Wise words for hard moments...

Sometimes you have no clue how to continue, whether on a steep mountain, in your armchair or behind your desk. 

But the quotes come to the rescue! We have collected a bunch of motivating, humorous and serious qoutes from famous and not so famous people.

Most of them relate to mountaineering in one way or another although even we don't always see the connection :-)

Motivational climbing quote 1:

"Never do things others can do and will do, if there are things others cannot do or will not do." -- Amelia Earhart

Motivational climbing quote 2:

"Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Motivational climbing quote 3:

"Don't be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid." -- John Keats (1795 - 1821)

Motivational climbing quote 4:

"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled." -- Richard Feynman (1918 - 1988)

Motivational climbing quote 5:

"Death comes to all but great achievements build a monument which shall endure until the sun grows cold." -- Georg Fabricius
