"The experienced mountain climber is not intimidated by a mountain - he is inspired by it. The persistent winner is not discouraged by a problem - he is challenged by it. Mountains are created to be conquered; adversities are designed to be defeated; problems are sent to be solved. It is better to master one mountain than a thousand foothills."

William Arthur Ward
1921-1994, Author

There are only three sports - bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games
