Christopher Hawke Quotes

It makes me wonder how many of the dreams we had originally have already been forgotten."

"Para vos puede ser fácil, por que estás en cero. Como dijiste hace rato, sos tu único equipaje. Pero yo he ido fabricándome tentaciones, y cayendo en ellas.

Quotes About Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

"There is a sacred horror about everything grand. It is easy to admire mediocrity and hills; but whatever is too lofty, a genius as well as a mountain, an assembly as well as a masterpiece, seen too near, is appalling. Every summit seems an exaggeration. Climbing wearies. The steepnesses take away ones breath; we slip on the slopes, we are hurt by the sharp points which are its beauty; the foaming torrents betray the precipices, clouds hide the mountain tops; mounting is full of terror, as well as a fall. Hence, there is more dismay than admiration. People have a strange feeling of aversion to anything grand. They see abysses, they do not see sublimity; they see the monster, they do not see the prodigy." - Author: Victor Hugo
