“The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment from life is to live dangerously.
Safety is the biggest illusion sold by people who never lived it in the first place. You need to take risks and get out of your shell to live an extraordinary life. Meet new people, travel to new places, try new and bizarre ideas in your work, relationships, and physique – because it’s an absolute pleasure to create something entirely new.”
