Again, Shackleton set the tone by his own example. “His unfailing cheeriness means a lot to a band of disappointed explorers like ourselves,” Orde-Lees wrote. “He is one of the greatest optimists I have ever know. He is not content with saying. ‘It will all come out right in the end.’ It is always otherwise with him. He merely says that this is but a little setback not altogether unforeseen and he immediately commences to modify his program to accord with it,

even working his future plans out to given dates and to meet various possible contingencies.”
