“If you have men…

“If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don’t want them, I want men who will come if there is no road at all” — Dr. David Livingston

I saw this quote at an excellent exhibit on Dr. Livingston in Edinburgh at the National Library of Scotland. As the 1000 mile dog sled race, Yukon Quest, is currently on and the Iditarod to come in March, I often think of this quote and the men and women who run these non-mechanized journeys in a world that has embraced technology at neck-breaking speed.
