Herman Melville
“Consider the subtleness of the sea; how its most dreaded creatures glide under water, unapparent for the most part, and treacherously hidden beneath the loveliest tints of azure. Consider also the devilish brilliance and beauty of many of its most remorseless tribes, as the dainty embellished shape of many species of sharks. Consider, once more, the universal cannibalism of the sea; all whose creatures prey upon each other, carrying on eternal war since the world began.

Consider all this; and then turn to the green, gentle, and most docile earth; consider them both, the sea and the land; and do you not find a strange analogy to something in yourself? For as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all the horrors of the half-known life. God keep thee! Push not off from that isle, thou canst never return!”
Herman Melville, Moby Dick

Jean-Paul Sartre
“In football everything is complicated by the presence of the opposite team.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

Saki
“He is one of those people who would be enormously improved by death.”
Saki

Charles Bukowski
“the free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it - basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them.”
Charles Bukowski, Tales of Ordinary Madness

Benjamin Franklin
“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
Benjamin Franklin
