Impossible Is Possible

Nothing is impossible

“Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done.” Robert A. Heinlein

There are no limits to human endurance and power, that with courage anything can be achieved.

Napoleon clung to the belief that no task was beyond his capacity to achieve, that the word ‘impossible’ should not find a place in his vocabulary. It was this firm conviction which guided him all the way through.

Once upon a time, climbing the Everest was considered beyond human capacity. Mallory and Irwin, to mention the first two who died while attempting an ascent on Everest, refused to subscribe to the theory. They felt they could put their all against the hazards of the climb. They knew the risk involved in the enterprise. They also knew the dictum, ‘Nothing dared nothing achieved’. They were swept away by an avalanche . However the spirit of adventure did not die.

It continued to burn bright through an elite band of people. Again and again, expeditions were launched till, at last, Hillary and Tenzing Norgay stood atop the highest peak in the summer of 1953. They had made the impossible possible.

Tabei, a women who turned impossible into possible. A woman climbing the Everest seemed very foolish. Yet, junko Tabei of Japan thought otherwise. She felt, deep within that what man could do, woman could do as well. And she turned the impossible in to possible when she became the first woman to scale the Everest.
