Pope Benedict XVI
Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for goodness.
Power is the great aphrodisiac.

While on top of Everest, I looked across the valley towards the great peak Makalu and mentally worked out a route about how it could be climbed. It showed me that even though I was standing on top of the world, it wasn't the end of everything. I was still looking beyond to other interesting challenges.
