I have discovered that even the mediocre can have adventures and even the fearful can achieve.
We didn’t know if it was humanly possible to reach the top of Mt. Everest.
You don’t have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things — to compete. You can be just an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals. The intense effort, the giving of everything you’ve got, is a very pleasant bonus.
Life’s a bit like mountaineering – never look down.
