The Illusion of Security

A few thoughts on “Security.”

Security is an illusion, security, adventure, quote

Courtesy L&M Arts

“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 conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous 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.”
Chris McCandless

“Security is a kind of death.”
Tennessee Williams

“Security is an illusion like a mirage. It can never be attained or reached and its pursuit may kill the adventure of life itself.”
Nicolas Hale
