“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”

–Christopher McCandless

  1. I have to disagree with Christopher about the “greatest” joy, but I DO agree that an endlessly changing horizon and new daily sun are indeed a great joy! His is one of the saddest stories I’ve ever heard/seen.

  2. Great quote but as others have said, with a sad backstory. Have you read the book as well as seen the film? It’s well worth it, as it conveys what drove him there even better than the film did imho

  3. I am feeling rather ignorant and stupid and in a tiny minority here, but I’ve never heard of Christopher McCandless and had to Google him to find out anything at all! I must have missed something somewhere….! Great quote though.
