However hard I work, whatever accomplishments I have achieved, are nothing compared to those of Mountains. The tragedy of the adventurous spirit can only be comprehended by those who have stood upon the summits of mountains. We like to say that we have conquered this or that peak, but these are only fleeting moments of accomplishment. Unlike the mountain, we are the ones that must return to earth while the mountains continue, indifferent to the trifles of man. It’s at this point that we realize we can never be mountains. And that’s a sad prospect. But there is one hope for man and it is this: Unchanged by man, mountains will continue as they always have. Man, once touched by the experience of mountains, will never be the same.
