An Inspiration from the Captain

To young men contemplating a voyage I would say go.
The tales of rough usage are for the most part exaggerations, as also are the tales of sea danger.
To face the elements is, to be sure, no light matter when the sea is in its grandest mood.
You must then know the sea, and know that you know it, and not forget that it was made to be sailed over.
                              Captain Joshua Slocum - 1898
