"I believe adventure is nothing but a romantic name for trouble."
“The armchair adventurer has all the advantages, believe me. As I have said elsewhere, and more than once, I believe adventure is nothing but a romantic name for trouble.
What people speak of as adventure is something nobody in his right mind would seek out, and it becomes romantic only when one is safely at home, It is much better to watch someone riding a camel across a desert on a movie screen than it is to be up on the camel’s back, traveling at a pace of two and a half to three miles per hour through a blazing hot day with the sand blowing.”
- Louis L’Amour
