Mountains are a magnificent metaphor for life.
From a distance, the climb looks clear and smooth. But once you actually set out for the summit, you discover unexpected valleys and precarious ridges along the way.

If your internal compass isn't set to keep climbing, every stumble will give you an excuse to turn back.

And even when you do make it to the summit, you realise, you've just arrived at another mountain to climb, one that you couldn't see before you climbed this one.

My mother thought the greatest virtue of all was courage.
Because it allows all the other virtues to exist.

You're defined by your courage, and redeemed by your loyalty.

To fall in love, you have to take the risk of changing yourself for someone else.
Whenever you enter a relationship with someone, you have to let go of who you thought you were before you loved that person, because by loving them, who you are changes.

You either grow apart, or grow together, love has to be expanding, otherwise it'll never last.
