Thread Starter 
I have to make my senior quote for high school today. I have no ideas and I have a whole little box to fill. So I wanna put skiing in somehow. Anybody have any good quotes relating to skiing?

"Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
-- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), German writer, scientist, master of poetry, drama and novel

On moving to a ski town & living the life:
"if you dont do it this year you will be one year older when you do"
-Warren Miller, every movie

2 from the wild woman

"Powder snow skiing is not fun. It's life, fully lived, life lived in a blaze of reality. "(Dolores LaChapelle)

"Joy is the response of a lover receiving what he loves. This is the joy we feel when skiing powder... This overflowing gratitude is what produces the absolutely stupid, silly grins that we always flash at one another at the bottom of a powder run. We all agree that we never see these grins anywhere else in life." (Delores LaChapelle) [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

"Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose power of judgement. Go some distance away because a lack of harmony or proportion is more readily seen." (Leonardo da Vinci)

"the way i see it, it's death versus glory"

If you've seen the film that quote comes from, you'll know why it is the best ski quote ever.

dang, I forgot Schmidt's statement.

that's the best line in TBOA. 2d best line is Plake stopping what he is saying, pausing for the sound of the avy cannon, and saying "that sounds HOT!"

My Highschool Yearbook quote is in my signature... Steal it if you want! [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

edit: Oh yeah, for those of you who don't know, Trevor Petersen was a very accomplished Big Mountain / Extreme skier who died in an avalanche a couple years ago.

"Dude, no friends on Powder days"

Can't remember if I said dude or not....

Through the years, as we get older and fatter, there's skiing. The one sport where gravity is your friend.
