Karel Čapek: The Blue Chrysantemum
" ’I know a cure for everything. Salt water.’
’Salt water?’ I asked.
’Yes,’ he said, ’In one form or another; sweat, tears or the salt sea.’ "
Little drop of water
Little grain of sand
Makes the mighty ocean
And the solid land.
"Vertigo is not the fear of falling. It is the fear that you will be unable
to overcome the urge to hurl yourself into the void. "
"A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for."
John A. Shedd
