To those who have struggled
with them, the mountains reveal beauties
they will not disclose to those who make no effort.
This is the reward the mountains give to effort.
And it is because they have so much to give, and give
it so lavishly to those who wrestle with them, that
those who love the mountains go back to them again
The mountains reserve their choice gifts for those who stand on their summits.
-Sir Francis Younghusband
