Expedition Quotes:

My Antarctic expedition is just about doable, just feasible and that’s what is exciting to me. If I knew it was possible, if I knew I could do it without too much bother, I wouldn’t be interested.

Ben Saunders

The constitution vests the power of declaring war in Congress; therefore no offensive expedition of importance can be undertaken until after they shall have deliberated upon the subject and authorized such a measure.

George Washington

The ultimate camping trip was the Lewis and Clark expedition.

Dave Barry

They have just succeeded in raising the two thousand pounds here, by subscription, that was wanted towards an exploration fund, for fitting out an expedition, that will probably start for the interior of our continent next March.

William John Wills

Good planning is important. I’ve also regarded a sense of humor as one of the most important things on a big expedition. When you’re in a difficult or dangerous situation, or when you’re depressed about the chances of success, someone who can make you laugh eases the tension.

Edmund Hillary

During my time in Pakistan, I was asked to lead an expedition to Azad Kashmir following a devastating earthquake in 2005 that claimed the lives of 80,000 people.

Will Hurd

No one will pay you for planning an expedition at first: you have to work in pubs at weekends so you can pay the gas bills. I joined the Territorial Army, which paid me when I turned up to drill nights, and so did my wife.

Ranulph Fiennes

As a rule, anything that is pretty you avoid when on an expedition in the polar extremes. Normally anything other than white means a hazard such as a crevasse.

Ranulph Fiennes

When I was a kid, I was reliably informed that we’d have gone to Mars by 1985, and of course it’s 2012, and we’re still really no closer to a human expedition to Mars, but that shouldn’t detract from the amazing achievements that are being done on a day-to-day basis by robotic envoys.

Alastair Reynolds

So, for me, I make no difference whether I’m training with my shuttle crew or the Expedition crew. Of course, I think I want to take more care of the Expedition crew, because they’re going to stay there for a long time.

Philippe Perrin

Supplying fuel for a Mars expedition from the lunar surface is often suggested, but it’s hard to make it pay off – Moon bases are expensive, and just buying more rockets to launch fuel from Earth is relatively cheap.

Henry Spencer

The key virtue of orbital assembly is that it eliminates the tight connection between the size of the expedition and the size of the rockets used to launch it.

Henry Spencer

It’s no wonder that new ventures such as The Daily look first to Gawker Media when staffing up. We should not wait for a poaching expedition to pay someone what they deserve. I apologize if that has been the case and will do better in 2012.

Nick Denton

A life lesson for me is, how do you muster the courage to take on a new risk? Whether it’s starting up a business or taking on a new project or expedition. I think the risks that we take are all relative to the risk-taker.

Ann Bancroft

My first expedition was at about the age of eight.

Ann Bancroft

I think the Lewis and Clark Expedition was the greatest undertaking in American History. I think landing a man on the moon pales next to it.

Kathryn Lasky

As our expedition to New York seems likely to be attended with a very fatal Consequence, and ourselves haply censured for undertaking it without assurance of success.

Lewis Hallam

Raising funds for my fourth expedition proved to be very difficult.

Louis Leakey

Having great friends in New York is like having great friends on an expedition into Darkest Africa in the early 19th century. You need them. And you need sponsorship on a daily basis. I have a painter friend here who says, ‘I need two compliments a day just to break even.’ And we gave them to each other, and we got them – and honestly got them.

Allan Gurganus

Also we will be carrying food and clothes for the Expedition Two crew. And as well as spare parts for the EVA that will be conducted from the station in the following months.

Umberto Guidoni

A review of summit day photographs will show that I was clothed in the latest, highest quality, high altitude gear, comparable, if not better, than that worn by the other members of our expedition.

Anatoli Boukreev

We were now back at Smith Landing, and fired with a desire to make another Buffalo expedition on which we should have ampler time and cover more than a mere corner of the range.

Ernest Thompson Seton

I hope I’m still alive to see an expedition set off for Mars.

James E. Gunn

An insuperable obstacle to rapid transit in Africa is the want of carriers, and as speed was the main object of the Expedition under my command, my duty was to lessen this difficulty as much as possible.

Henry Morton Stanley

As soon as the news of the Cabot voyages reached the King of Portugal he arranged to send an expedition of discovery to the far north-west, perhaps to find a northern sea route to Eastern Asia.

Harry Johnston

Every time I’ve been on Everest, people have died, though not in any expedition I was part of.

Kenneth Kamler

Well, we could tell them that we’re here on an archeological expedition.

Edie Adams

Consider what a romantic expedition you are on; take notes.

Anne Boyd

After mature consideration it was unanimously agreed, that, to prevent as much as possible their attempting to return and molest the settlers that may be set down on their lands, a sufficient number of vessels should be hired with all possible expedition for that purpose.

Charles Lawrence

James’s expedition to Scotland is wholly imaginary, though there appears to have been space for it during Henry’s progress to the North to pay his devotions at Beverley Minster.

Charlotte Mary Yonge

In the years after the expedition to Chad, I started the Honnold Foundation, a small nonprofit that was my attempt to do something positive in the world. I sought out projects that both helped the environment and improved peoples’ standards of living. The more I researched, the more I gravitated toward solar.

Alex Honnold

I did this play, ‘Expedition 6,’ that I worked on for three years in between other things. It was a good, interesting time for me because I trained as a theater director, and I went back, and we toured it around.

Bill Pullman

We were in the Arabian Desert for nine months. And I was having the time of my life. It could have been an archeological expedition, a military expedition.

Peter O’Toole

Now my eyes are turned from the South to the North, and I want to lead one more Expedition. This will be the last… to the North Pole.

Ernest Shackleton

I’m getting older, turning 40 this year. I had a period where I thought each expedition had to be something harder, something faster. But you can’t go on like that, or you’re going to die.

Ueli Steck

When it began to grow dark, the Rat, with an air of excitement and mystery, summoned them back into the parlour, stood each of them up alongside of his little heap, and proceeded to dress them up for the coming expedition.

Kenneth Grahame

I am happy now, to recall that I was not only his son but his companion, and whenever there was a hunting expedition or any other pleasure, I was always with him.

John Philip Sousa

When I read about how 200 people died on a polar expedition, I wonder why they didn’t get to know the Inuit people who were around and presumably know something about surviving in the Arctic after living there for thousands of years. Talking to people is a survival mechanism.

Tim Cahill

With EarthEcho Expedition: Acid Apocalypse, we are working with youth leaders and noted experts on the changing chemistry of our ocean to help illuminate one of our most pressing and inscrutable environmental issues.

Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

The goal of each EarthEcho Expedition is to inspire and empower youth around the world with the knowledge and tools to take an active role in protecting critical natural resources in their own communities.

Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

I was never comfortable with the risk of climbing in the Himalayas, or the amount of time in idleness that is involved in the Everest expedition.

Steve Fossett

What you do on a dinosaur expedition is you hike and look at the ground. You find bones sticking out of the dirt and, once you see something, you dig.

Nathan Myhrvold

Outside of my family, I was always inspired by true heroic stories of leadership and survival. For example, the story of the Shackleton expedition, when their ship became lodged in the Antarctic ice pack while exploring.

Christina Koch

Writing a novel is not merely going on a shopping expedition across the border to an unreal land: it is hours and years spent in the factories, the streets, the cathedrals of the imagination.

Janet Frame

A good expedition doesn’t need a leader at all. You are deciding day by day, discussing it in a democratic way.

Reinhold Messner

An account of an expedition is not a novel. Therefore an authentic account can never be given, let alone written down by someone who was not present.

Reinhold Messner

I’ve always liked adventure television. Pre-‘Survivor,’ I did a series on cable called ‘Eco-Challenge,’ an adventure race with experts mainly, and here we have ‘Expedition Impossible.’ I like the outdoors and I like doing something fresh for television you haven’t seen before.

Mark Burnett

So many people wanted an adventure. It was really more about finding the cast that I wanted for ‘Expedition Impossible,’ so it had good diversity, and people could really say, ‘Oh, there’s the firefighters, there’s the team of cops, there’s the grandpa’ – so that you can really relate with them.

Mark Burnett

I’ve gone on a research expedition in the Atlantic Ocean before. I was sick for the entire week after that.

Boyan Slat

Adventure books are my personal favorites. ‘The Endurance,’ a story about Ernest Shackleton’s legendary Antarctica expedition, or ‘Into Thin Air,’ Jon Krakauer’s personal account of the 1996 disaster on Mt Everest, are two notables.

Dean Karnazes

My space expedition has changed my perspective towards people. Looking down at the Earth, we could not see borders or people with different nationalities. It was then that realisation dawned on us that all of us are a group of human beings and citizens of the universe.

Sunita Williams

Very little useful science got done in the space station. NASA never did the experiments needed to develop the technologies required for a genuine interplanetary expedition: centrifugal gravity to avoid bodily harm and a truly closed biosphere.

Gregory Benford

What is Expedition?

A journey undertaken by a group of people with a specific purpose, in particular exploration, research or war.
