Hill Quotations

What we know about the destination resort business is clearly established. But it's all about one thing, and one thing only. All of the razzmatazz and jazz we hear about facilities and everything else doesn't amount to a hill of beans. It's customer experience that determines the longevity and endurance of these enterprises.
Steve Wynn

After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
Nelson Mandela

Jeremy Taylor

Victor Hugo

It is easier to go down a hill than up, but the view is from the top.
