Douglas Mawson
If we ignore the facts contained in one part of the world, surely we are hampering scientific advance.
Mawson quotes
We had found an accursed country. On the fringe of an unspanned continent along whose gelid coast our comrades had made their homeŚwe knew not whereŚwe dwelt where the chill breath of a vast, Polar wilderness, quickening to the rushing might of eternal blizzards, surged to the northern seas.
