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.

A Quote by Steven Wright on mountains and skiing

I was on a ski lift with another person . . . no one I knew . . . and he didn't say a word until we were half way up the mountain . . . then he said, "I haven't been skiing in ten years." I said, "How come?" He said, "I was in jail." I didn't say anything. He said, "You wanna know why?" I said, "Not really." He said, "I'll tell you anyway . . . I was jailed for pushing a complete stranger off a ferris wheel."

A Quote by Alan Lindsay Mackay on husbands and skiing
