Motivational climbing quote 1:

Motivational climbing quote 2:

"Innately, children seem to have little true realistic anxiety. They will run along the brink of water, climb on the window sill, play with sharp objects and with fire, in short, do everything that is bound to damage them and to worry those in charge of them, that is wholly the result of education; for they cannot be allowed to make the instructive experiences themselves." -- Sigmund Freud (1856 - 1939)

Motivational climbing quote 3:

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious." -- Albert Einstein.

Motivational climbing quote 5:
