Quote: Philip DiNuovo 'You are never more alive than when you are rushing headlong into danger, all senses alive and adrenalin coursing through your bloodstream.  When the danger has passed and you have succeeded, you find that life is sweet and that you savor it like a fine wine.  In the game of life, you cannot win, you cannot even break even.  Live your life as hard as you can.'
