“The politer inhabitants of the seventeenth century referred to mountains disapprovingly as ‘deserts’; they were also castigated as ‘boils’ on the earth’s complexion, ‘warts,’ ‘wens,’ ‘excrescences’ and even, with their labial ridges and vaginal valleys, ‘Nature’s pudenda.’” - Robert Macfarlane, Mountains of the Mind
