one has seen

“You cannot stay on the summit forever. You have to come down again…. One climbs and one sees; one descends and one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself … by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one no longer sees, one can at least still know.”
René Daumal
