What about that rhinoceros? You think he’d make a good pet?
No? Don’t you think if you called to him, he’d come running for his supper? I bet he would. I bet he’d come running.
You’re silly, Pop-Pop.
Well, a little. But he’d probably knock everything over. Plus, there’s that big nose of his.
That’s not a nose, that’s a horn.
Is that so?
His real nose is little.

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. 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.
So come, come on, I’m ready now
I got that feeling honey like I’m ready to roll
You see, I’m not gonna wait till the end of me
‘Cause I got the burning fire in the bed of my soul

but I’ve been at this far too long
to act like that when we should be
in perfect harmony
