"No one remembers who climbed Mount Everest the second time."

I found this picture in an old National Geographic circa 1956 which led to the piece above.

Favorite Everest Quotes

"Everest for me, and I believe for the world, is the physical and symbolic manifestation of overcoming odds to achieve a dream."

"Because it is there."

What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for." -
George Leigh Mallory, 1922
