Herman Melville
“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,

That is my substitute for the pistol and ball.”
Herman Melville, Moby-Dick; or, The Whale

And your mind will punish you for believing both.”
