Heaven knows

“As to Shackleton’s capacity as a leader and his staying powers, I think you and I take the same view. He looks strong enough, but it is clear I think that he is not absolutely sound, and Heaven knows what may happen if he starts on his journey Pole-ward.”
— Scott Keltie, RGS, to Robert Scott
