How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.
It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top.

Revenge... is like a rolling stone, which, when a man hath forced up a hill, will return upon him with a greater violence, and break those bones whose sinews gave it motion.
I listened, motionless and still; And, as I mounted up the hill, The music in my heart I bore, Long after it was heard no more.

I really enjoyed staying at an encampment at the top of a hill in the Samburu Reserve in Kenya.

No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. It should be of the hill. Belonging to it. Hill and house should live together each the happier for the other.
Frank Lloyd Wright

Duke of Wellington
Some people mistake grit for sheer persistence - charging up the same hill again and again. But that's not quite what I mean by the word 'grit.'
