This section came from The Significato Journal, which was a joint effort between my husband, Peter, and me. The content is too good to abandon, so we've brought it over to my website. I may or may not update it. We'll see!

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves too." (...from The Scottish Himalaya Expedition, by WH Murray)
"Those who dwell, as scientists or laymen, among the beauties of the earth are never alone or weary in life... Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts."
