The fleeting hour of life of those who love the hills is quickly spent, but the hills are eternal. Always there will be the lonely ridge, the dancing beck, the silent forest; always there will be the exhilaration of the summits. These are for the seeking, and those who seek and find while there is still time will be blessed both in mind and body.

— Alfred Wainwright

The most almighty Alfred Wainwright quotes that will add value to your life

You were made to soar, to crash to earth, then to rise and soar again.


I went whenever I could, and always my eyes lifted to the hills.

I was to find a spiritual and physical satisfaction in climbing mountains and a tranquil mind upon reaching their summits, as though I had escaped from the disappointments and unkindness of life and emerged above them into a new world, a better world.


An objective is an ambition, and life without ambition is ... well, aimless wandering.
