The wolf on the hill is never as hungry as the wolf climbing the hill.
I probably hold the distinction of being one movie star who, by all laws of logic, should never have made it. At each stage of my career, I lacked the experience.
Look, whenever I hear or read I’m beautiful, I simply don’t understand it … I’m certainly not beautiful in any conventional way. I didn’t make my career on beauty.
My greatest ambition is to have a career without becoming a career woman.
My poetry is a declaration of war, not an exordium to defeat. It is not the defeated soldier’s drumbeat of despair, but the fighting warrior’s will to win. It is not the de- spirited voice of dejection but the stirring shout of victory.
Had I not become a professional golfer, I think I would have pursued some type of career in aviation.
To plunder, to lie, to show your arse, are three essentials for climbing high.
My father considered a walk among the mountains as the equivalent of churchgoing.
Entry-level jobs are excellent opportunities to educate young women about the realities of the financial world and can prepare them for the next move up within the firm or another area of the financial industry.
There are a lot of jobs in the financial industry that do need a math major.
I have met 18 million youth, and each wants to be unique.
It’s when children are 15, 16 or 17 that they decide whether they want to be a doctor, an engineer, a politician or go to the Mars or moon. That is the time they start having a dream, and that’s the time you can work on them. You can help them shape their dreams.
Climbing to the top demands strength, whether it is to the top of Mount Everest or to the top of your career.
There’s no magic to running far or climbing Everest. Endurance is mental strength. It’s all about heart.
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.
All my life the only thing I’ve been good at has been climbing and throwing myself off big things.
The bigger that your career gets, the smaller your life gets.
When you go home, tell them of us and say, for their tomorrow, we gave our today.
For those they love, they sacrifice.
Being a soldier requires more than courage. It is sacrificing yourself for something greater than yourself.
