You can’t get good by staying home. If you want to get fast, you have to go where the fast guys are.

makes me tick

It never gets easier, you just go faster.
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.
Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.
It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.
To walk in nature is to witness a thousand miracles.
