A Quote by John Menlove Edwards on climbing

So, as you would imagine, I grew up exuberant in body but with a nervy, craving mind. It was wanting something more, something tangible. It sought for reality intensely, always as if it were not there... But you see at once what I do, I climb.

John Edwards

A Quote by Elizabeth Knowlton on mountains, mountaineers, climbing, skiing, and nature

To those men who are born for mountains, the struggle can never end, until their lives end.  To them it holds the very quintessence of living - the fiery core, after the lesser parts have been burned away.

Elizabeth Knowlton
