THE WINDY IS A LADY SHIP. SHE LIVES, SHE BREATHES, SHE’S BRASS AND PLANK AND FULL OF SAIL. SHE'S A SHIP WITH A FIGUREHEAD ON HER SHOULDERS THAT PUFFS LIFE INTO HER OAK AND CANVAS RIG. HER HULL’S SO TRIM AND FIT IT’S CAUGHT THE FANCY OF A SEA SERPENT... AND THIS LOVE-STRUCK DRAGON WOOS HIS LADYSHIP ACROSS THE SEVEN SEAS.
"Great cities, ships, and works of art
Achievements setting Man apart.
O’er distant lands and seas he goes,
These budding Michelangelos."
"I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.
Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."
"And they made a calf in those days,
and rejoiced in the works of their hands."
