  1. It speaks to me about never losing that sense of wonder that we have as children. Live seems to sap it as we get more and more responsibilities.

  2. Bill Sweeney says:

    A dull life is not really a life. You have to remain interested.You have to retain that sense of wonder and adventure.

  3. Jeanine says:

    It reminds me of a girl I used to be friends with. She was always so full of live, and for sure didn’t live an ordinary life. Unlike some of us!

  4. Maureen says:

    What a lovely quote to share. I love any inspirational and motivational quotes that helps inspire others to live better, stronger and happier.

  5. A constant sense of wanting to learn and experience the world can never make you ordinary and keeps you alive.

  6. Meagan says:

    That is a fun quote. I think for me it would have to do with dreaming beyond your circumstances.

  7. Pam says:

    I really like this quote. It makes me think about never losing your childlike sense of wonder.

  8. It’s a beautiful quote that tells you that there’s more to life than what you see and you can totally make something more out of it if you wanted.

  9. Joyce brewer says:

    I’ve never heard of this quote. I looks like it belongs at the beginning of a women’s empowerment themed film.

  10. Theresa says:

    It makes me think of a free spirit. One who sees below the surface of ordinary things. There’s magic to be found everywhere if one just looks hard enough.

  11. To me it is the idea that the more we know, the more we want to know. Once we get a taste of travel and adventure, we just want to keep going. Once we have seen what there is beyond the ordinary, we can never go back.

  12. Crystal says:

    It’s a great reminder to live an extraordinary life. I tend to get caught up in the busy nature of each day. But errands and racing around doesn’t lead much to a life of adventure and awe.

  13. Annemarie LeBlanc says:

    There is no end to learning. We must remain inquisitive regardless of our age. We must take inspiration from children whose days are always about discovering new things.

  14. Kiwi says:

    This quote is for me. Especially since I am on this new holistic spiritual journey I am always researching and seeking answers on how to be a better human.

  15. Dogvills says:

    I love reading this post. Learning new things should not stop at anytime. Why live an ordinary life and we have every thing we need to be extraordinary!

    I love that quote! It reminds me that you can always do and see more – you can always grow and learn and there’s never a stopping point for that!
