You don't have to be a hero to accomplish great things---to compete. You can just be an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals.
— Edmund Hillary

Do you know what a soldier is, young man? He's the chap who makes it possible for civilized folk to despise war.
Allan Massie chap quote

Chap quotes
Picture quote about Chap

News is what a chap who doesn't care much about anything wants to read. And it's only news until he's read it. After that it's dead.
— Evelyn Waugh

You don't have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things -- to compete. You can be just an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals.
— Edmund Hillary

The sound of distant breakers made her heart ache with melancholy. She was in the mood when the sea has a saddening effect upon the nerves. It is only when we are very happy that we can bear to gaze merrily upon the vast and limitless expanse of water, rolling on and on with such persistent, irritating monotony to the accompaniment of our thoughts, whether grave or gay. When they are gay, the waves echo their gaiety; but when they are sad, then every breaker, as it rolls, seems to bring additional sadness and to speak to us of hopelessness and of the pettiness of all our joys.
— chap quotation by Emmuska Orczy
