A hill is a landform that extends above the surrounding terrain. Hills often have a distinct summit, although in areas with scarp/dip topography a hill may refer to a particular section of flat terrain without a massive summit (e.g. Box Hill, Surrey).

Famous quotes containing the word hill:

    What rein can hold licentious wickedness
    When down the hill he holds his fierce career?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The longer a woman remains single, the more apprehensive she will be of entering into the state of wedlock. At seventeen or eighteen, a girl will plunge into it, sometimes without either fear or wit; at twenty, she will begin to think; at twenty-four, will weigh and discriminate; at twenty-eight, will be afraid of venturing; at thirty, will turn about, and look down the hill she has ascended, and sometimes rejoice, sometimes repent, that she has gained that summit sola.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    ‘O glorious Life, Who dwellest in earth and sun,
    I have lived, I praise and adore Thee.”
    A sword swept.
    Over the pass the voices one by one
    Faded, and the hill slept.
    Sir Henry Newbolt (1862–1938)
