Improving the future requires diligent study of the past.

Maybe take the high-speed internet, and put it to better use than streaming Game of Thrones and Cat Videos on YouTube. 

Don’t let the lack of bridges be your excuse.

Don’t let the lack of bridged be your excuse, get on that raft and paddle for all your worth, paddle across that river before your opportunity passes and never comes again. 

Some of the very best places are far off the beaten path

It’s certain though that if you don’t try, you’ll for sure never get there, you’ll for sure never do anything worthwhile, or anything that really changes the world for the better.

Never let go of the curiosity, never become too busy to chase down wonder and explore new places.

The day we don’t have enough time to, slow down and contemplate life, explore something new, try something for the first time, or just chat with a new friend, is the same day we lose a lot of what actually matters in life. 

Sometimes the greatest opportunities are just down the road.

Wisdom is built solidly on a foundation of learning from mistakes and experience.

Embrace life’s experiences, the good and the bad, let them teach you what you need to be prepared and realize that all of those skills are the irreplaceable foundation of wisdom. 

Journeys are not always comfortable, glamorous, or even all that fun.

Always take a moment and enjoy the view

Except sometimes it’s important to stop, take a deep breath and take in the view.
