"We are to regard existence as a raid or great adventure; it is to be judged, therefore, not by what calamities it encounters, but by what flag it follows and what high town it assaults. The most dangerous thing in the world is to be alive; one is always in danger of one's life. But anyone who shrinks from that is a traitor to the great scheme and experiment of being."
— G.K. Chesterton

(This extra special "quotable" is for DN, RR, and SJC, as they begin their new adventures in NH, CO, and MD respectively!  I am so thrilled for you all!)


  1. Thank you Maggie!!!! A wonderful quote. I love seeing life as an adventure and am happy to hear that Chesterton thought so too. :)

  2. Now safely (?) in NH, I'm catching up on reading here and can enjoy the quote. Here's to not turning traitor.
