"We who go mountain-scrambling have constantly set before us the superiority of fixed purpose or perseverance to brutal force. We know that each heigt, each step, must be gained by patient, laborious toil, and that wishing cannot take the place of working - - - but we know that where there's a will there's a way - - - and with this in mind I say, Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime."
- Edward Whymper
