James Beckwourth Quote

The restless, youthful mind, that wearies with the monotony of peaceful everyday existence, and aspires after a career of wild adventure and thrilling romance, will find by my experience that such a life is by no means one of comfort, and that the excitement which it affords is very dearly purchased by the opportunities lost of gaining far more profitable wisdom.
