Hi all,
My friend is editing a film she's made about a Slovakian climber - he put up a new route on Trango tower last year. She wants a couple of climbing quotes to put in her film, any ideas? She says "smth either explaining what climbing is or inspirational. and smth about the dangers"
Thanks for your help from an aspiring Russian filmmaker! (not me my friend!)

“Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste; look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end.”
