Fountains of Men

“The mountains are fountains not only of rivers and fertile soil, but of men. Therefore we are all, in some sense, mountaineers, and going to the mountains is going home. Yet how many are doomed to toil in town shadows while the white mountains beckon all along the horizon!” — John Muir, in Steep Trails, edited by William Frederic Bade, 1918, pg. 43.
