“When you stand on the top, especially if it is the top of an eight-thousander - in all directions, as far as the eye can see, the mountains stretch. It seems that the whole world is ridges covered with eternal snows and nothing else. But we know that this is not so. There, further - seas and oceans, forests and gardens, beautiful cities ... This is how it is in my life. Mountaineering is a favorite business, a profession, but apart from it there are family and friends, songs and books, theaters and exhibitions. All this is also very interesting and dear to me. All this is my life."
