The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.
When a friend is in trouble, don’t annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.
Never mind what others do; do better than yourself, beat your own record from day to day, and you are a success.
I believe that the true road to preeminent success in any line is to make yourself master of that line.
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
我一直都討厭登山危險的那部分，而因為安全的關係能再次下山很棒… 但建立起夥伴關係 – 那我仍然相信是最巨大的壯舉 – 及在同伴的陪伴下在危難中共享是另一回事。這是極度的努力，付出你所有的全部，這真的是一個非常愉悅的感覺。
I’ve always hated the danger part of climbing, and it’s great to come down again because it’s safe … But there is something about building up a comradeship – that I still believe is the greatest of all feats – and sharing in the dangers with your company of peers. It’s the intense effort, the giving of everything you’ve got. It’s really a very pleasant sensation.
