Mountains

Famous quotes containing the word mountains:

    It is the sorrow; shall it melt? Ah, water
    Would gush, flush, green these mountains and these valleys
    And we rebuild our cities, not dream of islands.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    And open field, through which the pathway wound,
    And homeward led my steps. Magnificent
    The morning rose, in memorable pomp,
    Glorious as e’er I had beheld—in front,
    The sea lay laughing at a distance; near,
    The solid mountains shone, bright as the clouds,
    Grain-tinctured, drenched in empyrean light;
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    Ellie: A soul is a very expensive thing to keep: much more so than a motor car. Shotover: Is it? How much does your soul eat? Ellie: Oh, a lot. It eats music and pictures and books and mountains and lakes and beautiful things to wear and nice people to be with.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
