"there are two tragedies in life one is not to get your hearts desire the other is to get it"

-Oscar Wilde
You've climbed all fourteen of the world's mountains taller than 8,000 meters, many of them several times. You've never been hurt, never fallen down, and you don't even use supplemental oxygen. What's your secret?

I'm willing to turn around if the weather changes before I reach the top. I figure mountain climbing should be a round trip: if you don't make it back down, it doesn't count.

--Ed Veisturs, famous mountain climber, interviewed by Jon Stewart on "The Daily Show," 2006
Nice quote.I also share a quote here.

Usage notes

Often misquoted in English texts as fortes Fortuna adiuvat, which uses the accusative plural ending -ēs instead of the "Republican" accusative ending –īs. Although grammatically correct, the form ending in -ēs is not the one used in Terence's play.
"No! Please... don't... aaargh!"
Most of the people I visit unexpectedly.
Carpe diem.

From the family crest of my in-laws.

In Horace, the phrase is part of the longer Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero – "Seize the Day, putting as little trust as possible in the future", and the ode says that the future is unforeseen, and that instead one should scale back one's hopes to a brief future, and drink one's wine. This phrase is usually understood against Horace's Epicurean background.

" Your book is both interesting and original. Unfortunately, the part that is original is not interesting and the part that is interesting is not original."

That is all warn out my dear . Listen to the rhetoric all around you . You know I like you very much . That I wish I could set your mind free . That is how much I care for you . It is because of your humility . That you have . You own that .

We need to set the little birdy free so she can rise to her full potential .
