    I’d be OK with just the quote

    Yes, all very well but some of us simply strive for a comfortable and safe place to enjoy our lives. Actually, that in itself is striving for a monumental goal.

    Depends on if the accountant has taken risks in his life from time to time to grow, pushing at the opportunities that appear and attempted to reach their own dreams. I think this is less about the person who takes this to an extreme and more someone who lives fully in the moment willing to take a chance in life for the experience of a life time.

    I believe this is “The Man in the Arena” passage from Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “Citizenship in a Republic”, delivered at the Sorbonne in Paris, 23 April 1910. Excellent choice for a “Pencils” strip!

    Gavin, this is one of my all-time favorite quotes. My dad has a ragged newspaper clipping of this speech framed on his desk. I try to refer back to it when I feel knocked down. I really enjoy Zen Pencils for this reason – a lot of good quotes, and great drawings that illustrate them.
