Favorite Quotes – 2020 – Post #35

“People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things.”

– Edmund Hillary

My two cents (or another favorite quote), but please share yours:

“There is precious little in civilization to appeal to a Yeti.”

– Edmund Hillary

Today’s theme = Edmund Hillary


  1. Hillary was my fellow countryman! Years ago I was on the committee developing the themes for New Zealand’s banknotes – and Hillary was picked for the $5, while still alive (an unprecedented honour). He agreed to feature, but insisted on having a tractor added to the note, commemorating his drive across the South Pole in 1957, which he felt was a greater achievement for him, personally, than climbing Everest.

    • That is so cool, Matthew! Hillary sounds like quite an interesting character! Love the tractor! 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
