“Oh, Lucia the captain said softly, you are so little and so lovely. how I would have liked to have taken you to Norway and shown you the fiords in the midnight sun, and to China- what you've missed, Lucia, by being born too late to travel the Seven Seas with me! And what I've missed, too.”
R.A. Dick, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

“Knowledge and book learning are not wisdom," said the captain.

"Is this book wisdom?" asked Lucy, putting the manuscript back on the table.

"It has some elements of wisdom in it, me dear," replied the captain. "I did not lead a very wise life myself but it was a full one and a grown-up one. You come to age very often through shipwreck and disaster, and at the heart of the whirlpool some men find God.”
R.A. Dick, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

“It was quiet in the room. Only the clock ticked on in the remorseless, mechanical minutes that men have made for themselves to measure away the joy and sadness of their earthly lives.”
R.A. Dick, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
