“Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence,
and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. 
Do nothing in haste; look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end.”
  => Edward Whymper (From "Scrambles Amongst the Alps", written in 1871) <=
