Diary of Robert E. Peary, North Pole Explorer (February - April 1909)

Sir Isaac Newton once said: "I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.".
