I’m your worst nightmare.
When I wake up with your arms wrapped around me, I know that you are the knight that kept my nightmares at bay during the night.
Adventure runs on all sorts of whiskey.
Our nuclear weapons are meant purely as a deterrent against nuclear adventure by an adversary.
Why, I’d like nothing better than to achieve some bold adventure, worthy of our trip.
I would sincerely regret, and which never shall happen whilst I am in office, a military guard around the President.
I’ve always wanted to skydive.
I have often been downcast but never in despair; I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary, I treat all the privations as amusing.
Rationalism is an adventure in the clarification of thought.
Without adventure, civilization is in full decay.
India can live without nuclear weapons. That’s our dream, and it should be the dream of the U.S. also.
Sometimes an ember is all we need.
You can’t become a decent horseman until you fall off and get up again, a good number of times. There’s life in a nutshell.
I loved climbing because of the freedom, and having time and space. I remember coming off Everest for the last time, thinking of Dad and wishing that he could have seen what I saw. He would have loved it.
The greatest journeys all start with a single step.
A man’s pride can be his downfall, and he needs to learn when to turn to others for support and guidance.
All my life the only thing I’ve been good at has been climbing and throwing myself off big things.
Adventure should be 80 percent ‘I think this is manageable,’ but it’s good to have that last 20 percent where you’re right outside your comfort zone. Still safe, but outside your comfort zone.
To me, adventure has always been to me the connections and bounds you create with people when you’re there. And you can have that anywhere.
The special forces gave me the self-confidence to do some extraordinary things in my life. Climbing Everest then cemented my belief in myself.
