Revelation, a Visual Poem

Instead of an adventurous quote this week I am going for a visual feast by way of sebastien montaz-rosset’s inspiring little film entitled ‘Revelation, a Visual Poem’ both written and narrated by Charlotte Davis.

It is not the critic who counts

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Adventures don’t come calling!

…adventures don’t come calling like unexpected cousins calling from out of town. You have to go looking for them.” – unknown

Unexpected Success!

Unexpected Success

If one advances confidently in the direction of one’s dreams, and endeavors to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
– Henry David Thoreau
