mountains

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on animals, birds, mountains, plants, and streams

Each stone, each bend cries welcome to him. He identifies with the mountains and the streams, he sees something of his own soul in the plants and the animals and the birds of the field.

A Quote by John Muir on forests, wildnerness, land, mountains, woods, nature, and environment

Few are altogether deaf to the preaching of pine trees. Their sermons on the mountains go to our hearts; and if people in general could be got into the woods, even for once, to hear the trees speak for themselves, all difficulties in the way of forest preservation would vanish.

A Quote by John Muir on nature, pleasure, mountains, earth, environment, land, and freedom

Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer. Camp out among the grasses and gentians of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature's darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but nature's sources never fail.

A Quote by George Fowler on artisan, atrocities, fear, footnote, god, holocausts, jeopardy, mountains, nightmares, peace, and personal experience

Now I understood for the first time that all these problems are caused by a race asleep and thrashing about in its panicked nightmares. There will be wars and holocausts and genocides as long as God is portrayed and thought of as a tight-minded legislator, a feudal lord, an offended King, a hypersensitive Artisan – even if church managers condescendingly tack onto that ridiculous list the not-very-convincing footnote that He is also loving. As long as people dream that they are insecure and needy in some sort of eternal jeopardy, there will be atrocities. But as the human race grows up spiritually, and as individuals gain a personal experience of the God they have been worshipping in fear, they will recognize that much of their theology and philosophy is built on nightmares. That will be the day of peace. I suddenly found myself unwilling to sit it out in the mountains of Utah. I wanted to play an active role in the process of the world’s awakening.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on paulo, coelho, manual, climbing, and mountains

The way up to the top of the mountain is always longer than you think.
Don’t fool yourself, the moment will arrive when what seemed so near is still very far.

A Quote by Vikram Oberoi on wind, journey, mountains, inertia, and pull

When the wind calls,
 You know,
 That somewhere in the mountains,
 It has found the answers that you were looking for.
 The pull of the horizon overcomes the inertia of reason...
 And you just have to go
