Friday Thoughts

“Life’s a bit like mountaineering – never look down.” – Sir Edmund Hillary

Sir Edmund Hillary and his sherpa guide, Tenzing Norgay succeeded in being the first to reach the summit of Mt Everest on May 29, 1953.

I was reading a post by @Leadershipfreak and the following excerpt caused me to contemplate how people and society have changed.

There are no pictures of Sir Edmund Hillary on top of Mt. Everest. He took a picture of Tenzing. Later Hillary said. “I never even thought about taking a photograph of myself.”
