Jack London Poster
Known to his friends as “the wolf,” Jack London would always remind them that “we are dying, cell by cell, every minute of our lives.” He was thus determined to make the most of every day he was given. London took pride in “the captaincy of his own powers,” and subscribed to the maxim that “Satisfaction with existing things is damnation.” He referred to the journey of life as his “adventure path,” and he was ever in pursuit of “the tang of living.”
Thus as a young man, London worked in a cannery, electrical plant, and laundry facility, taught himself to sail, became an oyster pirate, traveled the Pacific aboard a seal-hunting schooner, and ventured into the Klondike in search of gold. By age 22, he had seen and done more than 99% of men will in their entire lifetime.
London went on to become a bestselling author, writing classics like Call of the Wild and White Fang, alongside 20 other books, 200 short stories, and 400 non-fiction pieces.
He never stopped seeking “the primordial vigor of life” and his philosophy of living is best summed up in the credo he wrote for himself that adorns this inspiring print. Hang Jack London’s credo up where you can see it each day to remind yourself to ever seek the adventure path and the wondrous tang of living.
This 12" x 18" poster is printed in the good old USA on high quality, matte-finished paper.
