“There is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.”
Ranulph Fiennes

“It is a truism to say that the dog is largely what his master makes of him: he can be savage and dangerous, untrustworthy, cringing and fearful; or he can be faithful and loyal, courageous and the best of companions and allies.”
Ranulph Fiennes

“People should be treated the same and, if black or brown, they should neither be penalized nor rewarded. Positive discrimination is counterproductive.”
Ranulph Fiennes, The Feather Men
