‘We had pierced the veneer of outside things. We had suffered, starved, and triumphed, grovelled down yet grasped at glory, grown bigger in the bigness of the whole. We had seen God in his splenders, heard the text that Nature renders. We had reached the naked soul of man.’

– Ernest Shackleton, South: The Endurance Expedition
