“Better to sleep with a sober cannibal than a drunk Christian.”

“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.” 

Moby Dick on line.  


  1. I approve of most all things having to do with Moby Dick.

    Are you following the Big Read?


  2. I read this in high school and it remains ones of my favorites!
