Herman Melville
“Consider all this; and then turn to this 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 or, the Whale

Bill  Gates
“Most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a day - and overestimate what they can accomplish in a year.”
Bill Gates

Herman Melville
“Toes are rare in blubber-room veterans".”
Herman Melville, Moby Dick

Herman Melville
“Book! you lie there; the fact is, you books must know your places.”
Herman Melville, Moby Dick

Herman Melville
“...[T]he mind does not exist unless leagued with the soul...”
