“It was titillating to brush up against the enigma of mortality, to steal a glimpse across its forbidden frontier. Climbing was a magnificient activity, I firmly believed, not in spite of the inherent perils, but precisely because of them.” (pg 269)

“Everest has always been a magnet for kooks, publicity seekers, hopeless romantics and others with a shaky hold on reality.” (92)
