Quote of the day

Remember when you see a man at the top of a mountain, he didn’t fall there.


If I may comment on this quote I would say that what is being stated could have easily been applied and easily been understood 100 years ago, i.e before the invention of the airplane, the balloon, the sky rocket or any other flying device. Nowadays, we read this sentence and the images it provokes in our minds don’t ring any bells or highlight any major achievement. Yes, it is hard to climb the ladder of success. Yes, it is hard to climb a mountain relying only on our skills, our determination and our clear goals. But nothing is impossible if we are determined. As I stated earlier in a previous comment on a different quote and as Maxim Chaaya once said : “if your goal is to reach the summit, all the rest is details.”
