  • ... tennis ... was founded on gentility. It is a very civil ritual.

  • Extreme climbers want to live intensely. They spend more time on the edge, living at a higher level of vitality than most any other of life's sojourners. For them, Everest is a symbol of excellence, of the barely attainable. It is the mightiest challenge: a brutal struggle with rock, ice, altitude, and self. The satisfaction, as I have experienced it on lesser climbs, comes from enduring the struggle, from doing more than you thought you could do, from rising — however briefly — above your everyday world, and from coming, momentarily, closer to the stars.

Sue Cobb, U.S. mountain climber, attorney, athlete

(1938)
