Going on adventures is of course a reward in and of itself – they break you out of your routine, you get to do cool things, meet new people, brag to your friends. But adventures also serve a higher purpose – they change you for the better.

The best adventures draw a line between the old version of you and a new and improved version. There have been boatloads of studies that look into how adventures and expeditions change benefit your life, and just some of the positive outcomes include:

  • You get to know your own strengths and weaknesses when faced with unusual situations and hurdles.
  • You realize how good you have it compared to many other parts of the world.
  • It gives you new things to talk about and bond over. This is especially helpful if you’re an introvert who doesn’t feel at their most comfortable when having a chat.
  • You gain confidence. For example, if you can sort out a problem in a country where you don’t speak the language, you’re going to have a solid base of confidence when you have situations that arise back home.

The list goes on. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Here are 11 quotes from people who made their own lives into adventures, and in so doing became people you recognise for their courage or creativity.

Quotes about adventure

1. “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

2. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” — Steve Jobs

3. “It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

4. “A man does not climb a mountain without bringing some of it away with him, and leaving something of himself upon it.” – Sir Martin Conway

5. “To venture causes anxiety, but not to venture is to lose one's self... And to venture in the highest is precisely to be conscious of one's self.” - SΓΈren Kierkegaard

6. “It’s 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 in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly…. Who knows the 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 knew neither victory nor defeat.” - Teddy Roosevelt

7. “The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.” - Oprah Winfrey
