Mount Whitney in California is the highest mountain peak of the contiguous United States (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peak.”   —   Gilbert K. Chesterton

(I can’t tell if he was saying this tongue-in-cheek, or if he was being figuratively metaphysical, or what.  You do see things up close when you’re in a valley.  And though things may seem small when you’re up on high, you see so much more!  You get the big picture from the peak.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I’ve never read any G.K. Chesterton, so I don’t know what he was talking about either, Unc Rave. The quote doesn’t seem to withstand much scrutiny; it’s like saying, “Who wants to see a stinkin’ forest, when you can just admire the trees?”

    Exactly, hal. Unless he’s referring to mountains themselves.(?) What else would seem “great” from a valley? Oh, well. — YUR
