How you pack your bags makes all the difference in the trip.
It’s never as far to the top as you think it is.
Sometimes the top of the mountain just leads to another mountain. Break out the champagne anyways.
Rockslides and avalanches are just a part of life, the mountain is not out to get you.
Sometimes it takes more than one try to reach the summit. Remember: Yoda was just a muppet.
Mountaintops are not mystical reservoirs of happiness; if you don’t bring it with you, you won’t find it waiting there.
And when all else fails… keep climbing.
