Takbo Printipe’s Quote of the Day

“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves”. – Sir Edmund Hillary, New Zealand mountaineer, explorer and philanthropist

~oOo~

Did you know… Sir Edmund Hillary was born in 1919 and grew up in Auckland, New Zealand. It was in New Zealand that he became interested in mountain climbing. Although he made his living as a beekeeper, he climbed mountains in New Zealand, then in the Alps, and finally in the Himalayas, where he climbed 11 different peaks of over 20,000 feet. By this time, Hillary was ready to confront the world’s highest mountain.
