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

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Memorial Day

America will never be destroyed from the outside.  If we falter and lose our freedoms, 
it will be because we destroyed ourselves. - Abraham Lincoln

Never forget those who gave for our freedom.


  1. Those endless rows of white. Mankind don't make much progress in finding solutions to avoid this kind of honor fields.

  2. Abraham Lincoln was extremely wise to see so far ahead in time!

  3. He was a visionary, will mankind ever be so wise as Abraham Lincoln?

  4. read a quote from plato on another blog this morning: only the dead have seen the end of war.

  5. A great shot, and a great choice of quotes. Such wisdom.

  6. Truer words were never spoken... just have to look around us to see how we have almost destroyed the planet already.... freedoms be damned ..... destruction of what was a perfect eco system is our undoing I think.........

  7. Lovely photo, and agree that this is a profound quote we all should take to heart!
