This bonus edition of i-TFTD is inspired by my two-week vacation a couple of years ago, amongst the snow-clad mountains of Himachal Pradesh in North India:
#161-1. It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.
(Another variation is:)
#161-2. You can never conquer the mountain. You can only conquer yourself.
#161-3. Nobody trips over mountains. It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble. Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain.
#161-4. In a flat country a hillock thinks itself a mountain.
#161-5. You cannot see the mountain near.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
#161-6. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?
All these have little to do with mountains and everything to do with ourselves, our perspectives.
