I’ve always wanted to road trip across the country. Hard to believe I’ll finally be getting my chance when I move out west in a couple of months.
- Ron: Everything okay Knope?
- Leslie: (Sighs) My boyfriend is a lawyer and he's smart and interesting and there's a lot of things about him I like. But he acted like a real jerk today. I don't know there's something about the way he treats people or something.
- Ron: He's a tourist. He vacations in people's lives, takes pictures, puts them in a scrapbook and moves on. All he is interested in are stories.
- Leslie: Huh.
- Ron: Basically, Leslie, he's selfish. And you're not and that's why you don't like him.
Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.
