Mountain Quotes

Religious awe is the same organic thrill which we feel in a forest at twilight, or in a mountain gorge.

William James

Sin is like a mountain with two aspects according to whether it is viewed before or after it has been reached: yet both aspects are real.

A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?

Kahlil Gibran

Any coward can sit at home and criticize a pilot for flying into a mountain in a fog. But I would rather by far die on a mountainside than in bed.

Charles Lindbergh

Winners take time to relish their work, knowing that scaling the mountain is what makes the view from the top so exhilarating.

Denis Waitley

Doubt makes the mountain which faith can move.

Proverb

It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.

Edmund Hillary

Chinese Proverbs

It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.

Edmund Hillary

"Equestrian," by the by, is the gayest word in the English language. In fact, I thought Brokeback Mountain should have been called "Two Equestrians."

If it were not my purpose to combine barbarian things with things Hellenic, to traverse and civilize every continent, to search out the uttermost parts of land and sea, to push the bounds of Macedonia to the farthest Ocean, and to disseminate and shower the blessings of the Hellenic justice and peace over every nation, I should not be content to sit quietly in the luxury of idle power, but I should emulate the frugality of Diogenes. But as things are, forgive me Diogenes, that I imitate Herakles, and emulate Perseus, and follow in the footsteps of Dionysos, the divine author and progenitor of my family, and desire that victorious Hellenes should dance again in India and revive the memory of the Bacchic revels among the savage mountain tribes beyond the Kaukasos

Alexander III

Billy Graham

Think naught a trifle, though it small appear; sands make the mountain, moments make the year, and trifles, life. Your care to trifles give, else you may die ere you have learned to live.

Edward Young

A grain of sand leads to the fall of a mountain when the moment has come for the mountain to fall.

Ernest Renan
