All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds, awake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it reality.- T.E. Lawrence

Quite certainly it is the power of the mountain has to force the best out of man. Man likes to be his best. But often nothing short of a Himalayan peak can extract it from him- can compel him to fittest in body, alertest in mind, and firmest in soul. So he is drawn to the mountain. And the mountain makes a man out of him. And he is grateful. This is the true secret of the lure of the mountains.- Sir Francis Younghusband in Foreword to Kamet Conquered
