thrice & pinnacle

Quotations:

Complete Works of Virginia Woolf: The Voyage Out

Absorbed in her letters she did not notice that she had left the Euphrosyne, and felt no sadness when the ship lifted up her voice and bellowed thrice like a cow separated from its calf.

Mountains whose sides were flushed with red, but whose crowns were bald, rose as a pinnacle, half-concealing another pinnacle behind it.

Definitions:

thrice:
three times;

pinnacle:
1. a high pointed piece of rock, especially at the top of a mountain;
2.  the most important or successful part of sth;
3. a small pointed stone decoration built on the roof of a building.
