Famous quotes containing the word mountains:

    The whole world is an omen and a sign. Why look so wistfully in a corner? Man is the Image of God. Why run after a ghost or a dream? The voice of divination resounds everywhere and runs to waste unheard, unregarded, as the mountains echo with the bleatings of cattle.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)
