“That capacity of the mind to embrace infinity, that path toward an authentic spirituality, is one of the most beautiful lessons that my life on the mountain left me with.”
Eduardo Strauch Urioste, Out of the Silence: After the Crash

“They were only bodies, as fragile as our own, but for them a single blow had been enough to break the clay vessel. They were only bodies, pieces of firm and slightly pliable matter. The inner value of each one was no longer there, and in so many of the others still living, the contents of the vessels were slowly escaping through irreparable cracks.”
Eduardo Strauch Urioste, Out of the Silence: After the Crash

“Life seemed to be reminding us yet again that we are never completely safe and that risk is an integral part of life itself.”
Eduardo Strauch Urioste, Out of the Silence: After the Crash
