Ice And Snow Quotes by Jessica Day George, Ed Viesturs, Ernest Shackleton, Sylvia Earle, Jeff Lowe, Heinrich Heine and many others.
Love you always, miss you always… running day and night, leaving the place of sun and moon, of ice and snow. Never look back, never forget.
K2 is not some malevolent being, lurking there above the Baltoro, waiting to get us. It’s just there. It’s indifferent. It’s an inanimate mountain made of rock, ice, and snow. The “savageness” is what we project onto it, as if we blame the peak for our own misadventures on it.

Snow and adolescence are the only problems that disappear if you ignore them long enough.
