“The [Everest] climbers passed him by, and Beck lay there for a day, a night and another day, in the snow. Then he said to himself, ‘I don’t want to die. I have a family to come back to.’ The thoughts of his family, his kids and his wife, generated enough energy, enough motivation in him, so that he actually got up.” — Ken Kamler
