French term or phrase: en harmonie avec les cimes
I'm not sure whether this is a saying or just the author's words. I think it might be a saying because of the quotation marks around it. No source is cited.
"Nouveau guerrier sans autres armes que l'imagination et la volonte de convaincre, il rejette l'artifice politique et la guerre pour embrasser les valeurs de l'echange et de la vie. Nouveau pretre, il ne se detache pas de la nature, mais sait que son travail de producteur peut l'humaniser. Ainsi ses yeux et ses oreilles ne cessent jamais d'etre 'en harmonie avec les cimes'". Thanks for any suggestions, Karen

in harmony with high ideals
Explanation:
I'll be brief, since this is urgent.

The description is of a person whose only arms are his imagination and the will to convince. His values are the free exchange of ideas and life itself.

This is a person with lofty (in the positive sense) ideals; "les cimes" - the mountain-tops.
