The three rules of mountaineering:
1. It's always further than it looks.
2. It's always taller than it looks.
3. And it's always harder than it looks.

Three things in life that make a good person: Sincerity, Hard work, Compassion.
Three things in life that can destroy a person: Pride, Greed, Anger.
Three things in life that is truly constant: Father, Son, Holy Ghost.
