Famous quotes containing the word mountains:

    Here among the mountains the pinions of thought should be strong, and one should see the errors of men from a calmer height of love and wisdom.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Have We not made the earth as a cradle and the mountains as pegs? And We created you in pairs, and We appointed your sleep for a rest; and We appointed night for a garment, and We appointed day for a livelihood. And We have built above you seven strong ones, and We appointed a blazing lamp and have sent down out of the rain-clouds water cascading that We may bring forth thereby grain and plants, and gardens luxuriant.
    —Qur’An. “The Tiding,” 78:6-16, trans. by Arthur J. Arberry (1955)

    The Mississippi, the Ganges, and the Nile,... the Rocky Mountains, the Himmaleh, and Mountains of the Moon, have a kind of personal importance in the annals of the world.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
