    During my youth, I had this mountain to conquer. It fled from under my feet like a hunted animal; it hid in mists, in the clouds in the sky and the cloud of leaves on the earth. Then, one day, without a word, it took me up to its peak, it made a path in its oaks and pines, and Lure appeared to me in the middle of a distant landscape. Wallowing like a heifer in a bed of blue mist.
