I have always wanted to be both man and woman, to incorporate the strongest and richest parts of my mother and father within/into me — to share valleys and mountains upon my body the way the earth does in hills and peaks.
Live and lie reclined On the hills like Gods together, careless of mankind. For they lie beside their nectar, and the bolts are hurled Far below them in the Valleys, and the clouds are lightly curled Round their golden houses, girdled with the gleaming world.Tennyson
The travel writer seeks the world we have lost — the lost Valleys of the imagination.alexander cockburn
Climb the steep Cold Mountain way Roads to Cold Mountain are many and never ending The Valleys are long and deep, the peaks piled high The streams are wide, the grass is thick The moss is slippery though there is no rain The pines sigh though there is no wind Who can escape the snares of the world And come to sit with me among the white clouds?han shan
In the greenest of our Valleys By good angels tenanted, Once a fair and stately palace Radiant palace reared its head.edgar allan poe
Spread across seven hills in the northwest Himalayas among lush Valleys and forests of oak, rhododendron and pine is the capital of Himachal Pradesh that was once the summer capital of colonial India. And today, there is still more than a hint of the Raj in the former hill station of Shimla.
A Judge ought to prepare his way to a just sentence, as God useth to prepare his way, by raising Valleys and taking down hills: so when there appeareth on either side a high hand, violent prosecution, cunning advantages taken, combination, power, great counsel , then is the virtue of a Judge seen to make inequality equal; that he may plant his judgment as upon even ground.
I do not love the Sabbath, The soapsuds and the starch, The troops of solemn people Who to Salvation march. I take my book, I take my stick On the Sabbath day, In woody nooks and Valleys I hide myself away. To ponder there in quiet God's Universal Plan, Resolved that church and Sabbath Were never made for man.robert graves
The city is a unique combination of hills, spurs and Valleys to the North and East; a network ofmountain ranges which are crossed at a distance, by a magnificent crescent of new peaks, the mountains of Kullu and Spiti in North, the central range of the Eastern Himalayas in the east and South east. Shimla town occupies a unique place in the history of the Indian sub-continent. Emerging as a nostalgic reminder of their country, for the British officers, posted in the region, the town went on to occupy the centre stage during the hey days of the Raj .
