Everest - The Misty Mountain Hop

Westeern Side Of Everest
Well We Knocked The Bastard OffI.m Ok You're KO
"The first question which you will ask and which I must try to answer is this, 'What is the use of climbing Mount Everest ?' and my answer must at once be, 'IT IS NO USE'.
There is not the slightest prospect of any gain whatsoever.
Oh, we may learn a little about the behavior of the human body at high altitudes, and possibly medical men may turn our observation to some account for the purposes of aviation.
But otherwise nothing will come of it.
We shall not bring back a single bit of gold or silver, not a gem, nor any coal or iron.
We shall not find a single foot of earth that can be planted with crops to raise food.
So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won't see why we go.
What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy.
And joy is, after all, the end of life.
We do not live to eat and make money.
We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life.
That is what life means and what life is for."
(George Leigh Mallory, 1922)

"Why do you want to climb Mt. Everest ?" George Mallory (1886-1924), answer to the question very straight "Because it is there".
On the other side Junko Tabei as the first woman who beat Everest give also the simmilar explanation "I can't understand why men make all this fuss about Everest - it's only a mountain", she answerd was
Different to both of them on Hillary first climbing Mount Everest just said "Well, we knocked the bastard off !", Not long after Hillary have beat that Montain, Hillary made statement descending on 1953 "Wouldn't Mallory be pleased if he knew about this"

When asked what was is the hardest thing about climbing Mount Everest, The anonymous climber said the reall hardest things to his experiece "Pissing through 6 inches of clothes with a 3 inch penis", the anonymous belives that "Altitude is the great equalizer" on that mountain.

"As far as I knew, he had never taken a photograph before, and the summit of Everest was hardly the place to show him how. Edmund Hillary, referring to the Sherpa Tenzing Norgay.
"We will stomp to the top with the wind in our teeth." George Mallory, 1924

On May 29th, 1953, at 11.30 a.m., Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay became the first men to stand on the summit of Mt. Everest. But the top of the mountain was just the beginning of Hillary’s journey. More than half a century later, Hillary perpetual pursuit of things once imagined has resulted in the construction of schools, hospitals, medical clinics, bridges and freshwater pipelines for the people of the Himalayas.
Hillary may have left his footprint on a mountain, but Hillary put indelible imprint on the world.
Proving once again that some people are simply destined to rise to the top.
"Technique and ability alone do not get you to the top;
it is THE WILLPOWER that is the most important.
This WILLPOWER you cannot buy with money or be given by others..IT RISES FROM YOUR HEART"
(Junko Tabei-1975 after becoming first woman to climb Everest)

Hillary and his Sherpa guide Tensing Norgay were the first humans to reach Earth's highest point: the summit of Mount Everest in the Himalayas. They reached the top at 11:30 am on 29 May 1953. Hillary was knighted for his feat and in later years led expeditions to the South Pole and to the source of the Yangtze River. He also committed himself to humanitarian work among the Sherpas through his Himalayan Trust.

About Challcenge: It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.
About Character: It is not the mountains that we conquer, but ourselves.
About Attitude: Nobody climbs mountains for scientific reasons; Science is used to raise money for the expeditions, but you really climb for the hell of it.

Don't Give Up by Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush

in this proud land we grew up strong
we were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

no fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
but no one wants you when you lose

don't give up
'cos you have friends
don't give up
you're not beaten yet
don't give up
I know you can make it good

though I saw it all around
never thought I could be affected
thought that we'd be the last to go
it is so strange the way things turn

drove the night toward my home
the place that I was born, on the lakeside
as daylight broke, I saw the earth
the trees had burned down to the ground

don't give up
you still have us
don't give up
we don't need much of anything
don't give up
'cause somewhere there's a place
where we belong

rest your head
you worry too much
it's going to be alright
when times get rough
you can fall back on us
don't give up
please don't give up

'got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
going to stand on that bridge
keep my eyes down below
whatever may come
and whatever may go
that river's flowing
that river's flowing

moved on to another town
tried hard to settle down
for every job, so many men
so many men no-one needs

don't give up
'cause you have friends
don't give up
you're not the only one
don't give up
no reason to be ashamed
don't give up
you still have us
don't give up now
we're proud of who you are
don't give up
you know it's never been easy
don't give up
'cause I believe there's the a place
there's a place where we belong
