Words To Live By: “An Unquenchable Spirit Of Adventure…”

Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt with Family

Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt with Family

There is no experience

 from which 

you can’t learn something.

When you stop learning

you stop living

in any vital and meaningful sense.

And the purpose of life,

after all,

is to live it,

to taste experience to the utmost,

to reach out eagerly and without fear

 for newer and richer experience.

You can do that only if you have curiosity,

an unquenchable spirit of adventure…”

~~Eleanor Roosevelt, YOU LEARN BY LIVING: Eleven Keys For A More Fulfilling Life, 1960

Do you have an Unquenchable Spirit of Adventure?
