I am looking for a quote by Ray Bradbury, it ran something like this... there is nothing scarier than being lost as a child, nothing more exiting than to be lost as an adult...

I found what I wanted.

"To be lost. How frightening.
To be safely lost. How wonderful.
To not know where we are , as children, is a nightmare.
To not know where we are,as adults,travelling, is a perfect dream"

Now the challenge, can someone find the source? (I know the answer now)

I say that this day we call today isn't really today. If it were, then I'd have met my lawyer who said he'd meet me at 2 o'clock today. He didn't.

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.
- Douglas Adams

I have yet to see any problem, however complicated, which, when you looked at it in the right way, did not become still more complicated.
