Mountain Peaks quotes by Mao Zedong
#1. Three Songs 1 Mountain. I whip my quick horse and don't dismount and look back in wonder. The sky is three feet away. 2 Mountain. The sea collapses and the river boils. Innumerable horses race insanely into the peak of battle. 3 Mountain. Peaks pierce the green sky, unblunted. The sky would fall but for the columns of mountains. #Quote by Mao Zedong
Mountain Peaks quotes by Ayn Rand
#2. You have never felt how small you were when looking at the ocean."
He laughed. "Never. Nor looking at the planets. Nor at mountain peaks. Nor at the Grand Canyon. Why should I? When I look at the ocean, I feel the the greatness of man. I think of man's magnificent capacity that created this ship to conquer all that senseless space. When I look at mountain peaks, I think of tunnels and dynamite. When I look at the planets, I think of air planes."
"Yes. And that particular sense of sacred rapture men say they experience in contemplating nature- I've never received it from nature, only from ... " she stopped. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Mountain Peaks quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#3. Reason is the light, the sun of the brain. It is the compass of the mind, the ever-constant Northern Star, the mountain peak that lifts itself above all clouds. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Mountain Peaks quotes by Leslie Stephen
#4. I believe that the ascent of mountains forms an essential chapter in the complete duty of man, and that it is wrong to leave any district without setting foot on its highest peak. #Quote by Leslie Stephen
Mountain Peaks quotes by Hermann Broch
#5. That year it seemed as if the summer were never coming to an end: days of shimmering golden stillness followed each other in equal radiance, as if by their sweetness and peace they wanted to make the war, now in its bloodiest period, appear doubly insensate. As the sun dipped behind the chain of mountain peaks, as the sky paled into tenderer blue, as the road stretched away more peacefully and all life folded in upon itself like the breathing of a sleeper, that stillness grew more and more accessible and acceptable to the human soul. Surely that Sabbath peace lay over the whole of the German fatherland, and in a sudden uprush of yearning the Major thought of his wife and children whom he saw walking over the sunset fields. "I wish this were all over and done with," and Esch could not find any word of comfort for him. Hopeless and dreary this life seemed to both of them, its sole meagre return a walk in the evening landscape which they were both contemplating. It's like a reprieve, thought Esch. And so they went on in silence. #Quote by Hermann Broch
Mountain Peaks quotes by Zig Ziglar
#6. The only way to reach the mountain peaks of life is to forget about self and help other people reach greater heights. #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Mountain Peaks quotes by Bruce Coville
#7. Across the gently rolling hills,
Beyond high mountain peaks,
Along the shores of distant seas,
There's something my heart seeks.

But there's no peace in wandering,
The road's not made for rest.
And footsore fools will never know
What home might suit them best.

But, oh, the things that I have seen,
The secret paths I've trod,
The hidden corners of the world
Known to none but me and God.

Yes, the world was meant for knowing,
And feet were meant to roam.
But one who's always going
Will never find a home.

Oh, where's the thread that binds me,
The voice that calls me back?
Where's the love that finds me -
And what's the root I lack? #Quote by Bruce Coville
Mountain Peaks quotes by David Lereah
#8. Home sales are coming down from the mountain peak, but they will level out at a high plateau - a plateau that is higher than previous peaks in the housing cycle. #Quote by David Lereah
Mountain Peaks quotes by Percy James Brebner
#9. The paths to mountain peaks are ever rugged, but men reach the summits. #Quote by Percy James Brebner
Mountain Peaks quotes by Katie Kacvinsky
#10. People are like their own ecosystems, little planets made up of islands and climates and forecasts. Some of us carry jagged mountain peaks, and some of us carry lakes. #Quote by Katie Kacvinsky
Mountain Peaks quotes by Dorothy Gilman
#11. Once upon a time, [the guru] said, when God had finished making the world, he wanted to leave behind Him for man a piece of His own divinity, a spark of His essence, a promise to man of what he could become, with effort. He looked for a place to hide this Godhead because, he explained, what man could find too easily would never be valued by him.
"Then you must hide the Godhead on the highest mountain peak on earth," said one of His councilors.
God shook His head. "No, for man is an adventuresome creature and he will soon enough learn to climb the highest mountain peaks."
"Hide it then, O Great One, in the depths of the earth!"
"I think not," said God, "for man will one day discover that he can dig into the deepest parts of the earth."
"In the middle of the ocean then, Master?"
God shook His head. "I've given man a brain, you see, and one day he'll learn to build ships and cross the mightiest oceans."
"Where then, Master?" cried His councilors.
God smiled. "I'll hide it in the most inaccessible place of all, and the one place that man will never think to look for it. I'll hide it deep inside of man himself. #Quote by Dorothy Gilman
Mountain Peaks quotes by Shel Silverstein
#12. An oak tree and a rosebush grew,
Young and green together,
Talking the talk of growing things-
Wind and water and weather.
And while the rosebush sweetly bloomed
The oak tree grew so high
That now it spoke of newer things-
Eagles, mountain peaks and sky.
"I guess you think you're pretty great,"
The rose was heard to cry,
Screaming as loud as it possibly could
To the treetop in the sky.
"And now you have no time for flower talk,
Now that you've grown so tall."
"It's not so much that I've grown," said the tree,
"It's just that you've stayed so small. #Quote by Shel Silverstein
Mountain Peaks quotes by Saint Augustine Of Hippo
#13. People are moved to wonder by mountain peaks, by vast waves of the sea, by broad waterfalls on rivers, by the all-embracing extent of the ocean, by the revolutions of the stars. But in themselves they are uninterested. #Quote by Saint Augustine Of Hippo
Mountain Peaks quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#14. My grief is my castle, which like an eagle's nest is built high up on the mountain peaks among the clouds; nothing can storm it. From it I fly down into reality to seize my prey; but i do not remain down there, I bring it home with me, and this prey is a picture I weave into the tapestries of my palace. There I live as one dead. I immerse everything I have experienced in a baptism of forgetfulness unto an eternal remembrance. Everything finite and accidental is forgotten and erased. Then I sit like an old man, grey-haired and thoughtful, and explain the pictures in a voice as soft as a whisper; and at my side a child sits and listens, although he remembers everything before I tell it. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Mountain Peaks quotes by Edna St. Vincent Millay
#15. Now by the Path I Climbed, I Journey Back

Now by the path I climbed, I journey back.
The oaks have grown; I have been long away.
Taking with me your memory and your lack
I now descend into a milder day;
Stripped of your love, unburdened of my hope,
Descend the path I mounted from the plain;
Yet steeper than I fancied seems the slope
And stonier, now that I go down again.
Warm falls the dusk; the clanking of a bell
Faintly ascends upon this heavier air;
I do recall those grassy pastures well:
In early spring they drove the cattle there.
And close at hand should be a shelter, too,
From which the mountain peaks are not in view. #Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay
Mountain Peaks quotes by Gloria Vanderbilt
#16. Many times, working is kind of like channeling, and I really don't know what's going to fall on the page. I just did this image of a fat girl and put her on a tiny mountain peak of grass that she's walking over. It just amused me. #Quote by Gloria Vanderbilt
Mountain Peaks quotes by Amy Tan
#17. We were like two people standing apart on separate mountain peaks, recklessly leaning forward to throw stones at one another, unaware of the dangerous chasm that separated us. #Quote by Amy Tan
Mountain Peaks quotes by Thomas W. Higginson
#18. Great men are rarely isolated mountain peaks; they are the summits of ranges. #Quote by Thomas W. Higginson
Mountain Peaks quotes by Khalil Gibran
#19. I have passed the mountain peak and my soul is soaring in the firmament of Complete and unbounded freedom; I am in comfort, I am in peace. #Quote by Khalil Gibran
Mountain Peaks quotes by Dew Platt
#20. They knew where they were headed but they didn't know where they were going. Retina shrugged the thought. Roma complained about the possibility they were walking into a trap. After all, he was one of the scientists that decided Solstice's fate. Retina was adamant no one knew him. Lorenzo didn't care about anything much but reaching Zharfar after Retina surgically removed his Unicell Groper.
They were headed to Africa in what seemed a semi commercial private plane. Eight people including the pilots travelled. They weren't supposed to know any more particulars. But Lorenzo's watch placed the coordinates in both numbers and words. They were in West Africa, country Nigeria, state Osun, and township Isura. None of them had ever heard of it, the town, but they were there. And they had travelled for miles, over highly forested nonresidential areas and mountain peaks before they stopped.
Wherever they were going was greatly isolated, Roma thought. #Quote by Dew Platt
Mountain Peaks quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#21. Humility is the mother of giants. One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peak. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Mountain Peaks quotes by Noah Wareness
#22. The patches are the stories. Hold onto that. And the muddy zigzag of ducktape against the cracked doorglass. There's four kids who sleep here, a nuff for the fingers on each otherses hands. There's room in each of them for one important thing. They're a band. It's not they're in a band. They're a band. Four spikes of ducktape, up and down, like mountain peaks or a sawblade. Every band's got a sign, something to sew on your jacket, gouge on the wall at a show. Four spikes up and down say MEATHEADS, and you picked a fucked window to knock at, tourist. They're the best band in the world. #Quote by Noah Wareness
Mountain Peaks quotes by John Muir
#23. Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountain days, days in whose light everything seems equally divine, opening a thousand windows to show us God. #Quote by John Muir
Mountain Peaks quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#24. Men lived among mighty mountains and eternal forests for ages before they realized that they were poetical; it may reasonably be inferred that some of our descendants may see the chimney-pots as rich a purple as the mountain-peaks, and find the lamp-posts as old and natural as the trees. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Mountain Peaks quotes by Ayn Rand
#25. I think of man's magnificent capacity that created this ship to conquer all that senseless space. When I look at mountain peaks, I think of tunnels and dynamite. When I look at the planets, I think of airplanes #Quote by Ayn Rand
Mountain Peaks quotes by Anthony Powell
#26. For my own part, I liked Lady Warminster, although at the same time never wholly at ease in her presence. She was immaculately free from any of the traditional blemishes of a mother-in-law; agreeable always; entertaining; even, in her own way, affectionate; but always a little alarming: an elegant, deeply experienced bird – perhaps a bird of prey – ready to sweep down and attack from the frozen mountain peaks upon which she preferred herself to live apart. #Quote by Anthony Powell
Mountain Peaks quotes by Everett Ruess
#27. Always I shall be one who loves the wilderness:
Swaggers and softly creeps between the mountain peaks; I shall listen long to the sea's brave music; I shall sing my song above the shriek of desert winds. #Quote by Everett Ruess
Mountain Peaks quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
#28. I never set limits or created mental barriers. You may have read that I imagined my biceps as big as mountain peaks when I did my curling exercises. This visualization process was essential if I was to gain the kind of mass and size I needed to win the mr Olympia contest against monsters like Sergio Olivia and Lou ferrigno. #Quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger
Mountain Peaks quotes by Ed Macauley
#29. A lot of us would like to move mountains, but few of us are willing to practice on small hills. #Quote by Ed Macauley
Mountain Peaks quotes by Dogen
#30. Do not miss the opportunity of offering even a single drop into the ocean of merit or a grain atop the mountain of the roots of beneficial activity. #Quote by Dogen
Mountain Peaks quotes by Jack Kerouac
#31. I nudged myself closer to the ledge and closed my eyes and thought 'Oh what a life this is, why do we have to be born in the first place, and only so we can have our poor gentle flesh laid out to such impossible horrors as huge mountains and rock and empty space,' and with horror I remembered the famous Zen saying, 'When you get to the top of a mountain, keep climbing.' The saying made my hair stand on end; it had been such cute poetry sitting on Alvah's straw mats. #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Mountain Peaks quotes by Charles S. Houston
#32. When men climb on a great mountain together the rope between them is more than a mere physical aid to the ascent; it is a symbol of the spirit of the enterprise. It is a symbol of men banded together in a common effort of will and strength, not against an imagined foeman of the instant but against their only true enemies; inertia, cowardice, greed, ignorance and all weaknesses of the spirit. #Quote by Charles S. Houston
Mountain Peaks quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#33. In spite the mountains of books written about art, no precise definition of art has been constructed. And the reason for this is that the conception of art has been based on the conception of beauty. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Mountain Peaks quotes by Johannes De Silentio
#34. Should one of them after having caught the greatness of Abraham's deed, but also the appallingness of it, venture out on the road, I would saddle my horse and ride along with him. At every stop before we came to the mountain in Moriah I would explain to him that he could still turn back, could rue the misunderstanding that he was called to be tried in a conflict of this nature, could confess that he lacked the courage, so that if God wanted Isaac God must take him himself. #Quote by Johannes De Silentio
Mountain Peaks quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#35. Nothing in this place is sexy," I told him, and he[Dex] laughed.
"Oh, come on, Izzy. Even you, Miss Anti-Romance, can admit there's something just a little bit appealing about making out in a candlelit cave."
"Bats live in caves," I reminded him. "And where there are bats, There's bat poop. Lot's of it. Did you know there's a cave in Mexico where they have a whole mountain made out guano? #Quote by Rachel Hawkins
Mountain Peaks quotes by Mark Cuban
#36. Do the things that make perfect sense to you, [and] don't be afraid to shout it from the mountain tops just because it's outside the box or against the grain in your industry. More often than not, you're probably going to be right. #Quote by Mark Cuban
Mountain Peaks quotes by Therese Of Lisieux
#37. I have always wanted to become a saint. Unfortunately, when I have compared myself with the saints, I have always found that there is the same difference between the saints and me as there is between a mountain whose summit is lost in the clouds and a humble grain of sand trodden underfoot by passers-by. #Quote by Therese Of Lisieux
Mountain Peaks quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#38. People are going to see you talking to nobody and think you're weird." This amused him.

It neither amused nor worried Blue. She'd gone through eighteen years as the town psychic's daughter, and now, in her senior year, she had already held every single possible conversation about that fact. She had been shunned and embraced and bullied and cajoled. She was going to hell, she had the straight line to spiritual nirvana. Her mother was a hack, her mother was a witch. Blue dressed like a hobo, Blue dressed like a fashion mogul. She was untouchably hilarious, she was a friendless bitch. It had faded into monotonous background noise. The disheartening and lonesome upshot was that Blue Sargent was the strangest thing in the halls of Mountain View High School. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Mountain Peaks quotes by Paulo Coelho
#39. You don't need to climb a mountain to know that it's high. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Mountain Peaks quotes by Zig Ziglar
#40. You can't climb a smooth mountain #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Mountain Peaks quotes by Stephen Kendrick
#41. There is an old story from the Eastern tradition that says that when the gods created the universe, they found a place for everything but the truth, and this created a problem, because the gods did not want this wisdom discovered right away. One of the gods suggested the top of the highest mountain, another the farthest star, a third spoke up for the dark side of the moon, and another for the bottom of the deepest ocean. Finally, they decide to place truth inside the human heart. In that way, we would search for it all over the universe, with the secret within us all the time. #Quote by Stephen Kendrick
Mountain Peaks quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#42. Not since Moses has anyone seen a mountain so greatly. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Mountain Peaks quotes by Shannon Hale
#43. When the mountain quaked
Like an elbow's nudge
Like a shout that something is wrong
The people awoke and
Knew, yes, knew, that bandits had come #Quote by Shannon Hale
Mountain Peaks quotes by Tom Hiddleston
#44. You never know what's around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you've climbed a mountain. #Quote by Tom Hiddleston
Mountain Peaks quotes by Princess Shikishi
#45. In snowbound, voiceless, mountain depths, to herald spring, pine trees sound in tune. #Quote by Princess Shikishi
Mountain Peaks quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#46. I never weary of great churches. It is my favorite kind of mountain scenery. Mankind was never so happily inspired as when it made a cathedral. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Mountain Peaks quotes by Savannah Stuart
#47. He handed his brother the drink and sat beside him. Drifts of snow skittered past the wall of glass in flurries. "How was the evening?"
Cyn took a swig of his drink. "She's not interested in any of them, so do not worry."
He automatically straightened. "I am not worried."
As the leader of the mountain clan, he was not concerned about a human female other than her capacity as his responsibility.
Con was silent for a long moment. "She is not?"
"No. #Quote by Savannah Stuart
Mountain Peaks quotes by Peter Matthiessen
#48. The light irradiates white peaks of Annapurna marching down the sky, in the great rampart that spreads east and west for eighteen hundred miles, the Himalaya- the alaya (abode, or home) of hima (snow).Hibiscus, frangipani, bougainvillea: seen under snow peaks, these tropical blossoms become the flowers of heroic landscapes. Macaques scamper in green meadow, and a turquoise roller spins in a golden light. Drongos, rollers, barbets, and white Eqyptian vulture are the common birds, and all have close relatives in East Africa. #Quote by Peter Matthiessen
Mountain Peaks quotes by John F. Kennedy
#49. There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation many never come again. But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texa ... s? We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Mountain Peaks quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#50. For I was reared in the great city, pent with cloisters dim,and saw naught lovely but the sky and stars.But thou, my babe! Shalt wander like a breeze By lakes and sandy shores, beneath the cragsOf ancient mountains, and beneath the clouds,Which image in their bulk both lakes and shoresAnd mountain crags: so shall thou see and hearThe lovely shapes and sounds intelligible Of that eternal language, which thy GodUtters, who from eternity doth teachHimself in all, and al things in himselfGreat universal teacher! He shall moldThy spirit and by giving , make it ask. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Mountain Peaks quotes by Charles Jefferson
#51. The world did not appreciate Abraham Lincoln until he died. His great figure has been looming higher each succeeding decade. We understand Jesus better than any other generation..A great man is like a mountain, you cannot appreciate when standing at its base. #Quote by Charles Jefferson
Mountain Peaks quotes by Jake Gyllenhaal
#52. 'Brokeback Mountain' takes all your conceptions of America, and the Western, and cowboys, and sexuality, and love, and it stirs them all up. #Quote by Jake Gyllenhaal
Mountain Peaks quotes by Victor Fung
#53. For the future world-trading regime to mirror economic reality and to allow the use of modern business strategies, we need a single overarching multilateral framework for trade. We can have either a flat world or a patchwork of crisscrossing mountain ranges and tunnels. #Quote by Victor Fung
Mountain Peaks quotes by Rumi

The sound of salaams rising as
waves diminish down in prayer,

hoping for some trace of the one
whose trace does not appear. If

anyone asks you to say who you
are, say without hesitation,

soul withing soul within soul.
There's a pearl diver who does

not know how to swim! No matter.
Pearls are handed him on the

beach. We lovers laugh to hear,
"This should be more that and

that more this,"coming from
people sitting in a wagon tilted

in a ditch. Going in search of
the heart, I found a huge rose

under my feet, and roses under
all our feet! How to say this

to someone who denies it? The
robe we wear is the sky's cloth.

Everything is soul and flowering.


I open and fill with love and
other objects evaporate. All

the learning in books stays put
on the shelf. Poetry, the dear

words and images of song, comes
down over me like mountain water.


Any cup I hold fills with wine
that lovers drink. Every word

I say opens into mystery. Any way I turn I see brilliance. #Quote by Rumi
Mountain Peaks quotes by Wayne Dyer
#55. See the genius in everyone you encounter. Just as the mountain cannot crack a nut though it can carry a forest on its back, so too does every living creature have its own perfection built into it. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Mountain Peaks quotes by Tan Twan Eng
#56. On a mountain above the clouds once lived a man who had been the gardener of the emperor of Japan. #Quote by Tan Twan Eng
Mountain Peaks quotes by Swami Dhyan Giten
#57. To see life from the perspective of intuition is to have vision. To see life from the perspective of intuition is to see life from the perspective of wholeness. It is to understand that life is basically one and that we are part of life. While the intellect can only see the details, intuition sees the whole. To see life from the perspective of intuition is like looking at life from the summit of the mountain, whereas seeing life only from the perspective of intellect is like looking at life from the foot of the mountain. Through learning to listen to our intuition, we learn to be in contact with the Whole. #Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten
Mountain Peaks quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#58. Singing is my pleasure, but not in church, for the parson said the gargoyles must remain on the outside, not seek room in the choir stalls. So I sing inside the mountain of my flesh, and my voice is as slender as a reed and my voice has no lard in it. When I sing the dogs sit quiet and people who pass in the night stop their jabbering and discontent and think of other times, when they were happy. And I sing of other times, when I was happy, though I know that these are figments of my mind and nowhere I have been. But does it matter if the place cannot be mapped as long as I can still describe it? #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Mountain Peaks quotes by Lity Munshi
#59. Men are not mountain or rocks. Men are not sexual need for women. Men are to women a medium to touch love . A medium to know how it is to be loved . How love looks like . More over how her playing company react in absence in her .no sir you are not controller. She is calm and settled by heart . At right time she will see someone roaming around her ,definitely pick up the right one. Men are banging their physical ego. But women are a wheel of their power. #Quote by Lity Munshi
Mountain Peaks quotes by Freya Stark
#60. The true call of the desert, of the mountains, or the sea, is their silence - free of the networks of dead speech. #Quote by Freya Stark
Mountain Peaks quotes by Tracy Letts
#61. What they frequently want to do with a movie is, they want to cut out the valleys and just show the peaks. And valleys are important; the valleys make the peaks stand out. #Quote by Tracy Letts
Mountain Peaks quotes by Erhard Loretan
#62. Keeping in mind the old mountain adage that the longer you take to set up your bivy site, the shorter the bivy you have to endure, we ended up taking two hours to dig the snow cave. #Quote by Erhard Loretan
Mountain Peaks quotes by Santosh
#63. If you have strong will and determination then, No mountain is high enough to climb...
All you need is discover your passion and follow your dreams,
don't chase Luck, make it follow you .... #Quote by Santosh
Mountain Peaks quotes by George Washington
#64. Things in life will not always run smoothly. Sometimes we will be rising toward the heights - then all will seem to reverse itself and start downward. The great fact to remember is that the trend of civilization itself is forever upward; that a line drawn through the middle of the peaks and the valleys of the centuries always has an upward trend. #Quote by George Washington
