My Favorite Quote!

Below is a quote founded by a NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) instructor in a deserted store in Colorado, who memorized the passage because he had no pencil and paper, describes the perspective on daydreamer and fantasy behavior that I have adopted.

“Some people do not have to search, for they to find their niche early in life and rest there seemingly contented and resigned.  At times I envy them, but usually I do not understand them… and seldom they understand me.  I am one of the searchers.  There are, I believed, millions of us.  We are not unhappy but neither are we completely content.  We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret.  We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand.  We like to walk along the beach; we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power and unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty.  We like forest, mountains, deserts, hidden rivers and lovely cities as well.   Our sadness is much a part of our lives as our laughter; to share our sadness with the one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we know, unless is to share our laughter.  We searchers are ambitious for life itself and for anything beautiful it can provide.  Most of us we want to love and be loved, to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering and prevent our search.  We do not want to prove ourselves to others or compete for love.   This passage is for wanderers, dreamers and lovers who dare to ask of life everything which is good and beautiful.”
