Text Quotes
It’s not an adventure until something goes wrong  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) To do good, you actually have to do something  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) Mastery... is to work toward simplicity; replace complex technology with knowledge, hard work, and skill.  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) We’re a part of nature. As we destroy nature, we destroy ourselves. It’s a selfish thing to want to protect nature.  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) I’m kind of like a samurai. They say if you want to be a samurai, you can’t be afraid of dying, and as soon as you flinch, you get your head cut off. I’m not afraid of losing this business.  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) During the sixties, all the risk-type sports were very popular, because everybody was rebelling against their parents, or rebelling against the whole system. But those days are over. This is the day of conservatism  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) We choose to believe that the granite is alive. If life is movement, then rock - with its atoms flying around like stars in cosmos - is alive  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) No young kid growing up dreams of someday becoming a businessman. He wants to be a fireman, a sponsored athlete or a forest ranger The Lee Iacoccas, Donald Trumps, and Jack Welchs of the business world are heroes to no one except other businessmen with similar values  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) Personally, I would rather climb in the high mountains. I have always abhorred the tremendous heat, the dirt-filled cracks, the ant-covered foul-smelling trees and bushes which cover the cliffs, the filth and noise of Camp 4 (the climbers’ campground), and worst of all, the multitudes of tourists which abound during the weekends and summer months  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) Traveling is my form of self-education. Every stream I fish now is not as good as it used to be. Traveling is my form of self-education. Every stream I fish now is not as good as it used to be. If you keep your eyes open as you travel around, you realize we are destroying this planet  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) Once you educate yourself, you’re left with choices  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) Going back to a simpler life based on living by sufficiency rather than excess is not a step backward.  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) The goal of climbing big, dangerous mountains should be to attain some sort of spiritual and personal growth, but this won’t happen if you compromise away the entire process.  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) The most important thing is to get the fish in quickly and leave it in the water. Forget the hero pose.  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) We took special pride in the fact that climbing rocks and icefalls had no economic value in society...We were like a wild species living in the edges of an ecosystem - adaptable, resilient and tough.  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) The hardest thing in the world is to simplify your life; it’s so easy to make it complex  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) Yeah, leading an examined life, I always say, is a pain in the ass. It adds an element of complexity to business that most businessmen don’t want to hear about. They just want to call a fabric manufacturer, and say, Hey, give us 10,000 yards of shirting.  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) I think risk is important. I don’t care if it’s a great financial risk or a physical risk. You only get out of something what you put into it and the fact that you are willing to risk something means that you are going to get a lot more out of it.  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) Profit is what happens when you do everything else right  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) How you climb a mountain is more important than reaching the top  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) Remember: if you take bivouac equipment along, you will bivouac  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) The more I make the more I can give away  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) Fear of the unknown is the greatest fear of all  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) The climbing as a whole is not very esthetic or enjoyable; it is merely difficult  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) You climb to the summit and there is nothing there  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) I’m kind of like a samurai. They say if you want to be a samurai, you can’t be afraid of dying, and as soon as you flinch, you get your head cut off. I’m not afraid of losing this business  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) You ask me about the past, you ask me about the future, the only way to be happy is to be living right now  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) The goal of climbing big, dangerous mountains should be to attain some sort of spiritual and personal growth, but this won’t happen if you compromise away the entire process  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) I’m the company philosopher and the burr in the saddle. I’m the one who says we need to try harder, improve the quality of our products, become a part of the political process, help elect people who are good for the environment  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes) A real capitalist knows that $10 given today does a lot more good than $100 given 10 years from now  (Yvon Chouinard Quotes)
