RIP Hillary

Nobody climbs mountains for scientific reasons. Science is used to raise money for the expeditions, but you really climb for the hell of it.

-- Sir Edmund Hillary (20 July 1919 - 10 January 2008), New Zealand mountaineer and explorer, in "Wise Guys : Brilliant Thoughts and Big Talk from Real Men" (2005) by Allan Zullo, p. 5
