These descents of mine beneath the sea seemed to partake of a real cosmic character. First of all there was the complete and utter loneliness and isolation, a feeling wholly unlike the isolation felt when removed from fellow men by mere distance ... . It was a loneliness more akin to a first venture upon the moon or Venus than that from a plane in mid-ocean or a stance on Mount Everest: no whit more wonderful than these feats, but different.
The view we enjoyed from the summit [of Mount Rainier] could hardly be surpassed in sublimity and grandeur; but one feels far from home so high in the sky, so much so that one is inclined to guess that, apart from the acquisition of knowledge and the exhilaration of climbing, more pleasure is to be found at the foot of the mountains than on their tops. Doubly happy, however, is the man to whom lofty mountain tops are within reach, for the lights that shine there illumine all that lies below.john muir
Of all the fire-mountains which, like beacons, once blazed along the Pacific Coast, Mount Rainier is the noblest.john muir
Still is thy name in high account, And still thy verse has charms, Sir David Lindesay of the Mount, Lord Lion King-at-arms!
Man, the two-fold creature, apprehends The two-fold manner, in and outwardly, And nothing in the world comes single to him. A mere itself, cup, column, or candlestick, All patterns of what shall be in the Mount; The whole temporal show related royally, And build up to eterne significance Through the open arms of God.
O thou who art able to write a Book, which once in the two centuries or oftener there is a man gifted to do, envy not him whom they name City-builder, and inexpressibly pity him whom they name Conqueror or City-burner! Thou too art a Conqueror and Victor; but of the true sort, namely over the Devil: thou too hast built what will outlast all marble and metal, and be a wonder-bringing City of the Mind, a Temple and Seminary and Prophetic Mount, whereto all kindreds of the Earth will pilgrim.thomas carlyle
Parasnath, a mountain in Bihar of great sanctity; it is the eastern, as Mount Abu is the western metropolis of Jain worship and pilgrimage. Ten thousand, annually, from distant parts of India, visit the scene of Nirvana or beatific annihilation of the ten of the 24 deified saints or Thirthankars, who are the objects of Jain adoration; and from the last of these, Parswa or Parswanatha, the hill originally called samet Sikhar took its better known name as Parasnath.Subodh Kapoor
The Parable of the Trees by Jotahm delivered to the king and people from Mount Gerizim; he then fled for his life.
If all of the New Testament had been lost, it has been said, and only the Sermon on the Mount had managed to survive these two thousand years of history, we would still have all that is necessary for following the teachings of Jesus the Christ..... Buddhist scripture is much more voluminous than the Bible, but... if everything else were lost, we would need nothing more than the Dhammapada to follow the way of the Buddha.
Grow as a palm-tree on God's Mount Zion; howbeit shaken with winds, yet the root is fast.
But in the glances of his eye, A penetrating, keen, and sly Expression found its home; The flash of that satiric rage, Which, bursting on the early stage, Branded the vices of the age, And broke the keys of Rome. :;:;:;:;:;:;:;:;:;:;*:;:;:;:;:;:;:;:;:;:;*:;:;:;:;:;:;:;:;:;:;* Still is thy name in high account, And still thy verse has charms, Sir David Lindesay of the Mount, Lord Lion King-at-arms!
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said "Because it is there." Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there.
The path which leads to the Mount bf ascension does not lie among flowers; and he who travels it must climb the cold hillside, he must have his feet cut by the pointed rocks, he must faint in the dark valley, he must not seldom have his rest at midnight on the desert sand.henry giles
It is not with a rush and a spring that we are to reach Christ's character, and attain to perfect saintship; but step by step, foot by foot, hand over hand, we are slowly and often painfully to Mount the ladder that rests on earth, and rises to heaven.thomas guthrie
They grew in beauty side by side,They filled one home with glee:Their graves are severed far and wideBy Mount and stream and sea.felicia hemans

Public policy is a high horse to Mount, and is difficult to ride when you have mounted it.

Alternate translation: Two gates the silent courts of sleep adorn, That of pale ivory, this of lucid horn. Through this, true visions take their airy way, Through that, false phantoms Mount the realms of day. Book VII If Heav'n thou can'st not bend, Hell thou shalt move.
One might compare the relation of the ego to the id with that between a rider and his horse . The horse provides the locomotor energy, and the rider has the prerogative of determining the goal and of guiding the movements of his powerful Mount towards it. But all too often in the relations between the ego and the id we find a picture of the less ideal situation in which the rider is obliged to guide his horse in the direction in which it itself wants to go.
