Tuesday's Thought

Firdtjof Nansen (1861-1930) was a Norwegian explorer and humanitarian, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922.  I really like the sentiment expressed in this quote:

"We all have a Land of Beyond to seek in our life, what more can we ask? Our part is to find the trail that leads to it. A long trail, a hard trail, maybe; but the call comes to us, and we have to go. Rooted deep in the nature of every one of us is the spirit of adventure, the call of the wild, vibrating under all our actions, making life deeper and higher and nobler."
