Эдмунд Хиллари

Дата рождения: 20. Июль 1919
Дата смерти: 11. Январь 2008

Сэр Эдмунд Персиваль Хиллари — новозеландский исследователь и альпинист. Один из двух людей — первовосходителей на Эверест вместе с шерпом Тенцингом. Почётный гражданин Непала.

Альпинизмом стал интересоваться ещё в школе, совершив своё первое восхождение в 1939 году на гору Оливье в Новой Зеландии. В годы Второй мировой войны служил в ВВС Новой Зеландии в должности штурмана. До удачного восхождения на Эверест в 1953 году принимал в 1951 году участие в разведывательной экспедиции к горе, а в 1952 году безуспешно пытался покорить гору Чо-Ойю. В 1957—1958 годах Хиллари совместно с В. Фуксом руководил пересечением Антарктиды. Впоследствии принимал участие в экспедиции на Северный полюс.

После покорения Эвереста Эдмунд Хиллари большую часть своей жизни помогал восточно-гималайскому народу шерпа. Благодаря его усилиям было построено много школ и больниц в отдалённых районах Гималаев.

Цитаты Эдмунд Хиллари

„It was too late to take risks now. I asked Tenzing to belay me strongly, and I started cutting a cautious line of steps up the ridge. Peering from side to side and thrusting with my ice axe, I tried to discover a possible cornice, but everything seemed solid and firm. I waved Tenzing up to me. A few more whacks of the ice–ax, a few very weary steps, and we were on the summit of Everest.“

—  Edmund Hillary

Контексте: It was too late to take risks now. I asked Tenzing to belay me strongly, and I started cutting a cautious line of steps up the ridge. Peering from side to side and thrusting with my ice axe, I tried to discover a possible cornice, but everything seemed solid and firm. I waved Tenzing up to me. A few more whacks of the ice–ax, a few very weary steps, and we were on the summit of Everest.
It was 11:30 AM. My first sensation was one of relief — relief that the long grind was over, that the summit had been reached before our oxygen supplies had dropped to a critical level; and relief that in the end the mountain had been kind to us in having a pleasantly rounded cone for its summit instead of a fearsome and unapproachable cornice. But mixed with the relief was a vague sense of astonishment that I should have been the lucky one to attain the ambition of so many brave and determined climbers. I seemed difficult to grasp that we'd got there. I was too tired and too conscious of the long way down to safety really to feel any great elation. But as the fact of our success thrust itself more clearly into my mind, I felt a quiet glow of satisfaction spread through my body — a satisfaction less vociferous but more powerful than I had ever felt on a mountain top before. I turned and looked at Tenzing. Even beneath his oxygen mask and the icicles hanging form his hair, I could see his infectious grin of sheer delight. I held out my hand, and in silence we shook in good Anglo-Saxon fashion. But this was not enough for Tenzing, and impulsively he threw his arm around my shoulders and we thumped each other on the back in mutual congratulations.

„The explorers of the past were great men and we should honour them. But let us not forget that their spirit lives on.“

—  Edmund Hillary

Контексте: The explorers of the past were great men and we should honour them. But let us not forget that their spirit lives on. It is still not hard to find a man who will adventure for the sake of a dream or one who will search, for the pleasure of searching, not for what he may find.

„On my expedition there was no way that you would have left a man under a rock to die. It simply would not have happened.“

—  Edmund Hillary

As quoted in The Tribune (India) (29 May 2006) http://www.tribuneindia.com/2006/20060529/world.htm
Контексте: On my expedition there was no way that you would have left a man under a rock to die. It simply would not have happened. It would have been a disaster from our point of view. There have been a number of occasions when people have been neglected and left to die and I don’t regard this as a correct philosophy. I am absolutely certain that if any member of our expedition all those years ago had been in that situation we would have made every effort.

„I didn't worry about getting Tenzing to take a photograph of me — as far as I knew, he had never taken a photograph before, and the summit of Everest was hardly the place to show him how.“

—  Edmund Hillary

On the photograph of Sherpa guide Tenzing Norgay at the summit of Everest, in "Adventure's End" in The Norton Book of Sports (1992) edited by George Plimpton, p. 86
Контексте: Tenzing had been waiting patiently, but now, at my request, he unfurled the flags wrapped around his ice–axe and standing at the summit, held them above his head. Clad in all his bulky equipment and with the flags flapping furiously in the wind, he made a dramatic picture, and the thought drifted through my mind that this photograph should be a good one if it came out at all. I didn't worry about getting Tenzing to take a photograph of me — as far as I knew, he had never taken a photograph before, and the summit of Everest was hardly the place to show him how.

„We didn’t know if it was humanly possible to reach the top of Mt. Everest.“

—  Edmund Hillary

Контексте: We didn’t know if it was humanly possible to reach the top of Mt. Everest. And even using oxygen as we were, if we did get to the top, we weren’t at all sure whether we wouldn’t drop dead or something of that nature.

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

—  Edmund Hillary

Though widely attributed to Hillary on the internet, this appears to have originated as a quote about him in a Rolex advertisement.

„It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.“

—  Edmund Hillary

Though widely attributed to Hillary on the internet and in several Books (e.g. That's Life : Wild Wit & Wisdom (2003) by Bonnie Louise Kuchler, p. 20), this appears to have originated from George Mallory. Source: https://quoteinvestigator.com/2016/08/18/conquer/
