A Few Words:
"For life–which is in any way worthy, is like ascending a mountain ... you find as you ascend that ... you not only get a clearer view of Heaven, but that you gain a wider view of earth, and that your horizon is perpetually growing larger."
-- Endicott Peabody
"You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art to finding your way in the lower regions by the memory of what you have seen when you were higher up. When you can no longer see, you can at least still know."
-- Rene Daumal
