Darby Allin (via The Athletic) on climbing Mount Everest: “If I die there, I’m at peace. I’ve lived more in the last two years than people do in a lifetime.”

Why he chose to be homeless:

“I chose to be homeless because I wanted to kill all the comfort zones I had and start risking my life. I’ve just been pushing it ever since. I saw a lot of young guys. They wake up, they sit on the couch, and they watch cat compilations on YouTube. They have that comfort zone. Before you know it, it’s already 5 in the afternoon.

When you’re homeless, you have no choice but to wake up and start grinding. It taught me the work ethic of not being comfortable; the biggest times you grow in life are when you’re uncomfortable.”
