Krzysztof Wielicki
Alpnizm to głównie emocje. W kilka minut można przeżyć tyle, ile na dole nie przeżyje się przez całe życie.
Krzysztof Wielicki

Maurice Herzog
Annapurna, to which we had gone emptyhanded, was a treasure on which we should live the rest of our days. With this realization we turn the page: a new life begins. There are other Annapurnas in the lives of men.
Maurice Herzog, Annapurna
