's getting too comfortable. Every day, we're writing a few more words of a story. I wanted my story to be an adventure and that's made all the difference. -Drew Houston

'A Valley Without Wind' takes the idea of dungeon crawls and throws it on its head by casting you as a magic user in this 2D platforming labyrinth of a world. From NPC's to rescue, spells to learn, and a whole civilization you practically need to build back from scratch, this adventure takes to a new world where few other games dare to go. -Rob Manuel

'Botanicula' tells the story of a group of twigs, nuts, and leaves trying to escape with the life essence of a tree in tow before nasties from another world destroy them and everything else in their path. Yes, it's a point-and-click adventure game, but behind every click, there's a bit of joy to be found. Bugs sing. Bees dance. -Rob Manuel

There was a movie called 'Hawk the Slayer' when I was a kid. I think only three people saw it, but me and my brother saw it. I remember when I was a kid thinking that's kind of cool. It was just this sort of action adventure-y sort of thing. -Sean Maguire

When I began work on my first book, 'The River of Doubt,' which tells the story of Theodore Roosevelt's 1914 descent of an unmapped river in the Amazon rainforest, I thought of it as a tale of adventure, exploration and extraordinary courage. -Candice Millard

For about two years, I was a little wild. I was out partying, having adventures. -Jeremy Miller

Beyond its romance, 'Titanic' offers an indelibly wrenching story of blind arrogance and its terrible consequences. It's the rare Hollywood adventure film that brings mythic images of tragedy – the fall of Icarus, the ruin of Ozymandias – so easily to mind. -Janet Maslin

My dad loved Scotland, so we would pile into his caravan and head for the Highlands, to Fort William and Loch Ness. It was such an adventure – my siblings and I were allowed to roam and explore the local beaches. We loved the freedom of those trips. -Rick Astley

I've done drives through Budapest and Oslo and used to drive to Sardinia, too, which is quite a journey. Drives are an adventure because I don't plan them too carefully. I take detours depending on how I feel and usually stop and stay at places I like the look of. -Rick Astley

I'm always looking for that sense of fun and adventure and even unlikeability. I don't want to be the obvious leading lady. I have the most fun playing these girls who are a little damaged and maybe a little insecure and trying to overcompensate for it. -Becki Newton

Who was Amanda Knox? Was she a fresh-faced honor student from Seattle who met anyone's definition of an all-American girl – attractive, athletic, smart, hard-working, adventuresome, in love with languages and travel? Or was her pretty face a mask, a duplicitous cover for a depraved soul? -Tina Brown

My temperament is not the adventuresome sort that enjoys starting new projects every six months. I love ensemble, nine-to-five stability. There's a family dynamic in making a television show that you don't get on a movie, where you're a hired gun for a few months. -Ted Danson

Everyone is an entrepreneur. The only skills you need to be an entrepreneur: an ability to fail, an ability to have ideas, to sell those ideas, to execute on those ideas, and to be persistent so even as you fail you learn and move onto the next adventure. -James Altucher

It seems to me that whatever path you choose to take, in the end its up to each of us to try, test and live what we find out, to apply it and see what actually works, and that's the exciting and challenging part of this very real adventure. -Linus Roache

When you agree to work with a filmmaker, it's important that you accept their world. It's an adventure. I like that. I throw myself into the director's arms, into their universe. -Tahar Rahim

The most common criticism I've seen is that I write 'popcorn fantasy:' lightweight action-adventure. Some people call it that as they explain why they love it for exactly that reason. I'm cool with that, either way. I just nod and let it go. -R. A. Salvatore

I didn't start out angry. I started out a young man wanting adventure. -Andrew Vachss

I love adventures. -Elizabeth Holmes

'The Desolation of Smaug' stands alone as an action/adventure epic movie. It's visually stunning, and the 3D is incredible. Plus, it's directed by Peter Jackson, and he's extraordinary. -Luke Evans

I think 'Lost in Space' certainly shifted from being an ensemble adventure series about a family facing the unknown alien environment to this trio of comedians – Dr. Smith, the Robot, and Will Robinson being the straight guy. It definitely changed its tone over the three seasons and 84 episodes we did. -Bill Mumy

All my books reflect travel adventures of some kind, and all have a soul: a spiritual or mystical underpinning. -O. R. Melling

I was gifted with a life that was full of adventure. I've always believed, if you're gifted, that it's incumbent not to think about giving something back. -Bob Weir

Men want a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue. That is what is written in their hearts. That is what little boys play at. That is what men's movies are about. You just see it. It is undeniable. -John Eldredge

A woman wants to be romanced. She wants to be an essential part of a great adventure; she wants a beauty to unveil. That is what little girls play at, and those are the movies women love and the stories that they love. -John Eldredge

Space tourism is a logical outgrowth of the adventure tourist market. -Buzz Aldrin

As we begin to have landings on the moon, we can alternate those with vertical launch of similar crew modules on similar launch vehicles for vertical-launch tourism in space, if you want to call it that… adventure travel. -Buzz Aldrin

'Anthony and the Magic Picture Frame' tells it like it really was in America's early space program – the adventure, the risks, and the rewards. -Buzz Aldrin

I went to 11 different schools. It was a fantastic adventure, but I was incredibly sensitive and needed a bit more stability. -Lykke Li

Because I once became so distraught watching the film 'Watership Down,' my parents were happier to let me watch action adventures featuring humans and warriors rather than cute animals. -Rhianna Pratchett

The pursuit of natural knowledge, the investigation of the world – mental and material – in which we live, is not a dull and spiritless affair: rather is it a voyage of adventure of the human mind, a holiday for reckless and imaginative souls. -Archibald Hill

Perhaps the spirit of adventure, be it mental or material adventure, is a factor so essential in human progress that no emphasis of it is undue. -Archibald Hill

I was ten years old in 1969, and while we lived in Arizona that year, I spent most of the summer staying with family friends in Portland, Oregon while my parents visited Spain. It was an adventure all around. -Patrick Nielsen Hayden

I regret not working harder to create true friendships with other couples, not seeking out people with whom to go do things and go places – people with whom to have a few crazy, memorable bonding adventures. -Robin Marantz Henig

Instead of inventing imaginary friends, I invented whole imaginary worlds. They were elaborate scenarios about spies and adventurers and top secret missions. I crawled along my swing set, searching for escape routes from my maximum-security prison; I biked through the neighborhood, the wind in my hair and a fleet of evildoers on my heels. -Robin Wasserman

The whole atmosphere of the book, the tone of 'The Hobbit,' is of a kid's adventure story, told in the first person by Tolkien, who is introducing young people to the notion of Middle-earth. A lot of it is very light-hearted. -Ian Mckellen

The narrative that Peter Jackson has put into 'The Battle of the Five Armies,' it stands alone as a film. Rather than just finishing off the story, it's like a whole new adventure all of its own. I'm very excited about it. -Richard C. Armitage

I decided to take my foot off the pedal with all the detail. I'm sure after 'Animalia' and 'The Eleventh Hour,' readers thought that's what to expect from Graeme Base. With 'The Sign of the Seahorse,' I took a step away from the puzzle-book genre – that was more of an adventure story. -Graeme Base

Writing is like a rollercoaster ride for me, an adventure. I love exploring the world through 'playing' people who are absolutely nothing like me. -Karen Traviss

I don't try to write songs that will further my career. I write about things that I care about. I don't have a career as much as I'm having an adventure with a guitar. I never liked the business way of doing it. You have to follow some sort of instinct. -Jerry Jeff Walker

Moving is easy, exciting, an adventure – when you're young. Later, not so much. I love Massachusetts, my old home. Sometimes, late at night, I even study the real estate ads in my old hometown. But it's not even a fantasy. My parents are both gone. The world I left doesn't exist anymore. Neither does the person I was. -Susan Estrich

My favorite group growing up was 'The Hobbit.' It was the first book I actually finished. One of those adventure things that takes you to that land and it will forever hold a special place in my heart. I am not a huge book reader. -Luke Mitchell

In Ronald Reagan's chaotic childhood, the imagination was armor. There is nothing unusual about that; transcending the doubts, hesitations, and fears swirling around you by casting yourself internally as the hero of your own adventure story is a characteristic psychic defense mechanism of the Boy Who Disappears. -Rick Perlstein

I've been under the spell of the North ever since my childhood in Alaska. More and more, I've been returning to Alaska, and sometimes my adventures inspire a story. -Will Hobbs

Anything new is a sort of adventure – as a child, I think I was quite bad at tackling new experiences, like unusual foods, and I hated new clothes or having my hair cut. -Mini Grey

A traveler is really not someone who crosses ground so much as someone who is always hungry for the next challenge and adventure. -Pico Iyer

Not having a car gives me volumes not to think or worry about, and makes walks around the neighborhood a daily adventure. -Pico Iyer

Sometimes just being on a beach with my loved ones is all the adventure I need. I am a happy camper and continue to be a citizen of the world. I have yet to discover other cultures, other peoples' dreams and treasures. I will always be a traveler who is discovering beautiful Gaia. -Guy Laliberte

Life is full of adventure. There's no such thing as a clear pathway. -Guy Laliberte

I found myself doing all these action-adventure movies, and it's been a fantastic experience, and I've learnt a lot. -Orlando Bloom

What I'd love to do would be to bring a person from the past to me. In that case I'd pick Jane Austen, because I'd like to know what really made her tick. It's my opinion that she was inhibited by her family and a desire to do the right thing. Away from all that, I believe she'd show new facets and enjoy the adventure. -Jo Beverley

To all my soap fans out there, my horror fanatics, comedy lovers, I will tell you this: 'Death Valley' is an action-packed drama, comedic, horror TV series that has a non-stop adventure in each episode. It's like a huge pot of Texas gumbo. If you like all four of those genres, then you'll love this show. -Texas Battle

The first 'Polly and the Pirates' is about a prim and proper girl who gets kidnapped out of her comfy boarding school by a bunch of pirates that think she's the daughter of their long lost queen. In the course of the adventure, she discovers she has a natural penchant for swashbuckling, despite her sheltered childhood. -Ted Naifeh

When people think girl adventurers, they tend to think of a spunky, plucky tom-boy with a chip on her shoulder. I'm not saying that this makes for a dull character, but I think other types of adventurous girls exist. It's easy to fall into well-established tropes, believing that the tropes of a genre define the genre itself. -Ted Naifeh

Each one seems to be, in some way, essentially different from the others, and each is a surprise to me. I think that making books, or any kind of art, might also be like mining. The artist digs into his or her life and imagination and never knows what they'll find. That's the adventure. -Mordicai Gerstein

It seems that Argentina is incapable of looking critically at its tragic military adventure in the Falklands. -Pepe Eliaschev

'Jurassic Park' movies don't fit into a specific genre. They're sci-fi adventures that also have to be funny, emotional, and scary as hell. That takes a lot of construction, but it can't feel designed. -Colin Trevorrow

The war broke out, and I wanted to do something to aid my country in a time of crisis. I was too tall for the WACs and WAVES, but eventually joined the OSS and set out into the world looking for adventure. -Julia Child

I am a novelist turned temporary adventurer, and I chose to write television, movies and plays for much the same reason that Henry Morgan selected the Spanish Main for his peculiar – and not dissimilar – sphere of operations. -Gore Vidal

Life's the adventure. You don't have to drop your bundle and go bush. It's about being brave within the context that you're in. -Robyn Davidson

A certain point came when I wanted to document growing-up adventures. -Suki Waterhouse

I think I'm trouble-adjacent. I remember hearing once that good girls don't get caught. I think that's sort of a lot of what my teen years were like. I skirted the stuff that other kids were doing because the idea of actually getting in trouble was not appealing to me, but I still wanted to have adventures. -Anna Kendrick

I joined the Marines the week I turned 17, and that led to a few experiences that might qualify as adventure – eye of the beholder. -Daniel Woodrell

Life's supposed to be an adventure, a surprise! -Anton du Beke

I remember my first night in L.A. I was sitting outside, looking out at the city and thinking, 'I don't know anyone.' I just approached it as a big adventure. I still think of it that way. -Luke Bracey

Growing up in a rural setting in Minnesota, I was raised with the outdoors and a sense of adventure. -Ann Bancroft

I'm a happy camper when I'm doing both: writing and art every day, along with a dose of reading and adventures into what else is being done by other artists/writers and poets. Like breathing. I've written poems or fictions to go with a painting. The source for the inspiration of the art often eludes me. -Marge Simon

I don't think many of us face the same sort of physical adventures our ancestors did, at least not on a daily basis. -Jim Murphy

In a television interview, I said that diversity in our children's books should include the adventures of disabled children, travellers and gipsies, LGBT teens, different cultures, classes, colours, religions. It shouldn't be a token gesture, nor do such stories need to be 'issue-based'. -Malorie Blackman

I would love to live in 'The Lord of the Rings.' J. R. R. Tolkien's world is so vivid and rich and sensual. I love the country setting and the routine of the hobbits. Of course, I would like to be a hobbit who goes on small adventures – not huge, horrifying ones like Frodo's quest. -Mary Pope Osborne

I think the reason I'm a writer is because first, I was a reader. I loved to read. I read a lot of adventure stories and mystery books, and I have wonderful memories of my mom reading picture books aloud to me. I learned that words are powerful. -Andrew Clements

I know what it feels like to be bullied, and I will not tolerate the thought of anyone, for any reason, being bullied. It starts with young people and can end with young people. As we learn to embrace our diversity, we become stronger, more tolerant. The differences are beautiful. The differences matter. It's what makes life an adventure. -Ryan Potter

I am very much looking forward to new adventures – including, I hope, Broadway – sooner rather than later. -Kenneth Branagh

Human progress has always been driven by a sense of adventure and unconventional thinking. -Andre Geim

The biggest adventure is to move into an area in which you are not an expert. Sometimes I joke that I am not interested in doing re-search, only search. -Andre Geim

I like to show ordinary people reacting to extraordinary circumstances. It's an opportunity for adventure, and I like women to have adventures. There's been far too little of it with women. -Susan Isaacs

Whether it's as the hero of an adventure story, as teacher and friend, as icon on watch, shirt or hat – everyone knows Mickey Mouse. -Warren Spector

I started playing video games, and in 1978 I discovered Dungeons & Dragons and started game-mastering and writing my own adventures and creating my own worlds. -Warren Spector

I don't even make multiplayer games much, so dealing with multiple characters is something new for me – or, rather, something I've had to recall from my days as a roleplaying adventure designer where the party was everything! -Warren Spector

What I discovered in Auschwitz is the human condition, the end point of a great adventure, where the European traveler arrived after his two-thousand-year-old moral and cultural history. -Imre Kertesz

It's the adventure, the adrenaline-flowing, risk-taking in outdoor activities that attracts me. -Baba Kalyani

I think that the tying of the Montenegrin economy with the euro is a much better option than the adventure of printing our own currency. -Igor Luksic

I've titled this book 'Eighty Is Not Enough' not just for the obvious play on words, but as a way of expressing the single idea that has governed my entire life, that every moment of life is precious, that every step we take is an adventure, that every day on earth is a gift from God. -Dick Van Patten

I have, I must admit, despised the English countryside for much of my life – despised it and avoided it for its want of danger and adventure. -Jim Crace

I kind of think of my life as this incredible hurricane of so many adventures. We can all make a difference, and we can all be courageous and believe in ourselves. -Bindi Irwin

In comics, you have to imagine what happens. I really loved it; I loved collecting. I loved following the adventures and figuring out what was going to happen next. I was a huge X-Men fan; I was a huge Spider-Man fan, and, to large degree, I remain one. It's literature for me; it's art. -Ta-Nehisi Coates

I wanted to write an adventure in the old-fashioned way, something to which I could apply the adjective 'rollicking' and not feel embarrassed. But I've never liked my heroes to be too heroic, so they ended up being a bunch of criminals instead. -Chris Wooding

I have swung on a flying trapeze, explored a glacier, and been hit in the face by a shark's tail while scuba diving. I like to throw myself fully into projects and adventures, which is probably how I managed to publish a book in the first place. -Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

I love adventure. When I'm not working or on the road, you can find me in my favorite spots around the Mission neighborhood of S.F., kitesurfing in the Bay or dancing. -Leila Janah

I was the kind of kid who was always making up stories and adventures. -Alexandra Adornetto

I really just wanted to work on adventure games, so Pinkerton Road is our own little indie studio that's focused on that. -Jane Jensen

I'd really love to work with virtual reality at some point. You could make a killer adventure game with that. -Jane Jensen

I like the 'Blackwell' adventure games, and I'm fond of some of Telltale's games, like 'Hector' and 'Puzzle Agent' – simple stories, but fun. I thought 'Heavy Rain' was amazing. -Jane Jensen

My 'Rot & Ruin' series is a post-apocalyptic adventure for teens. My 'Joe Ledger' novels are science-based action thrillers for adults. My 'Dead of Night' stories are zombie tales for adults; my 'Pine Deep Trilogy' is classic horror for adults, and I've written nonfiction books on topics ranging from martial arts to folklore. -Jonathan Maberry

Fifteen- to 30-year-olds are interested in all kinds of intelligent movies – it doesn't have to be a broad comedy or an action adventure for them to go see it. -Patrick Whitesell

I've lived in New York City for over twenty years now, and every single day is like a new adventure. At this point, there are many places I'd love to visit, but I can't imagine living anywhere else on the planet. -Kevin Kwan

I'll spend the rest of my life chasing that feeling I had on 'The Grey,' because I think we're all aware that, first and foremost, we were having an adventure, and we were also making this movie at the same time. -Joe Carnahan

What I find interesting about Captain Action is that he is more an adventurer and spy than he is a soldier. -Chris Roberson

If you read a story with an 'I' or a 'he' or a 'she,' you're in familiar territory – but 'we' is mostly unexplored. I think of 'we' as an adventure. -Steven Millhauser

When I started writing 'Luck in the Shadows,' I just wanted to create an adventure story. -Lynn Flewelling

The spirit of pickling is one of adventure and fun. -Wylie Dufresne

As a biographer, I try to uncover the adventures and personalities behind each character I research. Once my character and I have reached an understanding, then I begin the detective work reading old books, old letters, old newspapers, and visiting the places where my subject lived. Often I turn up surprises, and of course, I pass them on. -Jean Fritz

My dad was an adventurer, my mother a romantic. When they met in college, both were creative writers; the writing was a bond. -Brian Herbert

I love the leisurely amplitude, the spaciousness, of taking a walk, of heading somewhere, anywhere, on foot. I love the sheer adventure of it: setting out and taking off. -Edward Hirsch

If you're writing a thriller, mystery, Western or adventure-driven book, you'd better keep things moving rapidly for the reader. Quick pacing is vital in certain genres. It hooks readers, creates tension, deepens the drama, and speeds things along. -Nancy Kress

'Doom' aficionados expand their adventures as far as their imaginations and artistic abilities allow. Once players have exhausted the 'authorized' levels of 'Doom,' they can go on to explore thousands of additional unauthorized levels available in kits and on the Internet. -Marc Laidlaw

I can tell you that Rey is an incredibly brave young woman who starts off alone and encounters Finn, and they go on an amazing adventure, and she makes relationships she never could have imagined, and she sees things she never could have imagined. -Daisy Ridley

Finn is just a stormtrooper, and stormtroopers are no longer clones, so they are bred from birth to fight. He's not too sure about it, so he escapes and meets Rey and Poe and BB8, and their stories kind of mesh together, and they go on a major adventure. -John Boyega

I think 'Indiana Jones' was a lot of fun to do because of the places we went to and the adventures and the action. But Han Solo was also a huge part of my life. -Harrison Ford

As I sat in a small room constructing what seemed to me awkward sentences and paragraphs, McCone was out having exciting adventures. -Marcia Muller

We should be pushing our boundaries. After all, we Britons are explorers and adventurers. -Helen Sharman

Viewers make online requests to their favorite video-making whisperers to do the things that trigger their head tingles. Everyone's needs are different. It's like an interactive choose-your-own-adventure. -Andrea Seigel

I love meeting readers and booksellers and am beyond overwhelmed and gratified at the reception. Each day feels like an adventure. -John Corey Whaley

I do like to write about characters who aren't just starting out, who have had adventures before, who have had a past they aren't that happy looking back on. -Martha Wells

I'm still driven by the feeling I had when I wrote my first book or read a Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle adventure. -Kate Klise

Venissa is a perfect destination for day-trippers from Venice proper who are searching for great food and a little adventure; it's a 30-minute jaunt by vaporetto from St. Mark's, quicker by water taxi. -Roger Morris

My friend Josh Glenn compiles terrific lists of genre novels from the mid-20th century. His latest is a list of the ten best adventure novels of 1966. Josh also includes the cover art of early editions of the books, which are always much better than the art on newer editions. I want to read every book in this list! -Mark Frauenfelder

In a single lifetime, roughly from 1865 to 1930, one finds the pioneering and patterning works of modern fantasy, science fiction, children's literature and detective fiction, of modern adventure, mystery and romance. -Michael Dirda

Young people looking for adventure fiction now generally turn to fantasy, but for those of a certain age, the spy thriller has long been the escape reading of choice. -Michael Dirda

With the possible exception of steampunk aficionados, many reasonable people must view my fascination with Victorian and Edwardian popular fiction – mysteries, fantasy, and adventure – as eccentric or merely antiquarian. -Michael Dirda

Most of the fiction on the California Gold Rush makes it sound like one grand, boyish adventure. However, when you read the real history, you realize that it wasn't that way at all. -Laurence Yep

Seven years ago, when I started free soloing long, hard routes in Yosemite – climbing without a rope, gear or a partner – I did it because it seemed like the purest, most elegant way to scale big walls. Climbing, especially soloing, felt like a grand adventure, but I never dreamed it could be a profession. -Alex Honnold

Even as I was writing 'Empire State,' I knew there were more adventures for the main character, private detective Rad Bradley, to have. I also knew that the world was far larger than what I'd presented in book one. -Adam Christopher

Part of the joy of writing for kids is that you have to have a real adventure story. You can get really involved in the fantastic in a way that perhaps you can't so much in adult fiction. -Edward Carey

The adventurer in me would love to visit Patagonia, Chile. -Rachel Platten

All the books I was reading as a teenager were about individuals having adventures. So I thought that was what writers were supposed to do: to go out on the road. -Patrick deWitt

For me, adventures are a vehicle for travelling deep into the fabric of society, coming to know the environmental conditions that shape people's lives and viewing the present in the context of history. -Tim Cope

I go on a good many adventure-type trips. Whenever I go on one, it's always potentially going to be the setting for one of my books. I pay more attention to certain aspects than some other people might. Sometimes I use them, sometimes I don't. Most of the books I write are based on experiences I've had to some extent. -Watt Key

I had some adventures at the White House, but hardly enough to fill a full memoir. -Christopher Buckley

I love science fiction, and one of the things I love about it is that it's so very different. You can read stuff that's just fast-paced adventure, and the characters are cardboard, but who cares, because they're heroes, and we love it. And you can read stuff that's really deep character, and everything in between. -Ann Leckie

Science fiction in particular is often assumed to be about the future, or about some abstract technological or philosophical idea, or just about 'adventure,' but writers can't build worlds out of nothing. We use bits and pieces of the real world to assemble our fictional ones. -Ann Leckie

I had really wanted adventure. At the time that I ran away, lots of kids ran away from home. It was something of a social phenomenon. -Mary Gaitskill

I went to Iceland in 1861 and went over nearly every bit of the ground made famous by the adventures of Grettir. -Sabine Baring-Gould

Although the Academy prefers their Best Pictures grounded in realism, not fantasy, Lee's 'Life of Pi' win proved that the voters understand and appreciate the qualities a visionary director needs to create an otherworldly adventure. -Richard Corliss

Before sequels became the most reliable way to make a buck, Bond set the standard for lavish serial adventures. Before Hollywood found gold in multimillion-dollar adaptations of comic-book characters – in the Superman, Batman and Spider-Man blockbusters – Bond was the movies' first big-budget franchise superhero. -Richard Corliss

As a child, I was lucky to have the support of my parents because starting a tennis career is a very expensive adventure. -Stan Wawrinka

I had a project for my life which involved 10 years of wandering, then some years of medical studies and, if any time was left, the great adventure of physics. -Che Guevara

If you don't have a sense of adventure in this job, then you're not going to do very well. You have to be prepared for the unexpected, and that's one of the reasons why you really, really, really have to trust the people you're going to work with because you don't know what's on the other end. -Cush Jumbo

I'm an adventurer. There are so many things I'd like to do. I'd love to do an Angelina Jolie and dress in lycra and kick the crap out of somebody in a movie. It doesn't matter how rubbish the script is. -Cush Jumbo

I didn't dictate sections of 'Visions of Cody'. I typed up a segment of taped conversation with Neal Cassady, or Cody, talking about his early adventures in L.A. It's four chapters. -Jack Kerouac

John Chatterton is the kind of person who always seems to be up to some kind of incredible adventure. -Robert Kurson

I think that pirates represent every person's ability to get up and leave their current daily situation and go on an adventure, and maybe to see things and do things they've never done before or even dreamed of doing. -Robert Kurson

It's never too late in life to have a genuine adventure. -Robert Kurson

Among my favorite half-dozen topics is the field of Victorian female explorers, the intrepid women who packed up their parasols and petticoats and roamed the world in search of adventure. Some were scientists, some artists, some unabashed curiosity-seekers who simply went out to see what they could see. -Deanna Raybourn

As was the case in 'Darth Plagueis' – even going back as far as 'Cloak of Deception' – I was well aware that I was writing what used to be called 'men's adventure' fiction. -James Luceno

I've always liked telling stories. That probably came from my dad, who definitely had the gift of gab and who wove a kind of personal folklore about his youth – stories full of adventure and ghosts and wild antics. -Cullen Bunn

If I had my way, I'd love to see 'Wolverine' in a cosmic adventure all by his lonesome. -Cullen Bunn

'The Oath' seems like the perfect project for me, coming off the back of a big-scale adventure film like 'Everest.' I want to delve into an intimate, dark and psychological world where the characters are claustrophobic. -Baltasar Kormakur

For my brother and me, there would be no 'Field of Dreams'-like playing catch, no nature lessons with our old man. Instead, it would be a darkened theater, the projector light coming on, and a new adventure unfolding. -Bob Weinstein

I have often been downcast but never in despair; I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary, I treat all the privations as amusing. -Anne Frank

Love is an adventure and a conquest. It survives and develops, like the universe itself, only by perpetual discovery. -Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

We should not allow it to be believed that all scientific progress can be reduced to mechanisms, machines, gearings, even though such machinery also has its beauty. Neither do I believe that the spirit of adventure runs any risk of disappearing in our world. -Marie Curie

If I see anything vital around me, it is precisely that spirit of adventure, which seems indestructible and is akin to curiosity. -Marie Curie

Personally, I like reading adventures which really have happened to people, because they show what kind of things might happen to oneself, and they teach one how to 'Be Prepared' to meet them. -Robert Baden-Powell

Juvenile crime is not naturally born in the boy, but is largely due either to the spirit of adventure that is in him, to his own stupidity, or to his lack of discipline, according to the nature of the individual. -Robert Baden-Powell

I am proud to have been born in Iowa. Through the eyes of a ten-year-old boy, it was a place of adventure and daily discoveries – the wonder of the growing crops, the excitements of the harvest, the journeys to the woods for nuts and hunting, the joys of snowy winters, the comfort of the family fireside, of good food and tender care. -Herbert Hoover

Learning is the gateway to adventure. -Princess Beatrice of York

I have this fantasy of my older days, painting or sculpting or making things. I have this fantasy of a bike trip to Chile. I have this fantasy of flying into Morocco. But right now, it's about getting the work done and getting home to family. I have an adventure every morning, getting up. -Brad Pitt

I'd love to say that I'm this brave person doing this big adventure and that it's easy. The truth is, the night before I left, I called my mom, crying and nervous, thinking, 'What am I getting into? Can I really ride my bike across the country?' -Megan Shull

I was with the mujaheddin, the rebels, and they were fighting against the Russians, and they would bring me along. Some of the adventures, when I look back at them now, it's a wonder I'm still around. -Richard Ben Cramer

Banana Republic stands for casual sportswear, relaxed outdoor clothing with some elements of adventure and travel. The clothes are more about style, value, and taste than they are about fashion. -Robert J. Fisher

To the poet, his travels, his adventures, his loves, his indignations are finally resolved in verse, and this, in the end becomes his permanent, indestructible life. -William Jay Smith

When I made my first film, it was just an adventure. But after my first movie, I guess I got more of a feeling of what was happening around me. -Michelle Yeoh

Once I graduated from university, I wanted to climb and be outdoors as much as possible. I worked as a part-time carpenter and kept up a relationship with The North Face. One thing led to another, and I'm lucky to be where I am now. It was a circuitous path with lots of adventure throughout. -Conrad Anker

Specifically choose not to take a GPS. Just create a challenge. You can climb Everest or walk across Antarctica with minimal gear and still have that sense of adventure. But in terms of exploration, Google Earth has this world mapped down to the square foot. -Conrad Anker

It's more of an adventure when you set off into unknown territory, and there's nothing like that feeling you get when you discover a place on the Earth where no one has ever been. -Conrad Anker

Climbing, as my grandmother said, it's a pretty frivolous thing. She always wondered when I was going to get a real job. But climbing is a real job for me now, and I enjoy it. It's a gift that I'm able to do it, share adventure and motivation with people. -Conrad Anker

I've always been interested in working with top athletes, athletes who are pushing the edge and are really progressive in the outdoor space and adventure world. -Jimmy Chin

I lose anywhere up to 20 pounds on location with adventurers like Conrad Anker or Brady Robinson. So I need to replace that lost weight and muscle by training hard when I am back in the States between jobs. And as I get older, it is far more important for me to be doing this and taking my conditioning seriously. -Jimmy Chin

I am always concerned with finding the right spot and the right shot, so sometimes I forget to appreciate the skill of my fellow adventurers, but I am aware of how my life has been changed by my ability with a camera. -Jimmy Chin

I believe President Obama means everything he says about sticking to the unprecedented backing of Israel and keeping all options on the table against Tehran, as well as countering its adventures in Syria, Yemen, and Iraq. -Ehud Barak

I love adventure stories. -Paul Muldoon

I'm certainly a real homebody. But the truth is that I understand that desire to, in a way, go join the circus. That's what got me out of Long Island and into show business. I was like, 'I'm just going to have an adventure. I want to be a person that isn't surrounded by their mail and their cat.' -Winnie Holzman

Whether it be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or dealing with your children, life is an adventure, and it's how you perceive it. -Rhys Darby

My father Tom was a workaholic who never missed a single one of my sporting events for nearly two decades, and imparted in me a sense of risk and adventure. Being the one in the middle, I had more room to drift, and after college, I left the U.S. for Chile. -Jonathan Franklin

I want to explore the world properly, to be able to write about and take pictures of all kinds of different cultures. Just be an explorer or adventurer. I also love extreme sports. -Cara Delevingne

While marriage is historically associated with dire obligation and clipped wings, I've found that it actually liberates you to take on adventure and achieve your dreams. I like to call my husband 'my person.' Find your 'person,' and you can do anything! -Lake Bell

I now talk to different cultures, and I hope that I can bridge those gaps and differences between us. It's an adventure, a dream… I feel like I'm on an anthropological mission. -Shakira

I didn't dictate sections of 'Visions of Cody.' I typed up a segment of taped conversation with Neal Cassady, or Cody, talking about his early adventures in L.A. -Jack Kerouac

My friends have named me the person they least want to do extreme adventures with, because I always seem to be very close to being part of a disaster. If a cat has nine lives, I think I've used a few. -Leonardo DiCaprio

I like to read, even though it was really tough, because I could go anywhere in the world in a book, and I could have so many adventures in a book. -Octavia Spencer

When the new becomes commonplace, people become accustomed to it. That's a tribute to our sense of adventure. -John Glenn

The well-known inspiration for 'Ulysses' is made clear by the title itself: Joyce's novel is based on Homer's 'Odyssey', under the ever-fascinating premise that all of Odysseus' extraordinary adventures can be experienced by a modern man in a single day, provided that the writing consists of his mental activity. -Alvaro Enrigue

I am single. Acting can make it hard to have profound relationships if you're not careful. You get into this pattern of three-month, four-month jobs and 'what's the next adventure.' -Tom Hollander

I would let climbing slide away if I had to maintain my relationship with my family. Because it really is the big adventure. -Alex Lowe

I'm never short of inspiration. There are always new ideas – and new adventures. -Anouska Hempel

The Monarch is the Big Bad to this one family of former adventurers, but we've always known there is a bureaucracy of villains that is a workman-like aspect to them. -Christopher McCulloch

There's a million jokes about what's going on with Batman and Robin. It's a classic thing to call out the homoerotic nature of the men's adventure show. -Christopher McCulloch

Quite simply, we're re-telling the very first adventures of 'Daredevil', as originally seen in DD #1-6, but in a modern style and setting – being faithful without being slavish. And I'm using those adventures as a framework to delve into Matt's psyche a little, as he learns to become a hero. -Antony Johnston

If most women are looking for security, I think men look for adventure. -Vincent Cassel

I work everywhere. If there is a nice adventure in South Korea, for example, why not? Russia, Brazil, whatever. I'm ready for almost anything. -Vincent Cassel

One of the dominant styles of the decade following the Second World War was that of Dan Barry. He flourished in the years during which comic books were expanding into new categories – realistic adventure, true crime, romance, Western, sophisticated fantasy. -Ron Goulart

Thank you for sneaking your transistor under the pillow as you grew up loving the Tigers. God has a new adventure for me. -Vin Scully

My dream is to become a director. I want to direct a Hindi film. I have two scripts ready. One of them is a fantasy-adventure, while the other is a thriller. I've assisted my brother Selvaraghavan, who's a well-known director in Tamil cinema. I've also made short films. -Dhanush

I felt proud that the baby's first real adventure should be as a protest against the insanity of world annihilation. Already a certain percentage of unborn children are doomed by fallout, and no one knows the cumulative effects of what is already poisoning the air and sea. -Sylvia Plath

When you're in your 40s, you become more conscious of life being of limited duration and that you need to create memories and go on little adventures from time to time. -Louis Theroux

Ariel may look a lot like Barbie, and her adventure may be limited to romance and over with the wedding bells, but unlike, say, Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty, she's active, brave and determined, the heroine of her own life. She even rescues the prince. And that makes her a rare fish, indeed, in the world of preschool culture. -Katha Pollitt

I grew up in a cloistered, conservative culture that adhered to strict gender roles. So it's easy to understand why the 'girl dressed as a boy' trope resonated so much. In a world that didn't want to give people like me adventures or significance, books with cross-dressing girls were treasures. -Rae Carson

My father has been an actor since 1964. Things were tight a lot of the times, financially. It wasn't like a big romantic adventure. -Chris Pine

Many will call me an adventurer, and that I am, only one of a different sort: one of those who risks his skin to prove his platitudes. -Pawan Kalyan

As a director, I've wanted to have adventure in my life, creative adventure. I think it's partly because I grew up, basically from age six to 26, mostly on television series where the producers find something that works and then do it over and over and over again. -Ron Howard

My life has never been a part of a big plan. It's more of an unfolding adventure. -Asa Hutchinson

John McTiernan, the director, is not Ingmar Bergman. He does action-adventure movies. -Alec Baldwin

Frank Gehry not only understood my sense of fun and adventure but also reciprocated it and translated that feeling into his work. -Issey Miyake

Architects always have a feel for time – the generation they live in – as we do, and they are always striving toward boundless adventure. -Issey Miyake

Peter Fleming was a famous English traveler, explorer and adventurer, whose non-fiction books were hugely successful. My father owned signed copies of all of them – he and Peter Fleming had become acquainted over some detail of set design at the Korda film studio in Shepperton – and I had read each of them with breathless adolescent excitement. -Michael Korda

You can get stuff done in New York that you can't in Los Angeles. If you wanted to get some milk and get your shoes repaired and drop something off at the dry cleaner, that's an all-day adventure in Los Angeles. In New York, you can bang that out in half an hour. -Justin Theroux

A romance is a courtship story. In the 19th century, the definition of the romance genre was an escape from daily life that included adventure and love and battle. But in the 20th century, that term changed, and now it's deemed only a love story, specifically a courtship story. -Diana Gabaldon

I inhaled books. I loved Classics Illustrated comic books. These were books that I could afford to buy after I turned in pop bottles for change. 'The Prince and the Pauper,' 'Robinson Crusoe,' 'A Journey to the Center of the Earth.' Male narratives filled with adventure and self-discovery. -Jewell Parker Rhodes

The general direction seems to be becoming fairly clear to me, but every new piece is a small adventure. -Steven Stucky

I guess there are certain conventions that come with film and with scoring film. So maybe one of those is menace in a lower register. It's trying to evoke some sense of chaos and adventure. -Thomas Newman

Like university science departments, the arts have shown how they can earn their way and point to an economically newborn future for this country. They show that the U.K. could be a prime provider of imaginative riches and intellectual adventure, which I think are the two great prizes of the 21st century. -Melvyn Bragg

I love adventure sports. And, I love cooking. -Kajal Aggarwal

The Negro was a political football between his former slave master and Northern political adventurers. The economic basis of this contest was the power to tax, to float bonds, to award franchise: in short, to gain control over the financial resources of the newly organized States. -A. Philip Randolph

I crave for adventure. It makes me feel alive and excited. It's a constant tussle between what you want to do and other parameters that aren't in your hands. -Sushant Singh Rajput

Not many know that I'm a mountaineer, and my love for adventure will never die. -Divyanka Tripathi

I am a reserved guy and need somebody to pep me up every day, Upsi does that job perfectly. She is very vivacious and outspoken, so we blend very well. We both love travelling, and we have a thing for adventure. We love being outdoors and like to ride our own boat rather than being rowed by someone else. -Ram Charan

I was always interested in acting and writing, and I honestly thought I'd make my name as a scriptwriter one day. But somehow, I ended up in London in the early '70s, and that's where I had my David Bowie adventure. -Angela Bowie

Peter Capaldi is such a brilliant actor, and his Doctor is such a wacky and wonderful character, I can't wait to see what adventures are in store for him and Bill throughout time and space. -Pearl Mackie

I had to make a living, so I got happily diverted into writing about expeditions and adventures. -Peter Heller

I'm a lover of the great adventure films of the 1980s: 'Goonies,' 'E.T.,' 'Raiders of the Lost Ark,' 'Star Wars.' -Kelly Asbury

I'm down for adventure and up for anything. -Zach Anner

My earlier books, 'The Oath,' 'This Present Darkness' were pretty straight adventure. 'The Visitation' is like a deeper book, more thought-provoking. It probes at character more. -Frank Peretti

I knew what I didn't want. I didn't want people to feel sorry for me. I didn't want people to see me as disabled. I wanted to live a life of adventure and stories. -Amy Purdy

The 10 or 20 minutes I was somebody's mother were black magic; there is no adventure I would have traded them for. -Ariel Levy

When I got hired to do 'Guardians,' it was the dream of a lifetime for me. This is what I've been working towards.

Life is full of surprises: new opportunities come up; that's part of the fun – the adventure of life. The thing is, chaos doesn't allow us to enjoy the adventure. -Patrick Lencioni

I'm considered the 'old daddy of adventure.' -Clive Cussler

I think I saw 'Rushmore' my senior year in high school. You know, Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson, there's such a voice to those movies.

It would be a great adventure for Leicester to be in the Champions League. -Gary Lineker

I have to thank Leicester City Football Club. The adventure was amazing and will live with me forever. -Claudio Ranieri

I think Bolano had a generosity about him that was unique. He seemed to include so many people in the circle of his adventures, whereas I felt like I was pretty selfish. -Sam Shepard

Bitcoin is absolutely the Wild West of finance, and thank goodness. It represents a whole legion of adventurers and entrepreneurs, of risk takers, inventors, and problem solvers. It is the frontier. Huge amounts of wealth will be created and destroyed as this new landscape is mapped out. -Erik Voorhees

'Trek' is probably more cerebral and philosophical. 'Stargate' does seat-of-the-pants adventure and humor better. -Robert Picardo

I love to play humorous moments in dramatic shows. That's always the most fun: to keep the logic of the character in a show that's basically action-adventure and then play the comedy moments. -Robert Picardo

As kids, we did see the Disney movies and the kids' adventure stories of the day. -Ethan Coen

I am not, by nature, an explorer or an adventurer. -David Grann

Each book, for me, has been an adventure, a period of time dedicated to study, to document certain facts, to traveling, and also to fantasize and to invent. -Mario Vargas Llosa

Writing with kids is an adventure. It seems like someone always has the flu or pink-eye. I mean, you don't even have to be in direct contact with anyone to get pink-eye. But for parents who write, flexibility becomes essential, and as long as I have a pad of paper and a pen, I can write anywhere. Starbucks is fine. -Claire Messud

I love the novel as a form, as an adventure of mind and soul. Really, I absolutely love writing them; they consume my days and nights – what can I say? But I am an avid film student, too: I watch a movie every night. -Lawrence Osborne

I'm a total puritan, but I found Jacques' adventures amusing. We couldn't be further apart. I am a Calvinist toward myself and totally indulgent toward others. -Karl Lagerfeld

To me, Wonderlust is all about living life with a sense of adventure. I'm so honoured; I love being a Michael Kors woman. -Lily Aldridge

I'm really drawn to adventure, and characters being plucked from normal life and sent on extraordinary adventures. -Doug Liman

Making 'American Made' really was an adventure. -Doug Liman

There's a lot of superhero stuff out there and a lot of cop stuff out there. What we have very little of anymore is adventure. -Dean Devlin

The great thing about adventure, when told correctly, is it is one of the few genres that everybody in the family can watch together. -Dean Devlin

There is a kind of adventure- and risk-seeking audience in classical contemporary music that is really empowering and part of what draws me to it. The people that come to these concerts are open-minded and curious. -Bryce Dessner

'Star Wars' was the mythology of my youth. I longed for adventure. -Ernest Cline

I'm so proud of 'Underground' because it's this thriller; it's this action- adventure. It's unexpected. People think it's gonna one be one thing – they think it's gonna be very depressing and downtrodden – and it's empowering. -Jurnee Smollett-Bell

I've always been in love with the stars and view the cosmos as the ultimate adventure. -Emily Calandrelli

Kids are curious, and if you don't lose that, then everything is an adventure. -Diane Greene

I always wanted to do action-adventure, and science fiction genres were always something that were of great interest to me. -Ian Ziering

It's 'Sharknado,' people. No one's expecting a tear-jerking, gut-wrenching emotional piece. This is just wild sci-fi action/adventure at it's finest. It's one of those dopey movies that come on in the middle of the night, and your eyes just stay open watching it 'cuz your glued to it, 'cuz you're just compelled to continue to watch it. -Ian Ziering

I watched 'Who' with a mixture of affection and exasperation through the eighties, always ready to cheer on the Doctor but seldom feeling that the series was playing to its strengths.

One of the biggest turnoffs is being presented with an idea that's already, to a degree, complete. That's not an adventure, and it's not a learning experience. It's more of a chore. Then you become a technician with taste, as opposed to an explorer and an author. -Bennett Miller

I've just had this idea pop in my head of trying to learn a new song every da, and try and play it that night. That's been fun for me because it's a little bit of a scary adventure, playing a song for the first time in front of people and letting it just be what it is. -Jim James

I entered my egg-freezing adventure from a feeling of lack – a lack of fertility, of the right partner, of biological time. But this perceived lack actually produced abundance – of options, time, peace of mind, and microscopic chances of a child. -Faith Salie

With 'Tower Prep,' Cartoon Network wanted to go into a new area where no other kids' programming was going. There were a lot of kids' sitcoms on the air, but they wanted to really go with more of like an adventure/drama feel. -Paul Dini

I was a shy, terrified kid. But I was also a kid who was lucky enough to have friends. I laughed with those friends. I had adventures. We dreamed together. I relied on them. -Kate DiCamillo

From the first time I read John Krakauer's book 'Into Thin Air' in the early 2000s, I always thought this great adventure story would make a really good film. It has all the ingredients – a great location, disaster, interesting characters, and all forms of human emotion. -Tim Bevan

I like going on adventures or excursions. -Hilary Knight

It was like my part-time job as a kid to be an adventurer… in my head. I used to sword-fight in the garden and in the park – with my Nan, of all people, with my Nan who can barely walk! I used to make her run around, and I'd go around destroying these trees and cones and stuff. -Elliot Knight

We built a basic website, and Air Bed and Breakfast was born. Three lucky guests got to stay on a $20 airbed on the hardwood floor. But they loved it. And so did we. We took them on adventures around the city. -Joe Gebbia

I want a little black girl to pick up my book one day and see herself as the star. I want her to know that she's beautiful, and she matters, and she can have a crazy, magical adventure even if an ignorant part of the world tells her she can never be Hermione Granger. -Tomi Adeyemi

We like epic stories, we like adventure, we like epic fights, so if you can mix a great story that can also really teach someone about a different experience, you have the potential to really help people. -Tomi Adeyemi

For me, 'Jaws' is much more of an adventure movie, but when it's scary, it's terrifying. When it's funny, it's hilarious. When there's drama, it's the most sincere stuff on screen. When there's adventure, there's swashbuckle. It's all those things. -Dan Trachtenberg

As time goes on, at both DC and Marvel, characters notch up so many victories that we often start to think of them as infallible, which is kind of death for adventure fiction. -Gail Simone

When I was 26, I got pregnant. I decided to have the baby because I accept everything in life as an adventure. I accept life. I couldn't see why you would not accept it. -Vicky Krieps

When I got pregnant, I knew I wasn't anywhere in my career, that I had not arrived. I was still on my adventure, and so I said to the child in my belly, 'I am so happy for you to come, but you should know I'm still on my way, and you'll have to come with me and be in my rucksack.' -Vicky Krieps

If you look back on my career with Marvel, you will see that I don't really return to the House of Ideas to do Captain Marvel, Adam Warlock, and Silver Surfer stories. I always come back to the fold to tell further adventures of everyone's favorite Mad Titan. -Jim Starlin

I would love to do something that takes me on an adventure. I really want to do it all. -Kylie Bunbury

I grew up in the '80s, and you had these original, big-budget sci-fi adventure things all the time, not based on any source material – you'd have 'Gremlins,' 'Back to the Future,' 'E.T.' 'Ghostbusters,' the list goes on and on. I would love it so much if 'Pacific Rim' was but the first in a new wave of that sort of thing. -Travis Beacham

For me, the stamp that I impose on stuff comes from the fact that in the '80s, when I was starting to write movies, I looked back to the '70s. So the films I enjoyed as a kid were the thrillers that came out of the '70s. Back then, you didn't have action movies; you had adventure films or thrillers. -Shane Black

What's interesting when you see 'Black Panther' is you realize it couldn't have been directed by anybody else but Ryan Coogler. It's a great adventure movie, and it works on all those different levels as entertainment, but it has this kind of cultural through-line that is so specific that it makes it universal. -John Singleton

I became obsessed with the storytelling of photography and going on little adventures. -Cole Sprouse

Edgar Rice Burroughs taught me pace and gave me a sense of action and adventure. -Joe R. Lansdale

The failure of the U.S.'s foreign adventures often seems to have its roots in the U.S.'s total ignorance of things on the ground, of the countries that they fiddle with. -Peter Carey

Freedom to tell any story I want, with all the imaginary tools of my trade, is why I love writing novels. I love taking an idea, fleshing it out into a new world – and going on adventures with characters who day-dream themselves into existence and take on lives of their own. -Marjorie Liu

I wanted college to be a real American adventure for me. -Mark Kurlansky

To make three films out of one shortish book, they have to turn it into an epic, just as 'Lord of the Rings' is an epic. But 'The Hobbit' isn't an epic: its tone is intimate and personal, and although it's full of adventures and excitement, they're on a different scale to those of the bigger book. -John Lanchester

When I'm on an adventure, I live with a camera in my hand, and that's what I try to give to the readers inside the space that gives us every chapter of the story. -Eduardo Risso

For me, the blank page to draw on is a window to adventure. -Eduardo Risso

I'm so attached to Patsy and her crew, and to the adventures we've taken them on. -Kate Leth

I would love 'Patsy' to join the ranks of superhero comics that have something for everybody and are new-reader-friendly, with an adventure every issue. -Kate Leth

I've always viewed 'Sons of the Prophet' as the first part of a larger trilogy – not three plays dependent on each other but three stand-alone plays connected by theme and, likely, further adventures of the Douaihy family. -Stephen Karam

It was strange to go off the path that everyone takes and not finish college, but it's been a great adventure. -Taylor Louderman

As a kid, I became a total SF geek. It started in the 5th grade with Asimov's 'Lucky Starr' series of what would now be called 'young adult' novels of adventures in the solar system. -David Grinspoon

My family loves movies. My dad and I used to eat a huge breakfast, and then we'd just go hang out at the theater all day together. We loved movies like 'Indiana Jones' and 'James Bond.' We were both big action-adventure movie fans. So I kind of grew up with an appreciation for film. -Glen Powell

I am just a girl chasing her dreams and having an amazing adventure. -Madeline Stuart

Parenthood is an adventure. -Audra McDonald

I prefer active vacations. I really like the adventure aspect of it, and I also like a trip with intentions, where something will be gained on the other side of it. But I also like the option to just be there. -Abigail Spencer

I get to come home to my family. It's awesome, just constant adventure, never a dull moment. So much life. -Kurt Vile

I've been lucky enough to meet a lot of fantastic people, from royalty to rock stars. I've also been known to be a bit of a daredevil, so I've tried to explore extreme travel and adventure – scuba-diving in an arctic glacier and camping in the Himalayas. -Cynthia Rowley

I've taken a lot of risks through the years, but I always followed my instincts and always explored new opportunities. The biggest reward has been having an idea and being able to make it a reality. My passions always lead the way – travel and adventure, fitness, art, and home. -Cynthia Rowley

Every day is an adventure, and no two days are ever alike. -Scott Borchetta

I have dedicated my life to answering the great scientific questions of our time and to the incredible adventure of space exploration. -John M. Grunsfeld

I don't particularly want to jump out of an airplane with a parachute if I don't have to. I don't want to go bungee jumping. I like adventure with a real purpose that I can buy into. -John M. Grunsfeld

We need the daring visions. To go to theatre must be different than to go to shopping. We adventure together, we journey through the mindful and emotional landscapes, we create together an event, unique and unrepeatable. -Haris Pasovic

I always loved magic and fantasy/adventure series as a kid. -Hale Appleman

Everyone wants me to do the comedy thing. But I always wanted to do action adventure. I want to be a guy like 007 who fights against the establishment. If they can make Bruce Willis believable as an action hero, I could do it, too. -Sinbad

I like new experiences, so I want to promote the same among my colleagues, and this is why I decided to go on this adventure, because I believe going to the Moon will help me create something better. -Yusaku Maezawa

Everyone around me, they are very supportive of my adventures. -Yusaku Maezawa

I want adventure in my life. I want to do things I haven't done before. These Hollywood people are so careful of their image and looking right, but there's a wildness when I come into the photographs. I just want to wade through rivers, climb mountains. -Juergen Teller

'Captives' was a deliberate bridging exercise, an attempt to use detailed knowledge of what Britain was like on the inside, to reach a deeper, more variegated understanding of how its peoples experienced external adventures and aggression over a quarter of a millennium in four continents. -Linda Colley

You have to have a spirit of courage and adventure, or else you're going to find it tough to get up in the morning sometimes. -Justine Musk

To me, watching your spouse, somebody that you love, have an adventure – what is better than that? -MacKenzie Bezos

I always told myself I was more than a football player, so every off season, I pushed myself to go outside the box and get a little bit better off the field. I dabbled in many business adventures to gain more real world experience. -Colton Underwood

If you are of sound mind and body, many exciting and challenging adventures are within your reach irrespective of your age. -Gad Saad

All my family worked for Puma. My mother worked there, and my father was the guy that opened and closed up in the evening.

I knew everything, even how to make a shoe sole. -Lothar Matthaus
