An Adventurer's Adage

“Always there has been an adventure just around the corner - and the world is still full of corners.”

- Roy Chapman Andrews (January 26, 1884 – March 11, 1960)

A famous paleontologist, explorer, and naturalist, Andrews was THE inspiration for Indiana Jones. He is most well known for his expeditions in 1920s Mongolia where, in search of human and mammal origins in the Gobi Desert, they found dinosaur species (Velociraptor, Oviraptor, Protoceratops, Psittacosaurus, etc) instead. One of the findings, a Protoceratops nest, were the first dinosaur eggs ever discovered.
