"You never climb the same mountain twice, not even in memory. Memory rebuilds the mountain, changes the weather, retells the jokes, remakes all the moves."
-- Lito Tejada-Flores
"Somewhere between the bottom of the climb and the summit is the answer to the mystery why we climb."
-- Greg Child
"Doubly happy, however, is the man to whom lofty mountain tops are within reach."
-- John Muir
