    Who will join in the march to the Rocky Mountains with me, a sort of high-pressure-double-cylinder-go-it-ahead-forty-wildcats- tearin’ sort of a feller?... Git out of this warming-pan, ye holly-hocks, and go out to the West where you may be seen.
    —Administration in the State of Miss, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    But I go with my friend to the shore of our little river, and with one stroke of the paddle, I leave the village politics and personalities, yes, and the world of villages and personalities behind, and pass into a delicate realm of sunset and moonlight, too bright almost for spotted man to enter without novitiate and probation.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Wachusett hides its lingering voice
    Within its rocky heart,
    And Allegheny graves its tone
    Throughout his lofty chart.
    Monadnock, on his forehead hoar,
    Doth seal the sacred trust,
    Your mountains build their monument,
    Though ye destroy their dust.
    Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791–1865)

    The mountain stood there to be pointed at.
    Pasture ran up the side a little way,
    And then there was a wall of trees with trunks;
    After that only tops of trees, and cliffs
    Imperfectly concealed among the leaves.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
