Courage

HALL, LINCOLN – Dead Lucky

The mountain is a mirror, where climbers look to find themselves. They discover their frailty, take heart from their strengths, drink deep of the insights.

These days I love to take in the sunset because every time I do so I remember how lucky I am to be alive. That’s a great relationship to have with the setting sun.

We feel our crosses hard at times, but our courage should rise with them.

MARTIN, JESSE

There are places you can only get to by sea, and there are places you can only get to by being at sea.

MAWSON, SIR DOUGLAS – The Home of the Blizzard

Fallen into a crevasse:
Exhausted, weak and chilled (for my hands were bare and pounds of snow had got inside my clothing) I hung with firm conviction that all was over except the passing. Below was a black chasm; it would be but the work of the moment to slip from the harness, then all the pain and toil would be over. It was a rare situation, a rare temptation ? a chance to quit small things for great ? to pass from the petty exploration of a planet to the contemplation of vaster worlds beyond. But there was all eternity for the last and, at its longest, the present would be but short. I felt better for the thought.

McDONALD, ANNE

The worst thing about being an inspiration is that you have to be perfect… I am a normal person with only normal courage. Some people who should know better have tried to give me a halo.

STYNES, JIM

If you can let go of that fear in life then you can do anything. It allows you to really let go and chase the things you really want to do in your life and live out the life you were born to live.
