"They crawl about in the abyss intent upon their own small concerns. ... Atlantic
liner, and which glimmers for a while in the sun for the first of my stay amidst its
pinnacles; but which vanishes, but for fragmentary glimpses, as I become one of
the grey creatures that crawl about like ants, at the bottom of its gloomy caverns.
... The artist, like the corporate executive, is a person of exceptional vision,
responsible for instructing his contemporaries, who rarely if ever attain
comparable heights.

... following its contours as it commanded We hesitantly and cautiously began to
follow it There was no one else around -- they were all swarming like ants down
below over the ruins of Machu Pijchu, and by the looks of the overgrown trail, ...
pulled by some unseen force, anxious to see what was around the next curve of
the mountain I wondered how many people had fallen to their deaths here, how
many skeletons lay at the bottom of the abyss Surely, there were many other ...

In contrast to the torn and ugly rent in the earth, the men worked with a beautiful
antlike orderliness; and in antlike silence, every man at his post, the gangers
walking about amongst them seeing that all was well. Clay-coloured the navvies
were: high-low boots, ... The runner was similarly attached by a rope tied to his

And the great sail, instead of tearing, collapsed of its own accord as the sailors
that held it taut were thrown off like ants into the angry black waters. "No!" Lero
howled in anguish, seeing another old friend, a sailor who had been on this ship
forever it seemed, ripped from his place near the bow and thrown far out into the
churning waters like a still puppet. "So, you're invincible? ... I hope to all the gods
that you fall like a dead weight and go straight to the bottom! I will not take you

A cave above a remote lake at the bottom of a long vertiginous line of rocky crag
below, accessible only by a rope, was his safe haven. The ancient name for the
lake was Lough Coumgaurha, ... called the 'Ariel Route' high on the south-facing
cliffs. Today, vertical routes like 'Emperor's Nose', 'Atom Ant Wall', 'Perpetual ...
Just beyond a grassy patch, I stood on the edge of a devilish gully, and peered

gossamer floating from her lips. An eagle flew overhead. In the blue sky its keen
eyes caught sight of the group struggling on the cliff like ants with loads on their

the abyss; his ear, ...
