Only a mountain can get me that view with this fantastic horizon, and where you feel also powerful, at the same as you are very, very small, that is important philosophically. That the less you are in relation to the surroundings, the stars and the mountain, the more you intensely feel that you somehow symbolically get part of it. You get greater. You get on par with it. You get to feel good with it. So, the more tiny you are, the more in some sense you are together with something great and therefore, get something of that greatness.
- Arne Næss. From the documentary, Call of The Mountain
