The following writing is what Scott wrote about his mother, Hannah when the boat had left New Zealand in 1910.
"My own dearest mother, I quite understand and anticipated your anxiety concerning our spiritual welfare. I read the Church service every Sunday on our voyage to Melbourne and I propose to do the same with equal regularity throughout the voyage. You need not have any anxiety on this point."

  The following is one of Scott's famous quotes.
"Had we lived, I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman. These rough notes and our dead bodies must tell the tale..."

This is one of the Huskies that died on his expeditions, not being able to survive the cold. I think this could possibly still lie there.
  This is what Scott wrote in one of his last diary entries.
"The desperate struggle to cover the more than 800 miles (1,300 kilometers) from the pole back to base." (Please note:I think this entry has had its wording changed slightly so may be false, but the original entry did run along these lines.)

"Hey, where are ya taking that stone Fella!"
  Scott wrote...
"The pole, yes, but under very different circumstances to those expected... Great God! But this is an awful place and terrible enough for us to have laboured to it without the reward of priority. Now for the run home and a desperate struggle. I wonder if we can do it!"
