Quotes About Mountains And Climbing

In a sense everything that is exists to climb. All evolution is a climbing towards a higher form. Climbing for life as it reaches towards the consciousness, towards the spirit.

The climbing of earths heights, in itself, means little. That men and women want and try to climb them means everything.

What draws me to the type of snowboarding that I'm doing now is, I go through every emotion in life when I'm climbing these mountains. The fear. The anticipation before that.

That whole process is really addicting, and makes me feel alive.
