Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Edmond Manning
#1. Perry does not love the cost of this adventure, but his investor brain is going to run the numbers. The brain always insists on being the last committee member to cave. The brain likes to make speeches that usually begin with a familiar opening:Ladies and gentlemen, I have been wronged. #Quote by Edmond Manning
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Steven J. Charbonneau
#2. One day an intrepid sole will climb this mountain on its east side, reaching the summit and the passage that exist between the main peak and secondary peaks, by which he can descend to the west side of the mountain. It is at this site near Lake Brunner, between the main peak and an adjacent stone pyramid, in a "hidden cave" that has been sealed by earthquakes common in the region ... where lust for Inca gold must end for some ... but for that intrepid sole ... it shall be just the beginning! #Quote by Steven J. Charbonneau
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Suzy  Davies
#3. As he spoke these words, a giant wave, just like the one in Katsushika Hokusai's, "The Great Wave off Kanagawa," rippled in below the lofty ledge.

Chaiya saw a thousand images in a second.

"Brothers!" he shouted.

"Brothers! Brothers! Brothers!…"

His voice echoed and vibrated through their hearts.

They were all wide awake.

"The presence in the cave will swallow us up," Chaiya thought. #Quote by Suzy Davies
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Patrick Stuart
#4. Then Viol Chrime-Forgot and Sir Duno Chrime held each other tightly and wept sweet tears and Sir Duno Chrime swore that he did not care if his squire was a little strange and that he would never abandon him again so long as he lived and Viol Chrime-Forgot said he did not care if Duno Chrime was old, or mad or thought that he was made of glass, for he would never be apart from him again no matter what adventure fell, and though neither could hear each other over the roaring of the endless falls, or see each others tears for the misty dripping of the cave each knew what the other said and meant, and so they were friends again and remained so for as long as they both lived. #Quote by Patrick Stuart
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Joseph Campbell
#5. The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#6. New struggles.
After Buddha was dead, they still showed his shadow in a cave for centuries
a colossal, horrible shadow. God is dead, but given the way people are, there may still be caves for millennia in which his shadow is displayed.
And we
we must still defeat his shadow as well! #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Alaina Stanford
#7. Ahmity reached out and created a ball of light in his hand sending it down past Jack and into the cave. He called out to Jack, "It will move as you command."

Jack frowned feeling a bit ridiculous talking to a ball of light and said, "Go three feet inside the cave and hover." The ball floated quickly to the cave entrance and past the rushing water to hover just inside the cave entrance. "Move further in another 5 feet."

There was a large shadow to the right. "Move right 10 feet." Jack commanded and the ball floated into a side tunnel and disappeared. Jack said, "Return to Ahmity."

The ball slowly accompanied Jack back up the cliff. When he reached the top Ahmity helped him up over the edge and waited for his report. Jack wiped the sweat from his forehead and said, "I could see a tunnel in the side of the cave about 10 feet inside the entrance. It's large enough for the trolls pass through."

Ahmity shook his head and said, "If the trolls traveled back to the Netherworld from here then it's possible the beasts escaped the same way."

Jack sighed and glanced back at the school then said, "Well there's no way to know for sure unless we take a short trip down a black hole."

Coming soon--Vengeance's Fire #Quote by Alaina Stanford
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Nick Cave
#8. It's very important that the music has a sense of adventure to it, and that it's done by the seat of your pants. There's a kind of nervy element about it. #Quote by Nick Cave
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by John H. Cunningham
#9. A fallow mind is a field of discontent. #Quote by John H. Cunningham
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Karen Maezen Miller
#10. Meditation is misunderstood as something you envision in your head, when in fact it is something to be seen with your own eyes. What you begin to see is that the place where you thought your life occurred - the cave of rumination and memory, the cauldron of anxiety and fear - isn't where your life takes place at all. Those mental recesses are where pain occurs, but life occurs elsewhere, in a place we are usually too preoccupied to notice, too distracted to see: right in front of our eyes. The point of meditation is to stop making things up and see things as they are. #Quote by Karen Maezen Miller
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Marisette Burgess
#11. Like a bloomed bouquet of gardenias, her smile gave purpose to my existence. Dion Kleon - Men of the Cave #Quote by Marisette Burgess
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Mary Stewart
#12. The gods do not visit you to remind you what you know already. #Quote by Mary Stewart
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Cassandra Clare
#13. You can close your eyes and think of England, if you like."
"I've never even been to England," she said, but she shut her eyelids. She could feel the dank heaviness of her clothes, cold and itchy against her skin, and the cloying sweet air of the cave, colder yet, and the weight of Jace's hands on her shoulders, the only things that were warm. And then he kissed her.
She felt the brush of his lips, light at first, and her own opened automatically beneath the pressure. Almost against her will she felt herself go fluid and pliant, stretching upward to twine her arms around his neck the way that a sunflower twists toward light. His arms slid around her, his hands knotting in her hair, and the kiss stopped being gentle and became fierce, all in a single moment like tinder flaring into a blaze. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Kathryn Tucker Windham
#14. Many people avoid talking about death, but it never bothered me. The principal of my high school was an excellent teacher. One day he was writing on the blackboard when he suddenly turned around and said 'Life is a great adventure and death is the greatest adventure of all,' then went back to the board. I have never feared death since then. #Quote by Kathryn Tucker Windham
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Rumi
#15. The young man could stand it no more.
What is this? I've been ambushed by a night patrol
in full daylight! Your blitherings try to keep me
from the presence of a holy man,
but I know what light led me here, the same
that turned the golden calf into words in a sacred story.
A saint is a theater where the qualities of God can be seen.
Don't try to keep me out. Puff on this candle, and your face will get burned! Rather try blowing out the sun, or fitting a muzzle on the sea!
Old bats like you dream that their cave-dark
is everywhere, but it's not. #Quote by Rumi
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Tionne Rogers
#16. I survived a divorce, no children and come to Paris three days per week. My cat ran away on a love adventure; don't know when he will be back. #Quote by Tionne Rogers
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Aric S. Queen
#17. Accept that cars aren't necessary and that some meals take hours, that we can now fly to space, that there's nothing wrong with crashing on couches if you're on an adventure, that three outfits are enough, that sunrises are free, that the first time you see Machu Picchu it will break your heart, that being alone in a country with no money and no return ticket will teach you more about yourself than any therapist ever could. #Quote by Aric S. Queen
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Suzanne Brockmann
#18. We could hide," she said.
"They'd find us," Harry told her.
"Well, we could find a place - I don't know, a cave or something - where we could hold them off with your gun."
"And hope that the FBI finds us before they go back to their car and get a grenade thrower out of the trunk?"
Allie was silent for a moment, just pushing forward, using both hands to scramble up the ever-steepening hill. "So what exactly are our options?"
"We keep moving."
"That's it?" Her anger wasn't far from the surface, and it bubbled up again. "Do you screw up all your cases this way, or is there just something about me that brings out this incompetent side of you?"
"I didn't set this up," he told her for the four thousandth time. "If I did, there would have been backup. Believe me."
"I'm done believing you. I believed you twice - and you know that old saying? 'Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.' I'm making up a third part to that saying. Fool me three times, just shoot me now."
Harry laughed. It was the wrong thing to do.
"You think this is funny? We're probably going to die, and you think this is funny?" She was furious. "You said I'd be safe here, and I trusted you. I did more than trust you, I slept with you, over and over again! Oh, God, the whole time you were probably laughing and - "
"Allie, you gotta believe me - I didn't set this up. George did. George knew about that letter I got from the lawyers. He probably figured #Quote by Suzanne Brockmann
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Marisette Burgess
#19. I thought you had better sense than to get involved with a human." Sam Kleon - Men of the Cave #Quote by Marisette Burgess
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Anthony Bourdain
#20. I wanted adventures. I wanted to go up the Nung river to the heart of darkness in Cambodia. I wanted to ride out into a desert on camelback, sand and dunes in every direction, eat whole roasted lamb with my fingers. I wanted to kick snow off my boots in a Mafiya nightclub in Russia. I wanted to play with automatic weapons in Phnom Penh, recapture the past in a small oyster village in France, step into a seedy neon-lit pulqueria in rural Mexico. I wanted to run roadblocks in the middle of the night, blowing past angry militia with a handful of hurled Marlboro packs, experience fear, excitement, wonder. I wanted kicks – the kind of melodramatic thrills and chills I'd yearned for since childhood, the kind of adventure I'd found as a little boy in the pages of my Tintin comic books. I wanted to see the world – and I wanted the world to be just like the movies #Quote by Anthony Bourdain
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Joseph Campbell
#21. The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#22. To the Hesitating Purchaser:
If sailor tales to sailor tunes,
Storm and adventure, heat and cold,
If schooners, islands, and maroons
And Buccaneers and buried Gold
And all the old romance, retold,
Exactly in the ancient way,
Can please, as me they pleased of old,
The wiser youngsters of to-day:
-So be it, and fall on! If not,
If studious youth no longer crave,
His ancient appetites forgot,
Kingston, or Ballantyne the brave,
Or Cooper of the wood and wave:
So be it, also! And may I
And all my pirates share the grave,
Where these and their creations lie! #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Jennifer Pierre
#24. Gotta' take that adventure, in order to understand your journey. #Quote by Jennifer Pierre
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Barbara Hurd
#25. Caves so often symbolize rebirth. It's a hidden space, an expected, inscrutable space. Strange things live in there - eyeless salamanders, albino fish, a prophet's epiphanies. #Quote by Barbara Hurd
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Yehuda Amichai
#26. It was not an adventure; it was my life. #Quote by Yehuda Amichai
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Nick Cave
#27. I was about 12 years old and I was sitting watching the television and it was some kind of talent show, you know, and on marches this monkey, this ape, in a pair of red-checked trousers with a little matching jacket holding a ukelele and it started jigging around playing it, and it was looking straight into the camera, straight at me, and I remember thinking, that's it, that'll be me, you know, that'll be me. #Quote by Nick Cave
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by S.A. Tawks
#28. Too much negativity can make the strongest structures dilapidate. #Quote by S.A. Tawks
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Victoria Haugnes
#30. He always kept a handful of stars in his pockets and rays of sunshine in his smile, a
hurricane in his eyes and whole galaxies in his mind. And now when I close my eyes, my mind roams and enters the cave where our memories still resided. There's so much I wish I could tell you, but most of all I wonder how you could do this to us. I'm yet again stuck in this darkness that seems to never end. #Quote by Victoria Haugnes
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Emilia Fox
#31. Older men are wiser and that is much cooler to me. I've never been one for going out clubbing or getting off my head, so I always gravitated to men who were similar. They just tended to be older. I think you have more of an adventure with an older man. And a happier journey. #Quote by Emilia Fox
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#32. My father died shortly after I was twenty-one; and being left well off, and having a taste for travel and adventure, I resigned, for a time, all pursuit of the almighty dollar, and became a desultory wanderer over the face of the earth. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Colossal Cave Adventure quotes by Seth King
#33. Dying was easy, but living was the most challenging adventure of all. #Quote by Seth King
