„Let us forget the other names of American statesmen, that have been stamped upon these hills, but still call the loftiest — WASHINGTON.“

—  Nathaniel Hawthorne, Context: Let us forget the other names of American statesmen, that have been stamped upon these hills, but still call the loftiest — WASHINGTON. Mountains are Earth's undecaying monuments. They must stand while she endures, and never should be consecrated to the mere great men of their own age and country, but to the mighty ones alone, whose glory is universal, and whom all time will render illustrious. "Sketches from Memory": The Notch of the White Mountains (1835)
