We are human. Our attention is fragmentary. We get excited. We get tired. We get stupid. Of course, you can’t make adventure safe, for then it’s not adventure… But we want to go up. We want to conquer. I don’t mind dying. I just don’t want to do it today. And I’d hate like hell to have my gravestone read: “Here lies a moron.”
— So many great quotes from Deep Survival.
