    You need to make the words you are querying stand out a little more. Please see what I've changed in your post.

    I'm not sure if I've put the quotation marks in the right place though. Whilst "from pillar to post" is a commonly used phrase, I don't know if you meant that "high and mountain" is a phrase, or if you wanted to know if "high" and "mountain" mean the same thing somehow.

    Can you please clarify your question?
